Registration for Some Demographic Categories is Now Full.
Some restrictions are in place.

Due to an imbalance in registration demographics, we are having to cut off registration for some categories of people. Please read this carefully.

If you:

then in order to register, you must also refer another new speed dater who does NOT meet that description. This means that, for example, straight men would need to refer a balancing companion, as would people of any gender who require their dates to be bisexual or pansexual. The person you refer can date separately and is not assumed to be your partner.

To way oversimplify, this maintains the ratio of straight men to straight women. Of course, not everybody is straight, and not everybody is a man or a woman. So we have the more general (but also more complicated) category: non-man-seeking-man-seeker-seekers. So this policy maintains the ratio of NMSMSSers to non-NMSMSSers, which from experience we have learned is one of the most important factors in how many people at a Poly Speed Dating event get to spend as much of their time speed dating as they can.

As you can see, we're still working on putting this into clear words. Sorry about that.

If you want to attend, and are affected by this policy, then follow these steps:

  1. Find a friend who doesn't fall under the restriction. Our apologies, but friends who have already registered do not count.
  2. Have your friend register, and have them list you as a reference and give you their registration ID.
  3. Register yourself. Cite your friend in the "remarks" field so we know who your balance is and so don't have you date someone you already know. Include their registration ID. We will then honor your registration.

We are sorry to have to do this, but it is in the interest of making sure everyone who has already registered gets a full complement of dates. Registering as a group is still okay. And if in the end you can't join us for this one, we still plan to have more events in the future!

Again, sorry for the restriction.

Continue to registration....

Note that even a gay woman friend helps a lot since such a high proportion of our women daters are either gay or bi (usually 75%). For that matter, a gay male friend would count too.
