I only attended one "Speed Dating" event, so I'm no expert, but....

Basically there are 10 women and 10 men. Everyone is given a number on a name tag and a sheet to mark yes or no. Each woman is at a small table. One man sits with one woman at her small table, a bell rings and you have 8 minutes to basically get to know each other, ask questions, etc. If I like her, I would check the yes block to her corresponding number. If she likes me, she would check the yes block corresponding to my number. At the end of 8 minutes, another bell rings and the guys move to the next table, the women stay put. In the end, I (being a guy would have moved to 10 tables) and met 10 women. 8 minutes each.

At the end you turn your "yes" & "no" sheet into the coordinator. Let's say my number is 3 and I liked woman #8. And lets say woman #8 checked the "yes" block for guy #3 (which is me). Then the coordinator will contact both of us by e-mail and tell us we had a mutual match. The coordinator will then forward the contact information we provided (some use e-mail address, some use phone number). At that point, it is up to us (guy #3 and woman #8) to contact each other and set up a real date.

You can have more than one "yes" block checked. But the coordinator won't will not forward contact information unless there is a mutual match.

Let's say, I also liked woman #6 and I checked the "yes" block for woman #6, but she despised guy #3 (me) and checked the "no" block, well there would not be a mutual match and thus I would not receive her contact information and she would not receive mine.

Any questions??

I don't know how true this is... but I had heard that "Speed Dating" was actually started/invented by a Jewish Rabbi. He was looking for a way to put Jewish young men (in his congregation) with Jewish young women, thus he came up with this idea.

Again, not an expert here, but I've been told that in the Jewish faith, the religion follows the mother. So, if a Jewish man wants Jewish children he must marry and have children with a Jewish woman.

Eventually, the idea (of Speed Dating) bled into the general public. I think there are several companies that run "Speed Dating" events. (Mostly in major cities)

there will always be something new on the horizon but doesn't it always come down to CLICKING ?? or at least a mutual interest of some sort
