Unlike normal first dates where you are stuck with one person right through the evening, speed dating is a dating system or match making process where people are allowed to meet a large number of people probably in a restaurant or public meeting place for a short duration of time.It is an organized matchmaking affair originally created by Rabbi Yaacov Deyo of the Aish HaTorah to help single Jews to meet and eventually find someone to marry. It was then adopted by popular culture and popularized by the media. Speed dating now is organized and held regularly everywhere around the world.
Taking from the idea of the Jewish people, Asian’s whose culture and religion dictates them to marry someone of the same culture or religion can make use of the Asian speed dating services offered by certain sites in order to meet their fellows near them. Living in societies composed of mixed races, religions and cultures, it’s hard for someone who is in the minority to meet someone they will like and their culture will allow. That is why arranged marriages are popular among these cultures.
Those of Hindu, Muslim, Chinese, and Korean descent are just a few Asians that adhere to their cultures and religion very much. They can avail of the Asian speed dating services offered by a number of websites. Or they could request a speed dating site to set up an Asian speed dating event in a place near them. Most sites feature Hindus to be the most willing to participate and hold a dating event. This is because among the cultures that allow arranged marriages, the Hindu is the most sociable people. For Muslim and Korean cultures, their women are more conservative and are not allowed much to mingle with the men.
An Asian speed dating event can be fun and themed to fit the culture of the Asians participating in it. The dating event will involve the same components as a normal speed date; the only difference is some, if not most, are looking to find a person they will marry. It’s serious business for most of these people.
The dating still adhere to the rules that speed dating is built upon. A speed date lasts 3 to 8 minutes, or as indicated by the organizers. After a signal is sounded, the men then rotate and move on to the next date. In a round robin sort of format, each man goes on a speed date with every woman in the event. After all men have dated all the women, they are allowed to mingle and have fun. This allows pairs who have hit it off in their speed date to resume their conversation and get to know more about each other. Also, for the men, it is their opportunity to pursue the woman that they came to like in the speed date.
Asian Speed dating can be advantageous for men who are inhibited or shy and have a fear of rejection, as is for a lot of men of Asian descent. This eliminates outright rejection and one can muster enough courage to converse with a member of the opposite sex. Since one has already talked to the girl in their initial speed date, one can just come up to that person and continue their conversation.
