7 minutes in Heaven: Black Speed Dating
During the month of February, love is in the air like never before. Speed dating is an insanely popular form of matchmaking that was started in the late 90s by a rabbi named Yaacov Deyo. He and a group of friends strived to think of an innovative way to bring Jewish singles together to meet, and eventually marry. They designed a system where singles would be able to work through twelve dates in one night. Therefore, Beilinsohn came up with the concept of speed dating.

How Speed Dating Works
The actual schedule of these and other themed speed dating events varies as well and is determined by market demand and our ability to ensure a relatively close gender balance. Some cities schedule more themed events than others. Regardless of an event’s theme or lack thereof as most of our events are unthemed speed dating events , Pre-Dating does not exclude people interested in attending a particular event who do not fit into the event theme, although it does reserve the right to limit attendance in order to ensure a quality experience for others attending an event especially those that may have a particular expectation of who will be attending.

I Did a Virtual Dating Event While Quarantining. This Is What It Was Like.
As the coronavirus pandemic sends the country into lockdown, virtual speed dating may be the new norm. If you’d told me just a week ago that I would be telling my yoga instructor, via Zoom, that I had to “run off” from our online class because I was late to a virtual dating event , I would have said you’d seen too many dystopian movies. But that’s where we are. New York City—where I live—isn’t sheltering in place just yet, but large gatherings have been canceled, shops and restaurants have shuttered, and we’ve all been urged to maintain social distance and stay home for the foreseeable future.
When you can’t leave your house, that puts a serious damper on your ability to socialize and with it, your dating life. Of course, that’s not the biggest concern during a global pandemic.
There are many companies that offer speed-dating services and just about as many different techniques. But while some details may change from service to service, the general rules concerning speed dating remain the same. Speed-dating events are most often held in restaurants and bars, although events are cropping up in other places, like student unions on college campuses. 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.
Inside the venue, speed daters will find that tables are arranged to accommodate two participants at a time. One set of the speed daters, usually women, stay seated at the same table, and the opposite group moves from table to table. This table-hopping method has been compared to musical chairs. The difference is, when the bell rings or buzzer sounds, the next seat the dater takes is predetermined. The speed dater progresses from table to table until each participant has had a chance to meet the other.
Depending on the company, a speed date may last from three to eight minutes, although some go as long as 10 minutes.
