I've heard many gay singles say they wish their dating lives didn't rely so heavily on succeeding in the bar scene. OnSpeedDating and I both offer tried-and-true events and techniques that relieve social pressures
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. "In terms of finding fulfilling or lasting relationships, gay and lesbian singles face the same challenges as straight singles. They need the same resources as heterosexuals, but comparable support just isn't available," explains Laurie Davis, Online Dating Coach and Founder of eFlirtExpert.com.
It wasn't available until now. NYC based OnSpeedDating.Com has ramped up it's offering of lesbian and gay speed dating events to include seven new "themed" events. New additions to the OnSpeedDating menu are a "Gay Jock" night for athletic, gym-lovin', sport-playin' men, "Femme for Femme" speed dating for single, sexy, femme, lipstick lesbians, "Corporate America" night for professional gay singles and "Asian Persuasion" night for gay Asian men/women and the single men/women that LOVE them.
"I've heard many gay singles say they wish their dating lives didn't rely so heavily on succeeding in the bar scene. OnSpeedDating 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 OnSpeedDating'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. "We even offer a "Mr./Mrs. Right Now" singles mixer for gay singles looking for a fling and a 'Jewish Boy's Night'," says OnSpeedDating 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, OnSpeedDating 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. Drink specials are also part of the OnSpeedDating package and offered to daters at each host venue.
