What You’ll Do

Love can happen in an instant. Matchmaker Hugh Hysell is prepared to give you lots of instants—what you do with them is up to you. In his event for gay professionals, Hysell blends facets of speed dating with networking and meet ups. Each attendee will go on several micro dates and will also have the chance to mix and mingle with the whole group.

  • Eight Dates in a Flash
    Each attendee goes on eight six-minute speed dates, meeting eligible bachelors in their age group (22–38 or 39–54). If both halves of a pair sense some chemistry, Hysell connects them for future outings.

  • Roam the Crowd
    Three structured mingling sessions encourage all participants to mingle regardless of age group, encouraging additional love connections, future business contacts, or friendships.

Your Host

Hugh Hysell Hugh Hysell

Hugh Hysell’s has been busy. Since its inception more than a decade ago, the site has organized more than 2,000 gay events in New York (that’s roughly one event for every two days the company has existed) and forged countless connections between men in the city. Hysell added speed-dating events to his roster in 2009, and he somehow finds time to perform marriage ceremonies and run one of the city’s largest gay email lists when he’s not pairing up potential soulmates.
