Are you single and looking to mingle?
Most people believe speed dating started in San Francisco in the 1960s. However, the first recorded usage of a speed dating concept was in England in 1926, where it was called “faint heart never won fair lady.” The idea was more popularized in Germany and Sweden during the 1930s, and even as late as 1963 there were only 3 reported cases of it happening in the United States. Nowadays there are about 30,000-speed dating events every year taking place all over the United States.
