If you’re familiar with American culture, you’ve surely heard of “speed dating“, a matchmaking event, invented in the United States, where people have the opportunity to have several, short dates over the course of the evening. At the end of each event, the participants let the organizers know who the people would like to know better and therefore would like to have a real date. If there is mutual interest, the organizers give the participants the contact information of the other person.
The first “official” speed date meeting took place at Pete’s Cafè in Beverly Hills at the turn of 1998 and shortly thereafter a series of agencies began organizing meetings throughout the United States of America. Already in 2000 the initiative could be said to be crowned with success: the speed date was already known in all the States where it was considered the new glamor fashion of the moment. Being represented in some movies and hit shows like Love is eternal while it lasts and Sex and the City helped to increase its popularity considerably.
Barcelona is one of the cities that has most adopted speed dating. So, if you think it may be a good idea for you, why not try one of the many speed dating services in the city? Let’s find out the best Speed Dating sites in Barcelona!
BeDazzling is very famous in Barcelona for the wide variety of Speed Dating events organized throughout the city.

During these events it will be possible to know approximately 10-18 people, 1 person every 5 and 8 minutes, depending on the number of participants.
When you arrive at our Speed dating event you will be provided with an identification document and a file so that you can write all the information you deem important of the people you will meet. Specifically, the girls sit at different tables, the boys sit down later, and each couple has a few minutes to introduce themselves, talk and start getting to know each other. When the organizers give a precise signal, the boys have to change the tables and sit down with the next girl. Finally, you will have to select directly on the website the people you want to know better. If the interest is mutual, the system will provide mutual data to both.
With The Dating Night you can make friends or find your soul mate.

The total time of the event is about 2 hours. Between a date and another, you will have a couple of minutes to make the evaluation of the appointment just had.
