Speed dating set up
Speed Dating, as a single word, is a registered trademark of Aish Ha Torah.
Speed dating, as two separate words, is often used as a generic term for similar events.
The day it was posted online was the day it sold out for women. Then I personally e-mailed them (after reinstating my own account—on my dime) and discussed the opportunity with each.
I spent more time researching dates for these women than I ever did for myself. In the 24 hours before the event, I was out four, almost five, women.
The first speed-dating event took place at Peet’s Café in Beverly Hills in late 1998.
Because the matching itself happens after the event, people do not feel pressured to select or reject each other in person.If you approach your encounters mindfully, you may find a rare common interest or a shared passion.Although it might not be right for you, I think speed-dating represents the essence of why we date, despite our pasts, despite our disappointments. And every eight minutes, there’s more to hope for: that maybe, someday, there will be no need to ring for assistance.One wrote me the day prior asking if she could still get a refund, and I explained that because she was confirmed this was not the policy.“I’ll just show up then,” was her one-sentence, resigned e-mail reply. Speed-dating is one of many ways to meet a new love, but it is not right for everyone.
