Tired of Swiping on Dating Apps With No Success? Try These Virtual Events for Singles.
Between the endless swiping, the ghosting, and flaky people on dating apps, it's hard to find a genuine connection in today's dating climate. Throw a global pandemic into the mix, and your chances of meeting someone special dwindle even more. But there are a couple of places online where singles can connect virtually through interactive social events from the comfort of home. And you don't have to worry about scammers because these events are all done in real-time with verified human beings.
Second Date Social is a group-based video dating platform that hosts virtual events for singles in several U.S. cities. A variety of events are hosted and categorized by age, interests, and location, although all are welcome to attend. A live concierge facilitates each event, guiding attendees and giving them a chance to ask questions. Similar to a Zoom call, singles select and "sit" at virtual tables and socialize with others. There are four people (or less) - both men and women - at each table. Every ten minutes, singles are encouraged to switch tables and connect with a new group of people. The site focuses on what it calls the "Three C's of Great Online Dating," - convenience, connections, and chemistry.
In addition to group dating, Second Date Social hosts virtual happy hours, trivia nights, and other fun events. Even if you don't meet your soulmate, you're sure to make some great new friends.
For singles who prefer a more intimate dating experience, The Fun Singles also hosts events, but these are primarily one-on-one speed dates. Each mini date lasts eight minutes, but you can add five minutes to your time if you are enjoying the conversation. Join events that are held in your age group and location, but keep in mind that people from other states may also attend. Choose to only date people in your area, or connect with singles from all over. If you feel a connection with one of the dates, select the "match" option at the end of the call to open the messaging platform and continue the conversation.
Not interested in one of your dates? No problem. Choose the "don't want to connect" option to move on to the next person. Events last an hour and a half, giving you plenty of time to meet new people. There is also an event concierge available for questions, although the events are self-facilitated. You control who to have dates with and who to pass on, so you aren't obligated to invest time in people who don't meet your criteria.
Both Second Date Social and The Fun Singles usually charge a low monthly or per event fee that allows you to attend unlimited events. However, right now, all events are FREE, so it's a great time to take advantage! You never know who you'll meet, so what do you have to lose? Nothing! Except maybe your "single" status.
