At Pre-Dating's speed-dating events up to 24 mingle-ready singles and hopeless romantics converge for a gender-balanced evening of abbreviated rendezvous and private duologues. Focusing especially on the needs of busy professionals, Pre-Dating's events are always split evenly between men and women attendees, ensuring a balanced, one-to-one ratio for dates and spirited bouts of Red Rover. During the two-hour verbal waltz, daters chat with individual counterparts for six minutes at a time. Then, at the end of the event, guests complete and turn in a score sheet that divides potential suitors from the rest. After reviewing the score sheets, Pre-Dating will supply each attendee with the email addresses of matches who said "Yes," allowing pairs to fan the flames of love or a roaring dumpster fire during a follow-up date.
