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.
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 event participants submit to the organizers a list of who they would like to provide their contact information to.
Its origins are credited to Rabbi Yaacov Deyo of Aish Ha Torah, originally as a way to help Jewish singles meet and marry.
Speed Dating, as a single word, is a registered trademark of Aish Ha Torah.
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, feedback and gratification are delayed as participants must wait a day or two for their results to come in.
