Set in chic venues, speed-dating events spark romance with five-minute mini dates. Women set up camp at tables and men rotate among them at the sound of a whistle, with a typical event consisting of 10 to 15 dates (HurryDate offers one free subsequent visit if you meet fewer than eight people). Later, online profiles jog memories as singles enter their matches into HurryDate’s system, which connects singles who select each other. Mutual matches can make contact through a secure email system. On HurryDate’s online dating website, singles create profiles showcasing their photographs, personalities, and relationship goals. Sparks fly as potential matches click through profiles, mingle at online parties, and send secure emails or virtual drinks. Subscriptions include a 25% discount on HurryDate events.<p>
More than a decade ago, HurryDate's founders recognized a need for a fun alternative to traditional dating methods. Eschewing the age-old belief that going on a date means going to dinner, the company streamlined the mingling process into five-minute mini dates. Today, HurryDate hosts speed-dating parties at chic bars in more than 40 U.S. cities, and sparks virtual romance with an online dating system where singles can create profiles for free or pay a membership fee to contact others. At the dating parties, 30 men and 30 women chat one-on-one for one-twelfth of an hour before selecting matches and making contact with mutual matches online. A secure messaging system keeps email addresses private, saving singles from exposing themselves as Topanga Lawrence until potential partners are already hooked. HurryDate guarantees that singles will meet at least eight people at each party, or the next party is free.
