Dating Blitz is a modern format for speed dating dating evenings. The organizers invite 12 girls and 12 men to the cafe, and sit them in pairs. Each couple communicates for 5-7 minutes, and after this time, the men will transfer to the next girl at the signal of the presenter. Five minutes later - again a transplant, and a new date. Thus, each participant is introduced to each participant. The next day they will receive the evening’s results: contacts of those with whom their sympathies are mutual (they note their sympathies in special questionnaires during the event).
Now the most important thing begins: the participants received each other's phones and can communicate in free form, without intermediaries. The organizers recommend going on a date with a few pretty candidates in order to choose "the very one" from them. Of course, mini-dating is not enough to see if a couple can build a relationship. But the goal of the blitz party is not this, but to select potential candidates. After the event, couples will have as much time as possible to look at each other! According to the organizers, the big plus is that the participants do not go on blind dates, as with an online acquaintance.
Date blitz in Moscow is collected by about 600 participants weekly. The contingent of such events is people with higher education who work in the intellectual fields. For example, businessmen, doctors, managers, IT specialists, students.
Why do people prefer to get to know this way?
Here is the event participant’s feedback:
“I come on dates for the second time, every time I get a lot of positive emotions. All people are different, with some I would never have met in real life. I am interested in knowing people what they live for, finding common ground with them. Am I looking for my soulmate here? Maybe. But not only. I like to chat live, I don’t understand those who prefer virtual reality. ”Elena, 23, student of the Faculty of Philology.
As the participants in quick dates themselves say, dating at such evenings is more interesting and brighter than online dating.
First of all, it’s immediately clear what kind of person is sitting opposite. Is it worth it to go on a date with him, or is it better to never meet? Agree, from the photo it is not always possible to understand. As a result, after online correspondence, people go on a date with a "pig in a poke." Therefore, often online dating ends in disappointment.
Secondly, the dating process itself is filled with emotions. So many new people, stories in one evening! Correspondence in online applications is sometimes delayed, and sometimes even remains a virtual history. According to statistics, no more than 30% of virtual dating ends in a real meeting.
Here's what men say about speed dating:
“At the moment, I’m only dating blitz dates. There are friends, but work takes too much time: you have to work even on weekends. With such a schedule, finding time for a hobby or partying is simply physically impossible. I come for the fourth time, and I hope that this time I will be lucky. The first times were quite successful, there were pretty girls, but it did not work out. So I’ll try! ”Andrey, 35, financial broker
Here is a tip from a girl who met her fiancé on a date blitz in Moscow:
“I went to an event for a company with a girlfriend. I did not believe in online dating, nor in such parties. She thought that my fate would find me herself. But in the end I met Lesha, my fiance. On the other hand, it happened - I met fate where I did not expect it. ”Olesya, 29, event manager.

With all the simplicity of express dates, someone has to take care of organizing them, so why not do this noble thing - connecting single hearts? You provide people with the opportunity to meet at a cafe table and chat, and they, in gratitude for this, pay you a small amount.

Groups should be made up of people of about the same age, interests and social status.

To organize this business, access to the Internet is vital: you need your own website on which participants can register, there will also be information about the place and time of the meetings.

To attract participants, advertising in the local press, on the streets, in the cafe where the event is supposed to be useful. On average, advertising costs amount to 10,000-30,000 rubles per month.
How to hold meetings?
At the appointed time, participants gather in a cafe. The group should have the same number of women and men. Women occupy tables, and men sit down to them. Communication lasts seven minutes. At the signal, the men get up and change seats at the next table. So, moving from table to table, all men will communicate with all women. Participants put notes in the questionnaire, marking their interlocutors. In the matched pair, the participants exchange phone numbers.
If you invite 30 people to parties, selling them tickets at 500 rubles, then each event will bring about 5,000 rubles of net income. This is not bad considering the simplicity of the organization and the positive emotions of communication..
