Meet real people in real life

No algorithms to determine your match; you will be in the driver seat to decide who you want to connect with. Stop swiping and start talking with real people today.

If you find it difficult to meet people, exhausted of the online dating scene, or a serial dater then we invite you to an alternative - a community of like-minded individuals that can meet and connect in stylish places. Our hosts are friendly and personable and our service is exceptional. At Spark Dating events, food and drinks are served to your table. Your time is precious and should be used to find connections, not wait at the bar for food and drinks.

Speed Dating Tips

  1. Stay hydrated. Always have a drink in your hand. Speed dating can involve a lot of talking and thirst can build up. Water, beer, wine or coffee are all good choices.

  2. Stay sober. Know your limit and don’t overdo it. Drunk dating means you will probably end up saying things you would regret. If you are feeling a bit too tipsy, try water, coffee, or hot chocolate.

  3. Prepare some interesting questions. Where someone works or someone’s favorite food is rarely a good indicator of a match. Research online and try coming up with some fun questions.

  4. Come early. Be prepared for traffic and parking issues. You don’t want to be that person that is stuck in traffic while the event is happening. Enjoy our complimentary appetizers and drinks. Feel free to mingle with other participants before the event starts. Who knows? Maybe you’ll find a match before the event starts.

  5. Be kind. We have a zero tolerance policy for rudeness. If you are marked as someone who is rude by other daters and verified by our Spark team, you will not be invited to future events.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: On the posting it reads "meet up to 26 depending on event”. Does this mean I might only meet 5 singles?

A: No. Any event that is held is always sold out. However, when having that many people attend an event, there is a chance that not everyone will make it. We usually overbook to compensate for that, so you could meet a few more singles, or maybe a few less.


Q: At 39, I am over the age limit for your 28-38 group. Am I still eligible to participate in this group?

A: We will allow for one year older or younger than the specified age group. Depending on the situation, we may allow exception. In order to ensure the satisfaction of all participants, we ask that you comply with this condition.


Q: Is there a fee for each "successful" match?

A: No, your matches are included in the initial fee. There are no additional or hidden charges for this service.


Q: I did not get an email

A: If you have a Junk mail filter enabled, our mail might have been redirected to your junk mail folder. To prevent emails from Spark Dating being redirected to your junk mail folder, please add info.sparkdating@gmail.com to your email address book and/or safe list.


Q: Does Spark Dating screen participants?

A: Spark Dating does not screen participants. To ensure your safety, we strongly encourage you to take the same precautions you would take in meeting any new person.
