Cupid speedating creative dating arrangement
There are many speed dating events now in the United Kingdom, Canada, and the United States.
Requirement for each event vary with the organizer.
Men and women are rotated to meet each other over a series of short "dates" usually lasting from three to eight minutes depending on the organization running the event.
On the other hand, the random matching precludes the various cues, such as eye contact, that people use in bars to preselect each other before chatting them up.
According to the New York Times, participants in speed dating experience an average of 2 in 10 or 3 in 10 matches.
At the end of each interval, the organizer rings a bell, clinks a glass, or blows a whistle to signal the participants to move on to the next date.
At the end of the event participants submit to the organizers a list of who they would like to provide their contact information to.
You'll meet other people in your age and interest group through a series of face-to-face six minute "pre-dates" in a private area at a local upscale restaurant/bar. After a successful "match" and quick exchange of e-mails, I asked Theresa to a local concert.
