If two participants have written down each other’s names, the event organizer will forward the contact information to both parties.
(The idea is that the participants will not feel pressure to accept or request contact information face to face.) The first organized speed-dating event took place in 1998 in Beverly Hills, California.
Broader conceptions reach north into Alaska and Yukon, south into northern California and east to the Continental Divide, thus including Idaho, Western Montana, and western Wyoming.
Narrower conceptions may be limited to the northwestern US or to the coastal areas west of the Cascade and Coast mountains.
The border — in two sections, along the 49th parallel south of British Columbia and the Alaska Panhandle west of northern British Columbia — has had a powerful effect on the region.
According to Canadian historian Ken Coates, the border has not merely influenced the Pacific Northwest—rather, "the region's history and character have been determined by the boundary." None of the multiple possible definitions of the Pacific Northwest is universally accepted.
Speed dating first evolved over a decade ago, but it has become much more popular in recent years, especially among baby boomers and seniors.
Perhaps the increasing need for companionship is to blame, or maybe the adrenalin-pumping nature of the event makes it so attractive.
