D’après le format originel, les entretiens durent précisément 7 minutes, et sont strictement séquencés en 3 phases : présentation par le cadre de son parcours et de son projet (3’), échanges (3’), et conclusion (1’).
Cette rigueur dans le déroulement invite les participants à une préparation minutieuse.
Jonathan: This is a kind of thing that started up in the last number of years, and what happens is it there's an organizer and you go to some dates in a two hour period. I'm sure they'll have questions for you, as well, and if for example out of those twenty dates, there are four or five that you would be interested in seeing again, you put a little check next to their name on your check list.
Perhaps you're interested finding out what the girls enjoy doing in their free time, their hobbies, what their background is.
If any of those same ladies put a check next to your name, then you have a match, and you're able to contact those ladies.
