But while some details may change from service to service, the general rules concerning speed dating remain the same.

Participants are asked to register ahead of time to ensure an even ratio between men and women , although some services now offer registration at the door.
Most of us are busy people. Work, social gatherings and other responsibilities keep us busy so it's easy to neglect your love life when your mind is focused on other things. So, what do you do when you want to meet new people but you can't find the time to fit in your schedule? Try speed dating!
