SocialSpeed

 

Student ( freshman year)

Tourist  

Single man/woman.

Name Andreea G. Andrei R. Ioana P.
Age 19 32 27
Location Iasi, Romania Paris, France Bucharest, Romania
Social Life At this age, the main thing that defines her is the thirst for all new things and experiences. Until last fall she lived with her parents in her home town Bacau.  Since October 2010 she has been  living in Iasi.  For her, going to university was a challenge because she had to leave home,   separate from her parents and beginning the process of finding her identity, as an adult, and her place in the world. Because his earnings are above average and because he works at least 50 hours per week, when he has some free time he likes to make the most of it. She doesn’t have time for dating wrong persons.
Work Life She is a student in her  freshman year at Computer Science. He works as  a software developer, but now  he is on vacation. She is a hard working woman.
Goals A new city for Andreea meant new people and new friends. That is why she was glad to take part of a Social Speed event. From her point of view, it’s a fun way to know new people and because you only have a couple of minutes to talk with each one, all kinds of crazy questions pop in your head. He believes  that the person blesses the place. That is way when he travels he thinks it is very important to know and understand the residents. Because of that, he was glad to accept our proposal for the Social Speed participation. Because she would rather lose just a couple of minutes before finding out that she doesn’t really find herself compatible with a certain guy, she was keen for her first Social Speed. From her point of view, this application is the perfect combination between online dating and real life dating. She knew from the start that this was not a Speed Dating application, but she thought that this kind of experience could have only payoffs, because you never know. For her it  was obvious that this kind of positive thinking was all that she needed. After five Social Speed events, Ioana has twice as many friends as before because she related with busy women like her and she got to make her dream come true: she met the love of her life.
