Pre Dating is a company that organizes speed dating events throughout the United States. Details, prices and booking of events are all available on the website. Those wishing to become event coordinators can also apply.

Pre Dating is a site for booking real life speed dating events.


The events take place across cities in the United States - while a few events also take place in Canadian cities. Each district has its own coordinator (they accept volunteers for this role when there's a vacancy).

Event costs vary but are usually between $23 and $33 per ticket.

They claim to have arranged over 5 million speed dates. But the events are only in certain cities - so unless you live close by one you'll have a long way to go.

The Event Format

The events arranged by pre-dating follow a typical format - you can expect to meet between 6 and 12 single for quick pre-dates lasting about 6 minutes. You can then decide who (if any) of your dates, you'd like to meet again. The site has an extensive FAQ page for those who'd like to find out more about how the dating events work.



They claim to have arranged over 5 million speed dates.


Those who are inquisitive can browse the list of events, by area. There's also a zip code search that will immediately bring up events in that district, or you can choose to be notified of what's going on in a particular area directly by email. Forthcoming events are posted on the site's homepage.

Booking

On viewing the details, you can book a place on an event directly on that page. There's two separate booking buttons, one for men and one for women. Be sure to choose the correct one.

Each event specifies the anticipated age range, the time, the place and the price. This helps create the right mix of singles.

    I heard about speed dating from a friend of mine who met their boyfriend at an event here in Tampa, FL. I didn't even know these actually happened in real life! I thought it was just in movies. Anyhow, I booked through the website, and the entire experience was wonderful. I received a confirmation email a few days before from their corporate office, then a text the day before the event from the local coordinator, and an email with tips and specific directions the day of. When I got there, I was surprised by the quality of people for whom I met. I am in my early 30's, and went to an event for 26-39. Everyone was kind, and I made 4 mutual matches. I don't know what will come from it, but I am still talking to 2 of the men I met there. I would highly recommend this service!

    Avoid

    Unfortunately, speed dating is not the best way to meet people. Women who come to these events forsake the good for the perfect and everyone just ends up alone. You can meet more and better people through online dating than speed dating. Since you get only 6 minutes with a person, the entire encounter is very superficial and as I mentioned if you have any flaws, i.e. if you are human, you will leave with no matches.

    Tried it in two different cities in Florida, Sarasota and Jacksonville. Had fun at both events. Will try it again. My friend just got married to a guy she met at one of the Pre-Dating events!
