*SOLD OUT* Special Event 'Nerd Speed Dating' *Redmond* - All Singles ages 21-36

4/17/14: This event has SOLD OUT   Thank you so much! Will plan to hold another in the Fall.

**Special Event** - Speed Dating Event for 'Nerds'

**Special note** As of 3/14 I have run out of seats for men until further notice. Awaiting more women to signup at which point I will re-open to men again**  Men can join the waitlist at www.predating.com/sea

Come early and check out the board games and meet others who share your interests and obsessions.

No cello required!

Special Nerds Collide rate of $24 (regular $35) with advance registration at www.predating.com/sea using promo code SEANERD - (please RSVP on meetup and pay on the predating site to guarantee your spot.) 

**Early registration is highly recommended as it is likely we will fill up the space quickly.**

You'll meet up to a dozen other single geeks, nerds, and goofballs face-to-face in your age and interest group through a series of six minute 'mini-dates' in Redmond at Redmond Town Center. We facilitate the whole thing so there's no awkwardness, no pressure, no embarrassment and no games... just great fun! After the event, I will email each guest a list of participants who would like to hear from them again - so that you can set up future dates!

Please RSVP early so that I can maintain an even gender balance. Unlike other speed dating operations, I put a lot of effort into keeping the genders as balanced as possible - and attracting good quality folks to attend. Outside of the admission fee, there will be no other 'upselling' or 'hard sells' at my events for memberships or consultations, etc. I just want to help people make quality connections!

I advertise in a lot of different places - so rest assured, there will be more people at the event than in the meetup RSVP! My events average 18-24 singles per gathering.

If you have any questions, just ask!

    The venue was way too tiny and crowded for this event. The participants were all great!

    Apparently, signing up for this 2 months ago didn't mean anything :(

    Why is this being do in the same weekend as NorwesCon? I doubt I will be the only one fron this nerd focused group to be spending the entire weekend at the local science fiction and fantasy convention.

    any chance the mens waiting list fill open again?

    Once I have hit a higher # of females I'll email all of my waitlist guys and it will be first come first served at that point. Typically I will know the weekend before the event how it is shaping up.

      Lastly, one final idea - if you are a guy and you REALLY want to attend, have a female friend signup/pay. Once they have done so, email me and I will work to add you in. Since the #'s will be going up by 1m/1f it will be totally okay all around.

      Sorry one last idea - If you are a guy and you still really want to get in but don't have a female friend - I am holding a large scale singles party the previous weekend on Capitol Hill - check out www.lockandkeyevents.com­/sea party on 4/12 and you can use the promo code SEANERD to get the special rate there as well. Thanks!

    I am monitoring the signups from men and women pretty closely to make sure the #'s are about even. Right now I have a few women signed up (Thanks!) but am looking for a few more to signup before I can take waitlist guys.

    If you are a male nerd and you have not yet signed up/paid for this event (and are looking to get on the waitlist) I will be coordinating my waitlist on www.predating.com/sea I can't do the waitlist easily thru meetup. There is a way to join waitlist there.

      Not at this time. I'll re-post once it reopens then it will be first come first served

    Also - there is a possibility Uncle's Games will stay open late for us to hold an Open Play for Board Games. Please reply in this post if that is of interest to you and I can facilitate.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
