Good news, my otaku brothers! There may be opportunities beyond our dakimakuras! Yes, you love your waifu. But you need a backup plan in case things don't work out.
That's why you should consider Otaku Speed Dating, a new dating service in New York City. It holds hour long speed dating events that match single anime fans with each other. At the end, the participants fill out cards expressing who they'd like to get to know better. The service then introduces matches to each other. Rocket News 24 gives us the details:
Participants must be 18 or older, but there’s no dress code to adhere to. Otaku Speed Dating says to come in whatever is comfortable for you. The company even expressly states that light cosplay is welcome, although it asks that attendees refrain from wearing bulky, walkway obstructing outfits or bringing weaponry, even of the fake variety. Snacks and soft drinks are served at all events, and alcohol can be purchased at certain venues if you’re over 21 and need a glass of liquid courage.
