Speed dating on long island
This was simply a creative solution meant to address a shortage of single men in their 40’s and 50’s.
Here is the story: When Long Island Speed Dating (currently known as Weekend Dating.com) was started, I thought the only market was for the 25-35 year old crowd. Some of our best events are for the 40’s and 50’s age bracket. Where did all the single guys in the 46-56 age range go?
I was a little nervous about what the women would say, but to my pleasant surprise, the overwhelming majority thought it was a great idea.
Here is an actual comment: ”Hi, I think the idea of having two women at one table is terrific!
My friend and I have been trying to get into a session for women between 38 and 53 and have been unable to do so.
Please feel free to call Jay at 718-757-6933 with any questions after you have reviewed the website..Our events take place in restaurants, lounges and other upscale venues in Suffolk and Nassau counties.We always make sure there is a balanced ratio of men and women at our events.Each time a new single woman arrived, she was immediately introduced to group and made to feel welcome. The women had already been eating and were sitting at tables.
They had already paired up themselves, and were making new friends.Women have complained that they have been waiting more than 6 months to come to an event.As with all new event ideas, the suggestion was potsed to the mailing list. Hey, why not, they get to meet twice as many women.Long Island events take place in East Meadow, Huntington, Woodbury, Hicksville and other Long Island hot spots.
