Being struck by love is like being struck like lightning: It's sudden, electrifying, and explains why Benjamin Franklin was voted World's Sexiest Man 17 years running. Make your own sparks fly with today's Groupon: for $17, you get to participate in a singles' event from Letting it Go Dating (a $35 value).
Letting It Go Dating specializes in pairing unwed men and women who have grown weary of the online dating scene. The social committee arranges weekend events in Cedar Rapids and Iowa City for eligible bachelors and bachelorettes to meet, greet, and play 20 Questions. On Saturday, April 2 at 8 p.m. in Cedar Rapids, partnerless professionals will mingle during 8-minute speed-dating sessions before conversing further over cocktails and hors d'oeuvres. On the following Saturday, singles of Iowa City gather to engage in matchmaking games, win prizes, pick up some salsa moves, and carry off potential soul mates. Letting It Go Dating's personnel of relationship counselors, background checkers, and love gurus are skilled in the art of people-pairing, so Grouponers should expect their hearts to be stolen faster than a car parked in a heist film.
Letting It Go Dating
The date-organizers at Letting It Go Dating shun the modern affection for online dating profiles, preferring instead to interview their members one on one rather than have them fill out a questionnaire. Once they've determined what kind of partner a member might be interested in, they arrange personalized introductions at a venue that suits both singles, and then leave them to let the sparks fly. The company also inspires flirtation through low-pressure, speed-dating style social events at locations free of the dimness and cacophony of a bar, but still with enjoyable elements of the nightlife slipped in.
