LGBTQ+ Speed Dating 20s & 30s

Thursday 4th November 7pm | $29 includes std drink | Stock Exchange Hotel 166 Charlotte St Brisbane

For this event – an Ignite Dating first – we are welcoming all people of LGBTQ+ to come speed dating. Whilst we have run lesbian speed dating before, on this night we are welcoming everyone under the LGBTQ+ banner.  Meet ~7 singles one after another with dates going between six and eight minutes. If you match with your partner your contact details will be exchanged the next day via email (from the host). If the love bug doesn’t bite, but you’d like a friendship, you can choose to match as a friend. You can also choose between providing a phone number or email address to potential matches.

Please take note though that for speed dating to work we do need a certain number of people interested in each group. We are confident of getting 8+ gay males and a similar number of lesbians which will mean we can run those two speed dating sessions simultaneously (16 people in total) and you would meet 7+ potential partners. For other groups we will communicate with you to gauge interest and numbers and if there is enough interest we could run another speed dating session.

Let us know in the notes section of the form below which group you’d like to speed date in.

As in a way the customers are the product, we can't operate with a refund policy when people change their minds. However if you are unable to attend for reasons such as having covid-19, you can use your payment as credit for other events. Send us a contact on our contact page. If the singles event is cancelled due to something like a global pandemic, we will of course offer a prompt refund.

The cart is located in the top right hand corner of the screen (under the = menu on a phone). Click on that and then you can delete tickets in your cart.  

This is a very frequently asked question (unlike some of the others :) ). Yes we do have many people coming by themselves - our events are a great place to make mates as well as dates!

But we understand that it can be difficult turning up by yourself so sometimes we'll have a pre-event meet and greet for people who come by themselves. 

Dress to impress - it's not the door man's judgment you need to worry about, it's the person sitting opposite you. 

Give people a chance! Matching someone isn't an engagement - it simply allows you to continue your conversation past the six minutes. You aren't even committed to a date once you match. And no.

Speed dating allows you to meet 10 or more people in a short amount of time (hence the word speed). The host will time each date (6-8 minutes) and ensure everyone moves on to the next person. Often you can get a feel for a person's energy very quickly face to face, whereas it may be impossible after communicating online for weeks, if not months.

 

At a speed dating event in Brisbane you'll fill in a match card (ticking a person is like swiping right) which you'll hand in, and the following day you'll be informed of your matches, and what their (chosen) contact details are. You can choose to match a person as 'date' or 'friend' (or neither). If one person looking for love ticks date, and one happy with a friendship ticks friend - you will each be matched as a friend. Therefore we request that you don't ask people you are speed dating for their contact details, as it is unnecessary and may put dates 'on the spot'.

We will email you your matches by the following day. Be sure to check your spam/junk folder as it can sometimes end up there. If you don't hear from us by the end of the day, feel free to send us a contact (see the footer on the website for options) - people have been known to submit emails with typos in them in the past.   

We only hand out contact details at speed dating when BOTH parties match with each other. So unless you matched with your date you have nothing to fear. If one party ticks ‘date’ and one ticks ‘friend’ you will be matched as a friend.
