How Pre-Dating Events Work

We’re here to make your Speed Dating experience as fun and stress-free as possible!

  1. See the Events page for a list of all Pre-Dating cities. Each city page has a list of events and a way for you to be notified of future ones.
  2. Choose an event and Register. To ensure equal numbers of men and women, you MUST pre-register, there are no on-site registrations! If you don’t see an event that matches your preferences, please join the Event Notification List.
  3. Right away you’ll get an email with the event details and directions. If you don’t get this email contact us.
  4. Show up a few minutes EARLY for the event, get your name tag and Match Sheet scorecard.
  5. You’ll meet 6 to 12 (and sometimes more) other single professionals in less than 2 hours in a series of 6-minute “Pre-Dates. We facilitate the whole thing so you are guaranteed to meet everyone there in a safe and fun way. To maximize your experience, we usually hold events in private or semi-private areas at an upscale venue. Many events include free appetizers and/or drink specials.
  6. On your Match Sheet, you decide who you’d like to know better and they do the same. At the end of the event, you enter your Match Sheet selections on our Web site at
  7. Your initial party results are received within 24 hours! Pre-Dating then emails each guest a list of participants who would like to hear from them again! Odds are you’ll have one or more matches (more than two-thirds of Pre-Daters match at least one person).
  8. After that, it’s up to you! Since you’ve had a Pre-Date, your chances of making a more lasting connection are vastly increased.
