We've done away with the whistles, name-tags and over the top party trimmings.
Unparalleled service and personable hosts all in an environment - just your speed.
A rising divorce rate and the tendency to marry late have opened up dating possibilities for the 40 plus group like never before.
Men and women who are comfortably settled in their professions have greater resources at their disposal and can spend more on dating.
A fresh alternative to typical events that seem more like a job fair than a relaxed way to connect.
We do not use traditional 'speed dating' offerings such as bells, whistles and name-tags.I work on Wall Street and see men at lunch time, but it seems after work everyone over 40 disappears. The truth is, at our age, dating does have a competitive edge to it. But it’s much greater when you hit your late thirties and older. Meanwhile, what they bring to the table isn’t comparable. We’ve talked about the profile some men write where they describe their ideal woman and it sounds like an extension or replica of themselves. Those of us who have done online dating for a long period of time know that when you hit a certain age, the responses just dry up.Here’s why: Because there are fewer and fewer available, healthy men to go around. That’s when the hunt starts to become more…aggressive. We end up in bad relationship after bad relationship because we chose to ignore what was in front of us. We don’t like ourselves - Shame can be a powerful anchor. Somebody said it in the comments recently and they were right on the mark. If someone is surrounded by other single friends, then there’s nothing compelling them to look past that particular circle. As human beings, I believe we need that external validation and connection.Everything was so much easier than I thought and the company is extremely well-organized. I got to talk to both the hosts and they were soooooo calm and on top of things. This event rocked, you guys are the best and have delievered once again. The people are friendly and the event itself was enjoyable. The hosts were helpful and the dates were very attentive and responsive. I've been to many of your events and they're always well run. I always enjoy the events and have recommended them to friends over the last year or so. I was pretty nervous about coming to it, as I've gone to other speed-dating events and they were a disaster!
