Pre-Dating Gives Back!


On Sunday, June 22nd, Pre-Dating Speed Dating C.O.O., Michael Clarke held the "3rd Annual Singles for a Cure: A Cancer Benefit" in Tampa, Florida supporting the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society


"This was the 3rd year in a row that myself, Dr. Nancy H. Wall and her team over at Tampa Bay MatchMakers, in conjunction with The Pour House Tampa and City Dog Cantina have held this event in support of a wonderful local charitable organization.


What I found this year, more then ever, is the amount of people who were incredibly touched by the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and the work they have done to help them, or people close to them. It was a smashing success with just under $2,000.00 raised in a few short hours." Said Michael of the event. 


Pre-Dating Speed Dating would like to thank all of those men and women who attended this event and donated so graciously to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.


If you are interested in donating, You can click HERE to be redirected to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Donation Page.


If you are part of a charitable organization, and would like to hold an event as a fund raiser, please contact your local event coordinator by going to






Questions From Other Singles Like You

Wondering about Speed Dating events or how Pre-Dating does them? Maybe just a relationship question in general? Some other people did as well and here are their questions to us.


If you have a question, simply email us at and if selected for our next Newsletter you’ll get a complimentary ticket to one of our events.




Dear Pre-Dating,


I have been dating someone now for a little over a month. We were "hot and heavy" at first, but now, we see each other maybe once a week, and the text's have slowed from 20+ texts a day, to 4 or 5. In my head, I feel that "He's just not that into me", but I really like him, and I want this to work! HELP! 


Answer from Pre-Dating


Dear "He loves me, he loves me not":


One thing I will say, is this is a common behavior, as far as the reduction in text's and/ or calls after the first few weeks and dates. Especially if you both went out a lot your first few weeks. 


What I do want you to think about though, is not so much the quantity of dates, calls, or texts, but the quality. For example, if he goes from "Good morning gorgeous" or, "Good morning sexy", to "Good Morning Buddy", then I would assume that he's just not that into you. 


Now- this isn't always the case. He may have been hurt before, and is putting up walls. Your best approach to this is having a sit down conversation and discuss what YOU want out of the relationship and what you need to get there. Is this easy to do? Absolutely not! You don't want to be rejected! But what's worse is moving forward with no path or direction. You need to discuss with this person a plan of action. If he is not into it, you will know, and you can decide what you need to do for yourself after that. 




Hi Pre-Dating,


I have to be honest, I feel a bit jaded after a divorce and, since, two failed relationships; I wonder if I am better off being single. I feel like I cannot take one more heartbreak. What do you suggest?

Answer from Pre-Dating


Dear "Jaded",


The most important thing to remember, is that dating is simply a "number game". Many people who have been in your shoes feel the same sense of rejection and heartbreak. You are NOT alone in these feelings, or the position you are currently in.


With that said, it does not hurt to take time off from being focused on being in a long term relationship. Personally speaking, I took 2 years 'off' from the dating pool as I needed to explore myself, and focus on me, and no one else. Personal exploration can help you in the realms of self admiration, independence and leave time to build friendships and career opportunities. What you may find surprising, is you may really enjoy the "single life", as you find that your priorities tend to shift in a different, more self driven manner. The hardest hurdle to cross is getting away from the "Co-Dependent" mentality and become "Independent", but in time, this will begin to become easier and easier.


Does this mean you should completely STOP dating? No. Continue dating here and there, but stay focused on you, and not focused on diving into a relationship. Enjoy dating, don't make it a 'chore' as so many people tend to do. You only live once- why be negative, when you can change your mindset to be more positive and proactive? 






Every Month, Pre-Dating wants to offer you personally selected training courses which are offered to help you get the most out of dating in the real world. Please find our special partner offers below!

Roy's Relationship Corner



Over the last few months, IÕve been challenging single people everywhere to adopt the 7 commitments that comprise, The Conscious Dating Manifesto. Today we look at commitment #3 and if you want to catch up on any that youÕve missed, email me at, and IÕll send them to you.


The third conscious commitment is about Candor, and as I do every month, IÕm going explain it, but IÕm also going share its Òevil twin,Ó the opposite of the commitment. Choosing the commitment over its Òevil twinÓ is the key to enjoying your dating experience and attracting your ideal partner.






I commit to revealing rather than concealing, meeting each dating experience with complete candor, openly and honestly sharing my thoughts, concerns, wants and feelings.


Now, hereÕs its Òevil twin.Ó This is how most people liveÉ






I commit to playing games by misleading or deceiving the people I date, withholding my truth (including facts, feelings, concerns, wants, things I imagine) and speaking in a way that allows me to avoid, control or manipulate an outcome.


I have yet to meet a person who wants to be in a relationship with a Òconcealer.Ó Everyone wants an open, honest and candid partner. But rarely do I meet someone whoÕs willingÑI mean truly willingÑto be candid themselves. Knowing that the Law of Attraction means Òlike attracts like,Ó you must be willing to be candid if you want a partner who is candid. You always attract after your own kind.


The simple truth is this: In our love lives, we are either motivated by Fear or Love. Those are the only two choices. If weÕre coming from Fear, we conceal in order to control, and, if weÕre coming from Love, we reveal in order to relate. Which path will you choose?


If you have questions about this commitment, send me a note at, and if youÕd like to learn more about me and my coaching practice, click those links.

Featured Testimonial


Hi Emma,


I wanted to share some great news with You.  Last year I attended (for the 1st time ever) a speed dating event which was held at The Still in Timonium, Md. On April 15, 2013.   

I met the woman of my dreams that night and we started dating.  Her name is Karen.   


So fast forward to Friday May 9th, 2014.   I actually reserved the same room at The Still, that the speed dating event was held in, and set up the table the exact same way it was when I met herÉshe was at Table 10.  I had her fill out a Post Speed Dating Questionnaire in which she had to respond with a ÒYesÓ or ÒNoÓ answer to ALL of the questions.  I have to let You know that the questions were such that the ONLY answer she could give was a ÒYesÓ.  The purpose of my questionnaire was to get her used to saying ÒYESÓ, and thatÕs because the final question that I had for her was not on the written questionnaire. 


It was at approx. 5:45pm on Friday May 9, 2014, in a room at The Still, that I got down on my knee, with engagement ring in hand, and asked her my final questionÉKaren, ÒWill You Marry Me?Ó  And she said ÒYES!!!Ó


There is so much more to ÒOurÓ storyÉbut I wanted to Thank You for setting up that particular speed dating event, because I met My PERFECT Match!!!  Thanks again Emma! 


- Scott (Baltimore, MD)
