What to expect at a Calgary Speed Dating Event ("Shuffle the Deck" events have a slightly different format.)

Upon arriving, you'll register - be sure you bring id with your birth date on it - pick up your dating card and the profiles of the singles you'll be meeting. You can order a beverage to drink and either mingle or read the profiles to familiarize yourself with the other participants before you meet them.

After a short welcome and explanation of how the dating cards work, the 7-minute dates commence. Choose to converse rather than interrogate. Conversation will put the other person at ease and those 7 minutes will fly by. 

Each person is assigned a table number. At the end of each 7 minutes, a bell rings and the men will move to the next highest table number. This is the time to secretly indicate on your dating card whether you'd like to see that person again. 

The break occurs around 8:30 and it will last 15-20 minutes. We supply the snacks! Then we resume until the end of the rounds. Events can end anywhere between 9:15 and 10:15, depending upon the size of the group.

Just before you go home, you'll hand in your dating card, but take the profile sheet to help remind you who everyone is the next day. 

Expect an email with your matches usually the same night but before 1 p.m. the next day for sure. Once you have your matches the rest is up to you!

    Speed Dating With a Twist! 

    This is a super-fun, laid-back way to meet a lot of singles in one evening. You'll play simple board/card games at each table for a specific time period, providing a great way to socialize and get to know others. There will be 4-6 players/table with as close to equal numbers of men and women as possible. We have a special Round Robin system, developed by MeetCute Events, that allows participants to meet all or most of the other people attending (depending on the total number). 

    After each rotation, you'll mark down the people you'd like to meet again. We’ll do the matches and mutual 'yeses', will receive each other's contact information by noon the following day. Max 42 people.

    Delicious pizza, chicken wings and veggies are included. Beverages (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) are available for purchase.

    You need to check in between 6:30 and 6:45. We start at 7:00.
