Nyc asian speed dating event
Follow along as we lift the curtain on modern love in China at the 24th Matchmaking Festival in Shanghai.New York, NY (Vocus) February 24, 2010 Despite New York having the largest gay and lesbian population estimated at almost 300,000, a large majority of whom are single, the “City With Everything” seems to have a pretty major void when it comes to gay and lesbian dating services and singles events.
To avoid ending up at the bottom of the barrel, many Chinese millennials have turned to a centuries-old tradition: matchmaking.It is a formalized process in which the participants are broken up into pairs and rotate partners every 3-8 minutes (depending on the event).Each pair sits down and gets to know one another, or “date”.In China, the most offensive thing to call a millennial isn't a profanity — it's "leftover." Thanks to a serious gender imbalance and a massive migration from the countryside to the cities, fewer young Chinese people are getting married — and China's government is worried about it.The population of unmarried adults, according to the latest national census, reached 249 million in 2010.“I’ve heard many gay singles say they wish their dating lives didn’t rely so heavily on succeeding in the bar scene.
On Speed Dating and I both offer tried-and-true events and techniques that relieve social pressures,” explains Davis.
Also available for both lesbian and gay singles is On Speed Dating’s very superficial yet at the same time super “fab”, “HOT or NOT” speed dating mixer where lesbian and gay singles must be pre-approved by submitting a photo to attend, “HUNG” speed dating for gay men and a “Butch/Femme” speed dating event for single lesbian and bi-sexual women. Right Now” singles mixer for gay singles looking for a fling and a ‘Jewish Boy’s Night’,” says On Speed Dating Co-Founder, Amber Soletti.
“We love the gays and we want to, pardon the pun, be ‘in bed’ with the NY gay community in a major way and that’s why we’re giving gay and lesbian singles the types of events they are looking for, been asking for and deserve,” explains Soletti.
In regards to cost, On Speed Dating events can run gay singles anywhere from $ 25-$ 40 depending on the event and takes places at local NYC lounges and bars.
A small investment that can potentially lead to finding your match, not to mention the fact that being in a safe dating environment is priceless.
