Top Dating SitesFall in Love For All the Right Reasons: Compatibility based on 25+ criteria
1. What is Speed Dating?
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, or email address and phone number.
3-10 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 3-10 minutes is way too long if you
know what we mean. But in 3-10 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!
6. What are the disadvantages to Speed Dating?
The company does not screen attendees as part of the registration process. You attend a party with full knowledge you will be meeting most of the party attendees of the opposite sex. It is assumed that participants are single and the age range specified for the party, and if a niche party such as Christian or Jewish, that attendees are that faith. You may have a great evening with 5-10 matches at one party and then come up practically empty handed after the next. Just like internet dating, you are meeting TOTAL STRANGERS. There are no filters except for if you attend a niche party such as Jewish, Christian, Single No Kids, and Single with Kids. Parties are typically advertised as reaching professionals. But, attendees are from all walks of life: blue collar, white collar, professionals, educated, uneducated, students, skinny, fit, overweight, sharp dressers, poor dressers, sophisticated, country types, never married, divorced, single parents.
What are the statistics?
Is anything provided at the event?
Typically, the company will provide scorecards, pens and nametags. Typically drinks are out of your own pocket. Some events may provide appetizers prior to the start of the event.
Can you pay at the door? When should you sign up?
You must sign up in advance. Sign up as soon as you know you can attend an event. Most cities have high demand for parties. The women typically fill up a party much faster than the men.
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. For more tips go to First Impressions
What should I not talk about at the dating event?
If you meet someone who you would like to go out with, you may inform them that you’ll be putting their name on your score card, but don’t pressure them to put your name on their card. If they are interested they will put your name on their card. Remember, everyone at the event is interested in meeting people to date. If you’re having an mini date with someone who you’re not interested in dating again, take the opportunity to learn something from them. Just because there’s no love interest, you might be surprised by how interesting people can be if you ask the right questions!
