How to set up speed dating event
Thankfully, technology has made it somewhat easier to connect with people, by using websites such as Match or e Harmony.While some people find success with these dating websites, others prefer to meet their potential partners in person.
The extra time is more than worth it to ensure you walk into the room feeling confident and excited to meet your potential matches. Speaking of time, give yourself some wiggle room to make sure you get to the event on time.
Speed dating did not come about until 1998 when Rabbi Yaacov Deyo brought a group of friends together to brainstorm how to bring together single members of the Jewish community with "maximum efficiency." The first-speed dating event took place a few weeks later at a coffee shop in Los Angeles.
Deyo and his colleagues then trademarked their event as "Speed Dating," and planned on filing a patent for the concept.
In the traditional format, attendees flaunt a name tag with their name or nickname, receive a scorecard to keep track of their dates and proceed to have quick conversations with other attendees.
People then mark down on their scorecard who they are interested in meeting again.
