What exactly is a SPEED DATING EVENT?

Speed Dating is a very easy fun way to meet several singles in a particular age group in one night.

History: The concept of "Speed Dating" has been around for 15+ years! Speed dating actually started in Los Angeles in 1998 when the first event was held by Rabbi Yaacov Devo, at Pete’s Café in Beverly Hills. Speed Dating eventually crossed the Atlantic and is hot in the UK and many other parts of the world now! 

Objective:
The goal of these events is to help busy active singles, have a chance to meet with several singles in a pleasant non-threatening, private environment face-to-face

*7 in Heaven events are held in upscale restaurants which serve excellent food, not loud bar room pubs.

We have five separate Age Groups for our events, starting at age 23 and up to 69+

When you arrive for Speed Dating, you are greeted by the host and given your assigned table number. Everyone meets at the bar area to mingle before our event begins. Appetizers are also included in the price of our regular Speed-Dating Events and the first drink is on US! We then go to a separate private area with tables. When we begin, the host will give you a brief overview and instructions before we get started. 

We give 7 minutes per “date” hence the name “7 in Heaven”

Women stay at the same table all evening, while the men participants progress around the room to a different table meeting a new "date” every 7 minutes

At the sound of the "DING," each date ends and everyone marks their sheets
S
heets have everyone's name you will meet with listed on it.  You will mark ...YES or NO if you would like to meet with that particular person again

At the end of the evening, everyone turns in their sheet.

Emails are sent the next day (or a phone call if you do not have email) to notify you of your matches.

In addition to those you meet one-on-one in your rotations, you'll have the opportunity to meet and mingle with the other participants before the event and  after the event. At 7 in Heaven regular Speed Dating events, you do get one drink FREE and appetizers. Additional food and drinks are available for purchase through the venue and are at the participant's personal expense.

What is the Age Groups for Events?

We believe that one size does not fit all. Therefore we have a total of 5 different age groups!
If you age falls into more then one group, choose the one that fits you best

Group A  Women 23- 36 / Men 25- 38

Group B  Women 32- 44 / Men 34- 46

Group B+ Women 38- 49 / Men 40- 52

Group C  Women 44- 57 / Men 47-59

Group D  Women 54- 66 / Men 57-69





Do you check (proof) for ages before the event?

I do not "proof" your age at the door of the event. It is my own personal belief- that this is embarrassing and not necessary for this type of event. My events are fun, friendly and social.  You are given the benefit of the doubt when you are asked your age, when completing the registration form.  

If it is brought to my attention by the participants, that you did misrepresent your correct age, you will only be allowed to attend another speed dating event that is appropriate for your correct age.  

This rule applies to BOTH men and women. If you plan on lying about your age, you are only cheating yourself. Remember you only get once chance to make a first impression, and no one wants to start a relationship based on a lie.

How well can you get to know someone in 7 minutes?

While it's obvious that 7 minutes is not sufficient time to get to know someone in any great depth, your goal should be to determine whether the person you are meeting is someone that you would like to follow up with and possibly see again. Meeting someone face-to-face has some real advantages over online dating. Sometimes sparks really do fly with instant chemistry! But at the very least, the shroud of unknown associated with the internet is a not an issue. Try concentrating on the questions you ask and the observations you make of each person you meet. This will be the most valuable way to making your assessment.

*Before you attend one of our 7 in Heaven events, you can get some tips and suggestions to help you prepare to attend one of our events from the Dating Tips page

 

 

Do people really connect and match up at these events? 


YES connections happen all the time!  

 

I do know of hundreds of long term connections and marriages that have been made possible through attending our events at 7 in Heaven. Not all connections and marriages are posted as many wish to keep their privacy. 

 

We bring singles together in fun ways giving you every opportunity to make these connections. No one knows exactly when and where your long term connection will happen for you, but coming to our events will make it much easier and increase your odds. 


Check out our
TESTIMONIALS page to view our successful happy connections!

