Speed Dating

Thursday, August 30th, 2007

There are many single people in today’s Society, and this is mainly because nobody has enough time to go out Dating anymore.

If you’re single for a long time, then your friends and family are unlikely to be very understanding. Perhaps when you first lose your girlfriend or boyfriend, and they will offer their support, but you will find this will disappear quite quickly.

Most people aren’t single, because they choose to be, actually the vast majority would love to meet their Soul mate, but there are a number of factors, which hinder people when looking for their Date. Modern lifestyles are frantic and hectic at the best, and very few people have enough time to go to the Pubs and Bars in search of their perfect match. Most people actually hate looking for Dates in the normal venues, as they find it humiliating and stressful.

Online Dating is one way to find your perfect Date, while still keeping up with your day to day obligations. However Online Dating doesn’t allow you to meet people face to face, and have a Chat with them. Speed Dating allows you to have a fun time, and also meet people face to face, and it takes up a certain amount of time, that you can adjust your schedule for.

Speed Dating differs, but the general process goes like this:

1. You register for one of the Speed Dating events.
2. You receive an ID tag, Scorecard, and Rules.
3. On the evening you have between 3 & 10 minutes to Chat to each Date.
4. Tick “Match” if you are interested in seeing this person again.

There are many people and Companies, which will organise Speed Dating events throughout the country, and you can register with one of these Companies often in Person or by Phone or Internet. Once you have registered, the Host will organise the venue and notify you. You will receive an Identification tag that you should wear, so that people will know who you are, when filling in their Score Cards.

You will also receive your own Score Card, and this is for you to note down exactly what you think of people. The Score Cards are collected at the end of the evening, and the results are collated. If two people both say that they would be interested in meeting one another after that night, then they will both be given the contact details.

When you meet the Dates, you will typically have between 3 and 10 minutes to get to know each person, and once you’ve decided you then mark your Score Card accordingly. Once your time is up normally a bell will ring, and then you should move onto the next person. Most Speed Dating events last a couple of hours, and after this time any matching parties are notified.

You should be quite selective, when deciding which Company to book your event with, and it’s a good idea to go with a reliable and well established Dating Company. You don’t want to go to a poorly organised Event, so it’s best to stick to people that have done it before.

Even if you don’t meet Mr Right, it’s still an opportunity to have some great Fun! Plus it gives you something to talk about with your friends!
