Studies on dating
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.Other studies found speed-dating data useful as a way to observe individual choices among random participants.According to the New York Times, participants in speed dating experience an average of 2 in 10 or 3 in 10 matches.Online dating participants, in contrast, only find a compatible match with 1 in 100 or fewer of the profiles they study.In the UK, there are two companies that run events in more than twenty cities: Speed Dater and Slow Dating.The largest speed dating company in Australia is Speed Dating Australia Pty Ltd.Speed Dating, as a single word, is a registered trademark of Aish Ha Torah.
Specific age range based on gender is a common restriction for events.
They were the first to hold Speed Dating Events in Australia in 2004 and still operate to this present day.
Hurrydate was acquired by Spark Networks (Jdate/Christian Mingle).
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.
