Speed dating probably best suits busy careerists who would benefit from meeting as many people as they can within a short period of time. This includes busy individuals such as lawyers or performers who have no time for pursuing romance simply because they have spent a decade or so focusing on education and then launching a business.
Speed dating also suits health professionals and individuals that work off-hours, such as waitresses, shift-workers, and health professionals. Speed dating is ideal for those who always find themselves working the traditional date nights such as Friday and Saturday night.
Most speed dating events are geared towards those who are looking for a more serious relationship, or a long-term connection. This is of use to those who are sick of the immaturity or addictions that come hand-in-hand with people you meet in bars and clubs. It might be a more efficient way to meet someone who is not intent on wasting your time with his or her emotional problems.
However keep in mind, that some speed dating dates are not as serious as others are when it comes to match-making. If it is in a club or bar, the point of the exercise might be to have casual sex. If this is not for you, then practice “Buyer Beware” and read the fine print on the poster or question the organisers or others who have attended to see what it is really all about
This “mating sport” also will appeal to those who have become frustrated with the anonymity and long-distance aspects of online dating. Unlike online dating, what you see at a Speed Dating event is what you are going to get. There is no false advertising such as lying about one’s age or weight allowed. The problem with blind dates and personals is that they do not satisfy a very crucial requirement needed in order for two people to hit it off and see each other again: physical attraction and chemistry.
Speed dating allows you to meet in person and see if the two of you actually click. You are not required to waste the time that you would meeting someone on a blind date. On a blind date, many squander hours of time being courteous and patient with an individual they would rather just get away from.
