If you’re familiar with “swiping right” and “swiping left,” you have Whitney Wolfe to thank.Giving you many opportunities to meet your match, On Speed Dating also hosts large singles events for up to 1,000 guests and provides diverting icebreakers to help everyone loosen up.If you’re tired of weeding through unfiltered date prospects, On Speed Dating’s themed events offer an efficient, fun, and simple solution to kick-start your love life in dating environments built on mutual attraction.This is not to “restrict” women, says Wolfe, but to “encourage” them to act and to feel confident about doing so. Launched last December, Bumble already had half a million users by June.Before getting involved in tech, Wolfe, a Salt Lake City native, studied international business at Dallas’ Southern Methodist University.The Short Version: On Speed Dating is a privately owned speed dating service connecting singles in New York City and Austin, Texas.This top-rated company made its name in 2008 by organizing themed events for specific types of daters who desire particular types of partners.
Some forums can only be seen by registered members.New Yorkers Amber Soletti and Carmine Di Re were both single in 2008 when they started going to speed dating events around town.They hoped to meet someone attractive and available but found themselves continually disappointed by the random caliber of attendees sitting across from them.Bumble offers the same look-and-swipe methodology as Tinder, but a woman has to make the first move.If she doesn’t send a message to a potential beau within 24 hours, the opportunity passes.
What a great way to unwind after a long work week..kick off a night on the town!
