    To watch the first video,the plugings can’t be installed in my laptop. At least, I’ve watched the second one.
    I imagine what speed dating is,and I don’t think this works in Spain. In fact, I think Spanish people are so sociable and they prefer to meet people in places where common activities could be held, such as: cinemas, pubs, clubs of sports, travelling, etc…

    Speed dating seems to be popular with professionals who want everything NOW! Why would I want to spend my free time with a guy who wants to cut corners all the time – he will just end up cutting ME out of the equation when someone better comes along- no thanks

    I think it’s imposible to meet a person in 3 minutes! And what about the place?! you can’t hear anything because of the noise and the music…

    I agree whith some of you. I think that it is not very common for spanish people to meet new friends in Speed Dating, however I believe if you go to the meeting whith some friends it could be a very amusing evening never so serious !!

    1- Speed dating is a way to meet new people and get fast contacts. You can take your first opinion about these people, and that can be the beginning.
    2- I mean its a way to meet new people but not a good one, in my opinion. We are trying whith human feelings and it’s better take care with it.
    3- There are classic ways to meeting friends like school, university, parties organized by common friends, ecc.
    4- Perhaps in the immediate future. Nowadays there are already quite popular Internet contacts so, why not speed dating?
    5- Relationship between two persons must be always carried on under certain degree of prudence, modesty and propriety.

    Star Trek or Star Wars? jajajaja… This question is definitely appropiate.
    In my opinion speed dating is a funny way to meet people, but I think there are more suitable ways to make it. For instance, enroll in different activities like learning languages or dancing classes.
    Spanish people tend to be outgoing and enjoy being with other people. I think speed dating won’t become popular in Spain.

    Hi. I absolutely agree with Lorena. The way we are is what make us popular for foreing. We like staying outside chatting, interacting, making good contacts and Speed Dating is just the opposite. So I don´t think It´ll succeed in Spain. Bye

    In my opinion speed dating is a good way to meet people when you are very shy because you have the opportunity to talk to someone. Besides when someone is alone, for differents reasons like get divorced, is widowed or has wroken with his partner, is a quick way to meet new people.Normaly most of their friens are couples and they need to meet new people in similar situation.

    Personally I think speed dating is a good way of meeting people specially nowadays as men and womwn are too busy that we don´t have the time for a slow courtship so we need a quicker way to find a partner.
    So in my opinion speed dating will be more and more popular in spain even though we are more traditional than in others european countries.
    A good example of that we are becoming more open minded are the tapper sex parties wich are increasing their popularity in our country and not only among young people.
    In speed dating meetins you have just three minutes to get an idea of what a person is like and you can eliminate them if they are not your type.
    So making the appropriate questions to the candidates is very important in order to find out if he/she is your type and if you could get on together. But in the end the real acid test will be a real date, like in the old style, it would confirm if your first impression was right or wrong.

    I really believe that speed dating is a good and interesting way of meeting people for those kind of people who doesn’t have time to go out to find the perfect one. I personally think that in just 3 minutes you can guess if the person you have in front of you is a good candidate for you or not. I mean that if you don’t share any ideas or ways of seeing life you can stop talking to him/her and that is perfect! 🙂 Life is too short to spend with someone that you don’t like! So, for me 3 minutes is enough!
