Speed-dating aka multi-mini-interview type date format for mature folks like usPage 1 of 1    
Anyone tried speed-dating services for people in our age group? Do any actually exist?

I've done a lot of multi-mini-interview things for job applications but never tried it as a speed-dating type of thing. If it's still a thing. ;-)

Do any actually exist?


They exist here in Southern California.

From the website of one of them:

"About Speed Dating LA

I have never been to any.
Most speed dating events here generally charge a $30-$40 entrance fee, and most are for ages 20s to 40s, with a few age 50s events thrown in.

The vast majority of speed dating and/or lock & key events in the greater Jax area are all run by the same person. I have been friends with her for ages therefore I have attended a number of them. I don't normally plan on it but she will text me if she needs another woman or needs someone to help run one of the tables or work the check-in. Sometimes they are interesting and sometimes not so much. - like regular dating.

There are speed dating events that have certain target audiences. Age, race, religion, lifestyle, political beliefs etc.

I think speed dating would be fun to try. I would just hope I didn't come across someone who was really shy and not very talkative. That might be awkward. I haven't heard of any speed dating events in these parts in a long time.

It may not work well for me as I'm extremely opinionated and talkative. She may have a hard time getting in a word or may get turned off quickly...

There's one outfit that's appearing a lot in the media here called Cityswoon:

https://cityswoon.com.au/

Though a check on their website shows they only seem to organise events in large cities (basically state capitals) not regional areas.

Just curious as I've never tried speed-dating and probably would find it very imtimidating. But until I tried it I wouldn't really know what it's like.
