1. Meet Other Singles, Guaranteed
We were founded to create and share events where single people could easily network and establish a connection with someone special. The speed dating events that we regularly list on feature single professionals exclusively. They are also grouped by ten-year age ranges so that you can meet people with whom you share similar lifestyles and interests.

2. Dates and Discounted Drinks? Not a Bad Combination
Frequently, the singles events that we list on features food and drinks specials. If you go to your local bar, you might overspend on drinks and food for yourself or another person. But when you sign up for speed dating through, you can treat yourself to delicious discounted food and drink while enjoying the company of other single professionals.

3. Meet More People—Without the Pressure
If you want to meet several other singles in a night without feeling exhausted, speed dating is for you. Blind dates might allow you to spend a lot of time with one person, but if you don’t hit it off right away, there’s bound to be some awkwardness and embarrassment, or you might feel pressure to keep seeing each other. Alternatively, if you go to a crowded bar or event, you might meet several people, but the atmosphere can be distracting.
In speed dating, there’s a happy medium. Going on a series of mini-dates means that you can meet several people in a fun, low-pressure atmosphere that is focused enough for you to get to know each other and learn whether you might be a match. You get to decide whether you want to see someone after the event, not at the end of the meeting. That way, there’s no pressure or rejection—just plenty of possibilities for connection!

4. No More Blind Date Horror Stories
Most single people have at least one story about a blind date gone wrong. While they make for funny stories later, these experiences can be painful while they’re happening. At speed dating events, however, the entire event is facilitated by the coordinator, so you don’t have to agonize over choosing the right restaurant or activity. And since the night moves along quickly, you won’t feel stuck in an awkward situation.

5. Nothing to Lose, Everything to Gain
At the speed dating events that we list on, 2/3 of participants meet at least one person in whom they’re interested who also wants to see them again. We don’t know about you, but to us, those sound like odds worth betting on.
If you don’t get a match—don’t worry. Finding love takes time! features several events each month where singles like you can meet up and enjoy each other’s company. If you don’t meet someone on your first try, keep an eye on the mailing list for frequent updates about singles events in Philadelphia.
