Jocelyn* walks into the old Chinese restaurant sure she is in the wrong place. But a man in a tuxedo greets her immediately and hands her a photograph. Old and curling at the corners, it is a photo of a woman putting a coin into a jukebox. On the front in capital letters, near the bottom, someone has written the words FIND ME.
“I don’t understand?” Jocelyn says aloud. The man in the tuxedo smiles at her, flipping the photograph over and handing her a stopwatch and a silver pen. “Welcome to Speed Dating,” he says, as she reads the first of many instructions she will encounter that evening. Just then, the door opens behind her and another woman walks through, looking just as confused as Jocelyn feels. She has nice eyes, Jocelyn thinks to herself. “Hey.” The new arrival looks at her. “Hi,” she answers, and then: “Are you here for the dating event?” Jocelyn smiles. The man in the tuxedo approaches the newcomer, holding another photograph, a pen, and a stopwatch. He looks at both of them. “Bre, meet Jocelyn,” he says, nodding at them. “Jocelyn, Bre.” And then, “You two better get a move on. You have 25 minutes. I’ll see you at the end.” A wink, a flash of a smile, and he is gone. Bre and Jocelyn stare at one another. “Shall we?” says Jocelyn.
