Saf - Singles Party

"I went to an Encounter Dating trivia night and had never been speed dating or anything of the sorts but was keen for something more genuine and natural than an app- had so much fun and met some really lovely people! Everything was super well-organised to encourage conversation and make everyone feel at ease, and the hosts were fantastic! Definitely recommend both men and women give it a go, you won't regret it :)"

Melissa - Speed Dating Trivia

"Great night of fun! Went to Trivia Speed Dating at the Crows Nest hotel. People from all backgrounds and good mix of age. Great way to meet new people. Will go again!"

Dana - Speed Dating Trivia

"I was very happy with my experience with Encounter Dating. Very well organised and it was pleasant to see so many kind people. I love how they arrange their events so they are always fun and make you feel relaxed."

Natalia - Friday Night Drinks

"Recently I attended an Encounter singles night for over 40’s at the Oaks Hotel. I’d never been to a singles night before and was a little apprehensive at first. However I was soon at ease, being greeted very warmly by the hosts. The venue was very suitable, with a section dedicated to the event whilst immediately accessible to the rest of the hotel. This made it feel just like a drink at a bar rather than a singles night. I will certainly be attending the next venue and would highly recommend Encounter to other singles."

Scott - Singles Party

"Attended an event north shore at The Oaks Hotel, well facilitated and fun evening."

Paul - Singles Party

"I had a fun night and everyone was really friendly. Very nicely organised event and would certainly go again."

Lauren - Friday Night Drinks

"The event and the venue were good! I personally liked it a lot better than speed dating (more relaxed, talk to whoever you want) Thanks for organising."

Richard - Friday Night Drinks

"I went to an Encounter Dating Singles Mixer event. As it was the first singles event I had been to I was a bit nervous, but the hosts made me feel really welcome. The event itself was really well organised and I ended up having a fun night and met some interesting people. Would be very happy to attend another event organised by these guys."

Nic - Friday Night Drinks

"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."

Desiree - Singles Party

"It was a great event, probably the best singles event I've been to! Thanks for organising, I'll keep an eye out for future events if still single."

Matt - Singles Party

"Thanks to one of your past events in Bondi, I now have a girlfriend! I'm very excited and thankful to you both for bringing us together :)"

Michael - Speed Dating

"I had a great time. Angela was a great guide and the kayaking allowed a lot of opportunity for everyone to interact. The stop on the beach was perfect, some of us went for a swim and then we enjoyed our morning tea. Swapping partners was also good as you got to chat a bit more to someone different although the group stay pretty close together so it's easy to chat to people in other kayaks. We then all went for lunch together at a local cafe. I would definitely do it again and would highly recommend it to others."

Jessica - Singles Kayaking

"The night was great! Definitely a different and creative way to meet new people."

Maree - Speed Dating Trivia

"It was great fun! We were lucky with the weather too... it was really well organised and our instructor was good. It was probably just the right amount of time as well and a good activity because it requires teamwork. It helped having the morning tea in the middle. Saturday morning is a good time to host an event as It requires commitment."
