For example, if we found someone we were interested in, we quickly invited them to chat with us on Yahoo! Unfortunately, there just weren’t many worth even inviting to chat with IM.
Eg click on '1 star' to just display the reviews we have which received a 1 star rating click or 'Within the last month' to display just reviews posted over the last month.
Was considering booking an event this week in Oxford, but this was listed as postponed (probably because of the fair).
So I contacted the chat to ask about the new date since there was no indication of one on the schedule.
) explaining what we thought of Speed Date.com, but we decided to write a full review on it anyway. On each site, we sent out 450 total first emails to women over the course of 12 weeks. We weren’t sure sometimes if we were chatting with a single woman or a teenage boy just having some fun. We sent out tons of requests but only received and agreement to chat with a small percentage of them. It’s very hard to get to know someone well enough to decide if you want to go out on a date with them.
On Speed Date.com, you can either choose to chat with a girl (assuming she accepts the offer) or accept offers to chat from women that contact you. Plain and simple – Speed is NOT a legitimate dating site. There were too many people just “playing around” online. Yes, there were some real women but the general mindset of someone on Speed is to find a booty call – not a long-term relationship.
If you’ve ever attended a speed dating function at a bar you already understand the concept of speed dating. Instead of chatting face-to-face with women for a short period of time, you’re chatting with them on IM. The entire Speed Dating concept is kind of cool, it’s just not meant for the Internet.
Instead of the traditional create a regular profile, send a girl an email, hope for a response, and then chat for a while via IM if she does respond, you go on random “speed dates”.
Since Speed is a different type of dating site, we didn’t send out any emails. The only positive to our experience on Speed was we didn’t pay a penny for a membership.
Instead, we sent “Speed Date” invites to 5 women per day. It probably decreased our chances of meeting someone, but we didn’t find any reason to sign-up.
Only a small percentage actually accepted our offer (we’ll explain the reason for this in the next section). You get to chat with women for a short period of time for free.
If you want to pay for the site, you can chat for longer, but there are loopholes around that.
