Our events offer a fresh alternative to speed dating and matchmaking in Calgary. We don't find anything romantic about whistles, name-tags or over-the-top party trimmings typically found at singles events so we have done away with them. Creating an atmosphere that is at once casual and comfortable. It's what we call cheeky-chic! For those that prefer the same simplified experience in matchmaking we offer our 'Date Nights' free of contracts or commitments. It's as simple as selecting your package, telling us your preferences and allowing us to arrange the evening. Consider us your blind date specialists!
Tired of the smoke-filled bar scene and losing faith in chance as a source of romantic opportunity, singles have been looking to improve their odds in a world where meeting Mr.
Right seems increasingly difficult. With little time in their busy lives to seek out romance, they have become averse to the blind date and the trite pick-up line. Would I like to have 10 six-minute dates in one evening?

Yes, I thought, I would. It seemed that some savvy local entrepreneurs had noted the feelings of disenchantment among their single peers and heard the knock of opportunity on the doors of their centrally located studio apartments. They answered with speed dating. Speed dating has a variety of forms, but the basic elements are consistent. At the end of the night, each person discreetly selects whom he or she would like a chance to speak with again by filling out a match form.
A matchmaking event that takes care of the hard work but leaves a do-it-yourself element. I deliberated for a night about whether to sign up, and placed a call the next day, securing a spot at an event about two weeks away. A short search revealed rival services offering up to 25 dates of as little as three minutes each, but that seemed too speedy. As it was, I would be condensing a typical year of bars, chance meetings at the grocery store and interventions by well-intentioned friends into less than two hours of a single evening, with much of the uncertainty avoided.
When my evening of hyper- romance finally arrived, I was keen to test the waters of this new environment, if somewhat daunted by the scope of it.
Looking around the room I felt positive about the event and attendees. Score one for first impressions. My dates and I got along quite well. What was my favourite sport to watch? Well, I like to play sports, but I watch maybe one game a year on TV, so I guess whichever sport that was is my favorite.
I saw more potential with Sylvia on date two. She was up on current events, read widely and had an interesting career and a great smile. The bell rang telling us to move on to our next date all too quickly. I put a check on my card. Surely six minutes had elapsed. Where was that bell? Date four, Angela, was quite attractive, but her interests, interestingly, were non-existent.
Maybe she was just a bit shy. I checked her name on my card, thinking we might fare better in a different environment.
The only true flash of social ineptitude, other than my own, came during my last date. Apparently Josie lacked that filter from brain to mouth that makes conversation graceful. What did she study? Only daters that garner matches are notified approx.
Chat up your prospective 'Date-Mates' minutes at a time. 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. So Little time; So much to say. Just have fun and go with it! Can I return for free if I don't get a match at an event?
Unlike other speed dating companies that offer free spots to those that don't receive matches, we take a different approach to returning guests.
Those that receive matches, are quite popular and absolutely lovely - are often invited back with discounts or with our compliments. This ensures a fabulous pool of daters that others want to meet.
Is Food included with my SpeedCalgary Dating ticket price? From time to time venues may provide light nibbles for the guests. This is at the venue's discretion. How long does a SpeedCalgary Dating event last? The length of an event is based on the number of daters in attendance. Generally, our events last about 2 hours including intermission.
What Happens when the Event is over? Most Daters say this is when the fun really starts! Feel free to stay and mingle for as long as you want. Bring your friends, have some fun! Our hosts will gladly accommodate seating for all ticketed members of your party. If you would like to be seated together please let us know. SpeedCalgary Dating events vary in size, anywhere from 16 - 30 singles register for any given event. Can I pay without doing it through the Internet?
We only accept payment via our secure and encrypted checkout systems. What Should I Wear? Well the British always like to dress it up. However, dress how you feel.
I Am Older or Younger than your age ranges — may I still attend? Of course you may. Our age ranges are merely suggestions. We offer many age range categories. Please feel free to select the age range most comfortable for you. Will I be photographed or filmed? You will absolutely not be photographed or filmed without your prior consent. While we and our daters are often called upon for special filmed events, they are scheduled as private events and are by invitation only.
What if I don't have the ability to act like a lady or gentleman? Oh dear - how unfortunate. We do have a zero tolerance for any rudeness - of any sort. We attract such great daters but find - as in life - not every dater is ideal. Our daters are also our product and we go to great lengths to ensure everyone meets lovely daters. We want the right daters not just any daters. Behavior short of lovely will result in a dater being banned from the company.
This may upset some but we feel our daters as a whole appreciate the extra effort and we hope you do too. Can you tell me more about your promotion for Cancer Awareness? Our 'Night For Suzanne' is a great way to give back and have fun while doing it! Donate to the Joan Gaeta Foundation or any Cancer charity of your choice in the amount of your purchase - let us know you did - and we'll add you to the guest list of your desired event.

For each Date-Night, you will meet a different partner, chosen for you based on your mutual aspirations, expectations and likes. Here for you and your goals while adding a dash of UK sense and sensibility. Prior to your arranged date, matched daters are only given each others first names.
Personal information such as e-mail, address or phone numbers are never exchanged by us and we urge our daters to use the same prudence. Do you do an employment, credit or financial verification? Our primary concern is the safety of our guests.
Six minute speed dating calgary
We do not solicit singles from locales such as bars, nightclubs or gyms. Our clients are as ambitious as they are sophisticated, either atop of, or on the ladder to success.
Prejudging a dater today, we feel, does an injustice to their accomplishments tomorrow. Are events included in my Matchmaking Package? How can you charge so much less than the competition? We don't have to spend money recruiting daters. We are sought after for who we are and the level of dater we attract, affording us the luxury of daters finding us, rather than the expense of having to find daters.

With prior notice, we will work with you on rescheduling your date and understand sometimes things happen that are beyond your control and we ask that daters be considerate of each others schedule changes.
