What You'll Get
Dating can be like assembling the silver monkey in Legends of the Hidden Temple, a challenge requiring wits, luck, and passing knowledge of primate anatomy. Skip the confusing steps of pick-up artistry with today's icebreaking Groupon: for $10, you can attend any singles' mixer at Letting it Go Dating in Coralville (a $20 value).
Founded by a frustrated single aiming to make dating fun again, Letting it Go gathers groups of romantically available humans for fun, low-pressure mingling. Various social events enable prescreened singles to woo one another over wine tastings or salsa lessons, sauce ribs at barbecue events, practice paddling on canoe excursions, and plot heists on casino nights. Some events, such as the single-parent mixer, deliberately link folks with similar life experiences; speed-dating sessions, on the other hand, toss a flurry of random singles into the ring and let them pair up for quick dates that last eight minutes, the exact amount of time it took Romeo and Juliet to fall in love.

About 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.
