Coming this Valentine’s Day, a speed dating event with a twist! Rather than going through the standard opening questions (Where do you work? Do you game? How many goldfish do you want?), we’ve decided to shake things up a little this year! In other words, you are to provide a short description of yourself in no more than 30 words upon registration. These will be compiled and published prior to the event, with only your initials identifying you. So be creative! At the event, there will be 15 guys and 15 girls. Every five minutes, you’ll get to meet someone different and since you already know the boring background stuff about your partner, we’ll also be providing questions to guarantee an interesting conversation. And because it’s Valentine’s Day, we’ve found questions that have been shown to lead to love! If you don’t believe us, Read more here.

Venue: The Refinery, 115 King George’s Avenue, Singapore 208561, Nearest MRT: Lavender MRT

Contact: Please contact dualcupids@gmail.com for any questions, or call/text 81122421 on the actual day for any urgent changes.
So if you’re 35 and under, and free on Valentine’s Day (that’s 14th Feb, if Hallmark hasn’t gotten to you), register quick! A confirmation email along with payment details will be sent shortly after. Remember, your spot is only confirmed after payment. We’re taking only 15 guys and 15 girls this time – so be quick! Important If you are unable to make it, after registering successfully, please inform us as soon as possible so that the spot can be offered to the next person on the waiting list.
