Or often I would get texts about the events that already had happened. One of the last events was at one of the dodgiest pubs in Parramatta where the host was very unfriendly and unwelcome.
Questions & Answers
Have joined Sydney Speed Dating but hoping another company will start up and fill the gap Fast Impressions couldn't. It's okay to go occasionally. I went to the first meeting about 7 years ago and to the second one recently I don't date much as you can see. If you wait till the day before the event, the price is much cheaper from half price to about a quarter of full price, especially for men, a species always in demand since many die young at war or because they are married: In the two meetings I have attended there was nobody I felt strikingly interesting and I had the feeling I was attending a job interview with all the other applicants also present.
Having said that, nobody found me interesting either.
Hence, if your friends are busy and you need to talk to someone, other than your psychologist, you can always book last minute to meet uninteresting people who will also find you uninteresting. One could say that, at the end of the day or night , it's a 'win-win' situation if you pay only a quarter of the price. I am convinced after attending a number of events over the last 2 years that fast impressions is an elaborate scam.
I attended an event one month ago, once again they were short of women so a few guys had to miss dates. Just to test the session i selected all 8 women as matches to see what response i would get. The next day I only got 1 match. Now fast impressions only share email addresses of your chosen match no phone numbers. I emailed the supposed match but never got a reply via email.. The highlight for me for the event was the finger food! The dates were quite ordinary.
Don't waste your money.

Will not use again. I have been attending Fast Impressions regularly for 15 months and have been to many of their events. I believe that they generally run a good night and compared to other dating places it is very good value for money. The problem I have found is the quality of the females who attend. I find this very rude on behalf of the ladies that go and sometimes you have to wonder why do they attend such events? There should be more of an emphasis on the females doing the work, such as contacting their matches.
This way it might sort out the genuine women from the non-genuine ones. I have been other single events to and it is the same where the women seem to be there for more a girls night out. This is very disappointing for the men as they to me seem to be all genuinely looking for a relationship. Sort your house out Fast Impressions! After vowing to give up 5 months ago due to low female turn out and cancelled events I stupidly decided to sign up to two more events these past two weeks.
I understand if girls tend to be more flaky and bail at the last minute, but it's always the women who don't turn up, so in future book more gals then guys, and maybe let the women sit out at the bar for once. And while you're at it, how about giving every poor person who got shafted a free entry into another one of your events, or at least a discount? At the least then they might give you a second chance before they decide your events are a crock of shlt! Fast Impressions have really gone down hill in the last 6 months.
Fast Impressions was acquired by Plenty Of Fish last year and has since really gone down hill. I have been doing speed dating with them for a couple of years now and I have really noticed the difference. There use to be couples a night, these days you are lucky to get 8, and they charge the same; also most were called that day to fill up numbers. The venues are quite terrible these days, many quite far out of CBD or dodgy quiet bars that people never go to. They organise horrible themed events recently. The popular ones like Uni Educated and Professionals are seldomly run while they hold heaps of unpopular events like Vegetarian, Slender Women, Christian, Tradies, Asian Women, and most of them are for late 40s and early 50s.
I am getting calls from them every week these days to fill up spaces for age groups that are decades above what I am at. If you run popular events people would book in themselves, and you wouldn't have to go around desparetely cold calling people to attend events that are not in their age category. I have decided to switch companies to Sydney Speed date unless Fast impressions gets their act together. But this was Rubbish rubbish rubbish. Dont waste your money The theme was fitness singles it should have been called fat singles Unequivocally a barrage of false advertising by fast impressions.
This speed dating nonsense is only for desperate people, i looked at their website they proclaim on an add in a video showing more than 10 guys and ten girls in a fancy restaurant with 3 course meals and dates. A current affair should be more honest as well because they rambled on about how fancy this was. Anways i joined and booked for a fitness singles, when i got there to the at the park royal parramatta it was 1. Some crummy finger foods just some raw veggies 2. Then they were short on 4 women the host had to fill in 4. There was only one woman who was fit the rest looked fat and ugly 5. It should have been fat singles not fit singles 6.
I attended again and it was worse 3 girls turned up instead of the promised ten. Fast impressions should take that stupid add off their site because its misleading. Do not go to the themed ones because they are the worst I noticed that you get invites for about 29 to 39 dollars, they call it half price..
Anyways i wouldnt even go if they paid me i talk to plenty of girls, i dnt have to pay some low life scum of a company to meet up with other people who are unfit, unattractive and false advertising by fast impressions. Pretty sure they spend all their effort on advertising instead of organising.
Today's LivingSocial: Fast Impressions
I've attended two events and both advertised lots of games to get you mingling. At both all that happened was your were given a card to match up with someone else's and no instructions on what to do with it. I got talking with guys who told me they were just there to make up the numbers as they were friends with the organiser.
A friend also told me she had previously been to one of their events only to discover not only were most of the guys the organisers friends they were also married.
She took them to the office of fair trading over it. This company is a massive rip off. You might meet someone to hook up with for the night but then he's going home to his wife!!!! Save yourself the trouble. On the night, only 9 showed up, 3 of whom had been offered free spots to make up numbers and did not have any university qualifications or fit the criteria. The male host with extremely bad body odour joined in to make up numbers and seemed to forget that he was being paid to run the night.

Many speeddating organisers spell speed date events differently and each speed dater has a unique style with special prices that vary from speed dater to speed data. Speed dating has grown to become the new flavour for professional singles, who have limited time for socialising, so meeting lots of guys or girls in one night is extremely time saving and justifiably advantageous.
The venues are usually centrally located and very stylish. The speed dating hosts also promote singles parties with different themes including dinners, dances, and other creative ideas involving prizes, giveaways, prize draws and competitions.
