Speed Dating Events
Speed dating events are aimed at single people. Meet people one on one, tick anyone you like, and if they reciprocate - have your details exchanged the next day
About Us

No longer a singles company, Ignite Social Brisbane is all about kick starting your social life; with events like trivia nights, pub crawls, boat parties and more! We have some events aimed at people making friends, some focused on dating, and some are simply a fun night out, where you’re sure to meet people along the way. If you’ve just moved to Brisbane our events are perfect, as you can explore some of Brisbane’s finer venues whilst at the same time making friends, and maybe even meeting a special someone.

Having run events for a number of years, this is the feedback we’ve received: “the best way to ‘meet someone’ is enjoying yourself in a social space, and seeing what develops naturally.” A number of our events will have this angle to them, with plenty of ways to get over that initial hurdle of meeting the other people in attendance, without being forcibly paired up with them.

‘But how will I know who’s single?!’ Well, if you are looking to date, speed dating is the event which solves all the ‘problems’ encountered at other events.

  1. You’ll meet everyone in attendance
  2. Simply tick the people you’re interested in dating
  3. If they’re interested too, you’ll receive each other’s details via email the next day

However before dating apps, internet dating and the like people were meeting and dating without the ‘single label’ – it certainly can be done! If you’d like some guidance with ‘setting up your friend’ one night, consult one of our hosts who are there to help and ensure the night passes smoothly!

Why Choose Ignite Dating

Ignite Speed Dating Brisbane is ideal for you active professionals with busy schedules. You may be time-poor, but you know what you want, and are serious about dating. Sure, there are free apps out there, where you may encounter all manner of things (or you may find you won’t get far without paying). With Ignite Speed Dating Brisbane you are guaranteed to meet Brisbane people looking for the same thing as you, committed to coming to an event. (Edit: we also run Gold Coast events now). Having met in person once, filter free, you’ll find organising that second catch up considerably easier than via an app.

Secondly, Ignite Speed Dating Brisbane is fun! Many of our events include ‘ice-breaking activities’ which help people feel relaxed and provide talking points throughout the night, for exmaple wine, whisky or gin tastings. Would you choose chatting to someone face to face over a drink in a stylish venue, or incessantly pushing buttons on a phone? Recent research is indicating the modern influx of technology is leading to people feeling less connected and more lonely than ever.

‘Speed dating? Why not just meet people out in a bar without paying?’  Imagine a man going from one woman to another, to another, in a bar having 10 quick conversations – not a good look. Yes public bars can be a good place for people to meet in, if you can pull it off, but it is rare that any of a vast number of things doesn’t go wrong. For instance – Is the person you’re talking to single? Are they looking for a relationship or just some fun? Do they live in Brisbane? There’s a lot to consider – before you get into the conversation there’s also public rejection, aggressive/drunken behaviour and presumably you are out with friends that need to somehow fit in to the situation. It can be done, but doing Ignite Speed Dating Brisbane eliminates so many obstacles, greatly increasing your chance of meeting someone in one night. After all, you’re a busy professional who values their time, and safety.
