It’s our What? Who? Why? Where? and How?

Let’s begin…

What?

Speed dating is a dating system whose purpose is to encourage people to meet a large number of new people. Our version of speed dating involves a group of Muslim singles, that meet and chat for 5 minutes, after which you can decide whether or not you would like to see them again, and you only get put in contact with the people that you want to meet who also want to meet you again – no more awkward phone calls and no having to avoid people you don’t like.

Who?

You, young single professionals aged 24-37.

Why?

Why should you go for speed dating? And why do we organize speed dating for Muslims? It’s okay, we’ll answer both questions! =)

Why # 1

You should go because this is a perfect event where you get the chance to get to know 15 people from the opposite gender and network with 14 other people from the same gender. The value of 15 dates for the price of 1? Now that’s a bargain!

Why # 2

Well, we KNOW there are a number of speed-dating events out there. But it is very non-Muslim skewed. Please don’t get us wrong, we respect our non-Muslim friends, but we want to provide the chance for those that want and feel more comfortable to meet Muslim brothers and sisters in a safe and observed environment.


Where?

Location will mostly be at restaurants which serve Halal food and non-alcoholic beverages. We will rotate the location for every event to keep the environment different and full of surprises!


How?

You will each have 15 face-to-face 5-minute dates and you will be given a ‘match card’ at the beginning of the event. After every 5 minutes, our facilitator will ring a bell to indicate your date is over. The ladies will remain seated while and the men will move to the next seat and spend the next 5 minutes with a new ‘date’.

No personal information (eg. Phone numbers or email) is to be exchanged between the participants at this time. If you like what you see, simply mark a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ next to each person’s name in the match card.

At the end of the event, our facilitators will collect the match cards and you get a chance to mingle around.

If you marked a ‘yes’ for someone, and he/she marked a ‘yes’ for you, then you have a match! We will send your matched results within 24 hours via email. Isn’t it simple, easy, safe and full of fun?

In the event that there is a shortage of people, we would cancel the event in advance and place you in the next session. This way, you are guaranteed to meet the required number of people and better chances of getting your match.
