Do you spend countless hours swiping on dating apps? Well, put your phone down and meet the fun and fabulous Cupid Speed Dating crew - they're only the coolest thing since sliced bread!
No longer do you have to go on multiple agonising blind dates, only to find out your 'perfect match' doesn't quite match up in real life. Instead, you can enjoy a relaxed, social speed dating event hosted by Cupid Speed Dating and meet like-minded people you actually click with.
After-all, they say we make up our mind about a person within seconds of meeting them - so why not actually meet fellow singles in a casual setting and see how you respond to their body language and gestures.
If you're shy or nervous, you needn't be - the friendly Cupid Speed Dating team will be on hand to keep the atmosphere light and happening.
All you need to do is be yourself and you might just meet Mr. or Ms. Right!
Here's how it works:
When you enter the venue you will be directed to register your attendance. From here you will be given a scorecard for your dates, name tag, and a pen. After everyone is registered, a Speed Dating Host will give a speech explaining how the scorecards work, table arrangements and answer any final questions. You will then be directed to your table.
Your first date will start. After 4 and a half minutes a bell will ring. This signifies that the date will be finishing in 30 seconds and it's time to start wrapping up the conversation. At the 5 minute mark, the bell will ring louder. The date is now over. The gentleman will move to the next table. There will be several seconds to mark your scorecard and then your next date will begin. This process will repeat until break time or the end of the event. At the end of the event, a Speed Dating Host will ensure your scorecard is correctly filled out and collect it from you.
A Speed Dating host will continually observe to ensure proper table rotations and provide any assistance you may need. There will be two breaks during the night with shared plates served and a complimentary drink.
Each event is capped at 20 guys and 20 girls.
The next day, you will receive a list of matches and contact details - then it is up to you to follow up!
