I have four times now witnessed hundreds of people go on hundreds of dates in only a few hours.I've then analyzed their post-date opinions about each other, and paired them off. I organized literary speed-dating events at the bookstore where I work.

It was sort of great, and I think part of the decision to "put yourself out there" in a bar on a Friday night or while speed-dating in a bookstore is somehow pheromone-ally discernible or something, even in a platonic way.

A couple of participants noted that they met people they liked whom they know they never would have met outside of the "controlled" dating environment. Almost all—I haven't actually done the math, but I would venture around 95 percent—participants had multiple people interested in them but whom they hadn't indicated interest in.

Sometimes, sure, it's simply a missed connection, but I think it goes back to being more open in general.

I personally think a "type" is bullshit, though I understand that it might be hard to get past certain ingrained expectations. More people are into you than you even realize*Most people at our speed-dating get one to three matches.

One of the reasons everyone signs up for "organized dating" is to meet new people. One woman I followed up with noted "I was less picky than I usually am when I chose who I'd like to see again," and was pleased to get matches as a result. However, for example, one woman who matched with two people had nine men who had indicated interest in her, out of 11 dates.

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.
