"I want to share my story of success. I attended the Encounter Dating launch party at the Greenwood Hotel. I met Justin there. We are now happily engaged and living together with our respective children. At the time we were both single parents, disillusioned with the online dating world. We were both familiar with the Greenwood. We instantly connected and have been inseparable since. We are very grateful for to Encounter Dating for bringing us together."

Encounter Dating is Sydney's #1 singles events company and we specialise in running singles parties and speed dating events in Sydney.  ​

Singles Events Sydney

Our Sydney singles events are all about having fun and meeting new people while hopefully finding a potential partner. ​We've partnered with the best venues to host our singles events in private areas reserved exclusively for our guests.

Speed Dating Sydney

We've re-invented Sydney speed dating events 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 Sydney

Our singles parties in Sydney 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

Our Sydney 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 Sydney

Our Sydney 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.
