    When Max went to the Speed Dating and Matchmaking Centre Office, he thought they could help. After completing a survey form about I age, education, religion, likes and dislikes, he was invited to a get-together with other nine men and ten women. There, he spent about six minutes with each woman, talking about things like jobs, hobbies, families and children. At the end of the evening, he made a report stating which women he wished to see again. Luckily, Lucy, the woman that he chose was also interested in him. They had a meeting the following week. Max and Lucy had many things in common, but he did not really feel attracted to her. Lucy felt the same, and they agreed to remain friends. A month later, Lucy invited Max to her birthday party and introduced her to her friends. Fate was kind to Max this time as he met Carol there, and they fell in love with each other at first sight.
