WE TAKE THE STRESS OUT OF DATING
So, how does it really work?
Well, it's quite simple, at Go Date, we believe flirtation is best done in person, preferably over a glass of wine (or two). You will be within a 'group' of equal number of Women and Men, each armed with a name-tag and a piece of paper. One of our lovely hosts will seat you at a table for two where you will date the person across from you for 5 minutes. We’ve found that 5 minutes is just long enough to find out if you'd like to see someone again but not too long if you don’t. You meet someone, you talk for 5 minutes and afterward you circle 'yes' if you liked the person or 'no' if you didn't. If you both circle a 'yes', you get each others contact information (email address, first name) in an email the next day. During the event the ladies remain seated and the men rotate from table to table every 5 minutes. It is exciting at the event too; you get to make snap judgments on people (we're humans, we all love to judge and you know it) and you also get to meet a ton of interesting people you never would otherwise. The speed dating event is over when you’ve met everybody, but this is often when the fun really starts. Most guests stick around to enjoy the music, have a drink and get to know the people they liked a little better.
So, you maybe asking 'what makes us differ from on-line dating'
when you date on-line you pre-screen and scrutinize over little things ...'this persons profile looks awesome but oh-no, they watch way too much TV!.. it can never work... Speed-Dating however provides opportunities to meet people who are also looking for a date but instead of learning everything about them upfront, you have a conversation with them and see if you get along. In this manner, you are not brushing anyone off for an interest they have that probably wouldn't even affect your relationship with them. Instead, you're getting a glimpse at whether or not you might actually enjoy their company. It's a win-win scenario and the most important thing to remember is not to take it too seriously. It's only an hour of your life and you know you've spent more time just 'searching' for an eligible candidate to date.
Spend your time 'enjoying' talking to new and interesting people rather than wondering whether or not each person you meet is your soul mate. Contrary to what you believe, you cannot tell that from 5 minutes and if it doesn't work out? No big deal; those were 10 people, try again with another 10 and who knows what will happen. We do know for certain, dating is a numbers game and playing the numbers in your favor does work!
