Online Speed Dating - DC, NYC & Boston

How It Works

The times, they are a changing...

Every aspect of our lives has changed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. That includes how we dating online and meet new people.

That's where online and video speed dating comes in.

All you need to participate is a laptop or phone camera and an internet connection. (We strongly advise you use a desktop device for better quality.

HOW WE'RE DIFFERENT THAN ZOOM SPEED DATING EVENTS:

  • Events last about 30-45 minutes. (Unlike Zoom events that can take up to 1.5 - 2 hrs.)

  • Attendees select yes or no after each round

  • Platform tabulates matches so less chance of errors

  • Match emails sent within 3 hours of event

  • Attendees don't show up then log out immediately if they don't see anyone they like. (Frequently happens with Zoom events.)

  • All interactions and speed dates are private

HOW IT WORKS:

  • You'll register for an event online and will be required to give your email and phone number when registering.

  • PLEASE MAKE SURE TO REGISTER WITH YOUR CORRECT EMAIL ADDRESS AND PHONE NUMBER.

  • An email will be sent ONE HOUR before the event with log in instructions and a unique URL.

  • Each URL is unique to prevent sharing. If two people use the same link, it will automatically block both participants from the event.

  • You MUST log on using that URL at least 10 minutes before the advertised start time.  This is very important. If you log on only a couple minutes before, you will not be admitted into the event.

  • We do not have the ability to admit late arrivals into the event.

  • You'll meet each potential match for 3-5 minutes depending on size of the group.

  • After each round, you will select whether your date was a match.

  • After your last round, you will have the chance to review your matches and edit them. Once submitted, selections can not be changed.

  • 3 hours after the event, you will receive an email letting you know if you have matches,

  • Emails are sent if an attendee does or does not have matches.

  • If you don't have at least 5 dates, you will be given a code to register for another event for free.
