Oakland: Lesbian/Bi Single Mingle – Personalized Speed Dating , Sat, March 7th, 6pm

Do you want to meet more women, actually have conversations with them and not have to yell over the music? Then this event is just for you.

Date a person, not an app.

Specifically for women of all types, this Lesbian/Bi Speed Dating in Oakland is open to all women looking for a woman lover, wanting to make new friends or just have a good time.  This event is inclusive of bisexual, trans women and non-binary folks who feel a connection to the identity of “woman” and would like to meet more women. While we focus on dating, any woman wanting to expand her social lesbian circle is encouraged to attend.


Prior to the event, you will receive a link to your profile. In your profile, you will be asked to provide 2 short answers related to where you fall on the masculine/feminine spectrum and where your preferred date falls on the same spectrum. You will add the preferred age preference of your date, and you’re all set! The algorithm is designed to match your preferences as best as it can given who is in attendance and their indicated preferences.

After each 5 minute round, you will receive a smart phone message directing you to your next date. The more women that attend, the better! And while it’s not full matchmaking, the smart messaging technology allows a more tailored experience than random, public speed dating.

At the end of each date, you’ll add “feedback” about your date (“2nd date,” or “friend” or “business”). When two singles indicate the same level of interest, we email you both with contact information within 24 hours.
