Speed Dating In Sheffield: What Is The History Of Speed Dating

Speed dating in Sheffield is a fairly new thing, but its history shows that the idea of speed dating has actually been around a lot longer. The reason that it is only now becoming more well known is that it is increasing hugely in popularity. And you could be a part of it.

Speed dating can be traced back to Los Angeles in California. It seems to have started in 1998 – almost 30 years ago. The idea behind the original concept of speed dating was to help young Jewish single people to find a date – and potentially a mate. Speed dating was the brainchild of Rabbi Yaacov Devo who believed that the people in his community needed a little help to meet the right people. He felt that a short conversation of around four minutes was the optimum time for people to discover enough about one another to know if they were compatible. The same basic principles are true in speed dating today. Speed dating in England started in London in around 2002, and has been growing in popularity ever since. Is it successful? Does it work? Think of it this way: how likely is it you will meet someone to ask out on a date in your normal day to day life? Your rate of success depends on how many people are at the same speed dating event as you. You can easily see the chances of getting a date are much higher than normal everyday life.
