Arta Gallery's weathered brick walls, adorned with cutting-edge artwork, contain an evening of new connections for singles aged 25 and older on Monday, December 31, starting at 8:30 p.m. Before a complimentary champagne toast at midnight, revellers enjoy a swank spread of hors d'oeuvres, DJ-fuelled dancing, and interactive entertainment.
The bartender at the Riva Supper Lounge notices something peculiar about the patrons he's been serving. All of the men are between the ages 35 and 45, and all of the women are between the ages 30 and 45. It's not a coincidence; it's a speed-dating event hosted by 25dates.com. Since 2002, the site's staff has created age-specific dating events like this for straight, gay, and lesbian singles all across Canada. At a typical event, they set up attendees with 25 one-on-one dates, each lasting three minutes. After each mini-date, participants write "yes" or "no" behind the ID number of the person they just met. 25dates.com then finds mutual matches and exchanges the two parties' contact info. More than 75% of participants find at least one match, a number that has caught the eye of myriad press outlets. If a mutual match can't be found, attendees receive free admission to a future event.
