We have answers.......
A) Let's face the reality-you know it takes meeting a number of people before you find someone you click with. But how do you meet them? Bars, blind dates, or online? Speed dating is a fun way to meet a lot of other singles in the DMV area, who are also looking to find someone special. Participants are all seated at different tables while the men (or women-LGBT speed dating events) rotate every 6 minutes until everyone has met. At the end of each 6 minutes "mini-date", a whistle is blown and participants secretly select YES or NO on their scorecards. In order to have a perfect match, both participants have to select YES on their scorecards. At the end of the evening, all scorecards are collected by the hosts. You will receive your perfect matches the next day via email whether you had successful matches or not.
A) It is natural to arrive a little nervous to a speed dating event, particularly if you have never been speed dating before. Most of our participants are first timers, so relax and smile. Everyone is on the same boat – they want to meet new people just like you. Our events are fun and easy going, so come with an open mind and a big smile. Feel free to contact us prior to the event. Your hosts, Dr. Dan and Marketa, will make you feel comfortable.
A) Expect to have fun in a relaxed environment. Please arrive on time. Our event will start promptly at designated time. If you arrive late, we may not be able to put you into the rotation. If you are running late or cannot attend, please call or text us. The biggest challenge is to have as close as possible women/men ratio so your presence is very important to us and all participants. Upon arrival, you will receive your scorecard and name tag. Most people then order a drink and relax until the event starts. After the event, scorecards are returned to the hosts and you are welcome to stay on chatting to the people you have just met. You will have a fun night. Just come out and try it!
A) Yes, your email will simply state that there were no matches for you. If this happens, do not sweat it. Remember, it takes two to tango as they say. Everyone has a preference, including you! Everyone will receive an e-mail within 24 hours of the event. In case you did not hear from us, please contact us. It is possible we do not have your correct e-mail address or our result e-mail went to your spam folder.
A) Each event is priced differently but our regular price for Speed Dating is $25 via Eventbrite or our website. The price at the door is $30 (cash only). We encourage all participants to register early as many events sell out. If you register but cannot come, please let us know in advance so we can add people from our waiting list. And remember, an RSVP will not secure a spot for you. Be sure to register early!
