Encounter Dating hosts Melbourne speed dating events, singles parties, singles dinners, wine tastings and trivia nights.
Compared to online dating, you tend to know in a matter of minutes if you 'click' with someone when meeting face-to-face.
We also offer an affordable matchmaking service arranging blind dates for those who would like our matchmaker's help to find that someone special. We're all about connecting singles in real life at fun dating events with other like-minded singles.

What our guests have to say about our singles events!
"I thoroughly enjoyed the event. A great social function for singles to meet in a great social and relaxed atmosphere. Many thanks to the organisers. The matching platform is also great."
Encounter Dating is Melbourne's #1 singles events company and we specialise in running singles parties, speed dating events and arranging blind dates.
Singles Events Melbourne
Our Melbourne singles events are all about having fun and meeting new people while hopefully finding a potential partner. We've partnered with the best venues in town to host our singles events in private areas reserved exclusively for our guests.
Speed Dating Melbourne
We've re-invented speed dating in Melbourne by getting rid of all the boring parts and only keeping the best bits. Gone are the name tags, 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.
Singles Parties Melbourne
Our Melbourne singles parties are are all about having a fun night out with other like-minded singles. Everyone is free to mingle and chat with anyone they wish and we often include an optional icebreaker to help you to meet as many of the other guests as possible. You can use our matching platform after the event to select those you would like to see again.
Singles Trivia Nights Melbourne
Our Melbourne 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.
Singles Dinners Melbourne
Our Melbourne singles dinner parties start with a drinks reception, where you will be introduced to everyone by our host. You will then join all the guests for a sit down dinner. After the main course the men swap places to different seats. This way you sit next to four people of the opposite sex during dinner. If you would like to meet a fellow guest again at a later date, you can make your own arrangements. But if the opportunity does not arise over dinner, that is not a problem. You can use our matching platform after the event to select those you would like to see again.
