Please note as with all our dating categories, we do not pre-vet guests.
It is traditional Speed Dating with an English touch.
Some companies tout that they partner with many organizations including Craigslist offerings and 'Meet-Up' groups for their events. There is no set start time for the speed dating portion of the night - we like to wait for all daters to arrive, settle in and grab a refreshment before the speed dating portion. Only daters that garner matches are notified approx. How long will I chat with my Prospective ‘Date-Mate’?
For daters that garner matches, you will be notified via email of your ‘Date-Mate’s’ first name and email within 24 hours of the event ending.We don’t find anything romantic about name tags, microphones and whistles – so we don’t use them! Daters that don’t like to settle and tend to set the trend rather than follow it. You will be sent a confirmation from us and your name will be noted on our Guest List.~~Do you screen your speed daters?We are in part defined by our venues and our crowd reflects such. Simply select the EVENT SCHEDULE tab on the homepage for a listing of our events. In the 11 years we have had the pleasure of serving daters we've noticed the nicer a dater is to us, our hosts and each other, the more matches they get.For some singles this is very important, which is why we created our elite dating and professional dating niches many years ago.We have been holding elite dating since 2004, so we have a lot of experience in this style of dating.If we don't think a dater is someone that fellow daters would get on with - we'll respectfully decline service and reserve the right to do so. We think 'Meet-Up' is a lovely free service that gives those of similar interests the opportunity to connect. Also, it is a good idea to keep checking back on our website as sometimes reservations become available at the last minute. Please try to avoid doing anything unsafe in your attempt to arrive to the event on time - we do like to wait for all participants to arrive.We do question businesses that promote their events through "Meet-Up" groups - only to redirect you to their own website. This may cause an event to start late but we feel a perfect opportunity to chat up the hosts, have a lovely refreshment and settle in.
