We are all busy people. We sometimes work long hours and all the people we meet are work colleagues or friends of our friends. What if we want to take a leap beyond that circle of acquaintances?
The speed dating idea has been invented in the US. It was originated in the west coast and has since been a very successful format of meeting a large number of people, without having to spend a whole evening with one person who might be the wrong one.
It is also a great way of saying no to someone without offending him or her. It is a cool way of having a selection of people to choose from and say YES to the potentially right one.
So what are you waiting for? You can, for a relatively small amount of money, meet around 15 different potential partners in a single night. If you believe your eyesight and not a picture on a computer then you should sign in for the next event and try your luck.
Please note that events start at 8pm and you should arrive 15-30 minutes earlier.
How does it work?
The idea is simple. For a small amount of money, we will get you to meet up to 20 single people in your age group.
The evenings are held at a local or centrally located trendy bar. You will be seated around tables, or sofas. The women stay seated during the event and the men move around from one table to the next when the 5 minutes are up.
At the end of the 5 minutes of each round, the bell will ring giving the men the signal to move on to the next table and meet with the next woman. After each date the participants mark on the form they have received in advance, whether they would like to meet that person again. A simple YES or NO will determine whether you would like to see that person again or not.
So, in short: Upon arrival you will be checked in and receive a form naming the list of people you will meet. You will have some time to mingle, get used to the atmosphere and have a drink. We will show you which table to attend for your first date. You will spend 5 minutes talking to the person opposite you. At the end of this encounter you will tick in the designated box whether you wish to see that person again or not. The men then move to the next table. We will give you a break at some point in order to get another drink or freshen up.
At the end of the event everyone are welcome to stay around for another drink and mingle.
Please make sure you have the sheet listing the people you have met.
