How the evening works:

Arrival: At registration you'll be given your speed dating card for the evening and a name tag.

Find your seat: Start the night sitting at your designated first table, which is the number next to your name on your speed dating card.

Speed dating: You'll have seven minutes at each table. A bell will ring to end each date. The girls will sit tight while the guys will move on to the next table. Between dates, write notes on your card about the person you just met and circle the person's name to indicate if you would like to see them again.

Half-way break: Around the half-way mark, we'll take a short break so you can refresh your drink or visit the restrooms.

Hand in your dating card: At the end of the evening, hand in your card with the names and your responses, and keep the part of the card where you made your notes.

Stick around: We have the space for the rest of the night, so they'll be plenty of opportunity to mingle once the mini-dates are over.

Get your mutual matches: If there is a mutual match, we'll send you a text exchanging contact information within 48 hours.


Tips: How to get the most out of your night!

Arrive on time: Make sure to arrive on time at 7pm as we will start promptly at 7:15pm. We can't start without you!

Cash in your drink vouchers: There will be an open bar throughout the event, so feel free to grab beers, wines or ciders to enjoy during your dates!

Write down notes between dates: Wrap up the conversations as soon as the bell rings as you will have one minute break between each speed date to circle names and make notes on your card about each date. With so many dates, it's easy to forget details if you don't write them down!

Circle many names to get mutual matches: Make sure you circle as many names as possible on your card to give you the best chance of having mutual matches so you can continue your dating experience when the Jconnect event is over!

Mingle at the bar for the rest of the night: We will have exclusive use of the bar after the speed dating has finished, so feel free to purchase more drinks, dinner and mingle!
