Other popular speed dating companies include Hurry Date and 8-Minute Dating.Speed dating first evolved over a decade ago, but it has become much more popular in recent years, especially among baby boomers and seniors.Perhaps the increasing need for companionship is to blame, or maybe the adrenalin-pumping nature of the event makes it so attractive.
With greater wisdom and dating experience, older adults tend to know exactly what they are looking for in a partner.
It is a formalized process in which the participants are broken up into pairs and rotate partners every 3-8 minutes (depending on the event).
Each pair sits down and gets to know one another, or “date”.
If two participants have written down each other’s names, the event organizer will forward the contact information to both parties.
(The idea is that the participants will not feel pressure to accept or request contact information face to face.) The first organized speed-dating event took place in 1998 in Beverly Hills, California.
