You've got to come with a barrage of them since you've got to know someone quick:
If they made a movie of your life who would play you?
If you were a garden implement which one would you be?
How long did your most recent relationship last?
Last one is easy.
About 3 minutes.
Since you're engaging in something called speed dating and you'll have 15 to 20 "dates" a night.
Rabbi Yaacov Deyo of Aish HaTorah in 1998 came up with the concept as a way to help Jewish singles meet and hopefully marry.
It worked so well, there are speed dating events everywhere.
Why waste time, reasoning goes, with people you're not compatible with, when you can meet a large number of new people you're not compatible with, grouped in compatible age ranges, rotated to meet each other over a series of short "dates," usually lasting from 3 to 8 minutes, depending on who's running the event.
But the odds are in your favor.
As long as you don't want the same actor to play your life story, you're bound to find some matches.
The whole process saves money and time.
If you meet your match, or matches, you take it from there and maybe increase your next dates to ten minutes.
Research seems to back up the idea.
A 2005 study at the University of Pennsylvania of multiple HurryDate speed dating events found that most people made their choices within the first three seconds of meeting.
Not sure what took them so long.
Oddly enough, issues such as religion, previous marriages, and smoking habits were found to play much less of a role than expected.
A 2006 study in Edinburgh, Scotland showed that 45 percent of the women participants in a speed-dating event and 22 percent of the men had come to a decision within the first 30 seconds.
A veritable eternity.
There's also no evidence that leads to a conclusion that a longer courtship leads to a longer marriage.
Based on my 30 seconds of research.
What do you think?
You should know by now.
