Hi all

If you're single, living in the Warsaw area and fancy a bit of fun in an organised and safe environment, then Speed Dating might be something that interests you? We are running our 1st event on Friday 19th November 2010 at Jimmy Bradley's Irish Bar in Warsaw, start time 7.30pm and the event will last about 2.5 hours. It's a great night out but places are limited to 15 ladies and 15 gents. Prices are 45 PLN for the girls and 85 PLN for the boys. You're need to register your interest to book your place at lovewarsaw.co.uk.

We will be running further events in Warsaw, Krakow and Gdansk during 2011.

Come along and have some fun! :)

Widely known that boys can drink a lot of beer and eat twice than girls. Let's punish them ;)

It's quite normal to charge the boys extra, that way we make sure that there are the correct number of girls there! It is a dating event after all, not a p*ss up!

My, the pressure!

Are there any build-up events? I mean, sweaty armpits time or what? Job interviews are bad enough, but this ...

lol - it's really not like that! It's fun...

You get to spend just 5 mins with each girl so if it isn't going too well, the pain soon ends :)

It'll be worth another trip!

Just in case anyone was wondering, you do NOT get rejected or accepted on the night. You ONLY find out the results a day or 2 after the event. If the girl likes the guy and the guy likes the girl, then the organisers let both parties know and send them each other's contact details.

So, there's really no need to feel any pressure.

The other great thing of course is that ALL the participants are actually single and looking, unlike the traditional places where people hunt such as clubs and bars :)

Well yes, that's the point isn't it? If they were not single or not looking for a relationship, they would not register for a Speed Dating event! Because we run 2 online dating sites (available in Polish as well), we are confident that there are sufficient single females and males in Warsaw to make the event a success.

Speed Dating is perfect for single females because the event is organised and safe, it's also great fun for a group of girls going out together. It also attracts people who are very busy and do not have time to go out to pubs and clubs to find a relationship.

When we receive registrations, we group applicants into age ranges so that participants meet people in the same age range. So don't worry, if you come, you won't have to chat up Grandma!

My friend had gone to a speed dating event in California. She didn't realize it was Asian Night! So... she ended up being the only female present, who was non-Asian. She had fun though. Btw, most of the guys there adored her ;)

40 PLN more for guys, why?

Just checked out the site, are you the same dude that was here a while ago asking for pointers on the site? and if so hows it all working out?

speed dating - great idea.

Nice pics love it... will see if i can add a couple at some point. I remember driving north wroclaw and saw a JCB tipped right over into a ditch, the guy had obviously made a mistake and fallen straight in, would have been a classic if i had my camera.

It's normal practice to do this as it ensures that the girls are there; which is kind of important! Think about it the same way that night clubs charge less or nothing for the girls!

Yes, same guy!

Its going well! I have been in Poland for 1 year now and the site has expanded to include sections on Krakow, Gdansk and an actual Love Poland section as well. Visitor numbers are 600% higher than 12 months ago and the advertising revenues are coming in along with hotel commissions and contextual ads. All the pointers are that the project will be a success.

I still have to do web design and SEO as a freelancer to put the icing on the cake so to speak but hopefully the Love Warsaw project will wipe its own face plus in the very near future.

Thanks, fingers crossed that we get the response!

Thanks for your feedback and I would appreciate any pics that you have or funny stories etc.

The event has been cancelled. We are now looking at an event in January 2011.

Maybe charge the same amount for men and women? Many people will be put off by your sexism.

I think it's pretty slick to make a profit out of someone else's misery, but why should it be almost twice expensive for the boys? (Isn't that sexist?)

Gosh, complicated a bit, because you will be suppossed to date at least two girls whereas girls are supposed to date only one the best candidate.
You know, women in Poland are very expensive...

The question, wildrover is...
Why am I chatting with you?
Women are looking for thousands things, men are often looking for a great lover.
This is a problem.

I obviously don't.

Yes, but only one or two (Okay, maybe three!) things really seem to matter to them.

Well, it seems to me that men know what they want, and women obviously don't? I mean, if I had to look for a thousand things in a woman, I would never find a woman who would fit the picture I have in mind.

:S
