Let’s have a fun night out and try Speed Dating. They offer our Meetup Group a $5 discount if we prepay at www.Pre-Dating.com/DFW and use the code PDPSMU.
Speed Dating 411:
Are you single, hoping to meet someone special, but would rather skip the whole bar routine? Speed dating may be an option. Here's how it works: Interested men and women gather at a predetermined spot. While the women sit at individual tables, the men rotate in 6 minute intervals until they have met and talked to every woman in the room. At the end of the evening, you let the event organizer know which people you are interested in seeing again. You receive an email within 48 hours with your matches. What you decide to do next is up to you!
Speed Date Prep:
Everybody prepares for dates in different ways, but it is good to have at least some idea of your dating preferences prior to an event. Develop an idea of your likes and dislikes. It may help to make a list -- write down any potential "deal breakers" -- traits or habits that you would never want to find in a person you date. Come up with questions on matters that are important to you. Make a list of things you like to do in your free time or things that you would like to try or experience. Remember, it never hurts to be a little adventurous and you are looking for a person to possibly share in these adventures.
If I Meet Someone I Really Like, What Happens Next?
You've completed your first speed dating experience; what happens next? You should get your results within 48 hours. Then you'll be staring at email addresses and trying to figure out your next step. Suggest meeting for a drink or a casual event that will take some of the pressure off of you both. If you both went to the speed dating event with friends, suggest a non-speed dating reunion at a local bar where you can hang out and laugh over your shared experience.
So now that you understand Speed Dating and are prepared, have you registered? Your Meetup RSVP does not reserve your place in the event. These events are listed in multiple postings and they tend to fill up fast with more than just Meetup folks. You need to register online now before the event is full at www.Pre-Dating.com/DFW. Don’t forget the $5 discount code PDPSMU.
See you there!
