What our guests have to say...
"I would like to thank Encounter Dating for a great night. Not only did I have a chance to meet new people, I met a lovely girl at your Sydney speed dating event. We have since been seeing each other and it has been amazing. This would not have been possible without the great people at Encounter Dating."
Encounter Dating is Sydney's #1 Speed Dating & Singles Events Co. We host weekly Speed Dating Events, Singles Dinners and monthly Singles Parties.
Speed Dating Sydney
We've re-invented speed dating by getting rid of all the boring parts and only keeping the best bits. Gone are the 'interview style' pens and papers and the pressure of having to mark your date as a 'yes' or a 'no' right there on the spot. Instead, at our speed dating events you can just relax and focus on getting to know each of your dates and at the end of the night in your own time, you can easily and discretely select who you would like to see again through our matching platform Encounter Match.
Our singles events have become very popular with people who are over the dating apps and are now wanting to meet like-minded singles IRL, not online. We've partnered with the best venues around to host our singles events and speed dating in private areas reserved exclusively for our guests.
Our singles parties are designed to make it super easy for you to meet lots of other singles in one night! Everyone is free to mingle and chat with anyone they wish and we include a welcome drink and an optional fun icebreaker game to help you to meet as many of the other guests as possible.
Singles Dinner Parties
Our dinner parties are all about having a fun night out and meeting new people in a relaxed environment with other singles looking to date. On arrival you will be introduced to everyone by our host. You will then join all the guests for a drinks reception before a sit down dinner.
We'll arrange for the men to swap seats once, so that you will sit next to four different people of the opposite sex during the dinner. After the dinner everyone is free to stay around for drinks and chat further with anyone you would like to get to know better.
Singles Trivia Nights
Our singles trivia nights are loads of fun and people are often more relaxed than traditional speed dating. Each table of male and female team mates will have some fun trivia questions and puzzles to solve as a group. At the end of each round, the men stand up and move on to a new table to meet a new group of ladies to team up with for the next round of trivia questions and so on. There will be prizes for the winning male and female teams and time to socialise with everyone at the end. You'll be able to select anyone you would like to see again using our matching platform after the event.
