What is Speed Dating?
Tired of the bar scene? Hate setups? Already know all of your friends' friends, and have a healthy disinclination to date your co-workers? New York EasyDates is the perfect solution. It's the efficient, effective, and fun way to meet other New York singles and figure out which ones you want to see again, without the awkwardness of approaching a stranger or getting stuck in long conversations with someone who is not for you. In one short evening, you will have a series of short dates - ten to twelve, up to twenty, or up to forty, depending on which event you pick.
A group of singles in your age group - an equal number of men and women - meet at a lounge bar filled with tables and couches for two. You'll sit at a numbered table with your first partner. The host rings a bell, and your first "date" begins. After six minutes (regular event) or three minutes (up-to-20 date event) the bell rings again, and you rotate on to a new partner. Each of you discreetly marks on a form whether you want to see the person you just met again. If you both picked "yes," you've matched.
If you choose a "regular" event, by the end of the evening you'll meet at least ten people (and often a few more), for six minutes each. If you choose an "Everyone Meets Everyone" event you'll usually meet at least 15 - 20 people, for shorter dates of about three minutes each. And if you choose an "Up to 40 Dates" event it's a real speed-dating marathon, with up to 40 dates of just over two minutes each.
Any time after the event, you can log on to the website to enter your selections. Now you'll get your match information, including the e-mail addresses of anyone you matched with. And you know what to do from there.
