Slow Dating Guarantee
At each Slow Dating Speed Dating event,
we guarantee that you will meet someone that you would like to see again. If you
do not meet someone that you would like to see again you are entitled to attend
another Slow Dating event for free. After attending an event, simply enter your ticks as no, and you will be automatically emailed a message detailing how you will be able to claim your free place to a future Slow Dating
event. If you tick someone that you would like to see someone again, yet you do not receive any
matches, you do not qualify for a free place to a future event. The offer of
free future attendance only applies to future events that you have not
previously booked and must be taken within six months. We will not issue refunds for places already booked for
future events under the guarantee. To qualify for a free booking under the
guarantee you must take part in the whole event. If you leave early or do not
take part in the event you will not qualify. The guarantee is limited to one free event per paid for event. The guarantee is only available if you
do not tick anyone at a speed dating event. It does not apply to parties or
other special events.
