How does Face-to-Face Dating work?
6 people meet in a bar, including you and your partner. You always participate as a team of two. Women especially tend to take advantage of signing up with friends. However, if you decide to register alone, a partner will be assigned to you. After 1.5 hours, the location changes and you’re off to a new table of 6, which consists entirely of new people. So you do not meet anyone twice in one evening. After visiting 3 bars all participants come together for a final meet-up. The next day you can choose who you would like to see again. If 2 people tick each other, a follow-up date will be organized. This is also included in the registration fee.
Conclusion: With Face-to-Face Dating you have 1.5 hours per bar to meet new people. There are no uncomfortable 1-to-1 situations, as you always sit at a table of six. To end the evening there is a meet-up with all participants. After the event you can tick your dream partner in the voting process. Then we’ll organise follow-up-date if there is a match.
With speed dating you get to know a lot of people in a short time. However, it is not possible to establish a connection in 7-10 minutes. In the short time you can only score by appearance, there is no time for more. Speed dating is also not ideal if you’re looking to add to your friendship circle.
