Love at first sight requires ideal lighting conditions, which is why it rarely occurs in the harsh fluorescent glow of a meatpacking plant. Look love straight in the eyes with this Groupon.
Choose from Three Options
- $21 for one speed dating event (up to a $49 value)
- $59 for three speed dating events (up to a $147 value)

Each speed dating event takes place at a trendy restaurant or bar, where single men meet with seated ladies for speedy get-togethers. The Simplify Me matchmaking package enlists an experienced matchmaker to not only determine who would be an ideal fit for the client, but also arrange date locations and provide tips. The package includes two pre-arranged dates.
The British- and Bravo-approved SpeedHouston Dating assists aspiring singles in finding romance with two-hour bouts of sophisticated speed dating also featured on outlets such as TLC’s Cake Boss, VH1, and the Discovery Channel. Affable hosts guide guests through the entryway of a moodily lit locale to begin striking chords with 18 singles of the opposite sex in the hope that a playful rendition of “Dueling Banjos” develops between heartstrings. After the staff seats each lady at her own secluded table, gentlemen jaunt from gal to gal, spending seven–eight minutes with each potential partner. As the minutes full of cheeky conversation and gourmet appetizers pass, participants make their decisions about date mates on provided cards and check their email 24 hours later to see if matches have been made.
Like the BBC News and the definition of chips, SpeedHouston Dating offers a British spin on familiar American tropes. Each speed-dating session eschews noisy whistles and impersonal nametags for civilized conversation enders and an email about fellow attendees prior to the event. Chic consultants also provide free optional makeovers for ladies 30 minutes before each event.
