What is Speed Dating
Speed dating is a formalized matchmaking process or dating system (a variant of a meeting system) whose purpose is to encourage people to meet a large number of new people. Its origins are credited to Rabbi Yaacov Deyo of Aish HaTorah, as a way to ensure that more Jewish singles met each other in large cities where they were outnumbered by non-Jews. It has been made more popular by its use on dating game shows such as Fifth Wheel and has recently become popular in the gay community. Supporters argue that speed dating saves time, as most people decide if they are romantically compatible very quickly, and first impressions are often permanent.
In the Ticket4one.com's version of speed dating, men and women are invited to attend an event or activity such as Learn to surf, Mystery bus tours, Motivation courses. At the end of the event participants submit to Ticket4one.com's website and locate the course or event that they participated in to apply their lists of who they would like to get to know better. when two pepole submit the same interest an email is forwarded to each member alerting them of their compatibility. Contact information cannot be traded during the initial meeting, in order to reduce pressure (especially on women) to accept or reject a suitor to their face.
Proponents of speed dating cite its advantages as:
It allows singles to meet a large number of new people in one easy event.
It is especially efficient for busy professionals or those that have limited social circles.
It levels the playing field for men and women.
Men do not have to play their traditional role as the aggressor - both men and women are forced to meet and interact.
The structured interaction helps shy people to overcome their inhibitions.
The matching process occurs after the event, ensuring people do not have to face rejection in person
One study of speed dating concluded that one course or event is more than sufficient to determine if the range of a mate's hormones, a key indicator of immunities, is complementary (different) from one's own. This is claimed by some researchers to be the key factor in the so-called "first impression", and since it is olfactory (smell-based), there is no need for two individuals considering child-raising to spend more time on first impressions, it being more important to "sniff out" other mates.
