Once payment is submitted via the secure online processing your seat is reserved in real time. Step 2 - Meet your host at the venue to receive further instructions Your host will be obvious once you enter the venue. Relax, grab a drink and mingle with your new Blink Dating friends. The ladies remain seated, and the guys spend a few minutes minutes with each lady before a timer goes off, and the next place is taken.
After meeting a few singles singles over 35 minutes - we break for half-time drinks and finger food for 15 minutes, before starting the process again for the final phase. The Confidential Match Cards are collected by the host at the end of the night. Step 4- Check your email The matching process is automatically calculated by our software within 24 hours of the event.
Your match results are then sent to your nominated email address. By default, only your email address will be disclosed to your Mutual Matches - if an email address is not available for a member, a mobile number will be provided.
Your Briefing On the night your host will brief you before the speed dating begins. For those that might arrive late or want to be prepared beforehand, we have included the briefing notes your host will use on the night. This way, you will be even more relaxed on the night knowing exactly how the process works! My name is I'm your host tonight, if you need anything please ask at anytime.
It's very important everyone understands the numbering and match system. Females will not move from their positions. For example, Male Name Tag No.
When marking your nametags, females will actually mark them backwards as each male moves up the line. This is the most important bit!
If you change your mind, please clearly cross the other tick out OR request a NEW match card from me. Matches are sent via email tomorrow after 4PM. If you do not have an email address registered with us, your mobile phone number will be released to mutual matches. However, you will only get their first name and last letter of surname tomorrow afternoon, so it's highly recommended you make notes tonight of all those you ticked YES to.
This way you will remember who those matches are tomorrow! Half time is the perfect opportunity to do this. There will also be some nibbles at the end of the event, and you are welcome to stay on as long as you wish.
Guys, its very important that you say your goodbyes straight away once the bell is rung. Please move to your next date straight away to ensure everything runs smoothly! If you need anything, glass of water, pen or new match card sing out. Let's start, please take your places now at your nametag number both males and females, and guys be ready to move quickly in 7 minutes time once you hear the bell! How it Doesn't Work! Please don't ask your fellow Blink Daters questions about their place of work, address or other identifying details on the first blink date.
You can discuss these riveting topics on future dates if there's a mutual match! Try not to drink too much. We recommend taking advantage of the two FREE drink vouchers included with your event, but don't go overboard because this had been the death knell of some of our participants in the past! Please be on your best behaviour. Do not use foul or sexually suggestive language. This will get you banned from future Blink Dating events if we receive a complaint.
