The Art of Speed Dating Revealed

What is There
There are a number of people that use speed dating as a way to try to meet new people in hopes of finding someone that they are romantically compatible with. With everything from speed dating parties to websites, and of course the traditional organized events, there are plenty of opportunities out there for those who are interested.

Some History

Speed dating is traced back to a rabbi that was looking for a way to get Jewish singles together in hopes that they would be able to find someone to marry. A trademarks is held on the words combined together by the Jewish organization that the rabbi belonged to.

Gaining Popularity

It was in late 1998 that the first official event occurred, and since then there have been several of these events organized that have been non-religious. What these have done is to copy the style of the original events that were designed to be religious and use the design for those of all backgrounds.


Speed dating events have gained even more popularity through being shown in movies such as Hitch and The 40-year-old Virgin as well as a number of television shows that it has been seen on like Sex and the City, Frasier, Monk, and even The Simpsons. Through its portrayal in such shows as Frasier and Sex and the City some may have made the assumption that those of higher class prefer this method of meeting people for romantic interests over other methods, and this is possible one of the things that helped lead to the overwhelming popularity of the events.

How it Works

The basic idea behind speed dating is to meet as many people as possible in a rather short amount of time. This is done by having those who attend each spend just a few minutes of the event with each member of the opposite sex that shows up. What this is intended to do is let people decide off of nothing more than just a first impression whether or not the other person might be someone that they could be romantically involved with or not. This seems to work really well due to the fact that human nature is to judge others off of the first impression that we get of them. If the impression is bad, then we are not at all likely to be attracted to them in a romantic way, but if it is good, then there is a chance that it could lead to romance. This also relies on what is commonly referred to as “chemistry” between two people. There are many times that you meet someone and just know that there is an interest there immediately. The combination of the first impression and instincts of attraction make this a really easy way to find a date.

To Summarize

All in all, speed dating is a great concept that originally began as a way for singles of a Jewish background to meet the right person for them to marry. From there it became a very popular event all over, only aided in popularity by movies and television shows. Now it is one of the more popular ways to find someone to share romantic interests with and even has a foot in the door of the World Wide Web with speed dating websites available now.
