We at Speed Portland Dating, do things a wee bit differently. We are British founded and inspired but our daters are just like you. We tend to draw a crowd that is intelligent and amusing, sophisticated and adventurous, while always being cheeky.
We are in part defined by our venues and our crowd reflects such. Simply select the EVENT SCHEDULE tab on the homepage for a listing of our events. In the 10 years we have had the pleasure of serving daters we've noticed the nicer a dater is to us, our hosts and each other, the more matches they get.
If we don't think a dater is someone that fellow daters would get on with - we'll respectfully decline service and reserve the right to do so. We think 'Meet-Up' is a lovely free service that gives those of similar interests the opportunity to connect. Also, it is a good idea to keep checking back on our website as sometimes reservations become available at the last minute. Please try to avoid doing anything unsafe in your attempt to arrive to the event on time - we do like to wait for all participants to arrive.
We do question businesses that promote their events through "Meet-Up" groups - only to redirect you to their own website. This may cause an event to start late but we feel a perfect opportunity to chat up the hosts, have a lovely refreshment and settle in. You checked each other on your scorecards and your email address will be exchanged with this person 24 hours after the event.
Join us in the ‘senior speed dating’ movement by visiting our Host A Dating Event page—and make a difference in the hearts and desires of older adults in your community!
SPEED D8ING, hosted by Maine Educationalists on Sexual Harmony, is not your average dating event.
Much like a private club, not every dater is for us.
After a Valentine’s Day screening of the film at the historic Hollywood Theatre in Portland, OR, sixteen men and women took a chance, meeting for drinks and 5-minute ‘dates’ in a romantically-decorated setting, in search of new friends and more!
SPEED D8ING is meant to create space where people can play, connect, catch up, share their experience, make friends, find lovers, and to exist in a space that is made to foster their needs as d8ers and the ways they like to MESH!
MESH sees the value in coalition and collective form.
We don’t find anything romantic about name tags, microphones and whistles – so we don’t use them! Daters that don’t like to settle and tend to set the trend rather than follow it. You will be sent a confirmation from us and your name will be noted on our Guest List.~~Do you screen your speed daters?
