Dating is all about putting yourself out there and maximizing your chances of meeting that special someone. Many people find there are less and less opportunities to date and meet new people because they’re so busy with their work schedules or their single friend pool is declining.

Speed dating is a great alternative for those that have a limited amount of time to date, are fed up with their current dating situation or are just looking for a great night out to meet local singles. Bringing quality, professional singles together, Speed dating events provide the perfect platform to find love, in a fast and effective way. Speed dating questions really help you get to know someone in a quick period of time.

What makes a Speed dating event different than a regular date?
Unlike a regular date, you typically have 5 minutes, plus break time to learn about your date. You will be rotating, meeting upwards of 10-15 dates in one night, therefore it is important for you to maximize your time with each date and learn as much as possible about them by asking speed dating questions.

How do you know what speed dating questions to ask if you only have 5 minutes per date?
In order to combat nerves and being tongue tied on your speed date, we have created some fun and easy speed dating questions to ensure you learn as much as possible about your date when you’re pressed for time.

If you need to prepare, think of 5 great things that you can talk about so that you won’t feel under pressure or be tongue tied.  Choose speed dating questions that suit the mood of the conversation and that reflect your needs and personality. We also encourage you to stay away from extremely serious questions that require more than a 5-minute introductory conversation. Out of fairness to your date, reserve questions that require more detailed answers, for the second or third date. Ultimately, you want to go with the flow of the conversation, once you have that flow, questions come natural to you.

Speed dating questions are designed to help support you to determine chemistry first and foremost. The questions should also be tailored to seek out similar interests so that you have enough information to decide if you want to go out with them again.
