I am not within the recommended age/interest group. Can I attend anyway? Please choose a Pre-Dating party that is within the recommended interest group and age range that you wish to date and in which you personally fit. What if there are only a few people there? This shouldn't happen. We value your time and if there are a lot of last minute cancellations or a blizzard or whatever, we work very hard to contact everyone with as much advanced notice as possible. Our Attendance Guarantee: If for whatever reason we had 5 or fewer pairings or 5 or fewer of one gender we will make it up by providing you with an EVENT CREDIT to a future event.

We know how critical attendance is to the success of speed dating events and your experience at our events. That's why we have an attendance guarantee. Our goal is to hold the events we schedule and are very careful about scheduling events to ensure they are successful. How long does a session take? Each session takes about an hour and a half to two hours depending on turnout and whether food is served at the event. How much time do I have to talk to someone? Typically 6 minutes per person but depending upon attendance and other factors you may have 5 minutes or as high as 7 minutes. We'll let you know how much time you have before we start the event. 6 minutes doesn't seem like a lot of time is it enough? Remember, you're not on a date, you're on a Pre-Date! Pre-Dating Speed Dating is a great way to see if you'd be interested in a full date or just more conversation later. Sometimes 6 minutes is way too long, if you know what we mean. But in 6 minutes most people can tell if there's physical chemistry, if they like the way someone speaks, if the person is mature and intelligent, and if they want to know more. At which point they'd select YES on their Match Sheet that they would like to hear from that person again!
I've attended before, how do you make sure I don't meet the same people? After all, it is as they say a numbers game and Pre-Dating helps even the odds so to speak. We are the only speed dating company that has been granted a Patent for a process to help ensure that anyone who has attended our events in the past will meet new people every time they attend. It's unique and we're really excited about how it enhances your event experience. If you are a returning attendee. How should I dress for the event? It's your call. Seriously, many people come directly from work so you'll see business casual or even a suit or two. If it's a later event session people might be dressed down a bit but you probably won't see any torn blue jeans. You know what to do, be comfortable, look good, and smile! How will my matches contact me? When you arrive at a Pre-Dating event we give you a Match Sheet where you will select throughout the evening who you would like to hear from again. You can of course choose when to communicate and what personal information you would like to exchange with those you meet. How long does it take before I get my matches?

You may also view your match results by logging into your Pre-Dating account. What if I don't get any matches? Our advice is if you're not completely sure, just say Yes because you never know give them another chance and they may surprise you. . Just our way of helping out as we've found that it sometimes takes more than one event to make a special connection! If asked, your friendly Event Coordinator will be happy to give you some suggestions on how to improve your match rate, just ask. If this happens, don't sweat it. Remember, it takes two to tango as they say. Everyone has a preference, including you! Who contacts who? We encourage both parties to contact each other. Remember, you already know the other person is interested in hearing from you again! What if I contact one of my matches and they don't reply? Why not try one more time?
I don't have a credit card, can I still attend? Certainly, we accept checks online and in the mail. After filling out the registration form and proceeding to the secure server, you will have the choice to select credit card or online check. We accept Visa, Mastercard, Amex and Discover. There is also a way you can. How many events can I attend? As many as you want, but we lose customers all the time because they find a lasting match through one of our events! I like it! I'm ready to make new connections. Now what? That's the simple part. Don't be shut out, simply and then click on the Register link for the event you want to attend now before the event fills up! If the event you want to register is full, be sure to join the Waiting List as spots often open up as the event date approaches. I wanted to register but it says the event is full, what do I do?
We're sorry! To ensure the best possible experience, each event has a maximum capacity and our system is programmed with this information. When one gender fills up, it may temporarily pause event registrations for that gender to allow the other gender to catch up so the event stays gender balanced. When an event completely fills up, the system does not permit any additional registrations for that event (obviously there's only so many seats/tables at venues where events are held). However, we often add people from that event's Waiting List so we encourage you to sign up for that. The Waiting List link will be shown only when the session you're interested in is full. What If I Don't See Any Scheduled Events In My City/Area? An event may be in the works but isn't listed on the Web site yet. Also, we may be looking for a new Event Coordinator (host) for your city. Join Our Mailing List so you'll be the first to know about newly scheduled events. You might even consider coordinating events in your area in which case please read the next question/answer. I like the concept! How do I become a Pre-Dating Event Coordinator? If you've got even a little bit of entrepreneur in you we would love to discuss it.
