They say it takes only three minutes to decide whether we will
fall in love, remain friends or never speak again. Researchers
at Ohio University studied 170 new undergraduates arriving. They
found that after three minutes of conversation they were able
to predict how well they would get on with fellow students.
Professor Artemio Ramirez was shocked by the results. "Earlier
research assumed there was a cumulative effect that happens in
the first few days. But we're finding it all happens in minutes." Students
were given either three, six or 10 minutes to talk to each other
before making a prediction as to how they thought the relationship
would develop. Researchers found those who chatted for three
minutes were as successful at predicting the outcome as those
who spent longer together.

Can I go to more than one event?
There is no limit
on how many events you go to. Most 3min-daters are new to speed
dating so if you don’t meet that perfect person first time
round, then it makes sense to try again. You'll meet another
large group of new potential partners and this time you’ll
be even more relaxed.
People say that finding that special person was not easy until
they came to a 3min-dating event. 3 minute dating is here to
change that by loading the odds in your favour.

Speed dating is a new concept in the UK and as such, 3 minute
dating feel that it is important that people have the chance
to book by phone
if they want to. Three minute dating are happy to spend time
with you answering any questions that you may have on speed dating.
do I need to book in advance?
3 minute dating need to ensure that
there are the same numbers of men and women so tickets must be
bought in advance rather than on the door. Many of the events
are also now beginning to sell out a couple of weeks in advance
which is another reason to book early.
Why do you need my email
and phone details?
3 minute dating ask for a telephone
number so that they can contact you in the very unlikely event

email address is needed to inform you of a match. In this case,
names and email addresses are exchanged.
What happens when I arrive?
You will be greeted by one of the 3 minute dating friendly hosts
and handed a unique number and a score-card. You can then relax
and have a drink while the last people are being checked in.
The host then goes through the way the evening will be run and
answers any last minute questions
Everyone is paired off and you then have 3 minutes to chat with
your first date. A bell signals when it's time to change. If
you like the person you have just met, and want to see them again,
you tick their number on your card. A 'match' happens when they
also tick your number on theirs.
The next date sees the women remain seated while men move on
to the next person. This continues until everyone has met each
other. There is a break in the middle to give you a chance to
catch your breath and perhaps a quick drink from the bar. At
the end of the evening the host collects your card. Most daters
linger for a while to chat with friends; both old

an event last?

hours. You'll be surprised how quickly it goes!

to tire towards the end of the evening.
Is three minutes long

like enough time but you'll quickly realise how easy it is to
see if there's a spark there and if this is someone you'd like
to meet again. If there isn't, then no-one looses and it's on

use a very upmarket bar as this is the sort of place that 3min-daters
feel comfortable in while providing the right atmosphere for
speed dating. The event is held in a smart function room or a
sectioned off area.

attire is always a safe bet. Dress as you would do on a first
date remembering that first impressions do count.

What is a match?
3min speed-dating is fun and
exciting but the real object of the exercise is to find someone
new who you like and who likes
you. When you meet someone you want to meet again, you tick the
number of your date hoping they do the same to you. If they do
then it becomes a 'match'.
Can I get the details of someone who didn't tick me?
The concept of speed-dating is to let people meet
and, if they like each other, they will be able to meet again
by becoming a match. If there isn’t a match then that suggests
one side doesn't want to take it any further. Three minute dating
respect such wishes and will only therefore exchange details
