What is Speed Dating?
Speed dating is an organized and efficient way for singles to meet many potential dating partners in a short amount of time. At a Figs & Dates speed dating event you get to experience up to 16 five minute “mini-dates” in one evening.
Speed dating’s roots are believed to trace back to the 1970’s in London. These events have been held throughout most of the US in the early 2000’s.
In the past decade online dating sites and mobile dating apps have expanded in popularity, which has been why there has been a significant reduction in the amount of speed dating events held now. But as people are wanting more face-to-face interactions, speed dating is trending back to one of the more popular ways to date!
