We make every effort to make sure that the guest list combines a mix of JJunction members and non-members. When you arrive, you will be given a nametag and dating card.You will then have a few minutes to get a drink and settle in.
Men and women are rotated to meet each other over a series of short "dates" usually lasting from three to eight minutes depending on the organization running the event.At the end of each interval, the organizer rings a bell, clinks a glass, or blows a whistle to signal the participants to move on to the next date.The first speed-dating event took place at Peet’s Café in Beverly Hills in late 1998.Usually advance registration is required for speed dating events. Speed dating is a great way to meet up to 12 potential dates on the same night, in a fun, relaxed environment. At our speed dating we hand pick the guests for each event and this means 80% or more of our guests meet someone they want to see again. Will there be a large age difference between the participants?
We make sure that the age difference is appropriate and we can do this because our professional matchmakers put together the groups for each event and invite people we think will be a good mix. We encourage people who aren’t JJunction members to attend so that we get a good mix of members and non-members at each event.At the end of the event participants submit to the organizers a list of who they would like to provide their contact information to.If there is a match, contact information is forwarded to both parties.Speed dating is a formalized matchmaking process of dating system whose purpose is to encourage people to meet a large number of new people.Its origins are credited to Rabbi Yaacov Deyo of Aish Ha Torah, originally as a way to help Jewish singles meet and marry.Assume we can accommodate 20 pairs at a time, and that we’ll have 10 five-minute times slots.
