Fast Love: Speed Dating in Barcelona

Written by Paula

If you are familiar with American culture, odds are you have heard of something called “speed dating”, a matchmaking event where people have the opportunity to have several short dates in one session. In the end of each event, participants let the organizers know who are the people they would like to get to know better. If there is a match, the organizers give the participants the other person’s contact information.

Speed dating was created by Aish HaTorah’s Rabbi Yaacov Deyo, initially used as a form of helping Jewish singles to meet new people and get married. Today SpeedDating is a registered trademark of Aish HaTorah.

In the last few decades, this fun, dynamic way to meet a potential partner became so successful it started spreading all over the world.

Barcelona is one of the many cities that adopted this style of dating. So if you think it may a good fit for you, why not try one of the many speed dating services in town?

Singles Dating Barcelona

Singles Dating Barcelona organizes events where you can have between 12 and 20 dates, switching partners every 5 to 7 minutes. The company organizes various speed dating events, which usually gather people around the same age.

The events normally take place on Fridays at 20:30. Guys pay 25€, girls pay 15€. Drinks are included in the price.

Singles Dating Barcelona guarantees your satisfaction, which means that if you don’t feel a connection with anyone in your speed dating session, you are welcome to go to another session for free.
