LGBTQ Modern Speed Dating - W4W Night
W4W Night - The LGBTQ community is so unique and versatile, so we have divided the LGBTQ night into two separate nights per month, so that the right interests align in the same evening, enhanicng your odds with a match.  M4M and W4W.  M4M Night will be on the first Wednesday of every month, except weeks with holidays.  W4W Night will be on the third Wednesday of every month, except weeks with holidays. Must be 21+ to attend, as complimentary wine and champagne are served.  Must present ID at check in.
Dating doesn't have to be awkward, and with Modern Speed Dating, we have created a fresh alternative to gay dating. No more awkward one on one, interview style speed dating with whistles or over-the-top party trimmings typically found at singles events. Meet and mingle in an atmosphere that is at once casual, comfortable and chic!
Much like a private club, not every dater is for us or you. If you meet a dater that makes you feel uncomfortable, simply mark it on your GayDate 'Scorecard' and we'll say 'No thank you' in the future so you don't have to.


Modern Speed Dating is a comfortable, sophisticated approach to Gay Dating in Charlotte. Preferring a 'less is more' environment devoid of typical event trappings. Meeting your special someone shouldn't be anything but a comfortable and relaxed experience. Creating a private club atmosphere where you can be comfortable is our goal. This is where being lovely has it's perks! On the night of the event, go the venue at the published start time, have a drink and mingle before the event begins.  After everyone has arrived and acquainted with the process, the event will begin.  Any late comers will still be welcome. Our hosts will assist you with your GayDate 'Scorecard' and get you acquainted with the process. Flirty and fun, this is just the beginning. Simply jot down your potential GayDate 'Date-Mate" at the bottom of your Scorecard throughtout the evening and we'll take care of the rest. For those who garner matches, you will be notified via e-mail within 24 hours of the event ending. The event may come to an end but the night has just begun. Feel free to stay as long as you would like to mingle further. All we need are the GayDate 'Scorecards' to determine if love is in the air for you.

SPEED DATING FAQ
 
Why is Modern Speed Dating different? Most speed dating parties are like being at a job fair, complete with stop watches, whistles and a footie captain yelling “times up” in your ****! We do things a bit differently. We don’t find anything romantic about interrogation style meet and greets, microphones and whistles – so we don’t use them!
What type of people can I expect to meet? We intend to draw a crowd that is intelligent and amusing, sophisticated and adventurous, while always being classy. Daters that don’t like to settle and tend to set the trend rather than follow it. We are defined by our venue and our crowd reflects such.
How do I reserve my place? Simply register right here online via Eventbrite and you're all set! No paper tickets are required. You will be sent a confirmation from us and your name will be noted on our Guest List.  Just bring your ID.
Do you screen your speed daters?Those that tend to see the good in everything and everyone - are just what we and our daters are looking for. If we don't think a dater is someone that fellow daters would get on with - we'll respectfully decline service and reserve the right to do so.  That said, tickets are purchased online, so they may attend an event or two before we get a bad vibe, but if someone makes you uncomfortable, notate it on your GayDate 'Scorecard' and we'll take note.  If one person gets more than one, they won't be welcome to attend a future event.
What happens if the event is sold out? We wish we could accommodate everyone! Unfortunately, the fun goes quick! You can send an email to to be added to the wait list or book a future event.  Also, it is a good idea to keep checking back on our website as sometimes reservations become available at the last minute from last minute cancellations.
What time should I show up for the Event?Doors open at 8 pm but the event does not start on time.  Please try to avoid doing anything unsafe in your attempt to arrive to the event on time - we do like to wait for all participants to arrive. This may cause an event to start late but we feel this is a perfect opportunity to chat with the hosts, mingle with familiar or unfamiliar faces, have a lovely refreshment and settle in.  Once all or the majority have arrived, we will begin the speed dating.
What is a GayDate ‘Date-Mate’?A ‘Date-Mate’ means you have a match! You checked each other on your scorecards and your phone number will be exchanged with this person within 24 hours after the event. Only daters that garner matches are notified within 24 hours after the event.
How long will I chat with my Prospective ‘Date-Mate’? With Modern Speed Dating, you'll be conversing in small groups of 4 - 6 men or women for 15 - 20 minutes.  Being that we are LGBTQ, this will enhance your odds at meeting more people at the event, but there is a good chance that you will not meet everyone except before or after the event during the open mingle.
So Little time; So much to say. Don’t worry. In today’s world, we tend to know in a matter of minutes if we ‘click’ with someone. You can also chat further with your prospective ‘Date-Mate’ during open mingle after the event. Just have fun and go with it!How will I know I have any GayDate ‘Date-Mates’ and how do I contact my GayDate ‘Date-Mate’? For daters that garner matches, you will be notified via email of your ‘Date-Mate’s’ first name and phone number within 24 hours of the event ending. Your ‘Date-Mate’ will also receive your name and number.
Is Food included with my ticket price?From time to time, we may provide light nibbles for the guests or have an event sponsored. This is at our discretion and varies with each event.  We suggest eating before you arrive.
Are drinks included with my ticket price?Yes, complimentary wine and champagne will be served during the event and afterward during the open mingle.  Must be 21+ to attend and ID will be verified during check in.
How long does the event last? The length of an event is based on the number of daters in attendance. Generally, our events last between 2 and 3 hours, not including the open mingle afterward.
What Happens when the Event is over? That‘s up to you! Most Daters say this is when the fun really starts! Feel free to stay and mingle for as long as you want.
I’m shy - Can I come with my Friends? Bring your friends, have some fun! We will happily accommodate all ticketed members of your party. If you would like to be grouped together, please let us know but keep in mind groups switch up in a way that you meet new people, so you will get split up. We do ask all members of your party to make a separate reservation so that we can have everyones contact info in advance, for the 'Scorecards' and for "Date-Mate' matches.
How Many People Will I Meet? Modern Speed Dating events vary in size.  We anticipate you meeting at least 14 people.
Can I pay without doing it through the Internet? Register/Info Payment can only be accepted via Eventbrites because of their secure and encrypted checkout systems. If you have questions, please feel free to contact us directly at 404.668.4026 or .
What Should I Wear? There is no dress code but we suggest you Dress to Impress!
Will I be photographed or filmed? You will absolutely not be photographed or filmed without your prior consent.
What if I don't have the ability to act like a lady or gentleman?We have a zero tolerance for any rudeness - of any sort. We strive to attract great daters and create a wonderful experience. Behavior short of lovely will result in a dater being banned from future events. This may upset some but we feel our daters as a whole appreciate the extra effort and we hope you do too.
Can you tell me more about Engel & Volkers and why it's the venue?Engel & Volkers is a boutique real estate firm, with an aviation and yachting division.  Our venue is modern and chic, comfortable and inviting.  We have a beautiful Uptown Shop and utilize the space as a venue when we're not meeting real estate clientele.
