Duo Dater is a site for those who find the keystones of traditional dating websites -- messaging potential matches, meeting a person one-on-one, writing a lengthy profile about oneself -- "intimidating and awkward," in Flachner's words. By making it a double date, which Duo Dater wants to help you organize.
When it comes to going to a reputable speed dating event, you want to make sure that you are going to an event which is run by a good company.
Not just any company, but a company which has been referred by others and can say “you should give them a try” is what you should be looking for. They have been running speed dating events since 2005 and providing good customer service is their top priority. 40% of their attendees have been referred by someone else.
Having a friend with you on a date can help your real personality come through, Flachner says.
Actually, the way Flachner frames it, Duo Dater is kind of like the bowl of porridge from Goldilocks that is "just right." One-on-one dating sites like and OKCupid are intimidating and awkward; group dating sites like the three-on-three Grouper and up-to-ten-at-a-time Ignighter are too large to make a real connection and too difficult to coordinate logistics-wise.
Here we list the largest national sites where you can filter the events by city so that you know exactly what's taking place close to you in 2015 and check availability right there. The first impression counts: stay true to yourself when choosing your outfit. Although you will be nervous, try to stay calm, look your partners into his/her eyes and smile. Don’t think about what to say beforehand or even memorise a certain text. You might need several speed dates/blind dates and will surely gain experience that will help you next time.

In April 2010, Time Out reported that the website is under construction for updates, but will remain free when it is in operation again.
Named after the Will Smith film about a romantic guru who helps singles find love, the idea for the app was inspired after founder Anton Gu met a mutual friend one night but felt too bashful to ask his chums for her number.'The next day I was sitting at home, thinking how could I get in touch with her.
Short of asking our mutual friend for her number and being like “Hey, I’m that guy at the gig last night, I’d like to take you out”, I had nothing. Matchmaking is popular in their culture, people understand the concept straight away and tell their friends about it.
They can perhaps gauge your skin color or hair color, but you can’t get much more detailed than that.
You’ll then be asked for the times you have free and you’d prefer to go on Crazy Blind Dates, as well as a location you’d like to go.