What information do you give my matches at a SPEED DATING EVENT?

The morning following a Speed Dating Event (usually before 12pm the next day),
we email all participants of the results.
 

Those without email can call us for their matches. 

We provide everyone that has attended with the results from that event, even if you received no matches.  "MATCH" happens when you BOTH check YES on each other. Your match information will include
only the first name of your match and contact information (cell numbers and email)

7 in Heaven will also let you know (the first names only) of those that choose you
but you did not choose them on your sheet. Also referred to as "one way matches".  

YES, you can let us know if you changed your mind about someone, and I will update the matches and give you their contact information too. Anyone that you picked that did not pick you will be informed of your interest in case they change their minds

 

What happens if I don't receive any matches at a Speed Dating event?


7 in Heaven
email
s everyone with or without matches, the results of the Speed Dating event you attended. Anyone lacking matches for any reason are welcome to attend another of our Speed Dating events for 1/2 price standard admission. That means EVERY reason, regardless of whether it was because you choose no one; or no one choose you. 

 

*Single Mingles and other Special Events, 1/2 price credit does not apply 

This is only for SPEED DATING EVENTS



What happens if I cancel, don't show up, arrive late, or leave early at a Speed Dating event?

In the event that you need to cancel and give at least 24 hours prior notice to the scheduled event, we will allow you a refund or a credit toward a future event.
Our speed dating events rely on equal numbers of men and women to pair for each round of dates. Out of consideration for the other participants, please make every effort to attend and be on time. 

Please appreciate that last minute cancellations, leaving in the middle of an event and "no shows" impact others' participation.

Please be advised that just like any event ticket purchase, there are NO refunds or credits of any kind for a No Show* or leaving the event early.
Once your registration is confirmed and paid (your credit or debit card is charged or your check or money order received), your sale is final.

If you aren't able to attend an event at the last minute for which you have registered and paid, out of consideration for others, please exercise the courtesy of letting us know ASAP. Ideally, the best solution is for you to pass along your admission to a friend of the same sex and within the event's stated age group so as not to throw off our balance of matches. If you are unable to send a replacement, we’ll attempt to replace you from a waiting list (if there is one).

 *No Show - In the event that you do not show and do not call the venue to let us know that you are unable to attend, you will be charged full price to register to attend another event - absolutely no credit given.



What are the rules for SPEED DATING and other types of events?

In order to keep the environment fun, low-pressure, comfortable and safe, participants must observe the following:

  1. THIS RULE APPLIES TO ALL EVENTS - Pre-payment reserves your seat
  2. SPEED DATING requires pre-payment to reserve a seat, as we balance a list of men and women. Many other types of events require pre-payment also which will be posted.
    CASH OPTIONS for payment are available on some events but the cost will be
    $5 higher then the pre-payment option. Those that choose to pay CASH should RSVP but understand
    CASH does not guarantee you seat, pre-payment DOES.

  3. THIS RULE APPLIES ONLY to SPEED DATING EVENTS  
    You may not ask anyone directly out on a date
    Please refrain from asking anyone for contact information or giving out contact information
    (not even a business card) AT SPEED DATING EVENTS those that are interested in keeping in touch with you, will indicate that on the Speed Dating selection sheet. Those that you "MATCHED" with, will receive your contact information the next day.
  4. *Other less structured events you may ask directly for contact information, or ask the coordinator of the event for a DATE MATCH card for a more subtle and less direct way of requesting contact information. 

    See DATE MATCH for additional explanation.

  5. THIS APPLIES ONLY to SPEED DATING EVENTS  
    There will be an equal proportionate male to female ratio

    All other activity or sporting events, dances, dinner parties or special events- gender ratio will vary and may not be equal

  6. THIS APPLIES to ALL EVENTS  
    You must represent yourself in an honest manner
    That includes not lying about your age or marital status before signing up for an event.

