For all the general questions you wanted to know about Speed Dating....
Are there always equal numbers of men and women?
We take alot of time and effort to check and re-check that we do have even numbers to our Sydney Speed Dating Events. If you cannot make it to the event, PLEASE, PLEASE let us know as soon as possible. Just think how much you wouldn't like it if you attended a speed date session and other people didn't bother to turn up.... How many people will I meet?
While we guarantee a minimum of 15 people you will meet on the night, 95% of our events usually consist of 15-17 guys and 15-17 girls.
What time does the event start and finish?
Our events usually start around 7:30 and finish up approx at 10:30.
What happens after I register my details?
We sent out group invitations via email every Sunday or Monday letting you know of appropriate upcoming events. We have events for ages 42+ every 4 months, so if you are in this age group you may not hear from us for a while.
I am keen on attending an event but nervous about going by myself...
This would have to be the most common concern, especially with the girls. Yes it can be a bit stressful thinking about. Years ago I attended a speed date overseas and was quite nervous so I know exactly how you feel. The worst thing is actually thinking about: the mind tends to wonder with all the negative and worse case scenarios. Once you arrive at the venue and look around to see just how "normal" all the other speed daters are, the nerves will settle. As soon as the speed dating begins all the fears and worry quickly disappear. 10:30 comes around alot quicker than you had expected and you wonder why you were ever worried in the first place!!
What sort of people will I meet?
Average, normal people just like me and you. Most of our participants are busy professional people who value their spare time and can see all the benefits Speed Dating has to offer. Accountants, teachers, IT workers tend to be our most common professions. We've had numerous doctors and lawyers come through aswell.
How long will it take before I get my matches?
You will receive your matches within 24 hours of the event finishing.
What shall I wear?
Dress is of a high standard at our Sydney Speed Dating Events. Jeans, t-shirt and skate shoes are probably not the ideal solution. Remember first impressions count, go to that extra effort. There will be more than a few guys who come straight from work in a suit.
What forms of payment do you accept?
We accept either direct deposit or credit card. All payments must be made before the event, please do not ask if you can pay on the night. We proudly use Paymate for all our credit card transactions.
We are no longer running at EQ anymore.
