Need For a Speed Date?


As our technology has become a lot more innovative, it seems that society is always in need of the better and faster way of doing things. The world of dating and relationships is no different. Try asking your parents how they met each other. They will probably tell you that it took a long time before they actually went on a formal date. From arranged marriages to blind dates now come the speed date — a relationship mechanism that aims to change the world of dating. Or will it?

In our dynamic and fast-paced environment, sometimes we feel that 24 hours in a day may not be enough. We whiz through quick lunches, meetings and conference calls. We get lunches on the go and shortcut versions of messages. With society’s obsession for speed, even getting to meet potential partners is included in the mix.

A speed date lasts for just about seven minutes. Before you try to dismiss this as some form of Olympic sport, take heed. Yes, you have around seven to ten minutes to make or break your conversation. With the limited time left, you want to be sure that you can make an excellent speed date and make a good first impression.

How does it work? Single guys and girls meet in a particular place. This would typically be in restaurants, bars or coffee shops. With only a nametag, a scorecard and a smile, they partner with the first speed date they meet and talk for about seven to ten minutes. There are no limits to what they can talk about, just as long as they don’t share any personal information yet). Seven minutes later, an alarm sounds off, and they move on to the next speed date. The guys typically move chairs, but it could differ in other groups. At the end of the day, they “rate” the people they have met, and the speed date hosts will match them up and provide phone numbers so they can see each other again.

Would going on a speed date be successful? Based on statistics, almost half of them get to find a potential match after the actual event. While some may feel hesitant about talking to about ten different men in less than an hour, it has shown great results for other couples who didn’t really expect anything, but ended up finding someone whom they’ve shared a “spark” with.

The question is still pretty clear — are you really about to tell that you’d like a person or not in a matter of minutes? Or are you going by the principle that first impressions last? The only downside to the speed date is that you may dismiss someone who could potentially be interesting. On the other hand, the seemingly perfect match may also not be as great. Going on a speed date can be fun and exciting, but do not forget to still keep your other options open. Just have fun and enjoy the event with your friends!
