Finding your soul mate is like finding a week-old pizza: it’s rare, ripe with nostalgia, and will leave a strange feeling in your stomach. Feast your heart on a buffet of new romantic possibilities with today’s Groupon: for $18, you get admission for one to your choice of speed-dating events with Dating Parties. All speed-dating events will be held at Belvedere on Uptown Park Boulevard, and each event will cater to different age groups:
- Wednesday, 4/6: women 30–42, men 31–44
- Wednesday, 4/20: women 22–31, men 23–32
- Wednesday, 4/27: women 38–40, men 40–49
- Wednesday, 5/4: women 25–36, men 26–37
Each event will begin with a singles meet-and-greet at 6:30 p.m., followed by speed dating at 7:30 p.m. Dating Parties may add more events, if needed.
Dating Parties takes the woes out of wooing with specially designed soirees at which single professionals can meet for stress-free mingling and potential romance. The company's speed-dating events will help busy singles overcome typical dating hurdles such as 60-hour work weeks, codependent pets, and malfunctioning robot housekeepers using a safe, no-pressure, time-efficient system that brings together up to 15 men and up to 15 women.
Ladies are seated at designated tables and meet with each and every fella for seven minutes apiece, during which they can discuss mutual interests or the likelihood of various apocalyptic scenarios. Participants are equipped with dating cards for making notes and afterward can select up to five potential matches for future dates. If mutual matches are made, then email addresses are shared, forging connections that hopefully flower into successful relationships. In the event that no mutual matches are made, aspiring lovebirds are invited to attend another Dating Parties event, reducing the incentive to loiter outside of divorce courts with fistfuls of chocolates.
