+ So, I registered for tickets. Now what?
Hold tight! We start releasing tickets two weeks out from the event, and will continue to release tickets until the event is sold out.
+ How much are tickets if I'm successful in the ballot?
Tickets are $25+bf.
+ What are my chances of getting a ticket in the ballot?
Your chances are around one in five. If you don't get an access code this time, please try again next month (or bribe your cute housemate to be your wingman and skip the ballot!)
+ Are there door sales?
We do occasionally have door spots, if we find we have an uneven number of attendees on the night. If you wanna try your luck, just turn up half an hour after the advertised start time (no later) and bring cash.
+ Can I just come and hang out at the bar?
No, but you can definitely volunteer to help out. We'll give you a name tag and even buy you a couple of drinks. We also take volunteers to help with set-up/pack-down in exchange for tickets, if you're a student or just a bit broke.
+ I'm over your age limit. What gives?
We're not age-ist, we just feel there's already a lot going on in terms of speed dating events for over 35s. We do the odd event where we'll push the age bracket up to 40, but they're few and far between (sorry!) Come along to one of our other events instead!
+ I got a ticket (yay!) Now... what should I wear?
Please don't stress out about what to wear, or who to make eye contact with. Let's keep things casual. Just... erm... don't wear a suit, ok?
+ How will the night work?
You'll go on twenty odd dates, each four minutes long. You won't have to exchange contact details in person and your phone number is only given out where both of you have said yes. You won't date everyone, but there'll be time to chat to those you didn't date.
+ Do I get free drinks for showing up?
Nah. We know some speed dating "services" bribe their guests with free drinks (lol), but we have full confidence in the fun factor of our events, so don't feel the need for bribes. Please also keep in mind, many of these other companies charge $60+ a ticket.
+ What should I talk about with my dates
+ That was so much fun! How long until I get my matches?
We send matches out within 48 hours, in time for the weekend!
