You’ve probably heard about speed dating through films and the media or maybe a friend has even tried it but are you still a little baffled about what really goes on at one of these events?Who attends them, where do they take place and why do people put themselves out there to date a bunch of strangers?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.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.The first speed-dating event took place at Peet’s Café in Beverly Hills in late 1998.Usually advance registration is required for speed dating events.We are regularly approached by venues looking to have the cheekiest in the world of dating to their spots.We say yes to a very few - limiting it to locales that are at once casually hip and romantically inspiring.
If there is a match, contact information is forwarded to both parties.
