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.
One of the advantages that speed dating has over online speed dating and online dating in general is that when being face to face with someone, you get a better sense of who they are due to their body language, gestures, tonality and more.
There have been several studies of the round-robin dating systems themselves, as well as studies of interpersonal attraction that are relevant to these events.
On the other hand, a couple that decides they are incompatible early on will have to sit together for the duration of the round.At the end of the event participants submit to the organizers a list of who they would like to provide their contact information to.If there is a match, contact information is forwarded to both parties.Most speed dating events match people at random, and participants will meet different "types" that they might not normally talk to in a club.
On the other hand, the random matching precludes the various cues, such as eye contact, that people use in bars to preselect each other before chatting them up.It also found that dialogue concerning travel resulted in more matches than dialogue about films.
