Romance In Bloom at Comic Con’s Sci Fi Speed Dating
The uproarious laughter and occasional shouts coming from the room were a sure giveaway that host and MC, Ryan Glitch, had suitably soothed the nerves of the once-shaky men and women attending the first session of Sci Fi Speed Dating at this weekend’s Salt Lake Comic Con. Judging from the potential dater’s obvious enjoyment, Sci Fi Speed Dating is proving to be a Comic Con hit. The events continue through Saturday, with sessions daily at 2 p.m. and 4 p.m., and sessions for those seeking partners in the LGBTPQ community each day at 11 a.m.
