We can show you how to have fun meeting up to 20 singles in one FUN evening!
Our speed dating events are designed for New York singles to have a relaxed, fun and sociable way to meet each other in an otherwise hectic city.
It works because speed dating allows single people to meet each other in person, which is the only way to see if there is real chemistry between two people. Every 5 minutes we will ring a bell and a new date will begin (men rotate while women remain seated).
The next day you will log into our website, where you will see a list of everyone you met at our event.

It was a refreshing way to spend an evening on the weekend.
Your event allowed me to meet more women in one evening than I get to meet all year round. Tom, 45, Hempstead, NY I met my husband at one of your speed dating events about 3 years ago in Great Neck. I've been on two dates with her so far and really had a blast.To help right this imbalance, some seniors are borrowing a strategy from younger generations and trying speed dating in hopes of again feeling that spark of attraction.“It’s hard meeting a man who’s single,” said Sandy Camero, 69, who attended a recent event at the Igo Branch Library designed for seniors who wanted to meet new people.“They’re either too old and don’t ever want to do anything, or, if they’re my age, they’re looking for someone younger.”While we as a society often obsess over the physical needs of the elderly, we rarely talk about the emotional desires for friendship, intimacy, even love and sex that don’t evaporate upon receipt of an AARP membership card.“You’ll hear a family say, ‘But we fill grandma’s time,’” said Kelley Kelch, who leads the Older Adult Ministry at Oak Hills Presbyterian Church. But no one wants to talk about the other needs grandma might have.”In addition to her church position, Kelch has hosted two senior speed dating events designed to help folks ages 65 to 85 meet one another for companionship.(Brittany Greeson/San Antonio Express-News via AP) MAGS OUT ...more SAN ANTONIO (AP) - Dating at any age can be stressful, exhausting, even hazardous to one’s self-esteem.
