They would like to find a person with deep moral principles but this does not prevent them to be interested very much in the profession of the future choice – 85%.

What is speed dating in NYC
So, the quantity of speed dating in NYC reaches nearly 100 monthly. For those who have heard about such a method of dating but still have not taken part in it, we inform that it is a party with an equal number of men and women, with a certain age group of guests.
Men and women sit at table either two together or four depending on the format of speed dating. The pairs change every 5-7 minutes. With the aim to simplify the process of acquaintance, the tables are numbered, and all participants are given badges that show their names or pseudonyms at the entrance. Nobody checks passports of the participants of speed dating. It is forbidden to come drunk and smoking is also prohibited. The main rule of the speed dating is that one can only enter a dating party by ticket and outside visitors are not allowed here.
The topics of dialogues are dictated by the presenters. Interlocutors should change clearly in time. It leads to that at the end of the evening everyone would be familiar with each other. During conversations, calm and romantic music sounds quiet, which should not interfere with the comfort of the environment. The dynamic and loud music starts for 1-2 minutes when the time comes for the transition to a new interlocutor. Most often, men move clockwise from one lady to another.
The holdup of the changing of interlocutors is unacceptable absolutely because it will break the order of the event. From 10 to 40 blitz-acquaintances take place during the speed dating. That is why it’s very important that all men and women have badges. It helps not to lose the man or woman you like.
The results of speed dating
In the USA the organizers give out contacts (telephones and e-mails) at the end of the evening (or the next day), and in some countries it is permitted to exchange contacts right in the evening.
If you are in doubt whether to choose only one person from all the participants in the evening, organizers advise to select all persons that you liked because no one knows whether that single interlocutor or interlocutor will reciprocate.
There is no specific type of people who attend speed dates. Here you can meet representatives of various professions, people with different characters, social statuses, interests and life principles.

And only 7% of men pay attention to the meaning of lady’s words.
