Go the venue at the published start time for the event. There is no official start time to the speed dating portion of the evening - we like to wait for all daters to arrive, to have a moment to settle in with a refreshment and mingle should they wish. Flirty and fun, your Scorecard is just the beginning. Chat up our Hosts for tips or simply to ask, which direction the bar is in!. Simply jot down your potential 'Date-Mates' at the bottom of your Scorecard and we'll take care of the rest.
For those who garner matches, you will be notified via e-mail within 24 hours of the event ending of your 'Date-Mate' results. Alas, the event is over but the night has just begun. Feel free to stay as long as you would like to mingle further. All we need are the 'Date-Mate' Scorecards to determine if love is in the air for you.
With a British sensibility and simplicity, we offer uncompromising value with unparalleled service.
Lovely venues and our lovely Hosts to assist you with anything or anyone. It is American Speed Dating with an English touch. Rewarding lovely daters with discounts and complimentary events while saying no thank you to anyone we don't think you'll fancy meeting. Do the British Really Do it Better? Most speed dating parties are a bit like being at a college job fair. Do you have to be British to attend?
Absolutely not! We are British founded and inspired but our daters are just like you. What type of people can I expect to meet? We tend to draw a crowd that is intelligent and amusing, sophisticated and adventurous, while always being cheeky. We are in part defined by our venues and our crowd reflects such. How do I reserve my place?
Simply register online and you're all set! No paper tickets are required. You will be sent a confirmation from us and your name will be noted on our Guest List. Do you screen your speed daters? In the 11 years we have had the pleasure of serving daters we've noticed the nicer a dater is to us, our hosts and each other, the more matches they get. Those that tend to see the good in everything and everyone - are just what we and our daters are looking for. If we don't think a dater is someone that fellow daters would get on with - we'll respectfully decline service and reserve the right to do so.
Are you affiliated with any 'Meet-Up' groups? We think 'Meet-Up' is a lovely free service that gives those of similar interests the opportunity to connect. We do question businesses that promote their events through "Meet-Up" groups - only to redirect you to their own website. Some companies tout that they partner with many organizations including Craigslist offerings and 'Meet-Up' groups for their events.
We do not. What happens if the event is sold out? We wish we could accommodate everyone!
Unfortunately, the fun goes quick! Also, it is a good idea to keep checking back on our website as sometimes reservations become available at the last minute. We are continually updating our event calendar. What time should I show up for the Event? Published start times can be found in the event description. Please try to avoid doing anything unsafe in your attempt to arrive to the event on time - we do like to wait for all participants to arrive. This may cause an event to start late but we feel a perfect opportunity to chat up the hosts, have a lovely refreshment and settle in.
There is no set start time for the speed dating portion of the night - we like to wait for all daters to arrive, settle in and grab a refreshment before the speed dating portion. You checked each other on your scorecards and your email address will be exchanged with this person 24 hours after the event.
Only daters that garner matches are notified approx. Chat up your prospective 'Date-Mates' minutes at a time. Sometimes, for our larger events, this may be shortened by 1 or 2 minutes to accommodate all of the mini-dates in a timely fashion. So Little time; So much to say. Just have fun and go with it! Can I return for free if I don't get a match at an event?
Unlike other speed dating companies that offer free spots to those that don't receive matches, we take a different approach to returning guests.
