Blind guy dating wikipedia
The advantage of online speed dating is that users can go on dates from home as it can be done from any internet enabled computer.
The disadvantage is people do not actually meet one another.

The time limit ensures that a participant will not be stuck with a boorish match for very long, and prevents participants from monopolizing one another's time.

Furthermore, 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% of the women participants in a speed-dating event and 22% of the men had come to a decision within the first 30 seconds.
