Events just for singles

Speed Dating, Parties & getting out there

Supported events to make friends and get out in the world

Speed Dating

 

Unlike the popular idea of speed dating events, Sen's Speed Dating events are people-focused, not numbers focused. They are designed to be as easy and approachable as possible for people who are shy or who have social anxiety, and most importantly are focused on connection and valuing actual conversations.

Small groups of maximum 10 couples, private venues so you're not in a fishbowl, and support to make it as easy as possible to chat to new people.

Social Dinners

 

Let's get fed!

Hosted at some of Newy's fave haunts we indulge in three courses of food while we chat with new people and expand our social worlds. We mix up the seating arrangements to make sure you get a chance to sit next to a couple of people through the night and provide conversational prompts and games so there's never a dull moment and you're not stuck twiddling your thumbs trying to figure out how to look cool. Just be you.

 

All ages welcome.  Dietary requirements are catered for if you give us enough notice.

What other people are saying...

Superb night! I met some really nice guys. Can't wait to go on some dates! Thanks for putting it on Milly.

 

- M. Female, 30s

Been to a couple of the mixers and had a really good night, talked to some truly lovely people. After the event we went on to a local pub to listened to a band and partied on. The host makes sure the event is safe and friendly and is helpful in getting people talking with each other.

Thanks Milly, great night!

Also some small feedback on the venue - I’d been to a previous speed event of yours at the Depot venue - I found the layout and general feel of the monk venue much more friendly and laid back. 

I had a great time at both nights, either way, but figured I’d let you know I liked the change.

-- S. Male, 20s

Was a fun night. Nice people there and nice to meet you as well. The venue was perfect I thought. It was the first time I've tried speed dating but it was good fun and I'd definitely try it again. 

-- D. Male, 30s

Very well organised and lovely venue. Really enjoyed it. Thank you :) 

-- S

Great experience! Thank you :)

I attended a 30-40’s speed dating night back in December, and although nothing eventuated from it, I still had a great time and met some some really nice genuine people. My first thoughts on it all was that it was very well organised, and professionally run in a very relaxed environment.....I look forward to more events as such. And thankyou again Milly for doing a great job.

-- D. Male, 40s

So far I have been to a speed dating event and a singles mixer and have had a great time meeting new people. Milly is an awesome host and always makes everyone feel at ease. I am looking forward to my next singles mixer next week. 😊

-- S. Female, 50s

I'm 29 and I met my gf who is 38 there couldn't recommend this way of meeting a potential partner high enough!

-- K. Male, 20s

Great night out, I had a lot of fun and I would recommend this event for those who enjoy meeting new people. Everyone was friendly and its a good amount of time to work out if you would like to go on a date. Most the men were in the upper end of the age  bracket so if I went again I would go the age bracket below. I went on a lovely date with a man I wouldn't have met if I didn't give speed dating a crack so it was definately worth doing.

-- J. Female, 30s

I recently tried the Speed Dating in Newcastle. I had a fun time and met some cool people. Nothing came of it romantically but it was a great way of meeting new people as I'm originally from Sydney. I wouldn't say I'm a chatty person but I felt comfortable enough to converse through the event. I'd do it again. 😀

-- S. Male, 30s

Milly i love your events and love the passion you put into them. please don't stop being an amazing human being!
