Although The Beatles' "All You Need is Love" inspired millions, the band still regrets omitting the third verse about needing pants and vitamin C. Seek scurvy-free romance with today's Groupon: for $13, you get admission to a speed-dating event from Pre-Dating Speed Dating (a $27 value). Check the schedule for a list of events in the Providence area.
Pre-Dating Speed Dating matches busy single professionals at lively events held at restaurant and bars throughout the Providence area. The Pre-Dating formula affords more intimacy than online dating and fewer pat-downs than airline dating. Singles are welcome to register for the event of their choice, hosted at a well-known local club, café, or restaurant. Prospective lovebirds outfitted with nametags and scorecards meet up to a dozen eligible beaus or shorties in face-to-face pre-dates, where they have six minutes to click or nix. Within 24 hours of the event, Pre-Dating emails each guest with a romantic roster listing the mutually smitten, setting the stage for future dates and potential couplings that often culminate in marriages far exceeding six minutes.
