Success Stories ๐Ÿ’‘

Many have already found loveย โค๏ธ

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

โ€“ less than zero actually.
But yup, when I walked into that bar, I saw him and went all nervous.
I wouldnโ€™t say our first conversation was scintillating. I donโ€™t even remember what small talk we made โ€“ 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 โ€“ and thatโ€™s not even counting the sleazeballs.
โ€“ a happy attendeeโ€

“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 Itโ€™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.โ€

โ€œI just wanted to let you know…

That I wonโ€™t been attending your next event. I had already purchased the ticket earlierโ€ฆ I attended the last event and had a wonderful timeโ€ฆ after I worked up the courage to actually walk inโ€ฆ
I was so nervous and almost didnโ€™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 togetherโ€ฆ donโ€™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

Welcome to the thrilling world of speed dating for Perth’s young professionals! If you’re between 29-47 and ready to mingle, our “Midlife Mingle” event at The Edison is perfect for you. Being single in Perth can be a rollercoaster – one minute you’re sipping flat whites at Gordon St Garage, the next you’re wandering Kings Park alone, wishing you had someone to share the view with. But fear not, because The Edison at 393 Murray St is about to become your new favorite matchmaking hotspot.ย 

Hop on the Blue CAT bus to St Georges Terrace and you’ll be there in no time. Dress to impress – we recommend hitting up Cult Status in Northbridge for that perfect outfit. You’ll be meeting singles not just from the CBD, but also from trendy suburbs like Mount Lawley and Subiaco. As an attendee, you’ll feel the buzz of possibility in the air, a refreshing change from swiping endlessly on dating apps.

How It Works

When you arrive, you’ll get your name card and scan the QR code for our Matching App 4.0, where you can scope out your fellow daters. After some casual mingling at the bar, ladies take their seats while the gents rotate every five minutes. It’s like musical chairs, but way more romantic! You’ll have 12 mini-dates in total, from 7 to 9 pm.ย 

Don’t worry if you run out of things to say – we’ve got ice breaker games and conversation cards to keep things flowing. With 20 guys and 20 ladies, the odds are in your favor. Trust us, it beats the uncertainty of Tinder or the endless messaging of OkCupid. Here, you’re face-to-face with real people, making real connections.

Who You’ll Meet

Our “Midlife Mingle” crowd is a diverse bunch of Perth professionals. They’re established in their careers but still adventurous at heart. Many have tried the dating app scene and found it lacking, while others are dipping their toes back into dating after a long-term relationship. They’re the kind of people you might bump into at a wine tasting in the Swan Valley or a weekend market in Fremantle.ย 

Their challenge? Finding someone who shares their values and zest for life. Our tip: be open-minded and genuine – you never know who might surprise you. And if you hit it off, why not suggest a second date at the nearby Perth Cultural Centre? Nothing like a bit of art to spark deeper conversations!

The Venue

The Edison, our chosen venue at 393 Murray St, is more than just a bar – it’s a piece of Perth history. Originally built in 1888 as a power station, it was transformed into a bar in 2015 by the visionary team at Naber Group. The industrial chic decor creates an electric atmosphere perfect for sparking connections.ย 

The exposed brick walls and vintage light fixtures provide great conversation starters, while the intimate booths are ideal for those five-minute dates. Don’t miss their signature “Electric Slide” cocktail – it’s the perfect ice breaker. Speed dating at The Edison feels like you’re part of a secret society of singles, all on a mission to find their perfect match. Pro tip: arrive early to soak in the ambiance and calm those pre-dating jitters!
