Los Angele Speed Dating events are so much fun. First, check in at the bar area when you walk in.
You meet The Queen of Speed Dating, May and the hosts.
You give your name when you check in. (Bring receipt with you for speedy check in)
You write your name on a name tag. This will have your table number on it. This is where you will start for your first date. (If your name tag has a “W” on it, it means your table will be near the “window” side when you head upstairs.)
You grab a Match Sheet and a Profile Sheet. Men take a blue Match Sheet, women take a yellow Match Sheet.
Fill out the Match Sheet with your Name, Badge #, Cell, and E-mail address. Be legible!
Have a seat anywhere downstairs in the bar area and fill out your Profile Sheet.
We will invite you upstairs when it’s time to begin. Hold on because Los Angeles Speed Dating events move fast.
All the instructions are on your Match Sheet.
Here is a reminder:
Once you are invited to go upstairs, May will go over the instructions for the Los Angeles Speed Dating in a group huddle. Women find your table (which is written on your name badge). The women will remain seated at their assigned table number. The men will start at their first table (which is written on the name badge).
You exchange the Profile Card when you first meet. You talk for 3-4 minutes. When you hear the bell ring, you say “goodbye” and make your notes. We give you a minute to make your notes and for the men to rotate. Men, if you start at Table #1, you move to Table #2 next. If you start at Table #2, you move to Table #3.
It’s called Los Angeles Speed Dating so you have to chop chop and be quick. You have to hurry. Once everyone is seating, we start the timer again for 3-4 minutes.
We encourage you to take notes. You need to start taking notes on the correct badge number. For example, men, if you start at Date #6, start taking notes on the Badge #6 spot. You will get everything confused and messed up if you don’t start off correctly.
After you have met everyone, we take 5 minutes and write down who you are interested in seeing again. You fill in the bottom portion of the Match Sheet. Tear the bottom off and turn it in to us. You keep the top portion because all of your notes are on there.
