There is no official start time to the speed dating portion of the evening - we like to wait for all daters to arrive, to have a moment to settle in with a refreshment and mingle should they wish.
Our personable hosts will assist you with your Speed NY 'Date-Mate' Scorecard.
Lovely venues and our lovely Hosts to assist you with anything or anyone. We at Speed NY Dating, do things a wee bit differently. We are British founded and inspired but our daters are just like you. We tend to draw a crowd that is intelligent and amusing, sophisticated and adventurous, while always being cheeky.
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?
Alas, the event is over but the night has just begun.
Go to the venue at the published start time for the event.
Chat up your prospective 'Date-Mates' 6-7 minutes at a time. In today’s world we tend to know in a matter of minutes if we ‘click’ with someone.
Sometimes, for our larger events, this may be shortened by 1 or 2 minutes to accommodate all of the mini-dates in a timely fashion. You can also chat further with your prospective ‘Date-Mate’ at intermission or mingle after the event. How will I know I have any Speed NY ‘Date Mates’ and how do I contact my Speed NY ‘Date-Mate’?
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.
Much like a private club, not every dater is for us.
All we need are the 'Date-Mate' Scorecards to determine if love is in the air for you. Rewarding lovely daters with discounts and complimentary events while saying no thank you to anyone we don't think you'll fancy meeting. Most American speed dating parties are a bit like being at a college job fair.
