Have joined Sydney Speed Dating but hoping another company will start up and fill the gap Fast Impressions couldn't.
I went to the first meeting about 7 years ago and to the second one recently (I don't date much as you can see).
I have also paid to attend an event at speed dating event in Brisbane and on the day got an email saying that I didn't pay and wasn't book in.I email them my credit card bill to show them that the money has went through and they sill didn't accept even when I ask for the money back or wouldn't talk to me over the phone about the issue.If you wait till the day before the event, the price is much cheaper (from half price to about a quarter of full price, especially for men, a species always in demand since many die young at war or because they are married :) ).In the two meetings I have attended there was nobody I felt strikingly interesting and I had the feeling I was attending a job interview with all the other applicants also present.I have been other single events to and it is the same where the women seem to be there for more a girls night out.
This is very disappointing for the men as they to me seem to be all genuinely looking for a relationship. After vowing to give up 5 months ago due to low female turn out and cancelled events I stupidly decided to sign up to two more events these past two weeks.One could say that, at the end of the day (or night), it's a 'win-win' situation if you pay only a quarter of the price.:) Expect cheap champagne and frozen Coles spring-rolls, but for it's okay; if, like me, you only go occasionally until you lie flat on your grave without the need for anybody else in your life.I paid .00 for speed dating event only to have the event cancelled 1 hour before it was due to start.I was given a lifetime non refundable credit and offered events well out of my criteria. I was a Fast Impressions member for several years and regularly attended the events.They were even so rude in the emails that I was so shock when I read the emails. Would not gave good rates, as they are only after your money.
