So, Speed Dating Is Making a Comeback?

Here’s how kink and Tantra communities are making their way back to speed dating.

Throughout the pandemic, virtual dates and dating apps were all the hype. But now that pandemic life is evolving, popular event platform Eventbrite, has seen a “63% surge in speed dating events hosted on the platform” compared to the prior year.

Speed dating has undergone a facelift and become a hot commodity among many different communities. On Eventbrite’s platform, curious singles can find creative speed options like Tantra Speed Dating, a kink-friendly Queer Comedy night that transitions into a dating event and an event in Central Park, New York for nature lovers. If you’re still not interested in IRL dating due to the pandemic, there are hundreds of virtual events, as well.

With this dating style, you can meet several people and truly weigh your options without putting all of your eggs in one basket or mindlessly swiping on a dating app.

For women, there are many social pressures that can discourage dating multiple people until you find the right mate(s). When speed dating, everyone you’re dating is open to exploring and seeing other people, to an extent. When you pair that with niche-based events such as kink and Tantra, you’re more likely to meet partners with similar interests. This can evoke a sense of community — unless you believe opposites attract.

If you’re over dating apps, make your way to Eventbrite to find your next speed dating event.
