This scenario of falling in love in four minutes seems rather impossible although it has been known for couples to immediately connect with each other and forming a relationship. At a speed dating event you usually have about four minutes to chat to and make your mind up whether the person in front of you would make a good date. You can learn a lot about someone in a short space of time, although body language also counts. If your speed dating partner is tactile and likes to keep touching your arm for instance, it could count as being very interested. Some people prefer to keep at arm’s length so if you’re a “touchy, feely” person, take into account the expression the person opposite you has on his or her face.
If your heart sinks and you have a warm feeling inside when meeting someone at a speed dating event, you’ll soon see if they feel the same way about you. Eye contact is very important, if your eyes meet and stars appear, this is the person for you. Those who avoid eye contact are either nervous or just aren’t interested, so make mental notes regarding this important factor. Falling in love is a natural process and some people do experience this wonderful phenomena at speed dating events or when meeting someone for the first time. If you’re lucky enough to be in this category go for it, even better if your speed dating partner has fallen for you in a big way.
Research has shown that people meeting for the first time can fall in love after a short period of time. Although they are not quite at the “I love you” stage” but rather at the “I really like you” stage, the chemistry between two people can explode even after four minutes. You’ll know when you are out on a date with the right person as your heart will tell you so.
