A Completely Unique NYC Singles Event - Like A Dating App In Real Life!

About this Event

Come on out to this real life event that uses modern technology in real time to help you meet that special someone! It's revolutionary concept that's changing the way people date in NYC.

The utilizes something called "Metyah". The Metyah web-based profile and messaging platform lets you create a dating app-style profile (name, pic, age, location) so you can go home after the event, log in, and start messaging the people you just met to let them know you're interested.

NOTE: You can list a variation of your first name on your profile or even use an alias, as long as you use the same name on your name tag. Profiles will not be viewable until after the event has ended.

You don't need to download an app. This can all be done using a tablet, smartphone, desktop or laptop.


No social media account or app that drains your battery required.

You don't have to worry about sharing an easily traceable email address that contains your last name, full name or place of work.

Messaging capabilities end 48hrs after the event. That means you're less likely to receive awkward follow-up messages.

If you attend another Metyah speeddating event or Networking mixer, you can reactivate your profile so you don't have to make another one.

About 70% of attendees come alone... Our friendly host will make introductions!

* 1-2 days before the event, you'll receive an email and text from us. In the message will be a secret code and a link to use to create a Metyah profile. You will receive a second email and text with the code and link the day of the event, just in case. You must create a profile before the event to participate.

* Arrive at the venue to check-in. A group rep will be on site to greet you and check you in. You'll be given a sheet to write down the names of people you meet.

* Mix and mingle!


Log on to the Metyah web-based app and start messaging! You will have 48 hours to contact the people you met.

NOTE: No response is a response. Please do not send follow-up messages unless someone has replied to your initial email. Reports of misuse of the system (spam/abuse/inappropriate language) will result in banning from all future events as well as any other action required to ensure the behavior doesn't continue.

If someone responds, you'll receive a notification email sent to the account you used to register.

Log in to Metyah, strike up a conversation, give them the contact info of your choice, and meet up!

Since all messaging occurs on the Metyah site, no personal or identifiable contact info will be visible or shared until YOU decide when to share the information, just like a regular dating app.

Messaging capabilities and profiles will not be available until an hour after the event has ended. That way there's no awkward on-site messaging.


Only the profiles of people who checked-in at the event will be eligible for messaging.

Profiles are not viewable until after the event.
