What is Speed Dating?
Speed Dating is an exciting, quick and non-pressured way to meet singles. In one evening, you'll meet a variety of people, in brief, individual one-on-one conversations and have the best time of your life.
The system guarantees you have mini dates -- without the need for uncomfortable ice-breaking. You avoid nightmare 2-3-hour blind dates, expensive dinners and lunches with people where there is no chemistry and best of all every person there is serious about dating.
How does Speed Dating work?
A group of singles - an equal number of men and women -- gather together. The venue is filled with "tables for two," and each table is numbered. You will have a set amount of time of 5 minutes per date.
The MC will announce the end of each date session and participants are asked to write on a form if they would be interested in seeing this person again. This entails simply checking a 'yes' or 'no' box. The men then get up from their seats and move to the next table, where another woman is waiting to meet them. If both sides checked off the 'yes' box, organizers let participants know within 48 hours which matches have been made, and give each side the other's email address.
5 minutes doesn't seem like a lot of time, is it enough?
Remember, you're not on a date, you're on a mini-date! This is a great way to
see if you'd be interested in a full date or just more conversation later. Sometimes
5 minutes is way too long if you know what we mean. But in 5 minutes most people
can tell if there's physical chemistry, if they like the way someone speaks,
if the person is mature and intelligent, and if they want to know more. At which
point they'd select YES on the score card and hopefully the other person would
do the same!
What should you wear?
Dress to impress. Don't wear jeans, shorts, flip flops or sneakers, no matter
how casual the facilitator says to dress. You are there to find dates. Dress
like you are going out on a date.
What should I not talk about at the dating event?
In order to create a safe, comfortable and enjoyable evening for everyone,
there are 3 subjects that you are not allowed to discuss at any time during
an dating event.
