Speed dating is one of the easiest, natural, and most enjoyable ways to meet a lot of other singles in a short space of time. Amourlife runs events at restaurants, and bars, carefully selected to provide a fun, comfortable, and relaxed environment.
Generally events run for around 2 hours and comprise of 12, 6 minute speed dates. On arrival you will be greeted by your friendly host, who will provide you with a name tag, matching card, and a pen.
Your matching card specifies the information you would like share with your matches, and contains a tick box for each of the other attendees you would like to meet again.
When everyone has arrived the host will introduce themselves and explain how the night will run. Then the fun begins.
If you’ve never been to a speed dating event before, it’s actually pretty similar to a game of musical chairs. Each Male and Female is assigned a badge number from 1 to 12, which corresponds to a starting table number.
Everyone sits and chats at their designated table (one male and one female per table) for 6 minutes, at which time your host will ring a bell signalling that it’s time for each male to move one table to the right.
If you would like to meet again for a date, you tick yes on the matching card alongside your potential partners name. If two people tick yes to each other, it’s a match.
At the end of the night your matching card is returned to the host who will send you an email the next day containing a list of your matches.
You can then contact your matches knowing that you have a genuine mutual interest in each other.
