SPEED DATING WORKS
Hear it from our past attendees!
I met Jim at a friend's New Year's Eve party and he was persistent in trying to get me to attend an event! Well, after a couple of tries, I met someone and we have gone out on 4 dates now! Ok, Jim: NOW you can get off my back now! You got me matched up! All the BEST & I'm sending a referral!
I attended the "Anti-Valentine's Day" event on 2/14/2011. A friend convinced me to go out and have some fun instead of staying at home. I had never done this before but heard that speed dating was something new. I was impressed that Jim & Cathy, the founders actually ran the event and Cathy sat in as a "date" because there was an odd number of men. She helped calm my jitters so I could relax and have more fun! I ended up having 3 matches!
My event was the Grey Goose Vodka Event a few months ago. Being recently divorced and always working, I just don't have the time to get out and meet many women. I found one of Rockville Romance's business cards on my car and stopped myself from tossing it aside & thought - Why not? I was impressed with the venue, Phillip's Seafood on Rockville Pike, but what shocked me was that I learned that Jim met his wife through a speed date! On my score card, I picked 4 women to continue further contact and was matched up with 3 of them!
I attended an event last year and wondered aloud to myself, what happened? I didn't get any matches! I thought I did everything right? Jim coached me afterwards and pointed out a cardinal rule: "You never get a second chance to make a FIRST impression". I had a day off that day from work and didn't really present myself well. I was too "casual" he said. Well, I took it upon myself to "clean up" and dress to impress the next time, treating it like a "job interview". Guess what? This time, I got 2 matches and am still seeing the fabulous woman I met!
The Anti-Valentine's Day event (2/14/2012) was at Rockafellas Sports Bar & Grill. Neat place where I'll be going to watch games! Although I didn't have a match, I met some really interesting women that I was surprised that would be doing such a thing like speed dating! I will definitely be trying again! Thx Cathy & Jim for putting on a fun night!
