What Is Speed Dating?

Speed dating is the process of meeting a large group of different people within a very short space of time.

The usual way that this sort of event is organised is that a row of tables are set up and women take their place and make themselves comfortable while the men have to move from table to table.

There is usually a set time for each mini date which is signalled by a whistle, a bell or a siren. Each time the whistle sounds, the men have to get up and move to their next location or their next “date”.

Different organisations will set the number of people that they have at these proceedings at different amounts. Some can be quite intimate while others can be like a real cattle market. This can be fun depending on the type of person you are.

Why Has Speed Dating Become So Popular?

Speed dating has become very popular in recent times due to a couple of factors. It is a nice and easy way to try and meet a perspective partner and it all happens in an atmosphere that is non threatening.

The usual choice of trying to meet new people tends to be either a bar or a dance club and sometimes these places are not the most congenial settings to engage with like minded people. Clubs may not be a choice that older people would feel comfortable in either.

Taking part in a speed dating event gives you a little bit more of a guarantee that all the other speeddaters are in attendance for the same reasons that you are and that is to hopefully meet new and exciting people who are looking to enter into a serious relationship.

These events will also help to ensure that you do not end up with someone for too long. That is great if you are talking to a person that you have no attraction to at all and do not want prolong the conversation. You do not have to feel guilty about the end of your mini date. As soon as the bell goes, you can move on to a new possibility.

A lot of online dating services will allow you to register and fill in all the relevant details about yourself and the type of person you would like to be matched to. They can’t promise to fulfill every wish that you have but they do try to be selective and gather together similar types of people. Once you attend a couple of events, you may enjoy it so much that you will become a serial speed dater
