At Calgary Speed Dating, we get together an average of 12 men and 12 women for fun, 7-minute dates - you decide if there's a match! Each participant has a dating card. You mark down who you'd like to see and everyone else does the same. If you say "yes" to the same people who say "yes" to you, it's a match and you get each other's contact information. People enjoy speed dating and often return to another event but we keep track of each event you come to so that you don't meet all the same people again! What would be the use of that?
We take the awkwardness out wanting or not wanting to see someone again. We're your 'middle-man'. It's a great way to meet lots of singles without wasting hours on the internet, emailing, texting and phoning only to find the chemistry just isn't there in-person.

This is a quote from Wikipedia that pretty much sums up speed dating. "Some feel that speed dating has some obvious advantages over most other venues for meeting people, such as bars, discotheques, etc. in that everybody is purportedly there to meet someone, they are grouped into compatible age ranges, it is time-efficient, and the structured interaction eliminates the need to introduce oneself. Unlike many bars, a speed dating event will, by necessity, be quiet enough for people to talk comfortably. Speed dating is for singles."
There is a company from the US calling themselves by my corporate name, Calgary Speed Dating. They are selling tickets in US dollars on Eventbrite. That is not my company. So, if you choose to go for the "less is more" approach that they advertise, don't go expecting to get the same quality service you will get here and please don't let them drive you away from speed dating altogether.
