Speed dating faq
Upon arrival at an event, you will be asked to provide your driver's licence to confirm birth dates.
We will record your birth date only for the purpose of confirming ages to keep the integrity of the events.
For example, I had one fellow who came and didn't make any connections.
When I called him, I could sense his disappointment.
It is easier to chat with comfortable friends rather than converse with new people. Also, there is no competition with a friend for the same attendees.
We do take great care not to place you at the same event as a previous match, while seeing a person or two that you have met, but not matched with is usually fine with participants.
If there is any problem, we would suggest to one or the other that they return on a different date.
For the stats lovers, we match an average of 76% of the people who attend. Some people make multiple matches, some make one match and some people don't match at a particular event (but they often match the next time). We find that when we contact people with the disappointing news, they tend to get down on themselves or the other participants. Maybe the right person just wasn't there that night.
Decide you're going to go out and do something different and have fun with it. Reading profiles gives you something to do if there's a short lull in the conversation. Ask about things that are more specific nature to that person. You may find our emails in your SPAM folders or on an Email Blocked list depending on your server preferences (ask your IT guy).
If you meet someone special, consider it a bonus, but don't go looking for it. Introduce yourself and consider that other people may also be shy and nervous. Women should not leave it all up to the man to initiate. Do not come to an event with great expectations and wedding plans. They are relaxed and tend to put other people at ease making them more approachable. Formulate some ideas of what you might ask others when there is a lull in the conversation. Adding [email protected] Speed to your email Address Book and Safe Senders list should help.
