~ FREE Speed Dating Event for 40 & Over ~

THANKS GUYS FOR STEPPING UP AND HELPING TO BALANCE OUT THE MEN AND WOMEN; WHICH IN TURN, WE WERE ABLE TO INCLUDE ALL OF THE WOMEN THAT WERE ON THE WAITING LIST.  WE NEED EVERYONE TO BE THERE ON TIME AS WE WILL BE STARTING PROMPTLY AT 6:30 WHICH WILL ALLOW TIME TO GET DRINKS AND GET SEATED.  WE WILL BE TAKING A BREAK FROM 7:15 - 7:30, AND THEN RESUME UNTIL 8:00 PM.  IF YOU DID NOT HAVE THE CHANCE TO MEET EVERYONE, THERE WILL BE MUSIC AND TIME TO MINGLE AFTERWARDS.

Join us for the East Bay Over 40's first Speed Dating Event.  We want to get an even balance of men and women, so if we get more women then men sign up, they will be put on a waiting list.

The way it works is a couple meets at a table for a few minutes, and then when time is up the men will rotate to the next table.  You only have a few minutes, so make sure you ask the questions, that are really important to you.  Everyone will be given a number, so you will be able to note who you found interesting, and they will do the same.  If there is a match, you will both be contacted through e-mail.

After the speed dating is over, stay and dance to some Top 40 hits; after all, you will have already met several dance partners.

If your plans change, please take a moment to change your RSVP.

Have fun and good luck!!!

    I'm so bummed that I had to miss this event. Thanks for organizing this. I've been to speed-dating events, they usually cost upwards of $25.00. You guys are generous to volunteer your time and energy to make this happen... Sounds like everyone had a great time!!

      I'm sorry, we aren't giving the moving sale until next weekend now but the meet up was full for women by the time I figured that out : (

    Thanks everyone who came to our first speed dating event. We know it was a little chaotic at times, but we took note and will do things differently next time. Hope everyone met some interesting people. Thanks to all of our helpers!!! The good news, is we went through the sheets and there were quite a few matches. You will be receiving an email soon, with that person's name and email address. But the really good news is one couple met before the speed dating started and left and went to dinner...very cool!!!!

  • Marc S.

    Never done anything like speed dating before this. It should be a blast. I see from the decription that the ladies sit while the guys rotate. Are there any other guidelines for what questions to ask and other ediqutte?
