This one-of-a-kind event explores the science of attraction through a range of enticing sensory adventures.Sensory Speed Dating debuted in 2013, and has since been held at a raft of music festivals in the UK and the US, as well as venues in London and New York – including the Book Club, Queen of Hoxton, the House of Yes and Littlefield.Those that tend to see the good in everything and everyone - are just what we and our daters are looking for. You can email [email protected] information as to the process of being added to the wait list. Published start times can be found in the event description.If we don't think a dater is someone that fellow daters would get on with - we'll respectfully decline service and reserve the right to do so. We think 'Meet-Up' is a lovely free service that gives those of similar interests the opportunity to connect. Also, it is a good idea to keep checking back on our website as sometimes reservations become available at the last minute. Please try to avoid doing anything unsafe in your attempt to arrive to the event on time - we do like to wait for all participants to arrive.We do question businesses that promote their events through "Meet-Up" groups - only to redirect you to their own website. This may cause an event to start late but we feel a perfect opportunity to chat up the hosts, have a lovely refreshment and settle in. You checked each other on your scorecards and your email address will be exchanged with this person 24 hours after the event.Some companies tout that they partner with many organizations including Craigslist offerings and 'Meet-Up' groups for their events. There is no set start time for the speed dating portion of the night - we like to wait for all daters to arrive, settle in and grab a refreshment before the speed dating portion. Only daters that garner matches are notified approx. How long will I chat with my Prospective ‘Date-Mate’?We at Speed Oakland Dating, do things a wee bit differently. We are British founded and inspired but our daters are just like you. We tend to draw a crowd that is intelligent and amusing, sophisticated and adventurous, while always being cheeky.We don’t find anything romantic about name tags, microphones and whistles – so we don’t use them! Daters that don’t like to settle and tend to set the trend rather than follow it. You will be sent a confirmation from us and your name will be noted on our Guest List.~~Do you screen your speed daters?
We only accept payment via our secure and encrypted checkout systems. We attract such great daters but find - as in life - not every dater is ideal.
Can I return for free if I don't get a match at an event?
Unlike other speed dating companies that offer free spots to those that don't receive matches, we take a different approach to returning guests. Please feel free to select the age range most comfortable for you.
