I didn't get any matches. Does that mean I can come again for free?

Unfortunately not. We cannot guarantee whether or not you will receive matches. If you tick 'yes' or 'friend' for anyone you have met at a SpeedDater event you have indicated that you would like to see them again and therefore do not qualify for a free ticket to a future event. The guarantee does offer a free ticket to anyone who chooses not to tick anyone at one of our events.

I got few or no ticks/matches. How many do people normally get?

The number is very varied. However, in general men tend to tick more people than women do. We've also established that men tend to overestimate the number of women who have ticked them and women tend to underestimate how many men have ticked them. Around 80% of guests get at least 1 match.

I ticked someone for dating but only have a friendship match with them. Why?

You only receive a 'dating' match if both people select dating. If one person chooses dating and the other chooses friendship it comes up as a 'friendship' match. If both people choose friendship it is also a friendship match.
A summary of matches:

Match + Match = Dating Match

Match + Friend = Friendship Match

Friend + Friend = Friendship Match

Match + No = No Match

Friend + No = No Match

No + No = No Match

Why does it say 'Event not ready' for an event I went to last night?

This means we have not yet entered everyone's badge numbers after the event you attended. We aim to have all events ready by midday the day after the event you attended. We send you a courtesy email to notify you that the event is open, but sometimes this does go to junk folders.
