Want to get off your dating apps and meet someone in real life, but where you don’t have to find out that every cute person at the party is unavailable? Do you think that IRL speed dating is generally awkward and weird? So do we. That’s why we’re putting a Skip the Small Talk twist on dating.

Skip the Small Talks are usually **NOT** for dating, but so many of y’all asked us for a dating event that we decided to make an exception!

We'll be offering "big talk" conversation prompts to get you started, and we'll have lots of structure to make sure that you actually talk to people and that it's not awkward. Not feeling like answering a particular question? No worries, we'll have plenty to choose from, like, "When are you the happiest?" and, "If you were going to become close friends with me, what would I need to know about you?" We'll give you ground rules to make sure you feel comfortable and safe sharing as much of yourself as possible while still feeling in complete control of how much you share.

There will be alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks for sale!

Check-in for this event will begin around 6:45 pm. Please do your best to arrive before 7 pm so we can begin as close to on time as possible. Please note that there is an arrival cutoff, meaning that if you do not arrive before 7:20 pm, unfortunately you will not be able to participate and we will not be able to offer refunds.

A lot of y’all have asked us to host another one of these, so we’re hosting another polyamorous speed-dating event for all genders who are interested in dating all genders, for folks 21+!! And we’re SO excited to be at Trident Books! :D

You would probably have a good time at this event if all of the following are true of you:

- You are aged 21 or older and would be happy to go on dates with folks any age 21+ (Hoping to date in a narrower age range? Check out our other events as they become available— we are always adding more).

- You are polyamorous (monogamous events are also often available— feel free to check www.skipthesmalltalk.com/calendar!)

- You would enjoy dating someone of any gender (we have other events for folks who only want to date people of a particular gender)

If any of the above statements are NOT true of you, you might want to see if our other events are a better fit. We do our best to accommodate as many different demographics as possible given limited capacity for our speed-dating events, and we are always working to include more! Any suggestions for how we can be more inclusive? Please feel free to reach out to us at [email protected].

This event is trans-inclusive. We do not tolerate transphobia at this or any of our events.

We can only accommodate a limited number of guests at this event, so please plan to grab a ticket as soon as you think you'd like to join us. Please see our event page at https://www.skipthesmalltalk.com/calendar/poly-bi-and-pan-speed-dating-november-1-2022 for tickets, accessibility info, and COVID-19 policy.

Hope to see you there!
