Preparing Arriving Dating Community Q&A Speed dating is a process that allows single people the opportunity to meet many prospective romantic matches in one place at scheduled speed dating events.

The format for such an event involves short, 3 to 10 minute face-to-face sessions with each available match, during which time both participants may discuss whatever they like.

Researchers asked a few questions before the event aimed at understanding competency/skills and degrees of separation.

If the success and spin-offs from the Farmer Wants a Wife concept is anything to go by, Ballarat’s newest networking event will be just the thing to help local businesses find their perfect match.

It can also increment roman numerals and ordinals (1st, 2nd, 3rd, ...). And if you're feeling especially charitable, follow tpope on Twitter and Git Hub.

In visual mode, letters of the alphabet are supported.

Some years ago I caved to my curiosity and tried it out myself. When the little buzzer went off after three minutes, I often found myself still trying to explain to my bedazzled dating partner why my last name has four syllables (it is Dutch).

Women in Technology (womenintechnology.org, @WITWomen) organized a unique “speed-dating”-like speaker’s format at the Lessons from the Tech Tank program on June 15.

The format gave budding entrepreneurs, intrapreneurs, and professionals a unique opportunity to learn about a range of business areas from marketing to operations, and fundraising.

The concept of rapid-fire dating has gained tremendous popularity, spreading to cities all over the world.

One speed-dating company in New York City, for example, holds a gathering almost every day.

After the "dating" sessions conclude, participants take notes and score or rank each of the people they were paired up with.
