They set up a speed-dating event and invited a total of 382 people (190 men and 192 women) who were aged 18-54 to participate.

All of their participants were real singles whose sole motivation for participation in the study was to find a real-life romantic or sexual mate.

Men and women are rotated to meet each other over a series of short "dates" usually lasting from three to eight minutes depending on the organization running the event.

At the end of each interval, the organizer rings a bell, clinks a glass, or blows a whistle to signal the participants to move on to the next date.

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

Its origins are credited to Rabbi Yaacov Deyo of Aish Ha Torah, originally as a way to help Jewish singles meet and marry.

Speed Dating, as a single word, is a registered trademark of Aish Ha Torah.

No one felt the need for a marriage license to have sex and the pick-up scene at bars stayed in full swing throughout the next decade.

And long before the days of shows like "The Bachelor," 1965 brought us "The Dating Game," the forerunner in TV dating shows for singles.

“It was a magic formula because, here you have a woman picking from three guys, so at home everybody's saying, “Oh, she's gotta take that number two, he's so handsome." The fact that women were making choices was a total different thing for dating,” said Jim Lange, host of the show until it went off the air in 1980.

The 1960s brought feminist freedom and the birth control pill. In that same era, dating services found their way on to the scene.

Back then, big computers helped people find a mate.
