The British-inspired and Bravo-approved SpeedNY 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 6-7 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, SpeedNY Dating offers a British spin on familiar American tropes. Each speed-dating session eschews noisy whistles and impersonal nametags for civilized conversation enders. Certified cosmetologists also provide free optional makeovers for ladies 30 minutes before each event.
