Testimonials

"Hi Michal, Just wanted to let you know that my husband, Ehud, and I met at one of the speed dating events May 1, 2011 at bar luna  on the upper west side. He proposed one year later at slightly Oliver (which was where bar luna was). We now live together on the uws with our 2 month old daughter, Ella. We thank you so much for having this event! !!" March 2014 NYC

Hi Michal
Thank you for inviting me to the Valentine's Day Speed dating event (Feb 13th) at Gilgamesh.
It was the best event by far, beautifully organised and in the most dreamy romantic room. I really enjoyed the night out, and the whole evening was so much fun. I am so pleased that I went and made some new friends.
It was lovely to go even for the social side of things! I went to other events for Valentine's Day but this one was absolutely perfect in every way!!

Sending you all the best, lots of love, A, London

"Michal and SpeedDating Staff,
I wanted to thank you for a lovely time last night in Tel Aviv at Loveat.  The location, participants, staff, and overall ambiance was top notch.  It is clear that this is truly your calling. I had the most wonderful time...thank you!  I want to nudge anyone who is hesitant to join, not to fret, as a fun night is guaranteed.  Anything beyond that is an extra reward :)  Looking forward to joining you again soon!"
Best,Gilat October 2012 

"Thanks for the great speed dating evening it was lots of fun!" Marc.

"The whole event was very professional and well organised. I would definitely come again and would recommend it to my single friends. You are delivering a much needed service in a good atmosphere and environment. Thank you." A.E.



 

What is Speed Dating


What is speed dating?
It is often heard that single people are wasting their time – a valuable one if you are a busy person,
on a long date with the wrong person for you. Someone you are not acquainted with received your number
from a friend of yours, he or she said they were fabulous and you accepted an invitation to go on a date.
You go out to a restaurant. Another blind date that went wrong.
They are not your type, and after three minutes you are looking for conversation topics that will pass the time.
You end up spending the whole evening thinking you should havestayed at home or just went out for a drink
with your best friend. At least you would have enjoyed the evening!
You are also a kind person and you wouldn't like to offend the person sitting in front of you,
by going home after only half an hour.
Sounds familiar? It happens to all the single people all over the world!
With any successful blind date there will be hundreds of awful ones.
The experienced blind daters, men and women will tell you that already in the first 5 minutes they are able to know
whether the person opposite them is a potential partner. This is what generated the idea of speed dating.
Why spend a whole evening trying to get to know someone you wouldn't want to know in the first place?
You therefore, can spend 7 minutes meeting around 10-12 potential partners,in a warm and friendly evening
during which you will decide whether you would like to meet them again or not, with no strings attached!


How does it work?

The idea is of genius simplicity. For a small amount of money, we will get you to meet around 12 professional Jewish
singles in your age group.
The evenings are held at a local or centrally located trendy bar. You will be seated around tables or sofas.
The women stay seated during the event and the men move around from one table to the next when 7 minutes are up.
At the end of the 7 minutes of each round, the bell will ring giving the men the signal to move on to the next table
and meet with the next woman. After each date the participants mark on the score card they have received
from the hostess at the start of the evening.
You have a choice whether you would like to meet that person again as a Date or as a friend.
A simple choice will determine whether you would like to see that person again or not.
We give you the choice of either choosing to see someone again as a date which means that if that person chose you
as a date as well - you will have a Date match with them, and both your contact details will be revealed to both of you.
The additional choice of choosing someone as a friend is to enable you to decide that that person was nice enough
to be friends with, you never know, that person might have another friend who might be your one!
its always good to enlarge your circle of friends!

During the evening
Upon arrival you will be checked in and receive a score card. You will have some time to mingle,
get used to the atmosphere and have a drink. We will show you which table to attend for your first date.
You will spend 7 minutes talking to the person opposite you. At the end of this encounter you will mark in the
designated box whether you wish to see that person again or as a date or as a friend.
The men then move to the next table. We will give you a break at some point in order to get another drink or freshen up.
At the end of the event everyone are welcome to stay around for another drink and mingle.
Please make sure you keep the score card as you will need it to enter your choices on our website at home later.

As we also give you the option of choosing someone as a friend, the email will include your DATES and FRIENDS matches.
What if I chose someone as a “DATE” and they have chosen me as a “FRIEND”? (Or vice versa?)
This will come up as a FRIENDS match.

Why do so many people come to speed dating?
In one evening you have been given the chance to meet many different singles - men and women,
where as if you were to meet any of them separately you would have had to spend two to three months!


What do we think this night is all about?

We believe that this evening is not only about finding your date, but also about finding other friends.
You never know who you might meet, and each person is a world with people surrounding it.
This is also a good chance for you to brush your communication skills.
We pride ourselves with a relaxed atmosphere during our events and we do not like to create too many ‘rules’.
Above all we believe that being spontaneous is the best way to be!

Some tips

  • Be who you are.
  • First impressions are the most powerful ones.
  • Try to talk and listen equally
  • Avoid asking the same questions each time
  • Be creative.
  • Try to make it entertaining
  • Enjoy dating for what it is, dating. It is meeting people and socializing and spending time in the company of stimulating individuals who may or may not play a bigger part in your life down the road.
  • The fact is, most people have something interesting to offer. While you may not be out on the dating scene looking for new friends, you may well find one or two fabulous people along the way.
