I'm happy to inform that in-spite of my reservations I attended your event on Feb. 24, 2012 with an open mind and I was incredibly surprised! That night I met my now husband. We hit it off from the start and were engaged 9 months later. We now have a beautiful daughter named Karlee Mia, who would have never come to be had I not attended that evening (our first and only speed dating experience).

Surprisingly enough, it only took me 4 minutes to know I had found the one (even though at the event he tried opening my lock 3 times and none of them worked :-)

I know my wonderful story (if I do say so myself :) will not be the case for everyone, but it is a possibility. I always tell my friends who are workaholics (like I was) to give your events a chance because, if nothing else, it will allow them to know who they are not compatible with in less than 4 minutes, preventing them from investing unnecessary time on someone who won’t be long term (if that’s what they’re looking for). So thank you for taking the time to set these gatherings- they really do change lives.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart,

Karina & Randy

Charlemayne and I met on October 5, 2011 at a Professionals in the City seated speed dating event for Black singles at Chi-Cha Lounge in DC. He heard about the event from a friend, and I decided to go because a group of my sorority sisters were attending. Neither one of us expected anything from the event, but went with open minds. We went on our first official date a couple weeks later (October 24, 2011) at Gazuza Lounge and needless to say, we hit it off because 2 years and 2 days later, on October 26, 2013, we were married at the Ronald Reagan Building in Washington, DC! Thank you for hosting the event that put us together.
