It has been a long time since the world was first introduced to the concept of two minute noodles, then speed yoga, speed aerobics, speed salsa and now it has warmly embraced the idea of speed dating. Speed dating is a concept, which has fast been gaining acceptance among masses all over the world. Individuals, who are single and are looking forward to get hitched, are more than glad with the concept of speed dating.
Gone are the days, when a man had to wait until the fifth or sixth date to adjudge whether a relationship is going to work out or not. Moreover, the biggest hurdle that most of the single individuals face is landing up with a date in the first place. You can’t exactly expect to go out with any other random person, you see on the street for a date. A date has to be with someone special.
And speed dating allows you to simply find that “special” person without much of a hassle. The concept of speed dating basically means that a large number of single men and women are invited together for a social gathering in a room where they get to spend exactly three minutes with each member of the opposite sex who is present in the room. After the three minutes are over, both the man and woman can proceed to the next person.
All the members who are present in the hall are given a sheet of paper where they tick either yes or no in front of the name of the person they have just interacted with. This assessment is done for obvious reasons and at the end of the day; these sheets are passed on to the organizers of the event.
The organizers then try to find out any possible matches so that they can interact further and get to know each other in a better manner. The fun elements which are part and parcel of the concept of speed dating, such as the sophisticated restraint and an extremely well-polished exterior which the participants try to project in front of the other sex are just some of them.
There are certain sections of people who are apprehensive about the concept of speed dating. Speed dating is believed to be an idea through which people can only form a very shallow opinion about the other person as the time provided to interact with them is really very less.
Most of the speed daters admit that they often end up forming a very judgmental opinion about the other person in this limited time. Speed daters even admit that they could have probably fallen for a candidate whom they had rejected after the “set” three-minute span, provided they had a chance to have a proper conversation with them.
Don’t forget, speed dating has it’s own charm. The prospect of meeting hundreds of potential suitors, under a single roof both excites and sounds scary at the same time. Yet, it is a technique, which every one wants to try and who knows, they just might end up finding their true love in a matter of three minutes.
