For Valentine’s Day and beyond: ‘Not your ordinary speed-dating experience’

Looking for love? Or, at least, like? Your Seattle Parks and Recreation Department‘s West Seattle Community Centers (WSB sponsor) have Recreation Speed-Dating Social events lined up the next two Thursday nights at High Point Community Center.

First, this Thursday, it’s the Valentine’s Day Adult Speed-Dating Social, followed on February 21st by the LGBTQ Adult Speed Dating Social. Both run 5:45-7:45 pm, $20 per person, registration limited to 20 people. Here’s how they work:

Recreation Adult Speed Dating Social is for adults 28-42 to engage in a fun evening of casual interactions and exciting recreation games like nerf dodge ball, tug of war, steal the bacon, and three-legged races.

This is not your ordinary speed-dating experience; dating switches will be initiated by music instead of a bell. There will be 6-minute mini dates and 5-minute recreation game intervals.

Light refreshments will be provided. Waiver and ID will be required for participation. Dress comfortable and casual.

Call 206-684-7422 to sign up.


  1. Great idea! Wish it was for the 57 year old generation!

  2. Maximum age 42? Why?

  3. Steal the Bacon? I want to attend…but I’m trying to not eat bacon. Plus my girlfriend is vegan. …well and the fact I have a girlfriend probably disqualifies me. Anyway… enjoy everyone!

  4. They could do a “geezer” edition for those between 42 and 60 and an “ultra geezer” version for those over 60. Then the three-legged race would be appropriate for those of us with canes.

    Note: I’m on the border between geezer and ultra geezer myself. My tongue was firmly planted in my cheek.

  5. Wow, I’m too old for this? That’s a shock to the system.
