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.
Unlike other speed dating companies that offer free spots to those that don't receive matches, we take a different approach to returning guests.
Those that receive matches, are quite popular and absolutely lovely - are often invited back with discounts or with our compliments. Please feel free to select the age range most comfortable for you.
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. You checked each other on your scorecards and your email address will be exchanged with this person 24 hours after the event.
Your ‘Date-Mate’ will also receive your name and email.
Can I return for free if I don't get a match at an event?
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.
Our 'Night For Suzanne' is a great way to give back and have fun while doing it!
Donate to the Joan Gaeta Foundation or any Cancer charity of your choice in the amount of your purchase - let us know you did - and we'll add you to the guest list of your desired event. For more information about the Joan Gaeta Foundation partnership, click here!
This ensures a fabulous pool of daters that others want to meet.~~Is Food included with my Speed Raleigh Dating ticket price? The length of an event is based on the number of daters in attendance. Most Daters say this is when the fun really starts! Our hosts will gladly accommodate seating for all ticketed members of your party. If you don’t see a range suitable for you please check back or let us know. You will absolutely not be photographed or filmed without your prior consent.
From time to time venues may provide light nibbles for the guests. Generally, our events last about 2 hours including intermission. Feel free to stay and mingle for as long as you want. If you would like to be seated together please let us know. I Am Older or Younger than your age ranges – may I still attend? While we and our daters are often called upon for special filmed events, they are scheduled as private events and are by invitation only.
