Speed dating in new york
I signed up for a Monday night event with Speed NY Dating (because what else was I going to do on a Monday night?), and found myself in the restaurant of the Hyatt Union Square.At the end of the event, you pick the top people you were interested in and return the card.Should there be any mutual matches, the organizers of the event will put you two in touch.It's as simple as selecting your package, telling us your preferences and allowing us to arrange the evening. We are regularly approached by venues looking to have the cheekiest in the world of dating to their spots.We say yes to a very few - limiting it to locales that are at once casually hip and romantically inspiring. As a reporter for LA Talk said, “ I walked through the venue without even noticing the tables of daters; events are so chic and low key you might just walk right by.” We couldn’t have said it better ourselves. Much like a private club, not every dater is for us.We don't find anything romantic about whistles, name-tags or over-the-top party trimmings typically found at singles events so we have done away with them.Creating an atmosphere that is at once casual and comfortable. For those that prefer the same simplified experience in matchmaking we offer our 'Date Nights' free of contracts or commitments.
But that’s how it is in any social/dating situation, and I’m sure there’s a Pink Power Ranger out there who would swoon over his high kick.
Inside, it looked more or less like a restaurant preparing itself for regular dinner service (dim lighting, candlelit tables), rather than the morose, clinical vision I had concocted of name tags, clipboards, and other trappings of business conferences.
People filed in one at a time and checked in with the hostess, who cleared their name from a list and handed them a card for keeping track of dates that night.
And worse comes to worst, if it’s awful, you know that in five minutes, it will all be over -- unlike that horrific Tinder date you went on last week that lasted an hour and a half because you were too polite to leave. With Speed NY Dating, people are limited to the age bracket 24 to 38.
Surprisingly, there were more men than women -- most of whom were young, professional, and new to New York.
