According to the New York Times, participants in speed dating experience an average of 2 in 10 or 3 in 10 matches.
Online dating participants, in contrast, only find a compatible match with 1 in 100 or fewer of the profiles they study.
Men and women are rotated to meet each other over a series of short "dates" usually lasting from three to eight minutes depending on the organization running the event.
At the end of each interval, the organizer rings a bell, clinks a glass, or blows a whistle to signal the participants to move on to the next date.
