Enter John's Big Deck Bar lower level front door, go immediately upstairs to the 2nd floor to a private floor reserved just for our speed dating event. After checking in with the event host, Steve, you will be given a numbered name tag, score sheet, pen, and seat assignment. You and up to 20 single men and 20 single women will be seated at 20 separate numbered tables. At 7:00 the dates begin, but they happen fairly quickly. You will have just 3 to 4 minutes to talk with your first "date". After 3 to 4 minutes of conversation a signal to the group will cause the men to rotate to the next table and meet with their next female "date". Just have a short casual conversation and you should know right away if there is any chemistry. As you rotate through dates #1 through #20 you will privately circle “yes” or “no” next to their name and number on your private score sheet. At the end of the night you will turn in your score sheet with your choices to Steve, as will all the men and women. The next day you will receive an e-mail from Steve with the names and emails of any matches that also marked "yes" next to your name and number on their score sheet. Then it is up to you to contact your matches with a friendly hello through e-mail and set up a second date. They will be looking forward to hearing from you because not only did you pick them, they picked you! Basically, after meeting up to 20 singles, you get to choose the one or one's you'd like to meet again on a scoresheet. Pick as many as you like, but the next day you will only receive the email addresses of those that picked you as well. 66% of the attendees make one or more mutual matches! Who goes? All sorts of single people, but mostly single professionals who are seriously looking for a new companion with similar interests. Singles in your age group. People who are frustrated with online dating, fake profiles, and free events with 75% no show rate (prepay events guarantee attendance!) How to dress, etc. Dress casually and comfortably for these events. Keep in mind making a good first impression is important, but don't over or under do it. You want to be your natural self and relaxed. Be sure to smile! Come alone or come with a friend. About half of the attendees come alone and about half come with a same gender friend or opposite gender friend. Testimonials: "7 years ago at a speed dating event, I met my match, we ended up dating, getting engaged, and now we are happily married. If I were still single and looking for someone to date speed dating is the easiest way." -Bob N. "I moved here because of my job from another state, meeting potential dates was hard for me, but speed dating put me face to face with lots of interesting men." -Simone "Also a great way just to meet people who want to be friends or to hang out with." -Tim "Thanks for doing this! Keep doing these events!" -attendees after the first four events in October and November. What if I don't get any matches? It is unlikely, but it can happen. 66% of attendees so far have received at least one person who would like to hear from them again. Some get many. One event even had 85% of attendees get mutual match results! Bigger events have better chances and so far each event has grown. If you make no matches (rare) you will receive a free credit for the next event, because it may take more than one event for you to meet the right person. Do I still get an email if I make no matches? Yes, everyone gets their mutual match results the next day. If you make no matches the email message will simply say how to get your free credit for the next event in your age group. Events will change venues, will change locations in KC, and change age ranges to guarantee new attendees.Previous/Future events Four speed dating events so far in October and November and growing! October events were at Johnny's Tavern 119th St. in Overland Park November events were at RC's Restaurant and Lounge in South KCDecember events are scheduled at John's Big Deck Sports Bar DowntownJanuary events are likely in Waldo (75th and Wornall) The idea is to move these events around Kansas City and get as many new singles excited about this face to face concept as possible. Got a great venue... let me know!Not only will venues change but also age ranges of events will change from month to month to help ensure you do not meet the same people at back to back events.
