Welcome to the event!

Here’s what you need to do now:



You only meet people you found yourself and already know you want to meet. We make it normal to have several short “first dates” in a row instead of over several weeks.  You choose the times and places…you’ll visit at a coffee shop or on a walk, just the two of you, just like any other first date.
Because online/app dating is time consuming…and often disappointing. By helping make mini-dates socially acceptable, we’re helping you discover who you actually want to have a real first date with. And it’s free!

Easier and safer meeting means less time spent in endless texting and scheduling, and less disappointment if your date isn’t who you expected them to be. Skip the awkwardness of a long date with someone you’re not into and move on to a first date with someone you really like!

Tell them there’s a DateNova event happening where people put together their own speed date and ask if they’d like to be one of your dates. You can tell them they can make their own speed date at the event too and point them to this website for details.

What it’s Like

No, you’re having a private mini-date with one person at a time to see if there’s any chemistry/connection. We recommend 15-30 minutes per date with at least 15 minutes between dates.
Online/app daters are looking for the right match and everyone knows this means having multiple first dates. If there’s chemistry on your mini-date, you both know you’ll see each other again.
