How InReal Life Co’s speed dating events work

The Singles’ Mixer & Speed Dating meetup creates a private and intimate setting for eligible singles to meet and engage in a relaxed speed dating activity. The concept is designed to suit a variety of social preferences and tastes, and the dress code is smart casual.

During the speed dating session, participants are rotated to meet each other over a series of short “dates” of 7 minutes each. After the event, each participant can select up to 3 people they would like to meet again, confidentially on a digital form. Where there is a mutual interest, the participants will be notified within 24 hours after the event and their contact details exchanged.

“From my observation with myself and others in my network, people are fatigued with dating apps and the digital space when it comes to finding love,” explains Thina Thembani, founder of In Real Life Co. “This initiative aims to revive dating to become more of a tangible experience again.”
