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

Welcome to our “Mature Mingling” speed dating event for singles aged 30-55 at the iconic Argyle in The Rocks! This is where seasoned daters and those new to the scene come together for a night of potential romance and connection. Being single in Sydney’s historic heart can be both exciting and challenging, with the area’s cobblestone laneways and harbourside views offering a picturesque backdrop for budding relationships.Β 

Our events take place at The Argyle, located at 18 Argyle St, The Rocks NSW 2000. It’s easy to reach – just hop on the train to Circular Quay station, and you’re a short walk away. For the event, smart casual is the way to go. Gents, a crisp shirt and well-fitted trousers will do the trick, while ladies can opt for a stylish dress or chic separates. Need a last-minute outfit? The Rocks Markets on weekends are perfect for finding unique pieces. You’ll be meeting singles not just from The Rocks, but also from nearby Millers Point and Dawes Point. As an attendee, you’ll feel a mix of anticipation and excitement as you step into this historic venue.

How It Works

Here’s how our speed dating social works: Upon arrival, you’ll receive a name card and scan a QR code to access our Matching App 4.0. This app shows you a list of all attendees, helping you put names to faces. After some initial mingling at the bar, ladies take their seats while our hosts rotate the men every 5 minutes. You’ll enjoy 12 of these mini-dates, typically running from 7 to 9 PM. During each date, you can choose to ‘Match’ or ‘Friend’ directly from your phone.Β 

At 8 AM the next day, you’ll receive your matches’ contact details – but only for those who’ve also selected you. Pro tip: Keep an open mind and give everyone a fair chance! We usually book 40 attendees, with an equal split between men and women, ensuring a balanced experience for all. Compared to the endless swiping on Tinder or crafting the perfect eHarmony profile, our events offer that irreplaceable face-to-face chemistry that dating apps just can’t replicate.

Who You’ll Meet

At our Mature Mingling events, you’ll meet a diverse group of professionals and individuals who’ve lived a bit of life. Many are established in their careers and looking for a meaningful connection. Some might be re-entering the dating scene after divorce or focusing on finding a partner now that their kids are older. Others might be career-focused individuals who are finally making time for their love lives.Β 

The common thread? They’re all seeking genuine connections in a world often dominated by casual hookups and situationships. Many have tried various dating methods, from apps like Bumble and Hinge to setups by well-meaning friends, and are now ready for a more direct approach. To make the most of your speed dating experience, come prepared with a few interesting questions and be ready to share what makes you unique. After the event, why not suggest a second date at the nearby Observatory Hill? It offers stunning harbor views and is the perfect spot for a romantic picnic or stargazing session.

The Venue

The Argyle, our chosen venue, is a Sydney institution. This multi-level venue is housed in a heritage-listed building dating back to 1826, originally used as a bond store for customs. Now owned by Merivale, one of Sydney’s premier hospitality groups, The Argyle seamlessly blends historic charm with modern sophistication. Its unique layout, featuring multiple bars and intimate nooks, perfectly suits our speed dating format. The venue’s sandstone walls and arched ceilings create a romantic ambiance that sets the mood for connection.Β 

The outdoor courtyard, with its fairy lights, offers a magical space for post-event mingling. Don’t miss trying their signature cocktail, the Argyle Affair – it’s a great ice breaker! The mix of historic architecture and contemporary style at The Argyle creates an atmosphere that’s both impressive and comfortable, helping our speed daters feel at ease and open to making genuine connections. Pro tip: Arrive a bit early to explore the venue and calm any pre-event jitters with a drink at the bar!
