Stir Event Recap: CIRCA, a SpeedStir Event

There are Stir events happening every night all over the country, and we wanted to share with you a few of our favorites each week. This week’s recap features a SpeedStir event at CIRCA in San Francisco, CA. Check out the video and highlights below!



This isn’t your mother’s speed dating. SpeedStir events are interactive with creative icebreakers, in an approachable atmosphere. They’re held at bars, lounges or restaurants in popular neighborhoods across the country and the feedback on SpeedStir speaks for itself, “It’s just so much more effective to come to an event, talk to [multiple] people for a couple of minutes, and get a feel for the person. It’s not quite as fleeting as mingling,” said one West Coaster.

“Date smart, save time, have fun.” SpeedStir events gets you in front of at least 8-15 other singles for a 5 minute conversation to see if any sparks fly – essentially putting you on multiple dates all in the span of only 1.5-2 hours.

And that’s 2 hours well spent! The June SpeedStir “connection” rate was 60%. Based on member feedback, 3 in 5 people report they met someone they’d like to date at a SpeedStir event. One attendee reported, “I attend probably one a month, and I get about three or four dates a month out of it.”

We are actively hosting SpeedStir events in 20 cities. To see if and when we will be in your city, check out our Stir page here.

Find out the latest Stir events happening in your neighborhood by signing onto your Match.com account today. New events for all age groups and cities all over the country are added frequently, so head to the “Events” tab onsite to see where Match.com singles are mingling near you in 2014!
