The invention of speed dating is credited to Rabbi Yaacov Deyo who tried the method on Jewish singles in his congregation to help them find potential marriage partners.
Most speed dating sessions today require pre-registration with a credit card.
Pre-registration is important because there needs to be an even number of males and females.
Those five minutes are yours to talk about whatever you like.
