We do not use traditional 'speed dating' offerings such as bells, whistles and name-tags.
View different profiles by clicking "next profile" or "previous profile" for each "match" Speed Date chooses for you, or browse members by age, location, and so on.
If you're a basic member, Speed Date lets other users initiate with you a five-minute instant messenger chat session, or "online speed date"; subscribers can extend that time.

Dedicated to verified college students and alumni (via education database). Alumni cannot initiate or respond to contact or post status updates.

If you're tired of online dating, exhausted by meeting someone only to discover they're nothing like their profile - we offer an alternative.
A sophisticated no frills approach to singles events.
So I'll close with a single word, open to interpretation: Wow.
