Hi everybody

In Britain Speed dating involves men and women meeting in a room and finding out as much as they can about possible partners in three minutes. It's proving very popular with Britain's young people who find that they haven't got the time to meet that special one.

At a speed dating event you are given three minutes to talk, one on one, with a member of the opposite sex. Then a bell is rung and you move to another person and start chatting again. By the end of the evening you will have spoken with up to twenty men or women!

If, by the end of a conversation, you fancy the person or would like to see them again, you write it down on a card. Then, if the other person also fancies you, the organisers will contact you with their details.

But is three minutes long enough to make an impression and work out if you want to see someone again? Research suggests that chemistry can be felt within the first thirty seconds of meeting someone, and that is what speed dating is all about, knowing quickly if you are going to like someone.


But i dont know there are speed dating or not , please tell me and whats your opinion?

That's about as long as my dates ever lasted, Abbas.
I'm not a chemist, but I think I can say that not all atoms attracted to each to form molecules will make a bond so strong that another attractor cannot undo it.

Three minutes is almost excessive!

If you omitted the conversation, and stuck to 30 seconds of visual inspection, you could meet six times as many people.

I expect it would only work for people who are outgoing. This would not work well for shy people, they take more time to get to know.

I suspect that shy people would never sign up for speed dating.

Oh, and MrP...is 30 seconds really necessary? 5 is more than enough. Emotion: wink

Well, I didn't want to appear to encourage overly casual relationships; but yes, I'm inclined to agree. Which makes it 720 introductions in all.

Hi guys,

I think that in N. America, statistics suggest we are working on 'speed marriages' these days. Look at Hollywood as an example.
