The credit for introducing Speed Dating goes to Rabbi Yaacov Deyo. It all started in 1990s when he made arrangements for young, Jewish singles to meet other singles. Since then, singles night out events has come a long way and in today’s twenty first century it is increasingly becoming popular day by day. One major reason why speed dating goes well with many is that it offers multiple chooses for choosing the best mate. Here nothing is personal. Around ten or more men and women attend the event and each one is allotted four to seven minutes to interact. And if anyone likes anybody, they can collect contact details from the event organizer. It is that simple!! But even then there are few things that the attendee needs to bear in mind to make it a success.

The very first thing that comes into the notice is impression. And this becomes even more important given to the limited time each couple gets. Physical appearance does not matter every time, but when you have to impress someone within four to seven minutes of time, it does become critical. That night neither forget to put on your best attire nor to put up a smiling face. We all love to be in the company of jolly and bright people rather than with someone who is sloppy and boring. Thus a polished look on the night of your speed date will ensure that your partner will be eager to know more about you.

Next, it is also important to go well prepared for the singles night out to stay away from boredom. Again, time will play a vital role and to stay focused within the limited time, you should talk to know each other better rather than wasting time in silly and small chit chats. You should show your importance to the other person and only then there will be space for chemistry.

Furthermore, always be on time. It is not only impolite to arrive late and keep your date waiting but it can as well cost you to great extend. All speed dating events move really quick and in that case if you run late, your spot can be given away to somebody else. And even if your spot still remains for you, you can still lose the chance of dating two to three possible matches on that special night.

Studies have also shown that it is very imperative to be honest while answering your questions to your date on any speed dating event. This is so because, such events are hosted not only to have good time but as well to find potential matches. And if you happen to fake around, a lot of confusions and future complications can rise up.

So, next time you show up at a speed dating event in the DMV area, don’t forget the tips discussed here.  Good Luck! Have fun! Be open minded!
