Unexpectedly single again? If you're thinking of finding someone special, the prospect of dating can be daunting. Maybe you're over 30, 40, or 50+ and getting back into dating after decades and it feels a little strange. But it's never too late to find the love of your life or simply some wonderful companionship. There are countless men and women who have found happiness with a new partner in middle age or even later. You could be one of them. Our events are the perfect way to get your feet wet, by letting you practice talking to people face to face, and helping you figure out what you like and don't like. Let’s face it: even as adults, it can be hard trying to initiate a date. It’s not just teenagers who get butterflies in their stomachs! Adults go through the same nerve-wracking process whether they’re in their mid-20s or late-30s or older. Sometimes an extra hand in facilitating, in an inviting environment can help people project their true selves, and that’s what Pre-Dating Speed Dating and Lock and Key events are about. Our speed dating events allows Attendees to show off their awesome personalities.
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.
