This is the perfect event to meet singles from the tri-state area - all from the safety & comfort of your own home. Get to meet people online before meeting them in person!

You will meet singles via your computer with webcam or smartphone/tablet (strong WiFi connection required if using a phone). The event will take place in a Virtual Room using Zoom (Zoom is a free download and super easy to use).

We will break participants into pairs of two, just like we do with traditional speed dating. You will get to speak to each dates for a specified amount of time (typically 4-6 minutes). After the specified number of minutes, the guys will rotate to the next date and the process continues.

Just like with traditional speed dating, at the end of the event you will be able to let us know who you were interested in. We will send you both mutual matches (you picked them and they picked you) as well as one way matches (they picked you but you did not pick them).

You are given 20 minutes from the end of the event to let us know who you are interested in and will receive the results the same night (usually within one hour) or the next morning. You will not have to wait 24 hours or more to get your results.

The minimum number of potential dates will be 5 and the maximum will be about 10. If there are less than 5 members of the opposite sex in attendance, you would get credit for a future Virtual event.
