How does speed dating work?

What is Speed Dating?

The busier that our lives become the harder it is to meet new people. Speed dating helps make introductions easy for people. What speed dating does is to offer an opportunity for you to break out of your shell for an evening and meet local single people. The company hosting the event does the work for you; setting up the place, the time and the people. All you need to do is reserve your spot and show up looking your best.

When you arrive at the venue, you will be greeted by the host. They will check you in and provide you with a name tag, a personal dating card, a pen and get you settled in the area that the dates will be taking place.

Once everybody has checked in, your host will explain the basics of speed dating. Ladies will take a seat at each of the numbered tables and the gentlemen will then join them. You will enjoy each others company until your hostess rings a bell or gong indicating that eight minutes are up. You will be given a moment to make a few notes on your personal dating card. The ladies will remain seated while the gentlemen move to the next table. Halfway through everybody will take a 15 minute break to enjoy some appetizers, stretch and mingle.

After just a few more dates the evening will be over and your host will collect the bottom half of your personal dating card. The following day you will receive an email from the speed dating service with a list of your matches. After that it's up to you to do the rest.

Classic Speed Dating

Classic Speed Dating is a pre-arranged dating style that is designed to allow singles to date a number of other singles in a safe, friendly, and fun environment.

Why speed dating?
It saves time; first impressions are permanent, why waste time on agonizing dates from people you have met only online? Speed Dating presents a great opportunity to meet new and interesting people in your area. You spend seven minutes with each date before determining whether or not you want to connect with that person again.

How it works
Guests are greeted at the door by the event host, sign in, will probably receive some free drink tickets! The activity then encourages the guests to mingle and interact with each other. At the host’s cue, men and women sit in their assigned seats, and go for their seven, seven minute dates.

Procedure
Women and men are asked to sit in their assigned seats. After seven minutes, the host signals the men to move to their next seat while the women remain seated.

What is included in the price?
You are provided with up to 12 dates, and usually some beverages and appetizers in a private dating atmosphere.

Trading contact information
You will be provided with a dating card where you will list the names of the members of the opposite sex, and after the end of the date you will indicate whether or not you wish to trade contact information with that person. If BOTH people wish to trade contact information, the hostess will email you with notification of the match within 24 hours of the event.
