First Sight Date, a speed-dating initiative organized by a local woman, aims to help you find your perfect match. Their next speeding dating sessions are set to take place on Thursday 2 (ages 32+) and 9 March (ages 24 – 32), as well as Saturday 25 March. Saturday’s event is only eligible for dog owners. Spaces fill quickly (with a deadline two days before each date) and prospective attendees must RSVP, with selected guests receiving additional details by mail. Entry is set at 70 TL.
From the organizer:
Meet with locals, socialize and arrange a proper date!
Online dating has served us for many years, but lately we think it’s losing a bit of its magic. The field is overrun with too many fake identities, useless account and hit or miss in-person encounters. Why should we waste our precious time using impersonal apps?
Having asked these questions ourselves, we realize it’s time to get back to our roots. Face-to-face flirting, getting to know each other and being able to hear and see our potential partner… we SAY YES to speed dating!
Everyone has their own idea of how speed dating should work and ours is different to many others.
We carefully choose participants and moderate the event to ensure you feel safe and secure.
To best provide a compatible and social environment, we focus closely on the application process. We ask that prospective attendees include a Facebook profile and a brief bit of information about themselves.
As we wish to maintain a sense of privacy and intrigue, the exact location will only be provided to confirmed guests, so shhhh!
Entry is 70 TL.
With a maximum of 30 people, each date round is slotted for 4 minutes. Guests can be confident that the night’s proceedings will take no longer than 2 hours.
