Speed Dating has been changed to a

=> Lock N Key Party!!!!

*** This event is open to all singles ***

Do you find online dating to be misleading or often unresponsive??
Take a break from the online picture catalogs and have a fun night out. Most of us are so much better in person than our pics & profiles - meet a whole new group of people who are PRESENT & interested in meeting you!!!

The prospect of mingling at a singles-only happy hour can
leave even the most outgoing types feeling wallflower-y:
What do you say? How do you strike up a conversation
without resorting to cheesy lines? One cool new solution:
Lock and Key parties, which can help you break the ice.
These outings are one of the most fun and innovative nights
out you can have!  It's a FUN way to socialize, make new
friends, meet your match...or just have a great time! With
your lock or key, you can talk to anyone and everyone you want!  

How Lock N Key works:

Every woman gets a padlock. Every man gets a key. Your goal
is to match the right key with the right padlock. Make the
rounds of the room, with nothing more original than "Let's
see if we match!" as your opening line. If you find your
match, great! You chat and see how well you get along.
Throughout your quest, you are sure to meet tons of people
of the opposite sex in a fun and different way. Lock and
Key events are a great alternative to the club scene and
traditional socials since the fun and unique ice-breaker
format ensures you meet tons of new people.
The beauty of Lock and Key is that you can play it at your
own pace or wait for people to approach you.  For some men,
lock and key parties are cool because the girls approach
the guys instead of the usual introduction.  At these
parties people of the opposite sex are going to approach
you!  You will soon be in the party mood, lose your
inhibitions and will be trying to match your Lock or your
Key with others.  We make it easy to meet new people!  Our
party is the ULTIMATE ice breaker and conversation
starter.Even the shyest folks will soon be talking and
laughing. It's time to unlock your social life!!!

What if my Key unlocks a Lock?

Every time you unlock, simply return to a rep to be issued
another lock or key so you can get back into the fun and
mingle some more.  You will also be entered into a drawing
for the chance to win a great prize. The more times you
change your lock or key, the more chance you have of
winning. That's all part of the fun, but the real goal
and most of the fun is in meeting new people!  

Lock and Key parties are low-cost + engaging!!!

So simple... yet so complex... as science attempts to deconstruct one of the great mysteries of life.
Mental attraction + physical attraction = chemistry, the rush of glorious brain chemicals.  Perhaps all we can do is be aware - and take a leap into the unknown...

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
