This copy is for your personal non-commercial use only. Ben Yeung never had much luck with dating apps. Since November, Yeung has been attending one dating event per month through a new organization called Toronto Dating Hub. Andrea Lo is the founder of Toronto Dating Hub and hosts each event.
Toronto Dating Hub is just one of many online dating operations that are hosting virtual events for singles. While Matt Paoli first started Flare Events as an in-person speed dating company in February , he quickly pivoted to a virtual platform during the pandemic.
Flare hosts its speed-dating events through Zoom. They typically have 10 to 14 participants and begin with a half-hour icebreaker conversation. Then the host puts participants into breakout rooms for eight-minute, one-on-one chats to get to know each other. During the event, participants use an online scorecard to log their interests.
Then Paoli sends out contact information for matches after the event. Celebrity matchmaker and online dating expert Carmelia Ray is a fan of online dating events. It is saving so much time. She also recommends ensuring that you have enough water, beverages and snacks nearby to keep you fuelled throughout the event. Think of it as a marathon. You really, truly, have to get psyched up for these dates so that you can give it your best. For those feeling nervous about participating in an online speed-dating event, she suggests having a few starter questions ready to ask people based on their interests, like sports or the arts.
After that, Ray recommends making the best use of your time to cover deal-breaker questions, like whether you want to have kids. That really resonated with me.
