FAQ

WHO WILL I MEET?

The great thing about Speed Dating is our attendees are open minded and adventurous. They're willing to try something new and are there for the same reason you are, to meet new people.

HOW DO I RESERVE MY PLACE?

Select the EVENTS tab from the top of the home page where you can pick which night you want to join us. Once you have made your booking, a seat is reserved for you. You will be sent confirmation and your name will be added to the list. There is no need for printing any tickets.

HOW MANY PEOPLE WILL I MEET?

Our events are always guaranteed to have between 10 - 12 dates per night.

HOW LONG WILL EACH DATE GO FOR?

The dates usually last between 6 - 7 minutes. 

WHAT TIME DOES IT END?

The night goes for about 2 hours. But it doesn't have to end there. Many of our attendees continue on socialising at the venue.

ARE THE ATTENDEES SCREENED?

The nicer a dater is to us, the hosts and each other the more successful the nights tend to be. If we feel the prospective dater would not be appropriate then we will respectfully decline service and we reserve the right to do so. 

WHAT TIME SHOULD I ARRIVE?

The published start dates are located in the EVENTS. Please ensure you arrive 15 minutes before your start time so you can settle in and get a drink (maybe some Dutch courage). We like to make sure all our attendees have arrived before we start the dates so please be mindful of your start time.  

WHAT IS THE DRESS CODE?

Although there is no formal dress code, we recommend you dress to impress. The EVENTS are held in bars so suitable clothing is appropriate. 

WHAT HAPPENS IF THE EVENT IS SOLD OUT?

Tickets move fast so we recommend you REGISTER and join the mailing list to get first allocations. If however an event is sold out, send us an email and keep checking back on the event as last minute places can become available. 

WHAT SHOULD I TALK ABOUT?

The important thing is to be yourself and try to avoid approaching the date as a job interview. Remember, you and your date are going to have a minimum 15 dates so try to avoid repetitive questions. For more on what to talk about visit our BLOG section.

CAN I COME WITH FRIENDS?

Of course. Please let us know during booking if you would like to be seated near each other. Although a majority of our attendees do come alone with our hosts making sure no one feels awkward and 'out of the circle'.

HOW DOES THE MATCHING WORK?

At the end of the night, your date cards are collated and your matches are emailed to you within 24 hours.

HOW CAN I PAY FOR A TICKET?

You can purchase tickets via Credit Card or Direct Deposit. Cash payments on the night are not accepted.
