Hello everyone! I am hosting the first Speed Dating event of the New Year with my favorite group. I suggest reading through event details before purchasing a ticket. If you have never tried speed dating before I really recommend it! Not only do you meet tons of singles but professionally network and make new friends!
Prepay for tickets here:
What: Speed Dating 40s 50s
When: Jan 12th, 2017 (new year, new you!)
Time: 7pm check in, 7:30pm-9:30pm speed dating, 9:30pm-10:30pm after event mixer (after event mixer is 100% optional. Leave anytime you want, just turn in your speed date book before you go)
Where: Waterhouse, 3407 N Paulina, Chicago
How it works: When you arrive you will check in with Devon and get a name tag and a speed date book
** You will fill out your information in your speed date book before the event and mix and mingle with other guests
** At 7:30pm Devon will seat you 2 to a table (male on one side and females on the other). Males will rotate every 5-6 minutes to their next date (thats right ladies, you get to stay seated)
** You will write down the name of the person you are on a date with and circle yes or no for each person (please don't forget to do this!! You wouldn't believe how many blank books I get!! I can't read minds, you need to tell me who you like!)
** After you have gone on your last mini date you will turn in your COMPLETED speed date book to the host. She will go through them the next day and email you the matches (2 people who circle yes for each other will receive each others contact info)
*** Some people don't understand how matches work, so let me explain in detail here. Say Amy and Mike go on a date and they both circle yes for each other, Amy will receives Mikes contact info and Mike will receive Amy's. On Amy's next date will Todd she circles yes for him and he circles no. Neither of them will get the contact info. 2 people both need to circle yes for contact information to be exchanged. It seems obvious but i get questions about this all the time.
Early Bird (first 10 people who sign up) $10
Prepay on eventbrite: $15
@ Door: $20 (not all door sales are accepted. It depends on the amount of men or women we have at each event. Only prepaid tickets will be guaranteed a spot. IF we have extra spots we will expect walk ins (the more the better!) but only if we have the room. If I have 5 girls don't show at 8 guys show up at the door my numbers would be too uneven..... email me if this doesn't make sense and I can explain over the phone.
****** IMPORTANT NOTE!! IF YOU ARE MALE BUY A MALE TICKET!! IF YOU ARE FEMALE, BUY A FEMALE TICKET!! THIS HELPS ME CONTROL THE NUMBERS AND MAKES SURE THE EVENT HAS EVEN MALE AND FEMALES!

If you haven't tried Speed Dating before I highly suggest you try at least one. If you don't have a great time I will either refund your money or give you a free event. I recruit singles from not only meetup but Mix and Mingle Chicago, Events and Adventures, Eventbrite, Chicago Singles, and more! Doing this we aways get a wide variety of singles living in or around Chicago. And once again if you don't have a good time your event is free!
