This period of courtship is sometimes seen as a precursor to engagement or marriage.
Dating as an institution is a relatively recent phenomenon which has mainly emerged in the last few centuries.

Usually advance registration is required for speed dating events.
I wrote about Select Sitters, a local babysitting service, hosting a babysitter "speed dating" event back in March.
