Some men ( maybe many men) don’t like the idea of Speed Dating
We understand. Traditional Speed dating, where you are made to meet someone without knowing who they are, and then move on to meet the next person after 5 minutes, is not our style, and I know our male members are not comfortable attending an event like that.
At OzMatch, a Japanese and Australian matchmaking agency, we will meet and talk with you face to face through an online consultation and we will get to know your personality, your lifestyle, and your requirements for your ideal partner.
Our new male members often say that they weren’t expecting to be able to talk to us in person. I think that is one of our unique qualities. We tend to attract Australian men who want a personal touch and not a mechanical service.
So why does OzMatch host speed dating?
There is only one reason. OzMatch members have lost their chance to meet new people because of COVID 19 and some feel depressed so we want them to have a fun evening and find potential partners.
The Benefits of joining Japanese and Australian Matchmaking Speed Dating
Benefit for Free Basic Members
You may wonder what kind of men and women are registered with Japanese and Australian matchmaking agencies? And you may ask yourself the question “Are they real?”
Anyone can put a fake photo on a dating site. Through our speed dating event you get to see and meet real people. It’s a great opportunity to interact with our Japanese female members. You will meet 10 real-life members in just 60 minutes. What a small investment of time for a great experience.
Benefit for Executive Members
Some executive members want to know more about a person’s personality and appearance before their first meeting (we call it an OMIAI). No matter how much your matchmaking adviser explains who she is to them, sometimes they can get more information in person by having a short conversation.
Speed dating is an opportunity to obtain information that cannot be obtained from a profile alone.
Why our Matching Success Rate is higher than any Online Dating Site
10 single men who are Australian or living in Australia and 10 Japanese single ladies got together each event. And four or five couples are born at each event. Fantastic!
Within 2 weeks, one of the couples reported to us that they entered an exclusive relationship. You might wonder how can two people become so close in such a short time?.
The reason is because OzMatch is different from any other dating service. All our members are truly looking for a long term relationship with trust, respect, and caring. They are not looking for just a friend or one night stands.
All our Japanese female members want it, too. OzMatch members are looking for the same thing, therefore when they meet they click.
Right Time, Right People, Right Opportunity
OzMatch has about 400 members ( half of them are Australian single men, half are Japanese single women) now and I often wondered why they joined OzMatch. I also often worried about how I could find the right person for him/her.
After three years of matchmaking experiences, I understood that they joined at the right time to meet the right person. I don’t need to try finding someone for them because they individually join at the perfect time to meet the perfect partner. Call it destiny or call it luck it just works.
All I need to do is organise the events to make it happen.
The chance to meet your future Japanese partner, that’s OzMatch Virtual Speed Dating!

What Japanese women said about OzMatch Speed Dating Events
A Success Story – Garry and Hiromi
Garry and Hiromi met at the OzMatch Speed Dating Event.
There was an Australian new free basic male member who was introduced to OzMatch by his friend. His name is Garry. Garry was 58 years old, being single for many years.
He didn’t know much about OzMatch. He registered with OzMatch out of curiosity. That’s all.
I soon sent an email to Garry to join our online speed dating event because one Australian male attendee cancelled and I had to find replacement in a hurry. It was only three days before the event. He said “OK”.
Who would have thought this became a game changer for him.
On the day of the Online Speed Dating Event, Hiromi was very nervous and she kept thinking about how she could run away. She created so many excuses not to join the event in her mind.
On that evening, her internet reception was very bad and she could hardly talk to any men even though she was given a total of 50 minutes to talk to all of the men (5 minutes each).
She mustered up the courage to join in, but she couldn’t leave a good impression with the male attendees due to her poor internet connection. Poor Hiromi.
After the event, the two of them went on an OMIAI ( a formal date), and within the next three and a half months, they completed their journey with OzMatch.
They are at a stage where they both know they are committed to each other and are moving towards the next step of marriage.
What is OzMatch Virtual Speed Dating is like?
There are many members in OzMatch, a Japanese and Australian Matchmaking Agency, who have never participated in speed dating events because they don’t like the idea of meeting people that way.
For those members, here is an explanation of how OzMatch Speed Dating works.
The virtual meeting room is the event venue
Due to the international scale of OzMatch’s speed dating event, it’s impossible for all participants to get together in one place. Therefore, we adopt a virtual format using Zoom, an online conference system.
At the start time, you will enter the meeting room provided by your host, OzMatch. There will be 8 Australian men and 8 Japanese women, and your hosts (OzMatch CEO Misao and her husband Sean).
This is what it looks like on the screen.
Your hosts will say hello and explain the event rules, but that will only take about ten minutes. Everyone should already be thrilled, so we’ll start the speed dating and put that excitement to use.
A private room is provided for you
Speed dating event is an event where male and female couples chat one-on-one. It’s not like an online workshop or seminar where all participants chat together. So your host, OzMatch, will provide 8 private rooms for 8 couples.
When the private room is ready, a sign will appear on your screen.
There will be just you and her. No one else can hear your conversation, nor can you two be seen by anyone else. Likewise, you cannot see or hear the other couples either. You have 8 minutes in each session.
Repeat the process and you will end up speed-dating with 8 Japanese female member.
10 Tips for getting the Best Results from the Online Speed Dating Event
There are a few rules and regulations that apply to virtual speed dating sponsored by our Japanese and Australian matchmaking agency.
So we will send you step-by-step instructions for the event. All of the steps are designed to help you enjoy the event to the fullest and get the maximum results.
Our past participants said that our 10 tips helped them a lot to have a great time with Japanese ladies.
The occasion is a once-in-a-lifetime encounter 一期一会
A Japanese proverb originating from the tea ceremony suggests that when attending a tea ceremony, both the host and guest should be sincere to each other, knowing that the occasion is a once-in-a-lifetime encounter that will never be repeated.
OzMatch’s Speed Dating is truly a once-in-a-lifetime encounter.
No matter who you are paired with, face each other with sincerity, knowing that those five minutes are a once-in-a-lifetime encounter that will never be repeated. Spending five minutes with someone who has the same goal in mind will be a wonderful experience.
