When they started, speed dating wasn’t well known in Croatia in general but by time they are getting more requests and now the event is held two or three times per month.It is still not very much accepted by the majority of the people as they consider it an unusual way to get to know new people or to find the right one.
At the end of the date, couples are asked if they want to see each other again — this time, in the real world.John, gazing at his VR self in a VR mirror, decides that he looks like a “creepy doll.” But at least some of his assets look good: “Look at my booty in this thing!

Usually the woman sits to a table with an empty chair waiting for a man to join in.
But that’s just one of the new frontiers of awkwardness that singletons face in “Virtually Dating,” a new show by Condé Nast Entertainment.
The series, which launched Wednesday on Facebook Watch, sets people up on blind dates that take place in virtual reality worlds.
Each participant has a number, if you are interested in any of the people you met on the speed date you go home and put their number on the website, if they are also interested and entered your number as well, only then you receive their contact information and you can begin from there.
Organizing such an event has its challenges such as people who book and not show up or when the number of men is more than the number of women, while in perfect situations it should be equal.
When the first man arrives they have a quick conversation for not more than 5 minutes.
