Reviews on speed dating
Appropriate for singles, the romantically attached, or those accidentally attached by Velcro, the events range from intimate happy hours and theme parties to teeming galas and tours.
Speed-dating sessions move at a brisk clip in DC's most buzz-worthy bars and restaurants, where professionals are sequestered into congruous categories according to age, religious inclination, and sneaker-brand preference.
Having read some reviews about Speeddater, it all made sense. went on a speedating event to find that they had only sold 4 female tickets and 10 male...(even thou they claim a 50/50 split).......told that i could get a free ticket for another event but will be charged £5 for the privalege.........absolute rubbish In just a few days I got like 50 emails and as many chat messages, obviously from scammers (unless 22 years old models are suddenly finding me attractive).
The event was less than average - 3 min 30 sec to get to know someone is not enough and we just exchanged boring information like job or such. I've been to a couple of the events and they have been fun.
I'd rate it a little above average but it did not really convince me.
The site seems to be ok but IMO nothing compares to Mingle2day or Chemistry.
Along with speed events, Professionals in the City also hosts outdoorsy outings, speed networking events, and a dating-centric lecture series to keep its members active, connected, and well-informed.For all I know half of the girls there were scammers too anyway. However the website is unusable as a dating site as it is full of scammers and webcam girls looking for business. They lie about what they do and tell you they will tick you yet you never hear of them again. The actual speeddating night was ok and to be expected, but when you get a match and you submit your ticks, you have to carry on messaging your matches through the website?Also think carefully about what their "80% get at least one match" mean. The Speed Dater people haven't responded to my emails and don't seem to care about the problem. I googled the picture for one of the people and saw her "acting/modelling" profile. Why cant you just get a mobile number of your matches, i know, so they can grab more money off you! Some really nice people there, had a fun evening and several of us found a date 2.With the smell of love in the air, local singles can mingle during two-hour speed-dating events.Sessions take place at a variety of bars and restaurants throughout DC and are organized by categories such as age, religion, and hobbies. 24hr advance reservation required; subject to availability.
