I had my buddy Luke Cuccurullo on the podcast to chat about his newest business: Unplugged Dating. You got to be a great host in order to put on amazing event after amazing event. Full Belly Laughs is the intersection of when food meets funny, and we like to describe ourselves as a dinner party meets board game night. With that in mind it was nice to have a chat with someone that knows how to run a great event.

Full Belly Laughs Podcast Episode 148 Show Notes

Luke and Brian chat about their education and how they fell into starting their own brands and businesses. That leads them into chatting about Luke's latest venture: Unplugged Dating. Their goal is to foster connections and remove technology to facilitate that. It's a fresh reinvention of an old dating tactic, and it's working! The reviews are clear: people really enjoy the events. It's a nice change of pace from the swipe left or right smart phone world.This is not a sponsored episode. Brian is friends with Luke in real life and endorses his business without any compensation. Brian really appreciates the mission of Unplugged Dating, and wanted to share it with the listeners. Luke also has a lot to offer in the way of running a great event. Since the cast is about hospitality and entertaining, it fits with the whole magic of hanging out and having a good time.

Speed Dating Pro Tips

From the conversation here are some things to consider if you want to try out speed dating:

  1. Don't ask water cooler questions. Avoid stuff like "Where did you go to school? Where do you work?" Talking about the weather is also pretty mopey. In speed dating you don't have a lot of time, so ask questions that let you actually learn about the person.
  2. Be a good sport. Obviously not every person you meet is going to be the love of your life, but it doesn't mean that the brief time ya'll have together needs to be miserable. So what if you're not attracted. Be a good sport and hang in there with some solid conversation for about five minutes.
  3. Don't be creepy.
