Speed dating is a formalized matchmaking process of dating system whose purpose is to encourage people to meet a large number of new people.

Speed dating, as two separate words, is often used as a generic term for similar events.

If there is a match, contact information is forwarded to both parties.Contact information cannot be traded during the initial meeting, in order to reduce pressure to accept or reject a suitor to his or her face.At the end of each interval, the organizer rings a bell, clinks a glass, or blows a whistle to signal the participants to move on to the next date.At the end of the event participants submit to the organizers a list of who they would like to provide their contact information to.Usually advance registration is required for speed dating events.Men and women are rotated to meet each other over a series of short "dates" usually lasting from three to eight minutes depending on the organization running the event.
