How should I dress for speed dating?3707772476_7e20b570fd_z

Wear what you feel comfortable in. Many people will be coming straight from work so suits are fine. But don’t forget that in speed dating first impressions count. Girls, you always come well-presented. Guys, dress pants, collared shirt and clean dress shoes would be next best after a suit.

What type of people can I expect to meet?

Most Speed Daters tend to be friendly, honest, sincere people. Just think, everybody in that room is there for the same reason: they are going out of their way to meet and talk to new people in this way. We therefore, tend to attract a people who are intelligent, adventurous, don’t like to settle and tend to set the trend rather than follow it.

Many of our participants are doctors, lawyers, business owners, teachers, IT workers, accountants, nurses, office workers etc. Typically people who feel they don’t have a lot of time on their hands to meet people through more traditional ways. People who are often tired of the clubbing and bar scene.

Can I sign up with a friend?

People often feel more comfortable going along with someone they know so this is a great idea.

However, each person needs to register separately using their own email address, so that matches made from the event can be emailed to them directly and confidentially.

What happens after I register?

Once you fill in your details you will receive emails from us in regards to suitable upcoming events.

How does the Matching process work?

We take all the scorecards after the event to calculate all the matches. Your matches will be sent out to you via email within 24hrs of the event finishing.

What forms of payment do you accept?

We take credit card via paypal and direct deposit to our bank account. If you do pay via direct deposit please remember to add your order id as reference so we can track it.

I didn’t get an email with my matches – why not?

Usually this means that the email went into your spam file. Please add derek@aussiespeeddate.com.au to your list of safe senders, to make sure you receive all emails about your events.3194149_m (2)

What if I have to cancel?

Because of the nature of speed dating events, we must balance the numbers of men and women so that everyone who has paid to attend will be getting value for their money. Therefore it is essential for us to have a clear cancellation policy to discourage last second no-shows, and to ensure that each speed dating event is a success. Please review our terms before registering for an event.

What payment methods do you accept?

We accept most major credit cards via PayPal (you are taken to their form after registering online for an event).

We also accept Direct Bank Deposit.

We do not accept money orders or personal checks.

Can I just pay at the door?

In order to make our speed dating events successful for the participants we need to ensure a proper balance of men and women. Having the option to pay at the door will mean that these participants have no financial commitment and many will feel that they aren’t required to attend and rather than let us know they simply don’t show up. Although we can deal with small gender imbalances quite easily, not having adequate numbers is simply unfair to our customers.

This does not mean that we won’t accept payment at the door, in fact if we have room our hosts will gladly accommodate you, but we can not guarantee you a spot unless you register on our site using either your credit card or PayPal.

Registering online is safe and secure, so don’t pass up a chance to meet someone great, register today.

What is your Refund Policy?

We do NOT offer refunds. If last minute cancellations or weather cause us to reschedule an event, you will receive a credit to use for the rescheduled date or you will have the option of applying your credit to a different event of your choice. Please review our terms.

I am not within the recommended age range. Can I attend?

We want all participants to be comfortable with the interest and age group of attendees they are speed dating. Please choose an event that is within the recommended interest group and age range that you wish to date and in which you personally fit.
