Success Stories πŸ’‘

Many have already found love ❀️

β€œWhen I went to my first speed dating event, I had zero expectations

– less than zero actually.
But yup, when I walked into that bar, I saw him and went all nervous.
I wouldn’t say our first conversation was scintillating. I don’t even remember what small talk we made – maybe our jobs.
At the end of the event, I saw him sitting alone and asked whether I could sit next to him. He said he wanted to see me again and I said the same.
We are now happily and exclusively together. If I have any advice to give anyone, it would be to give speed dating a try. I was lucky to have found my person the first time around. But I had been online dating for a year with no success.

You may not find someone the first time or the 10th time, but at least these guys take the trouble to show up and put their best foot forward. They are making the effort which is more than I can say for some people on online dating sites – and that’s not even counting the sleazeballs.
– a happy attendee”

“I would like to let you know that last month,

I attended one of your speed dating nights in Hardware Lane and met the most beautiful girl. We connected and you sent our numbers to us.
We met up again the next day and have been on many dates and have spoken every day, for hours It’s been 6 weeks + and going strong.
Just wanted to let you know of one of your success stories. The future looks bright.
We recommend your speed dating nights to every single person we speak to. It was so much fun. Thank you.”

β€œI just wanted to let you know…

That I won’t been attending your next event. I had already purchased the ticket earlier… I attended the last event and had a wonderful time… after I worked up the courage to actually walk in…
I was so nervous and almost didn’t go in but I am really glad I did I have made a connection with a great guy and am looking forward to pursuing that and seeing how we go.

So thank you for all the effort in putting these events together… don’t worry about giving me a refund on the ticket, maybe you can give that to someone that rocks up on the night without a ticket as I know how hard They are to get. thanks so much again.”

Event Details

Are you ready to dive into the exciting world of speed dating in Melbourne? If you’re a single professional between 31-47 years old, you’re in for a treat! Welcome to the “Melbourne Midlife Mingles” – a speed dating event tailored for vibrant singles in their prime. Being single in Melbourne can be both exhilarating and challenging, with its bustling laneways, hidden bars, and thriving food scene offering endless date possibilities.Β 

But how do you meet that special someone in this urban jungle? Enter Speed Dating Social’s event at the iconic Diesel Bar & Eatery, located at 202 Little Lonsdale St, Melbourne VIC 3000. Just hop on the 86 tram or take a short stroll from Melbourne Central Station, and you’ll find yourself in the heart of the action. For the perfect outfit that screams “confident single,” swing by Emporium Melbourne on Lonsdale Street. You’ll be rubbing shoulders with eligible bachelors and bachelorettes from neighboring Carlton and Fitzroy, so put your best foot forward!

How It Works

Here’s what to expect at our Melbourne speed dating event: Upon arrival, you’ll receive a name card and scan a QR code to access our cutting-edge Matching App 4.0. This nifty tool lets you see a list of all attendees right on your phone – talk about a modern twist on matchmaking! After some pre-event mingling at the bar, ladies will take their seats while the gents rotate every 5 minutes.Β 

You’ll enjoy 12 mini-dates in total, typically running from 7 to 9 PM. Simply select ‘Match’ or ‘Friend’ on your app for each person you meet. The best part? You’ll receive your matches’ contact details at 8 AM the next day, along with a list of who selected you. Don’t worry if you’re feeling nervous – we’ve got ice breaker games and conversation cards to keep things flowing smoothly. With an equal ratio of 20 men to 20 women, you’re guaranteed to have someone to chat with all night long. Many attendees find this face-to-face interaction far more genuine and exciting than swiping through dating apps like Tinder or Bumble.

Who You’ll Meet

So, who exactly will you meet at Melbourne Midlife Mingles? These are professionals in their 30s and 40s who’ve established their careers and are now ready to focus on finding love. They’re likely juggling busy work schedules, possibly navigating the world of dating after divorce, or balancing single parenthood. You might bump into a startup founder who unwinds at rooftop bars in Fitzroy, or a corporate lawyer who’s tried everything from online dating to matchmaking services.Β 

The common thread? They’re all seeking genuine connections in a city that can sometimes feel overwhelmingly large. To make the most of your speed dating experience, come with an open mind and a list of engaging questions. Remember, it’s about quality conversations, not just physical attraction. If you hit it off with someone, why not suggest a second date at the nearby NGV? Nothing sparks romance quite like admiring art together!

The Venue

Diesel Bar & Eatery, our chosen venue at 202 Little Lonsdale St, provides the perfect backdrop for our Melbourne speed dating event. This industrial-chic space, housed in a former mechanics workshop dating back to the 1920s, exudes character with its exposed brick walls and vintage memorabilia. Owned by local hospitality guru Jane Smith, Diesel’s intimate booths and ambient lighting create an atmosphere conducive to romantic connections.Β 

The bar’s signature cocktail, the “Spark Plug Spritz,” is a great ice breaker to share with a potential match. The venue’s central location and spacious layout allow for smooth transitions between mini-dates, while the cozy corners offer quiet spots for post-event chitchat. Pro tip: Arrive early to snag a seat at the bar’s famous “love booth” – rumor has it, couples who sit there often find a special connection!
