From participants:

“I really liked this event. It ‘forced’ me to talk with women I wouldn’t normally gravitate towards. Unlike other mixers, you have to talk to others—it gets people out of their comfort zone.”

“Meeting different people was quite fun and I felt no pressure to make anything happen, but could see how it could if there was attraction. Was an overall very positive experience—helped me build my confidence in dating.”

“It’s nice to be able to actually meet someone face to face instead of online. This was the first time I attended one of these and I enjoyed the experience. I am definitely interested in attending more of these events!”

“I’m shocked in the best way that I had 16 dates.”

From our partners:

“JQ International has used Mixalot’s software to run several events to help our LGBTQ community find love and friendship. They have been a great success with our members and easy to run! We’re looking forward to continuing to run these events to help our community connect.”
Anna Goodman, Program Director at JQ International

“The software is easy to use and provides an over-the-top experience for participants, I have had fantastic turnouts so far and look forward to running more successful events.”
– Jody Potiker, So Many Women…So Little Time Meetup Group


How are people paired on dates?
Participants select the age range and qualities that they are most interested in, and the Queer Speed Dating computer program matches them with the people at the event that are the best fits. We offer built-in preference options including age range, sexual interests, and gender identity, and can also add custom questions.

Does this require an app download?
No. Participants receive text messages with links to screens.

Can I brand the event to my brand?
Yes! Your logo appears on all screens that participants receive so the event is fully branded to your organization.

Is it complicated to run a speed dating?
We keep it simple: we mail you a kit of event supplies and offer your host a free one-hour training in how to run the event using our web-based platform. Or if you’d prefer us to staff the event for you and handle all the details, all you’ll need to do is invite people.

Do people find serious partners through this?
Yes – we’ve even had couples get married after meeting through Queer Speed Dating events!

What is the cost?
We charge per-event or per-head to use the software, depending on the size of your event. Please contact us for details.

Do you run non-dating events?
Yes, we also run business networking and other custom speed dating events.
