Speed Dating brings together equal numbers of guys and girls in some of
the hottest bars, cocktail lounges and other venues for a crazy night of meeting, mingling, and getting to
one other. Each guy and girl will spend 8 minutes sitting opposite each other, and getting to know one another. After 8 minutes, a bell
is rung, and the guys move along to the next girl. but before they do, everyone decides if they would like to see that person again. If they do, they simply mark that on their match up card.
After about 90 minutes (depending on event size), every guy has spent 8 minutes with every girl.
Why does it work??
It’s a numbers game. If you meet enough people over a
period of time, eventually you will meet someone with whom you “click”. At a
Speed Dating event you’ll meet between 10 and 20 singles of similar age in one
night. Chances are that amongst those singles, there are 2 or 3 whom you’d like
to catch up with again. Many singles are even using Speed Dating as a way to build up their social network. You’ll see some people swapping phone numbers with guys and girls and then inviting everyone around for a BBQ
or meeting up later on Club 555. Speed Dating is about MEETING lively,
confident, outgoing and talkative singles – the rest is up to the chemistry!!
Other speed dating companies will tell you it’s important to be grouped in
events where everyone in the room is exactly the look, height, weight,
occupation that you have on your ‘perfect partner’ checklist….. the reality is
that this is not how life works. Speed Dating attracts ‘real’ singles, from all
walks of life and professions, who genuinely want to meet someone. We hear this
all the time from singles who have tried all the different dating and
matchmaking methods….”Speed Dating events are full of nice people and we have
more fun at your events!!”. That’s not to say special events don’t attract
professionals, of course they do, a large percentage are professionals. Try it and you’ll know exactly what everyone is talking about!
The perfect 8 minutes??
It's not uncommon in a speed dating event
for a regular speed dater (those who come every 6 weeks or so), who have perfected the art of getting matches at
dating events to meet several matches in one event. They know exactly what to say during the 8 minutes which will result in them getting a match.
Those regulars may make 6 to 8 matches in one night, and that means a very busy social schedule over the next 2 months.
