Speed dating study selectivity
Online dating participants, in contrast, only find a compatible match with 1 in 100 or fewer of the profiles they study.
As reported by the BBC in the Science of Love, it only takes between 90 seconds to 4 minutes of face-to-face interaction to determine attraction, which gives speed dating an advantage over online dating.
At the end of the event participants submit to the organizers a list of who they would like to provide their contact information to.
There are many speed dating events now in the United Kingdom, Canada, and the United States.
Requirement for each event vary with the organizer.
