University speed dating
Some speed daters report the scene is fraught with sleazy and insincere individuals. "I've never seen so much desperation in one area," reported one college student who tried speed dating at an event at the University of Buffalo [source: Generation].
There will be a break in the middle to refresh drinks and chat further, overall the whole event will last around hours.
Another study conducted by Stanford Business, Harvard and Columbia University researchers also found that women in the speed date setting throw out traditional requisites for a mate, like intelligence and sincerity, and go instead for physical attractiveness.
So, too, do men, but this represents no change, as men traditionally report physical attractiveness at the top of their list of desirable qualities in a mate.
