Is it possible to look SEXY over POWERPOINT?  There’s a new type of dating event where people get three minutes to do a PowerPoint presentation in front of a room of single people . . . explaining why those people should date their single friend.

The presentations use all the standard elements of PowerPoint . . . bulleted lists, graphs, and pictures. Right now, these events are going on in Boston and New York . . . but if they get popular enough, who knows?


Millennials make PowerPoint presentations to help friends score dates

Millennials, sick of dating apps, are turning to PowerPoint to find love. A new event called DateMyFriend.ppt encourages hopefuls to come to a bar in Brooklyn and give a three-minute presentation on one of their single friends, who has to awkwardly sit there while they're shown to the audience.
