I signed up for a Monday night event with Speed NY Dating (because what else was I going to do on a Monday night?), and found myself in the restaurant of the Hyatt Union Square.
Creating an atmosphere that is at once casual and comfortable. For those that prefer the same simplified experience in matchmaking we offer our 'Date Nights' free of contracts or commitments.
It's as simple as selecting your package, telling us your preferences and allowing us to arrange the evening. We are regularly approached by venues looking to have the cheekiest in the world of dating to their spots.
Registration is at pm with the event starting at 8pm and each date will last around 3-4 minutes giving you just enough time to work out whether you would like to see them again or not.
Plus, if you don't like anyone at the event you can attend another night for free!
Our friendly hosts will be on hand to greet guests, break the ice and explain how everything works so you have nothing to worry about! The ticket holder voluntarily assumes all risks and danger incidental to the event for which the ticket is issued, whether occurring prior, during or after the event.
The ticket holder voluntarily agrees that the management, venue, event participants, Design My Night (WFL Media Ltd) and all of their respective agents, officers, directors, owners and employers are expressly released by the ticket holder from any claims arising from such causes. Tickets are issued subject to the rules and regulations of the venue. Please check your tickets, as mistakes cannot always be rectified. Occasionally, events are cancelled or postponed by the promoter, team, performer or venue for a variety of reasons.All the KK parties are masked balls, so identities remain secret.Meet, mingle and then, if things are going well, retreat to one of the special rooms to find out more about the singles who pique your interest.While online dating has totally shed the stigma that was long attached to it, speed dating is still largely seen as a last resort for desperate singles who have failed everywhere else in the dating pool...for clueless men and women who naively think they’re going to meet their Prince Charmings and Snow Whites in a Times Square hotel meeting room. I pictured a snaking line of dolled-up girls changing seats at a dinging bell in front of a small handful of awkward, overwhelmed men. In fact, speed dating may actually be NYC’s best-kept dating secret.Shhh Dating There's no need for awkward small-talk at these unconventional silent speed-dating events. In the first you can mime, squeak and gesticulate but in the second there's total silence; only staring into each other's eyes is allowed.
