Has this happened to you?

* You walk out of an interview thinking, "Yes! Nailed it!" only to hear you didn't get the job.
* Someone tells you they've had a crush on you forever and you had no idea.
* You float home from a first date thinking you met someone with potential, then get the text/email from them saying they didn't think you were a good fit.

Want to know why? Well, we can't guarantee this event will have all the answers, but you'll get enough feedback to get a reasonably good idea what kind of first impression you make and why people are drawn to/seem to avoid you. Think of this party as one part happy hour and one part social experiment.

Here's how it will work:

You'll check-in and enjoy some appetizers, be assigned a number, and mingle.

When everyone has arrived, there will be an ice-breaker that lasts 15-20 minutes. This will give people time to interact with other guests so they can get a better-formed impression.

Once the icebreaker is over, you'll be seated. Your host will distribute sheets for you to fill out. On the sheets will be prompts that you will answer Yes or No. (i.e. On a scale of 1-10, how easy was it to make conversation with this person and why?)

Once the five minutes are up, your partner will move to another table. For each five minute round, one set of numbers will move, the other set will stay seated. That will be when they fill out there sheets.You won't be asked to fill out sheets while in the presence of the person you're assessing.

You will never be asked to include your name on the sheet of the person you are assessing. The assessment will be anonymous.

You will have five minutes to fill out sheets. Host will come around before the start of each new session and collect the completed sheets. For each attendee, an envelope will be created in which all of their assessments will be kept.

When the event is over - and not before then - each person may collect their envelope of assessment sheets as they are leaving. If you'd prefer to have us email you screenshots of all your sheets, we can do that as well.

We ask that you DO NOT open your envelopes until you leave.

IMPORTANT:

You will not have more than 5 one-on-one sessions.

Hosts will review all sheets before putting them in a guest's envelope. If there is anything we deem inappropriate or rude, the sheet will be ripped up. There will be no questions or prompts that encourage comments about physical appearance.

This is not specifically a dating event, though we encourage people to mix and mingle and exchange contact info if they wish.

FAQ:

Can I come alone? Yes about 75% of those attending will be coming solo. But you can also invite friends to join you. Everyone must have a ticket to enter.

Is this age specific? All ages welcome (most of the crowd is 20s, 30s & 40)

Is there a dress code? No specific dress code. We just suggest "neat casual".

How many will be attending? We expect somewhere betwen 50 and 75 people to attend.
