Is speed dating still a thing?
Speed dating is not a thing of the past - its alive and well and there are lots of events people can attend.
What do you say during speed dating?
You can talk about anything you like. But hobbies, work-life, family, travel and other interests are all good. A good opener is to ask whether the person has speed dated before. If they have been to lots of events, choose more unusual questions to avoid a sense of repetition for them (thatll help you stand out).
How long do you get in speed dating?
How long do speed dating events last? First of all, think about how long you want to give participants to get to know each other – the length of each speed date will vary depending on the organiser, although the norm is usually between three and eight minutes.
