Friend Speed Dating is a low-key social event designed to help new adults make new friends. Every attendee spends two minutes talking with each of the other attendees; the “matching” period is followed by time for coffee and a casual activity, like card-making. This event was part of our ongoing program series aimed towards the 20s and 30s crowd. I decided to run this program as part of our It’s On series for new adults because I regularly hear from and somethings in the area that they have trouble meeting new friends after they leave university.
The goal was to provide a low-stress, fun environment for them to meet new friends, and to draw new patrons in their 20s and 30s to the library. In heterosexual romantic speed dating, the men sit on one side of the table and never move, while the women shift over one seat each time or vice versa. But in that scenario, each person only matches with half of the attendees. I needed everyone to match with each other, regardless of gender! I solved this problem by having one person sit in the same seat for the entire process, while everyone else shifted one seat over.
Place a gold star marker at one seat and arrows in front of every other seat to show participants where to move. I prepared for an odd number of attendees by creating one trio match station.

How to Host a Friend Speed Dating Event
Speed dating is a formalized matchmaking process which has the purpose of encouraging eligible singles to meet large numbers of new potential partners in a very short period of time. SpeedDating , as a single word, is a registered trademark of Aish HaTorah. Speed dating , as two separate words, is often used as a generic term for similar events. The earliest documented example of speed dating was by Aryeh Alan and Rena Hirsch of Los Angeles in early who developed speed dating as a solution to the problem of typical single events where “only attractive women and outgoing men have success at the end of the evening”.
Usually advance registration is required for speed dating events.
I hear from 20/30s all the time that they struggle to find new friends in the area. It’s hard to leave university behind â€“ where there are countless.
It certainly looks like speed dating. Young men and women wearing name tags chat with one another for five-minute periods before the host blows a whistle, they scribble onto index cards their rating of the compatibility they felt with the person they’ve just met, then they move on to the next guy or girl with warm smiles, handshakes and introductions. But wait a minute! Men are chatting with men, then moving on to women, then back to men. And the ladies are equally open in their gender selection.
A sign of the times? Sort of, since the two dozen participants in the upstairs bar at The Spot, N. Broadway, are speed-meeting one another. But none is looking for love or lust.
