What's this? Yes. Thats why speed dating is a welcome respite, and a natural fit for dating services. They allow people to quickly meet other singles. But events are high touch, and high maintenance which is the reason they've not been adopted on the whole.

Cupid runs Predating events. Spark Networks recently bought Hurrydate. is still available for acquisition. runs high end events around the world.

I think sites that offer a combination of speed dating and online dating works well for singles. They can very effectively search online for compatible people and then see if they have chemistry. Speed dating is the reverse model. Singles can go and see if they have chemistry, and then search through the persons profile after the event. They can see if the person wants kids, smokes, etc. So the two, speed-dating and online dating, work well hand in hand.


All these speed dating companies have really helped a lot of people meet face to face. It's no wonder why more and more people are looking for singles events rather than meet online.
