OTTAWA – NEW BEGINNINGS! Video Speed Dating
Even a pandemic couldn’t stop LOVE from happening!
Last year, amidst a global crisis, we brought together hundreds of new couples who are kicking off this new year together with glowing hearts and big smiles.
This year will be even better. Our first event of 2021 is brimming with excitement, hope and positivity! Come enjoy an evening of lively conversations over a series of one-on-one video dates with eligible singles who are SO ready to embrace… a very new beginning!
Make the most of this digital experience with our curated recommendations:
NEW VIDEO PLATFORM ALERT!
We have exciting news! We have switched over to a new video platform that is sure to enhance your digital dating experience! There’s no software to download (and no more zoom!) – everything is run easily and directly on your internet browser.
Please note: It is highly recommended to use a computer or laptop on this new platform. You can still attend from your phone or tablet using your internet browser app but it will not be an optimal experience. However, an app is coming soon, so the optimal speed dating experience for mobile-only users is just around the corner.
Start 2021 off on the right note with the ‘Chillout 2021’ playlist on Spotify! Turn up the tunes before the event and then set the volume to low while you speed date away. Click here to access the playlist directly. Spotify app required.
When life gives you lemons, we say, make a Lemon Drop Martini! (details below)
- 2 ounces quality vodka
- 3/4 ounce Cointreau or Triple Sec
- 1 ounce fresh squeezed lemon
- 3/4 ounce simple syrup
- If you fancy, mix together some sugar and lemon zest for the glass rim
Directions: Moisten the rim of a chilled martini glass with the juiced lemon, turn the glass upside down and twist into the lemon sugar, set aside. Next, add vodka, cointreau (or triple sec), lemon juice, simple syrup and a handful of ice to a cocktail shaker. Shake for 30 seconds or until very cold. Strain into the prepared martini glass and serve immediately.
Not feeling adventurous? Stick to a simple vodka-lemonade.
If you’re sober or doing Dry January: Lemonade on ice in a nice glass will do the trick!
Take on the new year in style! Throw on a bright, colourful or funky sweater for this event.
You might be thinking… “I’m attending from home, so I don’t need to dress up.” but it’s just the opposite! Be comfortable and relaxed but remember this is still a dating event so make sure you look great!
Pro Tip: People can tell when you’ve made an effort and, when it comes to dating, that’s important. Looking your best will make you feel your best and therefore, always result in more and/or better matches. Remember, you never get a second chance to make a first impression!
