Speed dating event in the Comox Valley in February

Pre-event webinar Feb. 9 will guide newcomers through the process

This February, local singles are invited to an evening of mini-dates at the 3rd Annual Cupid’s Speed Dating. Fresh Connections’ social events are an excellent opportunity to have some fun and meet new people.

Comox Valley’s speed dating takes place on three nights for three age ranges (including 55+), Feb. 27, 28, and 29 at 7 p.m. at Rhodos Bistro. Participants are encouraged to sign up in advance, as door tickets will be $5 more if available. Tickets are available online at www.FreshConnections.ca/SinglesEvents

Speed dating is an excellent way to connect with lots of locals all in one evening. Whether it’s a hiking companion, dance partner, or romantic connection, the possibilities and opportunities are endless. Fresh Connections is also offering a webinar on Feb. 9 with tips for successful speed dates, so participants can feel confident and comfortable during the event.

Speed dating events are also to be held in Victoria (Sweetheart’s Speed Dating, Feb. 13 – 15) and in Nanaimo (Valentine’s Speed Dating, Feb. 20 – 22).

While Fresh Connections’ events are generally inclusive for all relationship types, speed dating is for those seeking a man:woman relationship.

Fresh Connections offers local singles the opportunity to connect in fun and meaningful ways, face-to-face through low pressure, interactive group events, activities, and meet-ups. Since starting this grassroots venture in 2017, they have hosted dozens of fun events from Victoria to Campbell River, including barbecues, bowling, and holiday mixers.

For more information about speed dating or other singles events around Vancouver Island, visit www.FreshConnections.ca or reach out at info@FreshConnections.ca, or on Facebook at “Vancouver Island Singles – Fresh Connections.”
