happens if I don't get a match on my first spin?
A Although between 60-75% of the participants
get at least one match, it may happen that you will not have
a match on your first spin. But hey, if you're looking for a
long-lasting relationship with someone special, you'll want to
be introduced to many potential dates before you find the right
one who shares your aspirations, goals, and interests. If you
don't meet someone right away, you still get to create new friendships
and potentially one of the people you made friends with on a
spin might introduce you to their circle of friends. It's all
about networking. The more singles you meet the better are your
chances to find that special person. The very reasonable fee
of spin dating allows you to spin-date as often as you want.
Q I would
like to spin with a younger crowd. Can I join any age group?
A Because every person fills out a questionnaire
and indicates the age group he/she is interested in, you’ll
most likely spin with people within a 10 years age range, often
less than that. For example, if you're a man, 40 years old, and
would like to meet women in their late 20's , this would be almost
impossible through spin dating, because women in their late 20's
usually want to date people five years older or five years younger
than their age. Some spins are created for a bigger age difference
of ages. You need to enquire about those.
My experience as a Dating Coach over the last three years proves that
the age is hardly ever relevant when meeting the right person. I can clearly
say that many of those people who are looking for younger mates often SELECT
someone in their age or even older! Attraction does not depend on chronological
age, and compatibility is more expected between people of a similar age group
than where the age gap is very big. Flexibility on your part about the age
factor will contribute a lot to your success in meeting the right person.
An article was
published in the Wall Street Journal, saying that men nowadays need to pay
attention to the fact that there are fewer younger women available to older
men than there used to be 20-30 years ago (the reason being that the birth
rate decreased and a smaller pool of young women is attractive to more men
in older age groups). This means that while 30 years ago men
easily date a woman five, ten and even fifteen years younger than them, nowadays
their choice is narrowed down to meeting women just a few years younger or
in their age or older, because the same pool of younger women will be targeted
by more men, and most probably, more easily accessed by men in their age
group. What this means is that if you're a man, say 35-45 and you want to
start a family, you may be wasting your time looking for
a woman 10 years younger. It is more realistic to meet people a few years
younger or older, and focus on dating someone you connect with, than it is
to search for someone you can have kids with.
Q I have
booked a spot for the spin three weeks ago, but was not included.
A The decision who gets on a spin is made with
your best interest in our mind. Say there are 30 requests to
spin on a certain date. We can only include 16 or max 20 people.
That means the other 10people will have to wait for the next
date. The reasons why you may or may not be included in a certain
spin usually depend on the information you submitted in the questionnaire.
For example, if you're looking for a non-smoker, you'll be excluded
from a spin where most people are smokers, etc. We also want
you to meet eight new potential dates every time you spin. So
sometimes you may be excluded from a spin because you have already
met someone. Also, don't wait until the last minute. Send your
questionnaire and your registration fee now – it will ensure
you get on a spin on the first available and suitable date for
Q How can
I get to know a person in 8-10 minutes which is the time assigned
for each introduction?
A You can't! It takes a very long time to get
to know a person... The spin merely provides an opportunity for
you to find out if you feel attracted to someone. And if you
are, you may want to ask them the things that are of major importance
to you, such as if they smoke, have a pet (if you're allergic
to fur for example) etc. Most people feel that the time is sufficient
to know if they want to meet someone again or not. Once you are
informed of a match you will probably want to talk to the person
on the phone once or twice before meeting with them anyway, so
you'll be able to get more insight into their personality.
Q How can
I be sure that I get to meet people according to the specifications
in my questionnaire?
A We use the questionnaire as a guide, and we
ask you to indicate which three factors are the most important
to you. We try to go with these indications depending on the
database for your age group at the time you apply. You should
not expect to meet your ideal type times 8... This is unrealistic,
since you are one of a group where the other people have also
each their own set of preferences. However if you are fairly
flexible and open minded and your questionnaire reflects this
then you should be able to meet a lot of people with similar
background, interests and goals. The more flexible you are the
easier it is for us to place you in various spins, so insist
only on what is of major importance to you.
