According to French magazine Elle the next thing to hit the singles scene after ‘speed-dating’ is ?quiet parties?. This is already the craze at the Parisian hot spot Tanija. Participants are united in a room in total silence. It is forbidden to speak a word. To order a drink or chat up a date participants need to use a pencil and paper supplied by the venue. Leftover scraps of paper show conversations ranging from the simple: ? Hi may I offer you a drink?? to the more creative ?Your beauty leaves me speechless?. Two hours later it?s all about body language and maximum decibels as everybody gets on the dance floor.
