Speed Dating 

When: Tue., Jan. 3, 7 p.m. 2012
Price: $30
According to psychologist Arthur Aron, it can take as little as 90 seconds for your brain to decide whether you like someone. That is, like someone. Aron discovered this when he experimented with text subjects by pairing them up for just 34 minutes. Couples who were complete strangers spent 30 minutes revealing intimate details about themselves, and the final four minutes just silently staring into each other's eyes. Several test subjects came away feeling deeply attracted to their lab partners, and two couples ended up married. Conduct your own experiment during the Connect Quickly Speed Dating event at the Drop (409 East 31st Street, 816-756-3767). "Through speed dating, you are given the chance to physically meet many great people," says Ahmad Battles, area coordinator for Connect Quickly. The 7 p.m. event is geared for men aged 27 to 38 and women 25 to 36. Registration costs $30. For more information, call 816-298-0020 or see connectquickly.com.
