Speed dating plus size nyc
No, I am not a “hose chaser,” but what damsel couldn't use a little rescuing now and again, ammirite?
The party was open to all women in their 20s, 30s and 40s (for online, at the door), but the men had to be either active or retired firefighters, paramedics, fire EMS or search and rescue. The day of the party, I wasn't really feeling myself and my insecurities nibbled at me like Twitter troll in front of a dangling Selina Gomez bikini pic, but a few texts with my mom and the quick train ride to the Garment District eased my nerves.
Some people are dating purely for the stories, whether they know it or not. In New York, Tinder is so accepted as a means of meeting that elusive attractive individual who lives three blocks from you and ALSO loves hamentashen, you might not even lie to your grandparents about it. There’s a ton of awesome stuff to do in the city, and since you probably have an awesome and more chill time doing it with your established friends, you’re not likely to risk doing anything "fun" on your list with a potentially lame stranger. If the date goes badly, inevitably you end up doing something super awkward like saying goodbye and then walking to the train in the same direction and slowly trying to fall back.
Or to take a magical ride on Jane’s Carousel, or reserve a table at that new restaurant, or hit the concert they’ve been wanting to see. Maybe you ask to be set up with a friend of a friend. Again, I tip my hat to you, but this is increasingly not how it works here. When a couple in a different city recounts the story of how they met, they would often rather lie and tell you it was in a strip club than suffer e-shame. After you’ve gone to the bars, and sent all the PMs, and swiped to the right on anyone who isn’t in a picture with their mom or a tiger (it happens! Or did you not shave your legs/chest in an attempt to behave, but now you’re screwed because they’re hot and smart and you’re going home with them anyway?
Good venue (not too loud), good hosts, keep up the good work! I talked myself out of speed dating for a solid 3 years! The venue was great, I would definitely go back on a regular night! I really liked it and would recommend it to my friends.
And if your neighborhood happens to be more than three stops outside Manhattan? Yes, New Yorkers also pass on prospective mates because they're too nice, needy, live in a neighborhood that’s inconvenient, or are just plain weird. You’re usually meeting at the bar/restaurant/coffee shop. What if it’s one of the eight months a year when it’s freezing or those other four when it’s unbearably humid?The first thing I did when I arrived at Hudson Station, 440 9th Ave., Manhattan, at 8 p.m. One story of a bad Garden State date had me practically crying from laughter. I didn't see any tacos at this party, but wait staff passed trays of appetizers like quesadillas and (one of my favorites) boneless wing bites. " or "Which of these isn't a legit movie about firefighters?Hudson Station is not The Jane Hotel, where the Social Concierge mixer was held, and that was both good and bad. " I didn’t need the card because Tim and I started chatting immediately. Guys were coming up and bullshitting, busting ass and just being really fun to talk to.Everything was so much easier than I thought and the company is extremely well-organized. I got to talk to both the hosts and they were soooooo calm and on top of things. This event rocked, you guys are the best and have delievered once again. The people are friendly and the event itself was enjoyable. The hosts were helpful and the dates were very attentive and responsive. I've been to many of your events and they're always well run. I always enjoy the events and have recommended them to friends over the last year or so. I was pretty nervous about coming to it, as I've gone to other speed-dating events and they were a disaster!OUR HOSTS WERE ABSOLUTELY FANTASTICALLY INCREDIBLE. You must do a marathon event 40 women atleast once a month, that would be awesome! Have done other dating companies but this one is the best. The lounge had a very good vibe, as did the girls at the event. I thought it was a great place: great food, cozy, intimate. I was impressed by your event because the quality of people in attendance was stellar. The guys were great, and there was a warm atmosphere to the whole event. I'm happy to report that I met someone and we have been dating since the event.