  7. THIS APPLIES to ALL EVENTS Be respectful of yourself and others
    You may not ask any sexually explicit questions nor say or do (including gestures) anything that may be interpreted as being threatening or sexual harassing. For the concern and well being of everyone attending our events, we reserve the right to ask anyone with rude, disrespectful or inappropriate behavior to not return to any future events.

  8. THIS APPLIES to ALL EVENTS - DATE WISELY
    Although we do ask some basic screening questions, we do not complete any formal type of back-ground checks on anyone attending 7 in Heaven Events. Therefore you are completely solely responsible for your interactions with anyone you meet at an event and make any arrangements to date or any other types of meetings arranged.

  9. Understand 7 in Heaven is not a *Personal Matchmaking Service
    Many singles make great connections at our events, but keep in mind we are a social activity club giving you fun opportunities to meet singles.

BBQ's,Single Dinner Parties, Sports and other Activity Events....what is a DATE MATCH CARD and how does it work?


In addition to Speed Dating Events, 7 in Heaven hosts many different kinds of events such as BBQ's, Dinner Parties, Dances, Day Trips and many types of Sports and Activity based events. These events are less structured then Speed Dating Events and more activity focused. 

However, just like SPEED DATING events, we still give you an opportunity to make connections. At these events, if you see someone you would like to meet again, simply fill out a DATE MATCH CARD. 

Write your name and contact information on the front of the card. Then put the name of the person you are interested in on the back of the card. At the end of the event, hand the card to the hostess We will notify the person (or persons) you wrote on the card and let them know you are you are a SECRET ADMIRER and you are interested in getting to know them better. We will then give that person your contact information to get in touch with you. If there is a mutual interest, they will contact you.  

OR maybe someone may enter your name... we will let you know of the name and contact information of your SECRET ADMIRER

You may also use the card to give your contact information directly to the other person you met at the event if you feel comfortable doing so


*NOTE- NO ONE receives your contact information without your permission.


 

Will a single woman feel comfortable if she attends an event alone?


Attending a 7 in Heaven SPEED DATING or Activity/Sport Event is actually a very comfortable format for single women to attend alone. 

I encourage women to attend alone, as this is the best way to make new friends, both male and female. When you are busy socializing with your buddy, you don't socialize with as many singles. If you alert me when you arrive that you have come alone, I am always glad to introduce you to those that have already arrived. 

Once a Speed Dating event begins, you will be so busy you won't even have time to notice you are alone! 

The choice is yours, come alone or come with a friend but have fun either way. 

 

What are the advantages of Speed Dating and Single Activity Events versus online dating or other ways to meet singles?

Speed Dating and activity events allow you to meet face-to-face with age appropriate single men and women locally where you live and work.

Unlike online dating, you get to meet the girl or guy next door, not the online dater that lives 8,000 miles away from you. Participants live or work in your area, and we all know that if you're looking to find a successful relationship, statistically your chances for success are greater the closer to home you date. Also, we all know about how many MR. or MRS. Married-and- cheating are using the online dating sites these days as a way to meet unsuspecting singles. Not meeting in person and instead emailing and talking on the phone allows people to easily be something they are not. Here at our single events you are meeting face-to-face with men and women that are serious about finding a quality date.

Unlike meeting at the Laundromat or grocery store or at work, everyone has the same agenda - single and looking to meet someone special!

The events make it easy to meet other singles. You don't need to worry about whether or not anyone will talk to you. At Speed Dating, there's no need to fear rejection because at the event no one is allowed to ask someone for a date.

Your whole evening isn't monopolized by someone who doesn't interest you. Unlike what might happen on those blind dates your friends set you up on!

How many times have you gone out with your friends to a crowded Restaurant/ Bar/ Happy hour and not met one single person in the course of the whole evening?
Speed Dating and activity events are more efficient. In just one evening you'll meet between 7-10 dates instead of just one - saving you time and money.

It's fun!!! Sometimes Speed Dating reminds us a little of musical chairs for grown-ups. But in our grown-up version, no one loses or gets left out.
