What is POF Peninsula SPEED DATING?

In our FREE Plenty of Fish Speed Dating event we will have the first of hopefully many Speed Dating Events at our friends Aroma Coffee House in City Center.

How it works: Men and women are rotated to meet each other over a series of short "dates", lasting five minutes. The men stay stationary in one seat and the women will move from date to date (and each male and female will have 25 dates in a little over two and a half hours). Each person will have a card that they will bring with them to each date. The men will be numbered 1-25 and the women will be assigned the letters A through Y. The sheets will have yes/no on each spot - after you "date" the person for five minutes you will know whether or not you might want to see this person again.

At the end of each five minute interval, the Plenty Of Fish Speed Dating Organizer (Anglergrl) will ring a bell to signal the participants to move on to the next date. This will happen 25 times.

At the end of our Plenty of Fish Speed Dating event participants will turn in their cards to submit to the POF Volunteers their list of who they would like to provide their contact information to.

If there is a match, contact information is forwarded to both parties.

Contact information cannot be traded during the initial meeting, in order to reduce pressure to accept or reject a suitor to their face.

So...I need twenty five volunteers to be the first POF Speed Daters.

I have a head start on the men, as Dave (the very single and cute manager of Aromas) and Kevin (from our favorite singers Kevin and Mike) (Kevin is VERY handsome and single) have volunteered to be two of the first to sign up...WOULD YOU BE NEXT?

First 25 girls, and first 23 guys...and you have a spot in the event. Even if you don't make it, please come and help make this event a success...besides, what else are you doing on a Thursday night...and where else can you date 25 people in about two hours? What will happen after that?? You wont know unless you try!

Please email me with questions...and remember - this event is FREE! (not like some of those expensive Speed Dating Services)

Let's get this event going - sign up now!

I would love to be in the top 25 for this POF speed dating event. Just signed up a few weeks ago and am really enjoying some of the uniqueness of this site compared to others, and I LOVE the fact, like I said in my profile, that you "shouldn't have to PAY for a chance at LOVE", and here you don't. This is great!!
Thank-you SO MUCH for giving me this chance, esp. after awaiting another job and the rising costs of everything lately. I've dated a few and chatted, e-mailed and talked to several great prospects already and am having fun with the virtual gifts and comical signs you can send to that special one or to help break the ice.

Love to All who put together the POF site,
Angelfish............. applause: or Later!!!!!!!

Well, hopefully we will have a few more folks sign up...if this is a hit, Dave (our wonderful manager at Aromas) has promised his facility for future events.

Thanks for signing up as the first girl! Now - do we have more folks ready to step up?

Remember, I will be keeping the master list on this thread.

boredbit...don't worry about age...this first POF Speed Dating Event is going to be for all ages.

If it is a success, we will try to make them more age specific...but for now, let's have some fun and see how it goes.

Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

I agree just4jeffgray!

I want everyone to have fun and remember that sometimes our greatest blessings are in our wonderful friends that we have who accompany us on this journey we call life.

The best part of this POF Speed Dating event is that it is FREE FREE FREE! (Did I mention that it was free?)

Even if you are shy about signing up for the actual dates...please come to the event and cheer our daters on...and I could definitely use some volunteers to help me ensure that this moves along smoothly.

I know billfxe has offered to help and so has nine.mm - any other folks?
