Nerd Speed DatingOkay, so the time has come for us to explore new speed dating themes that would attract lots of singles to participate. We had an "Active & Athletic Singles" event in August. It was a huge success with lots of matches. It was the first of its kind by NY Minute Dating and people are still writing happy testimonials to us about the people they met at the event.

Our popular, sold-out themes are usually ethnic based, like Russian speed dating, Latino speed dating, Asian speed dating, and we sometimes try something different like "Speed Dating for Divorced Singles."
