There used to be a real sense of pride that someone was able to marry there high school or college sweetheart, but those days have given way to a change in culture where people by and large tend to graduate school and focus on career and independence and have fun and date throughout their 20s or 30s or even beyond before settling down. Perhaps this is a result of drastically higher percentage of children in younger generations witnessing divorce. Perhaps it is a change in health with longer life expectancies and the ability and desire for people to explore themselves and experience life in general. It may also have to do with the economy and the need to focus on career and also the smallest gap ever in gender equality that has women enjoying independence and seeking to live their lives on their terms knowing that children can always come later. Likely it is a combination of all these things.
Whatever the case, meeting people, growing up, in school, or through friends is still one of the most popular ways people connect. And these days, that might mean simply connected now and then partnering up far down the road, in their 30s or 40s thanks to Facebook and other social media that helps keep us all in touch.

Bars, Clubs and Parties
This is the most popular way to meet people among the college-age crowd, although many college students who connect with someone in these places often already had the icebreaker of sharing a class or other similar pursuit. Still, strangers meet and even marry everyday through connections first struck at public venues. While many people are quick to point out potential inadequecies of partners met at bars, we all know that most all of us were likely to be found in them at one point or another (and often very frequently), and how bad are we? But what gets overlooked is the idea that people tend to gravitate towards the bars and clubs that suit their tastes, and therefore, there is a bit of screening that does take place and at least some similar interests you might have in common with most people in your chosen hangout. People who go to clubs love to dance, people who go to large (and sometimes divvy) bars often love music. Sports bars and comedy clubs also point to obvious interest.

There an old expression that you shouldn’t #($* where you eat, but there is a lot to be said for workplace romances, a great many of which lead to serious relationships. And why not? Careers are one of the highest levels of commonality two people can share, and when you drill that down further to working at the same company there is so much more to talk about together. Naturally there is heavy risk involved, such falling for someone or simply being mistreated by someone while dating and having to see that person on a daily basis, and potentially interfering with your own career. To this point, if you do strike up an office romance, it’s always best when the company is large so that you are different floors or even in different buildings or towns, but it can still work even if you find yourselves in the same meeting rooms daily. Afterall, one of you is bound to jump to another company sooner or later in this day and age.

After each date, everyone moves on to the next date. At the end of each interval, the organizer rings a bell or clinks a glass to signal the participants to move on to the next date. When the event concludes, participants can inform the event organizers who they wish to make their contact information known to, after which a traditional first date might ensue.
Speed dating events require advanced registration and has an even amount of men and women attend, except for the party style speed dating events, which are less formal in structure and shoot for just an approximate gender balance. A great many of niche speed dating events are held throughout the world as well, such as nights for gays and lesbians, older men and younger women, ethnic events and so forth.
