Speed Dating Explained

The way that a speed dating event works is that an equal number of men and women, who have been screened first by the organisers, meet in a central location, usually in a relatively public space. The evening begins with an explanation of the rules and being given a ‘score card’, which is used to indicate your choices throughout the evening. Each person is given three minutes to chat to another person in an ordered fashion. If you feel that you have an attraction to the person you are talking to then you can mark your scorecard with a ‘yes’. At the end of the evening, the organisers will look through all of the scorecards and if your ‘yes’ matches another person’s ‘yes’ then they will exchange contact details between the couple and the rest is up to you.

While it does not guarantee that you will find your perfect match, it does take away a lot of the trepidation and uncertainty of meeting people in a more traditional sense. Matchmakers have been used in different cultures around the world for hundreds of years. Why should it not work now? The fantastic thing about signing up for a speed dating agency is that they are quite stringent about the sorts of people that they allow on their books. The owners of the speed dating websites and companies take their jobs very seriously and the reputation of speed dating is one of care and professionalism.

Speed dating is a warm and friendly way of getting to know people in a relaxed and convivial setting, without feeling any pressure or personal risk. Thousands of people have found love using speed dating services, and have started their lives together dancing the (three) ‘minute waltz’.
