How Speed Dating Works

When you arrive at the venue you will be greeted by our friendly professional hosts. Once everyone has arrived and received their numbered name badge, score card and pen we will briefly explain the format of the evening and confirm how many people you will be dating. Once the speech is finished the ladies will make their way to the table number that matches their name badge. Once the ladies are seated the guys will follow.

You will have 4 minutes to chat to each date, once the 4 minutes is over we will ring a bell to indicate the time is up. Four minutes is long enough to see if you click with the person you are talking to and whether you would like to see them again and also short enough if you don't.

At the end of each date you have a brief few moments to make some notes on the person you have just dated. This is something to help jog your memory for the post event matching process the next day.

Half way through the event you will have a 15-20 minute break so you can nip to the toilet or top up your drink. Once all the dates are over you have the opportunity to stay on at the venue to mingle freely with others. Please remember to take your score card home with you.

Post Event

No later than 10:30am the following morning our sophisticated matching system will be unlocked for you to enter your details. You can tick as many or as little people from the night before. Remember if you don't find anyone suitable and tick them all as a No, we will offer you a free event as part of our guarantee.

What people who have been with us really think...

Very impressed by the whole event from the website, the customer telephone service, venue, host and after the event and the matching system....particularly for nervous people and those who are not confident online. Would go again and recommend. Thank you. BarrieBournemouth
