Usually advance registration is required for speed dating events.

It is unusual to see a speed dating event with an open age range, and most speed dating events will require an applicant to fall within the age range stated in order to attend.

However, some niche speed dating events throw age out the window to cater to specific groups, such as lesbians and gays, religious or racial affiliations, or those with similar hobbies.

Rabbi Yaacov Deyo of Aish Ha Torah is the first to be credited with the idea for speed dating, a concept he introduced to Jewish singles with the intent of meeting and eventually marrying.

Speed dating is a formalized matchmaking process of dating system whose purpose is to encourage people to meet a large number of new people.
