Frequently Asked Questions


In-Person Speed Dating

What type of people can I expect to meet?
We tend to draw a crowd that is more serious about dating. Our daters have a sense of adventure and are searching for a bold new way to meet other singles in their area—while also having a good time.

How do I reserve my place?
It’s simple! Check out the events listed on our website’s Event page, social media, or on our Eventbrite page. Find a date and location that works for you and purchase a ticket. You will receive a confirmation email with all the information you need. Happy dating!

Do you vet your attendees?
Vetting is not something we practice as we strongly believe everyone deserves an opportunity. Our events are run in inclusive safe spaces with a zero tolerance for any negative behavior.

What happens if the event is sold out?
We wish we could host events with unlimited singles. Unfortunately, we do cap our events. If you wish to be added to a waitlist for an event, please email us at flareevents.to@gmail.com and we will do our best to accommodate.

Can I return for free if I don’t get a match at an event?
While we can’t guarantee you’ll get a match, we can promise that you’re always welcome to come to another one of our events! In the event you don’t receive a match, we send a discount code so you can come back and meet a whole new pool of daters!

I am older or younger than your age ranges—can I still attend?
Of course! Our age ranges are simply suggestions. Please select the age range you are most comfortable with. If you don’t see an age range that is suitable for you, please check back or let us know.

What if I meet someone who isn’t being a team player?
We have a less than zero tolerance for any behavior that is upsetting or discomforting. If you experience troubling behavior from a fellow dater, please notify the event host so they can deal with the situation accordingly.


Digital Speed Dating

How does a digital speed dating event work? Is it different from your in-person events?
It’s a similar format to our in-person events—just from the comfort of your own home. But don’t be afraid to dress up! Once all the daters have entered the virtual room, we like to start off with an ice breaker to warm everyone up. Afterwards, your host will begin to move daters two at a time into their own private room where they can get to know each other. The host will rotate the group every 8 minutes—you’ll get a chance to meet everyone!

Can I attend via a mobile phone, tablet, or computer?
Of course! Any device is perfectly fine as long as you have your microphone and camera settings enabled.

Will I be on my own or will there be a host there to assist me?
Fear not! Once you enter the first virtual room, there will be a Flare Events host there to answer any questions and facilitate the event.

What if I meet someone who isn’t being a team player?
Our same rules apply for the digital world! We have a less than zero tolerance for any behaviour that is upsetting or discomforting. If you experience troubling behaviour from a fellow dater, please notify the event host. Our host will be online throughout the event and easily accessible.
