At first I thought this company was the best thing since slice bread, until I…""I came home on Christmas Eve to find three pipes leaking all over the basement.They were here within an hour and quickly fixed the emergency.Speed dating began in the 1990s when a Rabbi with the Aish Ha Torah Institute in Los Angeles developed the idea of allowing people to meet for quick snippets and then, if two people expressed interested in following up, encouraging them to continue exploring the relationship.While other organizations and companies have expanded on that idea, Aish Ha Torah still owns the trademark Speed Dating and Aish Ha Torah branches throughout North America sponsor speed dating events for Jewish singles in their localities.During the dating portion of the evening, a predetermined group of individuals will stay seated at the same tables throughout the night, while the rest of the participants will move from table to table.When the allotted time is up, the host will ring a buzzer or bell signifying that it is time to move to the next date.At the end of the evening, if two participants indicate an interest in meeting each other for a longer period of time, they receive each other’s contact information and can move their relationship onward.
On the special night, it can also be helpful to have a small card with helpful "getting to know you" questions at each table to facilitate conversation between potentially bashful participants.
Speed dating is designed to give participants the opportunity to go on mini dates with anywhere from 10 to 25 (or more) people in a single evening.
Each date lasts between 3 and 10 minutes, giving the pair time to get to know each other while also keeping them from being stuck with a bad match for too long.
Whether you have 10 participants or 50, you'll also leave with a few extra dollars in your pocket through registration or cover fees. Be sure to also have your bar open and stocked, as a drink or two can go a long way towards helping participants relax and open up.
You can also offer appetizers and small plates for customers to munch on after the dates have finished up and everyone is mingling.
