The Top 3 Phoenix Speed Dating Companies

The Best Arizona Speed Dating Companies

Why is dating so hard?!

Where is the best place to meet other singles?


These are the questions I hear all the time as an Arizona matchmaker and dating coach. Dating is not a one-size-fits-all approach, which is why I recommend trying everything from matchmaking and online dating to speed dating. When it comes to Phoenix speed dating companies, there are many to choose from, but only a few that are worth trying.

Based on Google and Yelp reviews, here is a list of the top 3 Phoenix dating companies:

  1. Relish

Unlike traditional speed dating with nametags, announcers, and all the bells and whistles, Relish creates an environment that’s more low-key and casual. 

What Sets Relish Apart

“We think the best relationships are forged when we are comfortable, relaxed and free of pressure. Preferring instead to think of the evening as a casual night out where one can truly be themselves. We do not use traditional ‘speed dating’ offerings such as bells, whistles and name-tags. Instead we focus on creating an atmosphere conducive to meeting others; a great venue, a personable host and a staff to assist.”

This classy yet casual atmosphere is what makes Relish one of the best Phoenix speed dating companies.

What You Can Expect

Upon arrival, you find your event host who will assist you with setting up your scorecard for the night. The scorecard is to help you keep track of those you were interested in and are interested in meeting again. As soon as all the daters arrive, the speed dating part of the event begins.

Throughout the event, the ladies remain seated and the gentlemen rotate from one table to the next every five to six minutes. The host will let the gentlemen know when their time is up and guide them to the next table.

As you meet each date, take note of who you would like to see again and at the end of the event, give your scorecard to the host. Results will be calculated by the staff and you will be contacted the next day with your matches (name and email address). And you both can take it from there.

  1. MyCheekyDate

 Their tagline, “sophisticated simplicity” pretty much says it all. Similar to Relish, MyCheekyDate provides a casual night out atmosphere.

A reporter for LA Talk Radio.com said, “I walked through the venue without even noticing the tables of daters; events are so chic and low key you might just walk right by.”

What Sets MyCheekyDate Apart

 Are you ready to mingle and match UK style?

 MyCheekyDate was brought over directly from the UK, so it’s American speed dating with a British touch. Believing ‘less is more,’ their goal is to create a relaxed, comfortable experience with a group of like-minded daters. Everyone who attends is screened to ensure a high quality, enjoyable experience, making MyCheekyDate one of the top-rated Phoenix speed dating companies.

What You Can Expect

Once you choose the event you want to attend, you purchase tickets online beforehand. On the night of the event, go to the venue and when all daters arrive, the fun begins.
Event hosts will with your MyCheekyDate ‘Date-Mate’ scorecard. The women are shown to their tables and remain seated throughout the event. The men move from one table to the next every six to seven minutes.

If someone strikes your fancy, you jot it down on your scorecard and event coordinators will notify you with your matches within 24 hours.

When the speed dating portion of the evening is over, you are welcome to stay and socialize.

  1. Pre-Dating

As the world’s largest speed dating company since 2001, Pre-Dating has events in over 70 US cities – also making it one of the top phoenix speed dating companies.

What Sets Pre-Dating Apart

Aside from being credible and established, Pre-Dating is the only national speed dating company focused on single professionals. With a 70 percent match rate, they are confident in their ability to help singles find love. This is why they offer a Match Guarantee – if you don’t find a match, you can attend the next event free of charge.

What You Can Expect

First, you must pre-register. This ensures there will be an equal number of men and women at the event. Pre-Dating events are held at private, upscale venues that include free appetizers and drink specials.

Upon arrival you will receive a name tag and Match Sheet scorecard. In the span of 2 hours you will meet between 6 and 12 single professionals. These are organized in 6-minute “pre-dates.”

As you meet people you’re interested in, you mark who you would like to see again on your Match Sheet. At the end of the event you enter your selections on Pre-Dating.com. Your results will be available in 24 hours.

Predating emails matches to each participant and the rest is up to you!

One last thing to keep in mind: When you’re researching events to attend, make sure the number of men and women is proportionate. The last thing you want is to go to an event filled with 20 women and 3 men or vice versa.

When the crowd is in their 20s, sometimes they can’t get enough girls, whereas when the crowd is in their mid-40s, getting enough men can be a challenge. As the group ages, most speed dating companies find it difficult to find enough men to attend. I can’t even count the number of times these companies have reached out asking my men to go!

Now, that we’ve got the where it’s time to work on the how. If you’re looking for speed dating tips and tricks, I’m here to help make sure you’re prepared, confident and ready to mingle!
