Blind dating may be group or individual.
Group blind dating means mass dating parties organized by a third person. Many people think that such kind of dating will be widely used, especially in Europe where "American" bar dating is not so popular. A group blind dating party involves 10 to 20 men and the same number of women. Participants choose someone and just have a talk with each other for several minutes. At the end of the blind dating party participants tell their preferences to the arrangers and get contacts of the person they like, provided that there is mutual attraction. Then everyone is free to decide whether and in what form to arrange father dates.
Individual blind dating is when you yourself arrange a real-life date with a person that you have never seen before and whom you try to recognize using a photo (sometimes this photo is of poor quality or not up to date at all) or even using this person’s verbal description. Please, note that you should not have any great expectations or hope to find love or a life partner through blind dating. Treat blind dating as an opportunity to meet new people and have a nice evening.
Speed dating is very popular in Europe, the United States, Australia and Russia.
Speed dating party is a convenient format to meet men and talk to each other for people with a heavy workload and a limited amount of spare time. Such parties are usually organized for people with a certain status or common interests. Speed dating parties are organized as follows.
To join a speed dating party, you have to register, since there should be equal number of single men and women. In one evening you will have about 20 dates of 3 to 5 minutes each. Each woman will be given a separate table at her disposal, and men will change one table after another. Following every mini date, guests will note down their impressions about their date in their feedback sheets ("+" or "-"). Even if you have not managed to recognize the man of your dreams in your speed dating partner, you will always have an opportunity to meet those speed dating participants you like and discuss something you’re interested in.
For 2 days after a speed dating party its organizers compare feedback sheets and if they find that two participants likes each other, the organizers will send them each other’s contacts. Then each of them will decide with whom to date.
