Yes, of course, although they will not be able to stay in the room after the dating event starts. By then you will have already started to meet plenty of people.
Example: “Please plan an event that will enable me, a 56-year-old woman, to participate in the speed dating. I just turned 40 and after reading the age group for your event I was offended.” Over 40 myself, I empathized and promised these people—my people—that I would be the one to turn this ship around. Yes, typing it out makes it sound so much worse than it did in my head, but I wanted so much for this event to happen.

“I’ll just show up then,” was her one-sentence, resigned e-mail reply. Speed-dating is one of many ways to meet a new love, but it is not right for everyone.
Speed dating is designed to be totally rejection-free so to provide this information would detract from this unique feature. Most other companies give three but we believe the extra time really does make the difference.
You will get one minute to make your mind up between dates.

Yes, but please be aware that the majority of people will be aged within the age guide.Be realistic, and only book events where you are likely to meet people of a similar age to you.You are welcome to attend as many speed dating events as you wish.Most people that attend events are new to speed dating so you are unlikely to ever meet the same people twice at our events.My final events played out like the fitful struggles of any star-crossed relationship.
