What a great way to start off the New Year! The last speed dating event I helped to host had an 84% match rate, which means that 84% of the participants had at least one double (two-way) match. Come on out and be part of the fun--and the success! --Michael P.
You've heard about speed dating, you've seen it on TV and in the movies, and you've been wanting to try it...
On Monday, Jan. 7, they're having a speed dating event at 7:00pm for ages 36-49, in Chapel Hill, just off Hwy. 15-501, a few miles from I-40 at the beautiful Shula's Grill in the Sheraton Chapel Hill Hotel.
Important: You have to preregister on the speed dating company's website in order to participate in this event! They need to balance the genders to ensure the event works properly.
I was able to get our group a $7 discount: Just use the promotional code LTBSPD7 when you preregister.
So your net cost is only $22. That's an amazing deal, because some other local speed dating companies are charging $30, $35, or more.
Sure, you can go to other local singles events for free, but how many people do you really meet? With speed dating, you get to have a one-on-one conversation with 10-12 people or more. No loud music, no meat market atmosphere, no having to get up the courage to approach someone. And best of all, speed dating is FUN!
Some folks have asked me if it's only members of this Meetup group who will be participating in the event. The answer is no: These events are marketed in various ways: For one thing, the speed dating company has its own Raleigh-Durham database with over 1,000 people on it. Plus, I usually advertise the events on a few different Meetup groups.
Ready, set, let's Speed Date!
