In contrast to regular dating, where people meet for a couple of hours at a time and do fun stuff, power dating is spending large blocks of time together at a point in the relationship (usually early) when dating would normally involve far less.
Yea, we had dinner Wednesday and he finally left Thursday afternoon. We're power dating, I guess.

With everyone lacking time for anything outside of work resembling an actual social life many take what’s called a powerdate. Not unsimilar to a power nap the power date takes a traditional date and compounds into one short sweet but unfulfilling chance to get to minimally spend time with someone.
hey Jess what are you doing for lunch? I’m not taking a lunch I have a brief I have to get through and fit in a ten minute power date with Paul before my scheduled panic attack at 1.
