All of the testimonials below are from real Calgarians. They have all been to a Calgary Speed Dating event.
I have been meaning to email you. I attended your event on Feb 11th and met R. It was the first time speed dating for both of us. We went on our first date on Valentine's Day. We are now in a relationship and heading on a trip together to Europe in May! I couldn't have chosen a better match. Thanks so much for bringing us together and being a part of our story. We definitely recommend your events to anyone hoping to meet someone special.

A year ago my boyfriend and I met at one of your events in the 24-31 age bracket, it was both our first time attending and hopefully the last. I hope my testimony will give anybody in my age bracket speed dating something to consider as an alternative to social/online dating sites. And to keep an open mind. To be honest, I think I would have had a connection talking to my boyfriend anywhere, but it was because of your event that we crossed paths. Thanks again!

Hello Cathy. I just wanted to say that I attended one of your functions way back in April . I am pleasantly surprised and thrilled to tell you that I met someone that evening that has made a huge impact on my life and I look forward to spending my future with. I don't believe in love at first sight or think speed dating was what I was looking for. I decided to sign up for the evening of speed dating with a open mind. To be completely honest it was my best friend that holds some credit. She had recently lost her sole mate in a unfortunate death. She had asked me to support her by attending. I was not looking for anything and actually she chickened out and didn't even show up. The gentleman, Neil, took a job up north shortly after the event but somehow we had an amazing connection from the start and it developed into a romance that words can't explain. I am moving up there to be with him permanently and am excited to start a life with. I just wanted to send you an e-mail because I'm sure that this doesn't happen frequently and this story can be inspiring to others.
Just wanted to say that I had a great time at speed dating the other night. Even though I didn't meet anyone I was romantically interested in, I will definitely be back. It was so much fun!
I just wanted to send an update and say thank you. I attended a speed dating event in Nov. 2011 and I'm happy to say that we are getting married this Nov. 2013! Thanks so much!
It's been nearly 6 and 1/2 years that Catherine and I met at CalgarySpeedDating.com and have never looked back. Thank you for running a quality service that allowed this introvert guy to meet a great extrovert girl!
I think you can safely take me off your mailing list. I have been in a common-law relationship with my spouse for over seven years now, and we did meet at one of your events!
I would like to compliment you for the work you do - bringing people together. Please keep me on your email list. I enjoy the reminder of your events as it encourages me to suggest to people I meet or know to try Calgary Speed Dating. Yes there is a very happy couple in the city as a result of meeting at CSD! Thank you. : )
I had a great time, thank you. I will totally try this again!
Thanks Cathy. You guys put on a great event.
This is sort of a bad news, good news message. The bad news is that I will not be attending any more speed dating events. However, the good news is that at your last event, I developed a very meaningful relationship with one of the ladies that watteded that evening. So, now I am one of your successful statistics. Thank you!
The one event I took in was amazing and I recommend your service to many who I meet. Even though i did not connect thru your service, it was helpful to grow my self-esteem and begin talking with great women.
I really enjoyed the event on Friday, and I plan to get into contact with my matches this week and well see where they head. Thanks again
Just letting you know that my match and I are dating. Things are going very well, he could be the one, if not he's pretty damn close and we are going to have fun finding out! Thanks for the evening, it was great.
Thank you again for the excellent venue, and the wonderful service that you provide to help singles pear up.
I had a great time. I'd never been before, and I totally enjoyed talking with all the men that were there. I don't know how often you have that same age group, but I will keep watching. Thanks again!
I would like to compliment you on doing a great job on your Speed Dating events, they are a lot of FUN! Everyone that I talked to were enjoying themselves and will certainly pass your events on to their friends.
The event went great.
Thank you for a very interesting and entertaining evening last evening.
Last night was fun.
Thanks Cathy for a fun evening, although it was hectic. I guess that's why they call it speed dating. :-) Ha......because of the meeting I had in the break, I barely had time to munch on your snacks....they looked delicious.
I had a very enjoyable evening and won't be afraid to try again when your "Date Calendar" and mine are able to coincide with some free time.
Thank you. I had a great time.
How wonderful!! I really had my fingers crossed for a match with [match name]. Yea!! So thank you so much, the whole evening was a real fun experience and now I have done it once, it just seems the 'normal' way to make friends at this time of life. With the ladies too - but not romantically of course!! So YES, now the rest is up to me!! And should things turn out well I will be sure to keep you up to date. Once more, many thanks.
