Speed dating has become an option for Atlanta residents who want to maximize their chances at finding romance by meeting several potential dates in the same evening. Speed daters at events in Atlanta and other cities typically spend about 10 minutes getting to know each other, then move on to another speed dater. If you're interested in one of the people you meet, you tell the event organizers. If there is a mutual interest from the person you identify, the organizers provide contact information.
