Speed dating has become big business as the new alternative on the dating scene compared to meeting in bars, attending social events or using online dating services. In achieving its aim the results have been quite successful with reports that half of all participants come away with at least one promising match. Because of the limited time to interact, it is important that there should be a reasonable degree of compatibility between the couples for there to be any chance of a match. To determine their suitability beforehand, the participants are given a survey involving a number of questions and only those who are deemed to be even mildly compatible are arranged to meet in the same session. This research shows how binary logistic regression can be used to help any speed dating organisation determine whether a couple are compatible and even provide a probability that they will be a match.
