Speed dating is meant to 'speed up' the process of meeting new people; it's not meant to replace the entire dating cycle. Think of your initial speed date as an icebreaker and first meeting. You now know a little bit about the person and have a basic idea of whether or not you'd like to see him or her again. If you are serious about continuing to date someone that you have met through speed dating, contact them promptly after your information has been exchanged and set up a second date. Try to make the date low impact -- something light and fun where you can talk to the person and get to know them.
