After explaining the process we went through and the false advertising, we insisted that either we needed our money back or to be transferred to a future event.The people that showed up for the most part are working career people with quality jobs and professional attitude.Being 29 and 35 ourselves, we had ZERO desire to stay and participate in an event that was not what we had signed up for.
Also emailed and called customer service with no response. Matches the next day made the event even more worthwhile.
Everybody was a bit nervous at the beginning but as soon as the first date started all the tension seemed to go away.
We were approached a few minutes later by the event hostess, who was on at least her second beer and not at all dressed professionally like you would expect a hostess to, and were asked why we wanted to switch and what we were looking for. Great alternative to online dating based on seeing the person in person and to see if they can hold a conversation. Dating has been doing Speed Dating events for busy single professionals since 2001.
The only positive is after attending over 12 events and spending a lot of capital, I dated someone from predating for a few months.
The host was very professional and efficient and the people who attended were mostly all career professionals.
Far better luck meeting through acquaintances and people at social events I enjoy attend regularly.
Call customer service, they can be snarly regarding your feelings. Early 40s who have a college leveled educations, no kids and a good job which takes brains.
Have done 6 events with them and they are pretty well planned out. We decided we would just contact the corporate number, file a complaint and ask for a reimbursement. Although I live in Miami I work in Broward and went to an event at Tokyo Blue which is down the road from my office.
The event ran smoothly, people had a good time, the event host kept things light and fun.
