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 spice up your love life, Sydney singles? Welcome to the world of speed dating for the 30-55 crowd, affectionately known as the “Prime Time Players” in the dating scene. If you’re feeling stuck in a rut, swiping endlessly on dating apps, or just tired of the same old bar scene, this might be just the ticket to shake things up. Let’s face it, being single in Sydney can be tough, especially when you’re juggling a career, social life, and maybe even kids. But fear not, because Speed Dating Social has got your back with an event that’s tailor-made for busy professionals looking for love.Β 

We’re talking about a night of fast-paced fun at the iconic Noble Hops, located at 125 Redfern St, Redfern NSW 2016. This hotspot is easily accessible by public transport – just hop on the T3 Eastern Suburbs & Illawarra Line to Redfern Station, and you’re a short walk away from potentially meeting your match. Not sure what to wear? Keep it classy but casual, and if you need a quick outfit upgrade, swing by The Collective Outlet in Redfern for some stylish options. And don’t worry, you’ll be mingling with like-minded singles from neighboring Surry Hills and Waterloo too, so you’re bound to find someone who catches your eye.

How It Works

Now, let’s break down how this speed dating social actually works. When you arrive, you’ll get your name card and scan a QR code to access the Matching App 4.0 – this nifty little tool lets you see a list of all attendees right on your phone. Start the night off with some casual mingling at the bar before the main event kicks off. Ladies, you’ll be seated while the gents rotate every 5 minutes, giving you 12 mini-dates in total.Β 

As you chat, you can decide to ‘Match’ or ‘Friend’ directly from your phone, and you’ll get your matches’ contact details at 8am the next day. Pro tip: be open-minded and give everyone a fair shot! The event typically runs from 7 to 9pm, with a fun intermission featuring ice breaker games and conversation cards to keep things flowing. With 40 attendees (that’s 20 guys and 20 ladies), you’re guaranteed equal ratios and plenty of opportunities to connect. Trust me, it’s a whole lot more exciting than endlessly swiping on Tinder or crafting the perfect OkCupid message.

Who You’ll Meet

So, who exactly are the Prime Time Players you’ll be meeting? These are folks in their 30s to 50s who’ve lived a little and know what they want. They’re career-focused professionals who’ve tried everything from Bumble to blind dates set up by well-meaning friends. Many are divorced or single parents, juggling work and family life while trying to carve out time for romance. They’re the ones you see brunching at Three Williams Cafe or grabbing after-work drinks at The Bearded Tit.Β 

Their biggest challenge? Finding someone who understands their busy lifestyle and is ready for a real connection. Here’s a hot tip for making the most of your speed dating experience: come prepared with a few open-ended questions that really get to the heart of who someone is. And if you hit it off with someone, why not suggest a second date at the nearby Carriageworks Farmers Market? Nothing says romance like strolling hand-in-hand, sampling artisanal cheeses and locally roasted coffee.

Your Host

Speed Dating Social isn’t just another flash-in-the-pan dating service. Founded by Darcy Todd in 2020, they’ve successfully run over 787 events, introducing more than 37,423 singles. Their secret sauce? Always booking equal ratios of men and women, ensuring you’re never left hanging.Β 

Tickets start at $29.90 for early birds, with last-release tickets at $34.90. And while they have a no-refund policy within 30 days of an event (hey, they’ve got to keep the numbers balanced), you can always reach out toΒ matches@speeddatingsocial.comΒ if you have any questions or concerns.

The Venue

Now, let’s talk about the venue itself. Noble Hops isn’t just any old bar – it’s a craft beer lover’s paradise housed in a beautifully restored 19th-century building that used to be a wool store. Owned by local beer enthusiasts Jack and Sarah Thompson, the venue’s rich history and exposed brick walls create a warm, inviting atmosphere that’s perfect for breaking the ice.Β 

The bar’s extensive selection of microbrews means you’ll never be short of conversation starters – why not impress your date by ordering their signature Noble Hops IPA? The venue’s cozy booths and ambient lighting make for intimate mini-date settings, while the spacious outdoor area is perfect for those intermission mingles. And here’s a pro tip: arrive a few minutes early to snag a spot at the bar’s unique “conversation table,” a long communal table designed to encourage interaction – it’s the perfect warm-up for your speed dating adventure!
