Dating can be frustrating, especially if you have a busy work schedule or a phobia of phone numbers. Let others do the legwork with this Groupon.
$19 for Admission to a Two-Hour Speed-Dating Event ($45 Value)
At each speed-dating event, men rotate from table to table and meet with women during a series of six-minute match dates. As casual conversations spark budding attractions, attendees use a provided card to jot down the names of people who pique their interest. Afterwards, each attendee hands his or her card to the event's host, who will email them the names of the people who would like to get to know them better. From there, attendees are free to schedule dates on their own.
Though all events take place in the Los Angeles area, locations, dates, and times will vary. Check the frequently updated list of upcoming events for more information.
Two for Drinks
Touting a master's degree in psychology and a passion for matchmaking, Natasha Shpiner launched Two for Drinks to make the hectic dating process easier for busy professionals. Striving to supply an ethical and confidential matchmaking process, she and her staff orchestrate pairings by referencing their database of prescreened candidates built partially from existing clients' referrals. To help pinpoint client's preferences, they stage an initial 60-minute chat and continue to update the client’s profile based on responses to potential candidates. When they find a client-approved match, the team serenades the calendar in return for a time, location, and date for a meeting. They also host speed-dating events and cater an array of personal-improvement services, such as image consulting and date coaching for men and women.
