We say yes to a very few - limiting it to locales that are at once casually hip and romantically inspiring. As a reporter for LA Talk said, “ I walked through the venue without even noticing the tables of daters; Speed LA events are so chic and low key you might just walk right by.” We couldn’t have said it better ourselves. Much like a private club, not every dater is for us.
We are the only organization to routinely screen daters we feel may not be a good fit for our clients.
We do question businesses that promote their events through "Meet-Up" groups - only to redirect you to their own website. This may cause an event to start late but we feel a perfect opportunity to chat up the hosts, have a lovely refreshment and settle in. You checked each other on your scorecards and your email address will be exchanged with this person 24 hours after the event.
If we don't think a dater is someone that fellow daters would get on with - we'll respectfully decline service and reserve the right to do so. We think 'Meet-Up' is a lovely free service that gives those of similar interests the opportunity to connect. Also, it is a good idea to keep checking back on our website as sometimes reservations become available at the last minute. Please try to avoid doing anything unsafe in your attempt to arrive to the event on time - we do like to wait for all participants to arrive.
Chat up your prospective 'Date-Mates' 6-7 minutes at a time. In today’s world we tend to know in a matter of minutes if we ‘click’ with someone.
Sometimes, for our larger events, this may be shortened by 1 or 2 minutes to accommodate all of the mini-dates in a timely fashion. You can also chat further with your prospective ‘Date-Mate’ at intermission or mingle after the event. How will I know I have any Speed LA ‘Date Mates’ and how do I contact my Speed LA ‘date-mate’?
Simply jot down your potential 'Date-Mates' at the bottom of your Scorecard and we'll take care of the rest.
For those who garner matches, you will be notified via e-mail within 24 hours of the event ending of your 'Date-Mate' results.
