Enter BLUE GROTTO's lower level front door, go upstairs to the 2nd floor to a private floor reserved just for our speed dating event. After checking in with the event host or hostess, you will be given a numbered name tag, score sheet, pen, and seat assignment. Up to 20 single men and 20 single women will be seated at 20 separate numbered tables. At 2:00 the dates begin, but they happen fairly quickly. You will have just 4 to 5 minutes to talk with your first "date". After 4 to 5 minutes of conversation with the first date 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 the event host, as will all the men and women. The next day you will receive an e-mail from the event host 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. 76% 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 similar in age to you. Single men and women who are frustrated with the aggravations of online dating. Lots of nice looking people usually exceeding people's expectations. Date ready people wanting to prescreen potential second dates. Singles that were disappointed with free events or pay at the door events with 75% no show rate (SpeedDateKC prepay speed date events guarantee high attendance rate, nearly 100%!) How to dress, nervousness, no pressure or expectations 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. Everyone is a little nervous beforehand and that is natural. After the first rotation everyone finally relaxes and realizes how much fun the event is and that there is no pressure. You don't have to ask anyone for a second date or turn anyone down for a date, the score sheets will do all the work for you! The next day you will receive your mutual matches email contact information. Actual Testimonials: "I met a kind and wonderful man and couldn't have asked for more. Still dating!" "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." "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." "Also a great way just to meet people who want to be friends or to hang out with." "Thanks for doing this! Keep doing these events!" -attendees after six events in October, November and December. What if I don't get any mutual matches? It is unlikely, but it can happen. 76% of attendees so far have made one or more mutual matches at an event. Some people get many mutual matches. One event even had 92% of attendees get mutual match results! Bigger events have better chances and so far each month the events have grown. You have 20 people to meet and an opportunity to circle yes on your score sheet for one or more people. The more YES's you circle the better your chances. Previous/Future events Eight speed dating events so far in October and November, December, January 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 were at John's Big Deck Sports Bar DowntownJanuary events were in Brookside and SOLD OUT. 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. 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.
