Why does Veg Speed Date work so well?
These aren’t your typical singles events. We are committed to vegans and vegetarians. Our team is made up of longtime, active members of the veg community, and we spend all our energy figuring out how to find matches for veg singles only. Everyone you meet at our events will be vegan or vegetarian. We only partner with veg-friendly businesses and venues. And we definitely won’t suggest you go hunting for your second date (yes, seriously, another site recommends that).
We work hard to make sure there’s an equal number of men and women – or very close to it, at our male & female speed dating events. For our all-inclusive and LGBTQ events, we work to ensure we have the right number of people. We put in tons of time and effort to make sure your chances for a real connection are optimised. If you’ve been feeling frustrated that it’s hard to meet a vegan or vegetarian to date, Veg Speed Date is here to help!
We’ve refined our unique Veg Speed Date concept over 7 years – thinking through every detail to make sure people have a great time, don’t need to worry about feeling rejected, and have the best chance of making that special connection. Our events have resulted in life-changing matches for San Francisco Bay Area vegans and vegetarians since 2011 — just take a look at the success stories and check out how Veg Speed Date has given rise to long-term relationships, marriages, and families. Now, since Valentine’s 2017, we’re creating these kinds of success stories all over the United States and Canada!
The event was fantastic! It ran smoothly, there were plenty of interesting people to chat with, and I’m happy with the matches I got. I’m looking forward to the future events.
Casual, friendly atmosphere. Not competitive or rushed. I would definitely attend another event.
I loved it. It was way less awkward than I thought it would be.
Answers to some Common Questions
According to the New York Times, “Customers of online dating services typically end up going out with fewer than 1 percent of the people whose profiles they study online. But something very different happens at a speed-dating event. The average participant makes a match with at least 1 in 10 of the people they meet; some studies have found the average is 2 or 3 out of 10.”
Our numbers back this up. 3 out of 4 Veg Speed Daters find a love connection the very first time they try one of our events. At our Valentine’s Week 2017 launch events, alone, 241 matches were made between veg singles all over North America! So, while we can’t speak for online dating, our numbers show that if you invest just 2 hours in attending one of our events, you have a 3 in 4 likelihood of connecting with a vegan or vegetarian love interest.
While some polls have historically suggested there were more female vegetarians, more recent polls show the gender split is pretty much even as of 2016. There is even some evidence that more men are vegan than women! But overall, the Vegetarian Resource Group — the organization that has done this research most consistently — concludes it is a “misconception that more women than men are vegetarian.”
So don’t worry about there being more women than men at our events. The statistics are in your favour, and, Karine has been producing these events for years and has gotten really skilled at balancing the ratio. In fact this is one of the reasons her events are so successful and continue to please customers.
Exceptional!!! This event is the most gracious, easy and comfortable way to meet quality men that I can think of. I never knew these men existed before this event. I love that every thing was so precisely organized. Thank you again for offering the best way to meet vegan & vegetarian men; nothing else compares!!!!
As a vegan male, it has been increasingly important for me to find a like minded gal, so it was great having a roomful of single eligible vegan girls to chat with! I’ve attended non-veg speed dating events and found Karine Brighten’s event to be much better organized with an even number of girls and guys! I look forward to attending other events in the future!
Veg Speed Date is simply the best and the fastest way to meet someone if you are vegan/vegetarian and single. But don’t just take our word for it…
