Of course, in same-sex speed dating events this isn't necessary.

Prequalification is important in some speed dating groups if the group is targeted to certain ages such as seniors only or under 30s only, although many speed dating groups are not age specific.

Usually, each group is limited to less than 10 minutes of chatting before one member rotates to form a new group of two.

Typically, the participants cannot exchange contact information during the speed date.

Instead, they must make a note of the people they are interested in seeing again.

Designed by Rabbi Yaacov Deyo in 1998 as a way to help Jewish singles meet each other, speed dating is now a common practice enjoyed by people of different religions, ages, sexual orientations, etc.

The rules may vary by event, but the general idea is that men and women sign up for the event, held in a bar or a club, the men move down the line of women (or from table and table), and you have a limited amount of time (say 1, 3, or 5 minutes) to figure out if the person is worth getting to know better before time runs out and it's time to switch.

Most speed dating sessions today require pre-registration with a credit card.

Pre-registration is important because there needs to be an even number of males and females.

A few days after the speed dating event, participants are given the names and contact information of those that would like to see them again.

The invention of speed dating is credited to Rabbi Yaacov Deyo who tried the method on Jewish singles in his congregation to help them find potential marriage partners.
