People for dating
Unlike many bars, a speed dating event will, by necessity, be quiet enough for people to talk comfortably. Participants can come alone without feeling out of place; alternatively it is something that women who like to go out in groups can do together.Because the matching itself happens after the event, people do not feel pressured to select or reject each other in person.On the other hand, a couple that decides they are incompatible early on will have to sit together for the duration of the round.Most speed dating events match people at random, and participants will meet different "types" that they might not normally talk to in a club.Requirement for each event vary with the organizer.
At the end of each interval, the organizer rings a bell, clinks a glass, or blows a whistle to signal the participants to move on to the next date.
At the end of the date, they just go on with their day, either deciding not to date again through mutual agreement, or date again as friends or look at taking it further.
