What you'll learn in this communications course:

By showing how to be approachable, use verbal and non-verbal love signals and engage in small talk, coffee daters are able to circulate and percolate with greater ease during this provocative evening. Coffee mating is a series of on-going, fast, five minute one-to-one exchanges or "mini dates." Throughout the evening, men and women pair off, talk for a short, limited time, and then "snowball" and move on to the next potential "date." Some call it romantic musical chairs, and others call it speed-dating. After each date, coffee daters fill in a "yes" or "no" on their date cards. If the attraction is mutual, a match is made.

Coffee mating is an organized, low pressure setting that appeals to many weary of bars and large social events. It eliminates the awkwardness of asking for a telephone number or feeling pressure to give a number, and it provides a sure-fire way to meet many people in a short period of time. Coffee mating gives new meaning to the expression, "Let's meet over a cup of coffee!" coffee mating takes place at Cosi coffee house and sandwich bar. Cosi, which stands for comfortable, friendly, and of course, cozy, is the perfect sophisticated atmosphere for coffee mating.
