Early bird tickets available until July 12, 2023!
Here’s the run down of our in-person speed dating events: After purchasing a ticket to an event, you’ll receive a confirmation email from our team once it has been processed. Keep an eye out on your inbox! On the day of the speed dating event, prepare your best outfit and talking points (remember, first impressions are key). Be prepared to arrive at the venue 15 minutes before the speed dating event begins. Our host will be there to check you in and provide you with a scorecard when you arrive. Feel free to take the first quarter of the event to sit back, relax, and mingle with the other guests. We encourage you to grab a drink at the bar at this time too (a little liquid confidence or refreshing beverage never hurts).
Once everyone is in attendance and settled in, we like to start our speed dating events with a little ice breaker game to warm everyone up. Perhaps a bit of trivia or a game of two truths and a lie? It’s important to us that no two events are alike and our team constantly tries new games and ice-breakers at every event.
After the ice breakers are finished, let’s start the speed dating! You’ll be seated in front of a potential match with 8 minutes to get to know one another. Feel free to talk about whatever you want, but we always recommend you keep it lighthearted and professional (don’t do anything we wouldn’t do). Once time is up, the ladies remain seated and the gents move down a spot and take a seat at the table of their next potential match.
Remember to take time at the start of each date to write down your dater’s name and, at the end, mark off if you felt it was a good match or not. Once you’ve spoken to everyone, that’s it, you’re done—great job! Make sure your scorecard is filled out correctly, hand it back to our host, and leave the rest to us.
However, just because the event is over doesn’t mean your night has to be! Feel free to stay for a drink (or two). Kick back, relax, and maybe chat further with some of the other daters from our speed dating event. Within 48 hours you will hear back from us via email with exciting news about your potential matches from our speed dating event.
Well, for starters, we obsess over our dating events and aim to provide unique one-night experiences. We offer speed dating events for singles in Ottawa that have an energetic, exciting, and fast-paced dynamic that steers clear of traditional speed dating tropes.
Speed dating is more than just cycling through people with bland, forced conversation. In-person speed dating is about experiences! Our events are structured to give attendees an opportunity to meet people and have fun doing it. By the end of the event, you may even walk away having learned more about yourself! We offer competitive rates and work with local Ottawa venues to offer an engaging atmosphere, delicious food, and a wide drink selection. We’ve dated here—we know where to go.
At Flare Events, inclusivity is important to us and we make it our mission to ensure every event is a safe space for all. Our team strives to make each and every speed dating event just as special as the next, with no two events alike. It’s our belief that just because you’re here to meet people, that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice having a good time. We offer speed dating events in Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, Calgary, & St. John's — and soon to be in other major cities in Canada! So do yourself a favour and attend a dating event with Flare!
