Speed dating popularity on the rise

(NBC) - Speed dating may be the answer to all those suffering from Valentine's Day blues. Its popularity is on the rise among single professionals.

All matching takes place after the event is over, which saves the individual from embarrassment and rejection.

The game is simple: Singles have a few minutes to meet each other. After each rotation, they circle "let's meet" or "no thanks" on their card.

Everyone involved is referred to on a first-name basis.

If there is a connection, e-mails are sent after the even, and real dates can be set up.
