Some companies have the length of time baked into their business name (such as Eight Minute Dates), whereas others use the number of people (such as 25 Dates).
As well, think about what message you want to present on a first date - with ten or more people.Several studies, including one called Mate Preferences in Action (Kurzban, 2005), have discovered that most people who attend speed dating events have decided whether or not they are interested in the person sitting across the table from them within of sitting down.So in reality it doesn't really matter what you talk about, because the non-verbal communication between two people is what matters.But if you want to up your chances of getting a date after the event, the same study showed that people who spoke about travel-related topics got more dates from speed dating events than the people who spoke about movies. Most speed dating companies will give you a sheet of paper with spaces for each person's first name and a tickbox next to it.After each individual speed date, write down the person's name who you just met.
