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

Hey there, fellow Sydneysiders! Are you ready to spice up your love life and potentially meet your perfect match? Well, buckle up because we’ve got just the event for you – a speed dating extravaganza for the “Millennial and Xennial” crowd, aged 29-47, at the iconic Crows Nest Hotel! If you’re single in the Lower North Shore, you know the struggle of finding that special someone amidst the hustle and bustle of city life. But fear not, because this event is your chance to mingle with like-minded locals who are just as eager to find love as you are.Β 

The Crows Nest Hotel, located at 1 Willoughby Rd, Crows Nest NSW 2065, is the perfect backdrop for a night of romantic possibilities. Hop on the 343 bus or take a short stroll from St Leonards station, and you’ll be right where the action is. Not sure what to wear? Swing by Westfield Chatswood for a quick outfit upgrade that’ll have you feeling confident and ready to impress. And hey, you never know – you might just meet someone from neighboring Artarmon or Naremburn who’s been right under your nose this whole time!

How It Works

Now, let’s talk about what you can expect at this speed dating social. Upon arrival, you’ll receive your name card and scan a QR code to access the Matching App 4.0, where you can scope out your potential matches before the main event kicks off. After some casual mingling at the bar, the ladies will take their seats while the gents rotate every five minutes. It’s like musical chairs, but with the possibility of finding your soulmate! You’ll have the power to ‘Match’ or ‘Friend’ directly from your phone, and the next morning at 8 am, you’ll receive the contact details of your mutual matches.Β 

Pro tip: keep an open mind and give everyone a fair chance – you never know who might surprise you! With 12 five-minute mini-dates packed into two hours, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to spark a connection. And if you find yourself tongue-tied, don’t worry – we’ve got ice breaker games and conversation cards to keep the chat flowing. With an even split of 20 guys and 20 ladies, the odds are in your favor compared to the endless swiping on Tinder or the hit-or-miss nature of eHarmony.

Who You’ll Meet

Let’s be real – dating in your 30s and early 40s can be a whole different ballgame. You might be juggling a demanding career, considering starting a family, or navigating the world of dating after divorce. The crowd at this event gets it because they’re in the same boat. These are professionals who’ve tried everything from dating apps to setup by well-meaning friends, but they’re looking for something more authentic.Β 

They’re the kind of people you might bump into at a trendy Crows Nest coffee shop or a yoga class in Willoughby. They’re over the games and ready for meaningful connections. To make the most of your speed dating experience, come with an open heart and a list of interesting questions that go beyond the usual small talk. And if you hit it off with someone, why not suggest a second date at the nearby Hayden Orpheum Picture Palace? Nothing beats a classic movie night to keep the romance alive!

The Venue

The Crows Nest Hotel isn’t just any old pub – it’s a North Shore institution with a history as rich as its beer selection. Originally built in the 1850s as a roadside inn, it’s been serving up good times and great drinks for over 170 years. The current owners, the Maloney family, have kept the historic charm while adding modern touches that make it perfect for our speed dating shenanigans. The bar’s open layout and cozy nooks create the ideal atmosphere for both intimate chats and group mingling.Β 

And let’s not forget the stunning rooftop garden – a perfect spot for a breather between dates or a romantic nightcap if you hit it off with someone special. Speaking of drinks, why not impress your date by ordering the house specialty, a Crow’s Nest Cooler? It’s a refreshing blend that’ll keep you cool under pressure. The venue’s mix of history and contemporary style adds a unique flair to the speed dating experience, making each mini-date feel like a journey through time. Pro tip: arrive a bit early to soak in the atmosphere and calm those pre-date jitters!
