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 revolutionize your love life in the heart of Melbourne? Welcome to the “Midlife Mingle” – a speed dating event tailored for vibrant singles aged 30-55 at the iconic Diesel Bar & Eatery. Located at 202 Little Lonsdale St, this hotspot is the perfect backdrop for sparking new connections. Being single in Melbourne can be both exhilarating and daunting, with its bustling laneways and hidden gems offering endless possibilities for romance.Β 

Catch the 86 tram to the Melbourne Central station, just a stone’s throw from our venue, and prepare for an evening of potential and excitement. Dress to impress with a chic outfit from Incu on Flinders Lane, striking the perfect balance between sophisticated and approachable. You’ll mingle with like-minded individuals from neighbouring Carlton and Fitzroy, all seeking that special someone to share Melbourne’s culinary delights and cultural events with.

What to Expect

As you arrive at Diesel Bar & Eatery, you’ll be greeted by our friendly hosts and given your name card. Scan the QR code to access our cutting-edge Matching App 4.0, where you’ll see profiles of all attendees – a modern twist on traditional speed dating. After some initial mingling at the bar, ladies will be seated as our hosts guide the gentlemen through rotations every five minutes. With 12 mini-dates lined up, you’ll have ample opportunity to make meaningful connections.Β 

Use our conversation cards during the intermission if you need an icebreaker, and remember – you’re in control of your matches. Simply tap ‘Match’ or ‘Friend’ on your phone, and you’ll receive your mutual connections’ details at 8am the next day. With an equal ratio of 20 men and 20 women, you’re guaranteed engaging conversations throughout the night. Many attendees find this face-to-face interaction far more rewarding than the endless swiping on dating apps like Tinder or Bumble.

Who You’ll Meet

The “Midlife Mingle” brings together professionals who’ve experienced life’s ups and downs and are ready for genuine connections. These are individuals balancing successful careers with a desire for companionship, often navigating the complexities of dating after divorce or as single parents. They’re likely to frequent Melbourne’s renowned coffee shops or wine bars, seeking partners who appreciate the city’s cultural offerings.Β 

Many have tried online dating but crave the authenticity of in-person interactions. To make the most of your speed dating experience, be open, honest, and focus on making a real connection rather than impressing. If sparks fly, why not suggest a second date at the nearby State Library Victoria? Its stunning architecture provides the perfect backdrop for deepening your newfound connection.

The Venue

Diesel Bar & Eatery, our chosen venue at 202 Little Lonsdale St, Melbourne VIC 3000, offers the perfect blend of sophistication and comfort for our speed dating events. Originally a textile factory in the 1920s, it was transformed into a bar in 2015 by renowned restaurateur Andrew McConnell, infusing the space with a unique industrial-chic vibe that sets the stage for romantic encounters.Β 

The exposed brick walls and dim lighting create an intimate atmosphere, while the spacious layout ensures privacy during your mini-dates. Don’t miss their signature cocktail, the “Diesel Fuel” – a smoky mezcal concoction that’s sure to be a conversation starter. The venue’s central location and versatile spaces make it ideal for transitioning from speed dating to casual post-event mingling. Pro tip: Arrive early to soak in the ambiance and calm any pre-event jitters – it’s amazing how a familiar setting can boost your confidence in the dating scene.
