About Speed Dating

You know what it's like when you're sitting at a bar and you spot a beautiful lady across the room and feel that instant attraction. But then you need to figure out a way to get her attention and the whole time you're wondering if she is even single? Or let’s switch to the blind or the almost blind date when you've only viewed a picture of your date online. They begin walking towards you and you're thinking…oh please don’t let this be him! But it is him, just 10 years after that picture was taken and now you're stuck sitting through dinner with this guy when you know the attraction isn't there.

Speed dating solves these problems! All participants are single and you don’t need to think of a pick up line or a way to get their attention. Everyone will get 4 minutes of one-on-one time to chat with each person of the opposite sex to see if there's any chemistry. And lastly, if there is no chemistry, those 4 minutes go by rather quickly! No long drawn out dinner date with someone you're just not into!

Dress Code

We encourage you to wear what you feel most comfortable in, however we do ask that you are dressed neatly and in appropriate attire.

How long will I chat with each date?

You will have four minutes to chat with each date which should allow enough time to know if you 'click' with someone or would like to chat to them further.

How many people will I meet?

Encounter Dating's events vary in size, anywhere from 16-30 singles register for any given event.

What if I need more time to chat with someone?

Don’t worry, you can also chat further with your prospective ‘Matches' at intermission or mingle after the event. Just have fun and go with it!

How do I know if I have had a Match?

If you tick 'date' or 'friend' to someone on your match card and they also tick 'date' or 'friend' to you, then you've got a match! We will then send you each other's details within 24 hours after the event.

What information do you provide to my Matches?

Only personal details, such as first name and mobile number, which you have agreed for us to share with your 'Match'. At no time will we share any information with anyone other than a mutual 'Match'.

What happens if I don't meet anyone that I like at a Speed Dating event?

If for any reason after attending a Speed Dating event, you decide you do not want to tick 'yes' to anyone's name on your match card, your next Speed Dating event is 50% off. Simply email us at bookings@encounterdating.com.au within 3 days after the event and we will send you a promo code to use at a future Speed Dating event.

I am older or younger than the specified age group – can I still attend?

This age group is for 26-38, however as a part of our Terms and Conditions we allow guests to be outside of the age specified by a maximum of 2 years. If you are over this age limit you cannot attend this event and must attend an event for the next age bracket up.
