The events sell out really quick so you have to the use the force to get into this place. I need a housekeeper anyway so what the hell :-) The venue was nice, the dishes they brought out yummy and the drinks super, super strong but what the hell right? We registered and attended an event at bagatelle in west hollywood. We arrived late because of traffic but the hosts were nice and helpful in getting us set up. In the middle they stop for a short break so everyone can catch their breath or make a run for the restroom. :-) I finally managed to book an event with this company. Liked the whole british angle and their relaxed approach I've never been speed dating before but like everyone else, I've seen it in the movies and tv and such. By now the drink is settling in and I am loose as a goose, witty and flirty. Two worked in diff fields and one was out of work but I didn't care. We checked out speed la and thought it looked like the spot to get our groove on.
Not a proponent of online dating, but this was different. They are constantly cancelling their events and changing location at a seconds notice.The context of is "Speedbostondating" and could reflect the theme of the content available on the resource.More IP details of are shown below along with a map location.I live in the Southbay so it's a long drive for me to get to the events so I would love it if they could add more Southbay and OC events. The fun is there you just have to let go and enjoy yourself. She claimed she had no knowledge that we had had events cancelled on us. She made a comment about the fact that we paid less than their regular paying customers and that my friends and I were the only ones who had had that many events cancelled on us. She even sent 2 of us a stock email about how successful they are.The restaurants are top notch, the service the same and fellow daters nice just like me! I asked to speak with a superior to Diana and she refused.Then I get an email, apparently from one of the partners, Jon Laurent. I met some nice guys and met some nice girls for friends. Whether it is better than typical online dating - I am mixed on.
In my opinion he was not sincerely apologetic and basically tried to make me look like I was "bullying" the company by filing a complaint. If you want a fun night out with friends - you should def. My first time there: 4 out of 19 women canceled, so there was some gender imbalance and downtime.
This is absolutely the worst company I have ever dealt with in my entire life. God forbid you have a complaint..totally make you feel like you did something wrong for complaining... Each date was only 3 minutes, and it was too damn loud to have a good conversation. If one picked a random cross-section of women in Santa Monica they would be better-looking than this, but there appears to be a problem of adverse selection, which is to be expected given the total lack of any pre-screening of the participants.
THEN..Jon Laurent would not stop emailing me after I requested that he not. According to the organizers, this always sells out for women months in advance, but men can still sign up until the last minute.
They could fix the gender imbalance by staggering the age ranges to be like women 20-30, men 25-35. We purchased a Living Social deal back in June and have signed up for 3 different events of which all of them have been cancelled. Since this was the 3rd time, I replied to Angela's email informing us of the cancellation.
Been to two locations in LA; one at Beso in Hollywood and the second at STK in West Hollywood. I went alone the first time and the second I thought I would go with two girlfriends. It's super fun to get your make-up touched up before, the hosts were all super accommodating and the attendees fun as well. With this last event, I got in touch with Jessica, who has actually been the only nice person in this whole ordeal. I explained that I was upset by the cancellation and inconvenienced, especially after confirming there were no issues with the events. Diana asked that I explain how I was inconvenienced and how they were unprofessional.
I'm filing a second complaint with the Better Business Bureau on this harassment. My freakonomics-ish theory as to why that happens is that they don't stagger the age ranges.
