If you’re single and living in Sydney, you can easily meet a bunch of singles in one night at a Speed Dating Social event. These dating nights give you around 12 to 20 in person dates. Typically each mini date lasts for 5 minutes before the gentlemen are rotated to the next table by our amazing host, Katie.

Specifically designed for NSW singles, simply wear something nice and remember to make good conversation. You can find events near you with venues like Hustle & Flow Bar in Redfern, The Argyle in The Rocks and Crows Nest Hotel. So that way you shouldn’t have to enter a long distance relationship.
