Below, we have left our original HurryDate review for your continued reading. This review received its last major update during the month of March 2014.


HurryDate.com is first and foremost a speed dating service. It is a place for singles to find speed dating events and parties being held near them or to participate in online virtual speed dating. HurryDate makes it easy to RSVP to these events and to stay in contact with party goers with whom you have met up with at previous events. Using this speed dating sites RSVP system is the only way to guarantee your spot in an event/party, as HurryDate needs to make sure all dating events have the required number and gender balance of speed daters. You can use HurryDate as a traditional dating site to search and find matches in your area, although this is not its primary function.

HurryDate offers speed dating events in close to one hundred cities across the United States and Canada. Your average speed dating event sponsored through HurryDate has approximately 10 to 15 participating singles. Depending on the party, each short date is between four and six minutes long. Speed dating parties require an equal number of men and women, and usually have a set age range. Some events may also be designed for a specific dating niche, like Christian or Jewish singles. After each short date, you'll discreetly circle a "yes" or "no" next to each person's ID number on your scorecard to indicate if you want to be in touch. At the end of the night, you'll take your scorecard home to enter who you liked into the HurryDate online system. The site will then match you up with who is mutually interested in you. From there, it's up to you to get in touch through HurryDate's mail message system to set up a real date.

If this is your first speed dating event or if you have questions, don’t worry. Before the event starts your host will explain how HurryDate works and will answer any questions you may have.

As you can see, the speed dating events offered by HurryDate are fun and exciting parties, full of real people. The hosts are knowledgeable and professional and are there to make sure everyone meets someone new and has a good time.
