Melissa: I just wanted to thank you for last night. I loved the different format!
Jay: Thanks so much, you made my day. What specifically you liked?
Melissa: The format allowed us to get to know more about the featured person. I got to see more of what they are about. There was a guy at the event named Billy.
Melissa: Never in a million years would I have picked him if this was an in person speed dating. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy the in person speed dating very much. However, some of the things that came out while Billy was featured, may not have come out in the traditional speed dating format. I got to observe some things and saw that we have some common interests and are looking for some of the same things.
Im so glad that we both picked each other and were a match!
What is Group Virtual Speed Dating, otherwise known as Online Speed Dating?
You will be meeting local singles from the comfort of your home (Corona Virus safe) via your computer with Webcam or Smart Phone (strong wifi connection required if using a phone).
The event will take place in a Virtual Room using the Zoom program (Zoom is a free download that is super easy to use).
Why is it called Group Virtual Speed Dating and how else is it similar/different from Traditional Speed Dating:
Just like with traditional speed dating, at the end of the event you will be able to let us know who you were interested in. We will send you both mutual matches (you picked them and they picked you) as well as one way matches (they picked you but you did not pick them).
At this event you would NOT be meeting people one on one, but it would be taking place in a group environment. You would be in a virtual room with approximately 10-14 singles total (Approx 5-7 women and 5-7 men). We would be featuring one person at a time, where the host (me-Jay) would be having a conversation with that person.
We would start out with the basics (e.g. Where are you from, what do you do), but then get into some questions that will bring out your likes and personality. (Example might be: Where is your favorite place that you have traveled or would like to visit)?
As we are talking, potential dates will be observing our interaction and learning more about you. We will save some time at the end of the round for your potential dates to ask you questions as well.
Lastly, if you have any specific topics you want me to discuss with you… while you are featured (topics that will bring out your personality), you can let me know and I will do my best to touch on them.
How many potential dates will be there?
The minimum number of potential dates will be 5 and the maximum will be about 7. If for any reason there were less than 5 members of the opposite sex in attendance, you would get credit for a future Virtual event.
