Thank you all! I nervous about attending – but it going was totally was worth going and meeting everyone! A very clever way of meeting people. I really hope that we can meet up again!– Helen C.  (Chicago, IL)

Disclaimer about Late arrivals:

Please arrive at Check In time. If you arrive after the Event Start time, we will not be able to put you into the event or refund your money if you have already paid. Adding another person after the Event Start time disrupts the rotations and distracts everyone while meeting each other. This rule is in place to provide the highest quality experience for those who do show up on time so the event goes smoothly.

** Pre-payment is highly encouraged! It helps us create a better experience for you and makes it less likely that we’ll have to cancel an event. We offer a no-risk pre-payment philosophy. You can pay online to reserve your seat and as long as you email Jonathan the week of the event and give us at least 24 hour’s notice, we will gladly give you a refund if you can’t make it. This is our no-risk offer to you and every member of Speed Friending Events. (Seating is first come first served, and pre-paid members get guaranteed spots at the event.) 


How to find us? 

Look for the Host or the rest of the group when you first walk in the door. We will be wearing nametags including the Host.


Bring the following to the event : A pen and about 7 interesting questions to ask your partner on a 3×5 notecard.


**If you do not have a pen or notecard please still come to the event. These supplies will be provided for those who forget to bring them. We still want you!! See Event Details below for more information.

** Our events are usually at venues that are 21 and up where there are usually ID checks. Remember to bring your ID too before you leave home!!


How do I Dress?

Dress Attire – Be you. Be stylish. Dress to make a great impression on your new friends


Event Details :

Our event will start promptly at the designated Event Start time. Please check in as close to Check In time as possible.

Each person sits in a chair across from a partner. Your partner may be a guy or girl. You get to ask your partner the questions you have brought to the event. Your partner responds. After you are both done responding to each other’s questions, you switch partners. Afterwards, people are free to mingle at the bar and get drinks, exchange numbers, and have a great time after.

You can ask any of the questions you brought…you can even steal other’s questions! Make the questions fun, silly, thought-provoking or even like Miss America-type questions!

Here are some sample questions that you can ask your partner :

1) If you were given a million dollars, what would you do with it? 

2) Would you rather eat pizza your entire life? Or not be able to tell a lie for a year?

3) What kind of comic book character best represents you?

4) Would you rather have the ability to fly? Or have the ability to breath underwater? Why?

5) What would make you a good friend? What are your best qualities?

Steer away from these type of questions :

1) What do you do for work?

2) How long have you lived in here?

3) What do you like most about this town?

Help us make these events successful by bringing your friends!

Okay, so I’ve made a new friend at the event. How do I follow up with someone I meet at the event?

You will be partnered with many people at the event. In order to keep the event moving along you should only get contact information from people you meet after the main Speed Friending Event is over. We have a social time right after the main event, which gives you plenty of time to naturally get to know someone.

The idea of the event is that Speed Friending is a giant icebreaker for the group. Then afterward we all do something together, usually pool, chat over food, play games, sit around and talk. So after the main event is over, we all move to a separate location and have a social mixer to mingle immediately following the main event. At the mixer everyone openly mingles and exchanges contact information. And if you see someone you like and want to be friends with or get their number, just talk to them and simply ask for their number after the event, just like you would at any party, or other social setting. We are all looking for friends and new connections here.


Please sign up even if you see a waiting list! We promise to move you into spots as they become available. We create waiting lists to ensure those who have already paid or RSVP’d early have an enjoyable and memorable time. RSVP’s for all events are first come, first served.

Rules and Refund Policy:

We highly encourage you to pre-pay. This reserves you a seat guaranteed, so your host can prepare your seat in advance and also be able to provide the best event possible for you each time! We want you to feel safe pre-paying and understand that events in your life pop up. If that happens, Notify us at to request a refund; refunds requests are allowed up to 24 hours before the event date.

No-Show Policy

We want you to feel safe pre-paying and understand that events in your life pop up. If that happens, notify us at least 24 Hours before the event, email [email protected] and we will issue you a credit for a future event.

If you already made a payment and do not attend, and you DO NOT email your host at 24 hours before the event start time, your forfeit your ticket.

We spend hours preparing for each of our events and we make arrangements in advance such as having enough wait staff to our event, which is based on the amount of attendees expected. Additionally, various suppplies have to be prepared by the host before impact our ability to give everyone who dose attend a great time.

Late Arrival Policy:

For late arrivals. Please arrive no later than 30 minutes after Check-In time. If you arrive after, we may not be able to put you into the event or refund your money if you have already paid. Late arrivals disrupt the rotations and distract everyone while meeting each other. This rule is in place to provide the highest quality experience for those who do show up on time so the event goes smoothly.

Thank you, see you there!
