How does Speed Dating work?
Enter WIL JENNY'S front door, a greeter will guide you to a private area reserved just for the speed dating event. After checking in with the event organizer, you will be given a numbered name tag, score sheet, pen, and starting seat assignment. 15 single men and 15 single women will be seated at 15 separate numbered tables. At 7:00 the dates begin, but they happen fairly quickly. You will have just 5 minutes to talk with your first "date". After 5 minutes of conversation with the first date a signal to the group will cause the men to rotate to the next table and meet with their next female "date". Just have a short casual conversation and you should know right away if there is any chemistry. As you rotate through dates #1 through #15 you will privately circle “yes” or “no” next to their name and number on your private score sheet. At the end of the night you will turn in your score sheet with your choices to the event host, as will all the men and women. The next day you will receive an e-mail from the event organizer with the names and emails of any matches that also marked "yes" next to your name and number on their score sheet. Then it is up to you to contact your matches with a friendly hello through e-mail and set up a second date. They will be looking forward to hearing from you because not only did you pick them, they picked you!
Basically, after meeting up to 15 singles, you get to choose the one or one's you'd like to meet again on a scoresheet. Pick as many as you like, but the next day you will only receive the email addresses of those that you picked that picked you as well. 78% of the attendees so far have made one or more mutual matches during an event!
All sorts of single people, but mostly single professionals who are seriously looking for a new companion with similar interests. Singles similar in age to you. Single men and women who are frustrated with the aggravations of online dating. Lots of nice looking people usually exceeding people's expectations. Date-ready people wanting to prescreen potential second dates. Singles that were disappointed with free events, meet and greets, or RSVP pay at the door events with 75% no show rate. SpeedDateKC prepay speed date events guarantee high attendance rates, nearly 100%!
How to dress, nervousness, no pressure or expectations
Keep in mind making a good first impression is important, but don't over or under do it. Dress as if going on a date at a nice restaurant. Clean and crisp is suggested. Be sure to wear a smile!
Everyone is a little nervous beforehand and that is natural. After the first rotation everyone finally relaxes and realizes how much fun the event is and that there is no pressure. You don't have to ask anyone out for a second date or turn anyone down for a date, the score sheets will do all the work for you! The next day you will receive your mutual match's email contact information.
Attend alone or with a friend, it doesn't matter. Most of the attendees attend on their own and some attend with a same gender friend or opposite gender friend. Rotations every 5 minutes guarantees everyone will meet everyone individually.
"I met a kind and wonderful man and couldn't have asked for more. Still dating!" -December '12
"I moved here because of my job from another state, meeting potential dates was hard for me,
but speed dating put me face to face with lots of interesting men."
"A great way just to meet people who want to be friends or to hang out with."
"Thanks for doing this! Keep doing these events!" -attendees after 11 events in October, November, December, January and February.
"Great event, fun classy organization! Thank you!" -Feb '13
"No risk, I felt at ease knowing that everyone's choices on the score sheets were private." Feb '13

Previous/Future SpeedDateKC.com events
City wide events!
13 speed dating events so far in Oct, Nov, Dec, Jan, Feb. and March and growing!
October events were at Johnny's Tavern 119th St. in Overland Park
November events were at RC's Restaurant and Lounge in South KC
December events were at John's Big Deck Sports Bar Downtown
January events were in Brookside at Blue Grotto and SOLD OUT.
February events were in South KC at Murray's and SOLD OUT.
March events are at Californos in Westport and SOLD OUT.
The idea is to move these events around Kansas City and get as many new singles excited about this face to face concept as possible.
Not only will venues change, but also age ranges of events will change from month to month to help ensure you do not meet the same people at back to back events.
