For the virgins of speed dating, we will explain everything you need to know about our events. Do not worry, it is painless and lots of fun. First, how to Speed date?


No need to panic. It is very easy and lots of fun.

1. You will be assigned a Tag number and a scorecard at the night of the event. This scorecard is where you will circle all participants you want to see again and those that you do not feel there is any chemistry or connection with. That is perfectly fine, it happens in all events.

Sample of Score card:

Tag #:____, Name__________ Y N
Tag #:____, Name__________ Y N
Tag #:____, Name__________ Y N
Tag #:____, Name__________ Y N
Tag #:____, Name__________ Y N


If you are not 100% about your choice after the 6 minutes face to face intimate interaction, we would suggest to still choose yes so you can consider a second date to get to know the person better.

It might take more then just 6 minutes to really know the person. The key is to have fun and this is why you are considering speed dating events. Nevertheless, after the event, you can still mingle and continue to get to know the person you are interested in better or decide to leave the event and leave us the responsibility to find the perfect match based on every participantís scorecard. We will take care of the matches, depending on the results we receive. The purpose is to have a blast, and this is our main priority. We want you to come back and bring more friends. However, if you do meet your significant other, then we have done our jobs and wish you the best of luck with this new-found romance. Ok. Letís get back to the nits and grits of speed dating.

2. By looking at the scorecard, you can see the sample with a blank Tag #. Every females tag is numbered from 1 to 20 and males from 21 to 40. No events will go above 20 people of each sex. We do our best to keep these event in low number so we keep it intimate and fun.

3. The women are sat down at their designated table and do not change table throughout the event. Every 6 minutes, participants will here a bell and once the bell is rang, the men gets up, thank the speed dater for these magnificent 6 minutes of their lives spent with you and will move on to the next numbered table. This same process will continue until the end of the evening.

4. Once everyone has gone through a full rotation, the speed dating is coming close to an end but the evening has just started. All participants can stay and continue mingling with the rest of the attendees. Once the mobile version of Lightning speed dating is completed and working flawlessly, all participants will have their matches directly sent to their phone. So once the speed dating event is over, every participant will receive notification of who they are matched up with.


In the meantime that we complete that state of the art mobile app, we will rely on the scorecards we mentioned in the beginning of the How to Speed date. This scorecard, once filled with your choices, will be given back to us at the end of the night for us to process your compatibility. We will manually insert your choice to make sure there are NO mistakes. The great thing is that you do not need to wait for the participant to eventually decide to do it themselves, like 99% of all other speed dating services out there. They leave it up to you to go back home, login to their system and submit your matches. Many participant evidently procrastinate and submit their matches a week or two after the event, while you are here, waiting with who you been matched with. Quite unfair, donít you think?

Our state-of-the-art matching software will determine all matches perfect matches from this event:

1. If you said yes and he or she said yes is a perfect match.

2. If both of you said no, well, obviously, there is no interest on both sides

3. If one of you said yes, the system will still consider it as a No-match because of possible incompatibility in the future. Remember, the decision of lack of compatibility has NOTHING to do against you. A connection has to happen on both sides and this is why we make sure that participant are clear in what they want in a partner prior to the event.


Remember, our system will ONLY match speed daters when BOTH SEX circled yes to meeting again.

That same night, we will input the information on our software and will get back to you the next day with the perfect match(es), which is, if both of you decided your desire to meet again. If you didnít receive any notification, it probably means that no perfect match have been processed by our system for that specific event. No need to worry, it happens in some occasions. Always be open-minded and attend more than one event in that given month. It helps increase the odds of meeting someone special.
