How a Pre-Dating Speed Dating Events Works

How Pre-Dating Speed Dating Events Works Our Events are very fun and relaxed. Most people tell us how much they enjoyed the event, even if they don't 'make a match.' Our advice is to go with no expectations -- you'll be more confident and able to be yourself if you don't put too much pressure on the evening. You're just going to have a nice night, check out a cool location, and talk to some friendly people. If more than that happens, even better! Bring a friend if it makes you more comfortable, they're always welcome at the venue and can watch from a nearby table having a drink if they're not dating.

1. Buy your ticket on our website, and we put you on the list. Mark your calendar.

2. Show up at the location a few minutes early and look for our friendly Event Host to welcome you. Tell us your name and we'll check you in, and give you a name tag, a Match Sheet and a pen. We'll tell you at which table to sit.

3. When we start, you'll talk to 6-12 (sometimes more) singles of the opposite gender, one-at-a-time in a series of 6-minute "Pre-Dates". We'll facilitate so you'll meet everyone. After you meet each one, circle who you’d like to speak with again and they'll do the same.

4. Within 24-hours of the event we'll email you. If you have 'matches' they'll get your email address, and you'll get theirs. We don't share phone numbers - we leave that for you. You’ll likely have one or more matches (more than two-thirds of Pre-Daters match at least one person).

5. After that, it’s up to you! Since you’ve had a Pre-Date, your chances of making a more lasting connection are vastly increased.
