Pre-Dating Speed Dating    Speed Dating 101

Most people tell us how much they enjoyed the event, even if they don't 'make a match' but more than two-thirds of Pre-Daters match with at least one person. Our advice is to go with no expectations -- you'll be more confident and able to be yourself if you don't put too much pressure on the evening. Bring a friend if it makes you more comfortable. You're just going to have a nice night, check out a cool location, and talk to some friendly people. If more than that happens, even better!
  • Buy a ticket on our website, and we'll put you on the event list - you don't need an e-ticket. Mark your calendar.
  • Dress casual: informal, relaxed attire that's still polished. Most people are coming straight from work. Similar to what you'd wear to an after work happy hour, be yourself and comfortable, but please no flip flops or shorts.
  • Give yourself enough time to find the location and parking.
  • Show up a few minutes early and look for our friendly Event Host to welcome you. Tell us your name and we'll check you in, give you a name tag, a Match Sheet, and a pen. We'll tell you where to sit and give instructions.
  • When we start, you'll talk to 6-12 (sometimes more) singles of the opposite gender, one-at-a-time in a series of 6-minute "Pre-Dates". We make the number of men and women as equal as possible. We'll facilitate so you'll meet everyone. Talk about whatever you like, but keep it light & friendly.
  • After you meet each one, circle who you’d like to speak with again and they'll do the same.
  • Write a small note on the match sheet describing each person (red hair, blue shirt, went to Georgia Tech, likes Indian food, etc) so you can remember who's who when you get your matches. Take a picture of the sheet with your phone before you hand it to the Host.
  • Within 24-hours of the end of the event we'll text and email you the results. If you have 'matches' they'll receive your email address, and you'll get theirs. We don't share phone numbers - we leave that for you. You’ll likely have one or more matches, but it's not about quantity it's about quality. You may have no matches from your first event and have four at the next.

After that, it’s up to you! Since you’ve had a Pre-Date, your chances of making a more lasting connection are vastly increased. We hope to see you at an event soon!
