If you live in the Big Apple and you’re feeling that it’s sometimes a little too big, perhaps you ought to consider speed dating and singles events. In a busy city, it can be hard to get to know someone, let alone even just get talking in a bar. With NY Minute Dating, your worries might all be over: they run events such as speed dating sessions or singles parties, in New York City, with you in mind.
Probably their best selling points are the events themselves, with a great variety of themes and locations, all of which cost around $35 (though some are cheaper or more expensive).
Whilst the website itself functions mostly as an events diary and ticket booth, it also contains a few extras to help relive your happy times, or to check out what you might expect from an event.
The site’s team seem very proud of their customer feedback, and they’re right to be. Clients seem very happy indeed with the staff and the events offered, with shining testimonials to read through.
If you follow the Events link, you’ll find a long list of events throughout New York, including themed nights for particular age groups, ethnicities and cultures, interests and more.
Say, for example, that you’re interested in meeting a Jewish partner in their 20s or 30s, this is no problem! You’ll find a party set up especially for that. Other such parties include Single Professionals 40-50s, Singles with Advanced Degrees and Valentines Day specials.
The Valentines events in particular are noteworthy, with previous parties having over 1000 guests attend. The team also run special events such as yacht parties and more, so it’s worth taking a look around at what’s on offer. There are often between 7 and 10 events running each week, so you’ll never be short on choice.
The site’s video gallery is also worth a visit. This shows you short, well filmed videos of events, so you can get an idea of what happens. Members look fun, engaged and enthusiastic, so we’re confident you’ll have a good time on the events.
If you’re in any more need of assurance, NYminuteDating.com also offers guarantees that you’ll be satisfied, or you can attend again for free. So far, so good.
However, there is room for improvement: this site feels very much like a brochure, encouraging you to purchase tickets. This is fine, but we’d also like to see more community elements so that people could take some initiative in getting to know each other before and after an event.
Also, some events such as a 1000+ party might be quite intimidating for some single people. That said, these are infrequent and of course you only need to attend if you want to.
If you’re more interested in a low-key, more intimate evening, this is possible. NY Minute Dating is also designed with “professionals” in mind: busy, hard working people who are career focused, but we’re confident (especially given the membership numbers) that you’ll find a range of people from all walks of life.
So, if you’re looking for friendship, dates, love or more, and you live in New York City, NY Minute Dating looks like a very viable option for helping you to meet someone special. It’s free to look around, and tickets are available throughout the week, so why not take a peek and see where it takes you.
