What is Speed Friending?

It's kind of like Speed-Dating, except, people meet up for friends, dates or both, unlike Speed Dating which is just meeting people for dates. Picture our event like a giant icebreaker for everyone that attends. During the event you will quickly talk with multiple people and not stay in a conversation with any one person too long. At the end of our events, you can get into conversations with people that YOU want to talk to. Our events give attendees a good chance to meet many new people that are local in your town in a fast, fun, and structured way! If you are looking to make new friends around town, then look no further! Sign up and become a member today!

Why meeting people other ways just don't work...

If you are looking to meet more people, make new friends, or find a new date, people typically go out to public places like bars, coffee shops, networking parties, public events. Most of these places are filled with people that already know each other. You typically will try to meet someone you don't know and that usually has friends already with them. It can be awkward to get into a conversation just to get a chance of making a new friend or date. In order to meet a new person you often have to have courage to break into groups of people that already know each other. Not so with Speed Friending Events. The organizer gives everyone at the event a multitude of icebreakers so that social anxiety melts away and everyone gets to meet each other.

Also, even when you approach and get into a new conversation, you may quickly find you have nothing in common and now you have to figure a way to get out your conversation. With Speed Friending Events, your conversations are short so you can quickly find the people you like the most and have longer conversations with them right there the same night! It's very low pressure and fun!

In Speed Friending Events our members attend for a variety of reasons, some are looking for new friends, others looking for roommates, social network connections, some are looking for dates. At the end of the event participants feel like they all know each other because the event acts a HUGE icebreaker. Lively conversation always flows easily helping everyone forming new friendships all over the place at our events. 

So walk me through the evening...

Speed Friending Events, brought to you by, is where you get lots of people in a room, and you each have around two minutes to ask each person you are paired with questions. There are rules to this kind of event of course to keep things lively and fun. You will meet most everyone at each event. It is a great fun new way to make lots of new friends quickly.

At the end, you can choose to socialize afterwards, exchange contact information, hang out, and do things afterwards. Its a super fast way to meet people and it's entirely possible that you form lasting friendships at these events. There's nothing like it. Within 1 event which lasts about an hour and a half, you will have met almost everyone in the group which is usually 15-30 people. What you do with your time after your Social Speed Friending experience is up to you, but most people hang out, chat, exchange numbers, and form friendships. Join us and welcome!! The mission for this group is to make the best Speed Friending Event Group Ever!!
