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.Unlike many bars, a speed dating event will, by necessity, be quiet enough for people to talk comfortably.Participants can come alone without feeling out of place; alternatively it is something that women who like to go out in groups can do together.Contact information cannot be traded during the initial meeting, in order to reduce pressure to accept or reject a suitor to his or her face.There are many speed dating events now in the United Kingdom, Canada, and the United States.Speed Dating, as a single word, is a registered trademark of Aish Ha Torah.Speed dating, as two separate words, is often used as a generic term for similar events.
