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 $20, you get admission for one to your choice of speed-dating events with Dating Parties, held at either the Q-Lounge in the InterContinental Dallas in Addison or Blue Mesa Grill in Fort Worth.
Dating Parties takes the woes out of wooing with specially designed soirees where 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. Dating Parties regularly schedules frequent new shindigs according to participant interest in order to suit every suitor, with a handful of upcoming events set in both Dallas and Fort Worth. Participants can join up with their desired age group, with ranges such as 21–29, 25–35, and 31–41 to avoid dangerously unfunny sitcom parallels. After a singles meet-and-greet at 6:30 p.m., ladies settle in 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 sweetheart-seekers make mutual matches, then their 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.
