What am I looking for in a man? Haha good question! I think mostly someone who is okay with who he is and has a positive view on life. I signed up because I think men who "dare" to come here are no softies anyway!

Stefan and Lisa
35 & 39

We really didn't expect this to happen but we met at a speed dating last year and really hit it off. Now we are preparing our first trip to Thailand together! Thank you Dare to Date!

Lisa and Nancy
42 & 42

Life is too short not to try new things. Both Lisa and I didn't know what to expect at all, but we were really pleasantly surprised! Okay... things run smoother after a glass of wine, but it was a very nice evening anyway. Good atmosphere, nice people. We’ll have one more drink and then unfortunately we’ll have to go home!


What an evening! It was a very busy night as there were 16 men in total, a bit too many I must say. Nevertheless, it was really cool to get to know so many new people.

Claire, 42  ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

I had a very good experience speed dating with you guys. I've dated online in the past but I didn't always feel so comfortable about it. Lots of weird profiles and endless chatting. The dates I went on often didn't resemble their profile picture or were really awkward. I really think it's an enormous added value that you meet people in real life right away. You can feel their vibe and judge their caracter more profoundly. The hostess also gave everyone a good and relaxed feeling, it went much more relaxed than I initially expected. The men I met we're also different than I expected them to be at your typical speed dating night. You get to meet a lot of different people in one night, that also makes it quite interesting and fun. I'm sure I already have one match that I really like. I highly recommend this for every single who dares to date! 

Chris and Iris
41 & 45

We met here tonight, but we have to disappoint you because it's unfortunately not a match... Anyway, both of us have matched some other people that were present. It's a fun alternative to all that online stuff!


I wasn't expecting it, but I got to know some really cool women. I think it's a great alternative to online dating! I am looking for a woman with a gentle character and a good heart and I have certainly met women who fit this profile.

Anna and Douglas
34 & 36

We met here tonight! Whether we matched to each other, we'll see tomorrow in our matchmail! It was a pleasant evening for both of us! A very relaxed way to meet lots of new people.


Absolutely Great! I experienced a very nice evening, the host was very welcoming, nice and sociable people, I recommend this to everyone! I thought speed dating would not be my cup of tea but I had an amazing experience. I had totally not expected that I was going to match anyone but ... I have matched four men in total. Now we have to wait and see if the match is mutual... And if it's not, I'll definitely be back for another round!


I am not really the type to date "online" but I found this very pleasant. I met interesting ladies. I recommend this!


I am looking for a man who dares to step out of his comfort zone and try new things, life is too short! I certainly met a lot of men that tick some boxes tonight. If there is no match, I will definitely come back!

Marc, 43  ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

I had a very pleasant evening. I expected it to be a bit awkward, but in fact it was not at all. It was very relaxed and playful. I have certainly met a few ladies whom I would like to see again. Great experience, I would really recommend it to other singles. 

Mo, Paul and Alexander
31, 28 & 34

We actually got together because Mo has recently become single and has to start dating again (according to us)! The evening went well... Warm welcome by the hostess! She really made sure everyone was comfortable!


Leuke ervaring! Ik heb in totaal met 10 dames gesproken, er waren er twee bij die ik echt heel leuk vond dus die heb ik aangeduid. Eentje ervan was een match en we hebben nu nog steeds contact. Ik hoop dat we binnenkort eens gezellig kunnen gaan eten om elkaar verder te leren kennen.

Kevin and Evelyn
39 & 32

We've been together for 5 months now, we didn't expect this to be the result of a speed dating night! Evelyn only came because her friends had dragged her along, lucky me I guess!

Gerald and Steven
38 & 40

We are really tired of online dating, you lose so much time and energy with chatting back and forth. We wanted to try something different and that's how we ended up here. What do we think? It has its pros and cons, it's a bit more "awkward" at first than online dating but at least you know immediately who you're dealing with! We both talked to some really nice ladies anyway so that's good


I'm the shy type and I really have to get out of my comfort zone a little more. I had a pleasant evening and really liked some of the men I met, one in particular!

Brad and Jean
23 & 25

I was skeptical but it was a really nice evening! We had a nice chat with everyone! The people who participated were much more open and social than I expected, really cool! Jean already has two matches, so that's exciting!


A great welcoming by the host and a nice atmosphere. I really noticed that everyone was at ease and open to getting to know new people. It was really a much nicer atmosphere than at the average "single party" or after work!

Johanna & Michael  ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

We got to know each other during a Dare to Date speed date. We had both been to speed dating events of your organisation a couple of times in the past. Always fun nights out but for both of us there was no one with whom we had a "romantic spark". You cannot force these kind of things right? Funny fact, the night we met, both of us only matched the other one and no one else. We immediately felt there was a spark! We met up again the weeekend after the speed dating event for dinner and had an amazing night. We kept seeing each other and we moved in together after three months. How crazy is that?! Anyway, thanks a lot, you guys really changed our lives for the better! 

Sarah and Lorelai
24 & 26

We had a great evening! We hesitated for a long time to try this and it's really worth it. Sarah will for sure have a match, I'm not so sure on the other hand!

Nathalie and Gerald
54 & 61

After my first conversation with Gerald during the speed dating, I was immediately interested. I didn't expect something so beautiful to come out of a regular speed dating night but look at us now, we've been together for seven months!


I had such an amazing night, I thought (if I’m being honest) this was going to be a super awkward evening but that wasn’t the case at all! Except for the guy who straight up asked for my number instead of moving to the next table. But it was such a cozy night with great people! Amazing concept! Much nicer to meet people this way!

Claudia, 38  ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

It was a very nice evening. I expected only hopeless types were going to attend tonight but that wasn't the case at all (for the biggest part). Really nice (and handsome) men. Nice way of dating too, less artificial than online. I had an amazing time!

Martha and Raquel
32 & 34

It was completely different than expected! Our expectations were very low anyway but were really exceeded. There were cool people, a cool location and.... I'm sure Martha has two matches! Much nicer than meeting people online! We'll stick around for the after drink!


The most important feature for me in a man (so typical I know but...) are nice eyes! Give me a pair of beautiful eyes and I will melt immediately! Tonight there was one among them that completely enchanted me, let's hope it's mutual.

Ines and Katherine
23 en 24

I surprised Ines with a speed date. She didn't dare to do this at all, but in the end she has three matches. This is much better than all those online dating apps, at least you get to see who you're talking too, thank you!

Max & Stella

⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

We met a few months ago at one of the events and were both just in time because we both always work late. We really hit it of and been dating for 4 months now. Great concept to meet new people!

Hannah and Bart
35 & 39

Hannah: I only came here to meet new people because I just moved out here. At first I was a bit stressed, but looking back it was a really good evening. You get to know new cool people (like Bart in the picture) in a fun and relaxed way.


I found it a little bit weird at first, but I have to say the evening actually went very well and after the third date I was completely into it. I'm still in touch with a man I met here, so I hope I will get back to you guys soon with a succes story!


Fantastic! This is so much better and more fun than online dating! You'll get to know other singles in a relaxed and casual way. I was a bit stress at first but the hostess made a few jokes and felt at ease right away.


I was hesitant at first but I met several very nice men. I have matched 4 of them, is that too much? Haha I hope not. Anyway lets see tomorrow If there is a match. If not I will come back for sure, you have to kiss a lot of frogs before you find your prince!

Linda, Sandra and Lena
42, 45 & 48

Sandra: I don't really like online dating, but on the other hand, I find that "events for singles" are often a bit forced and pretty lame. I have to say that I am really surprised at how smooth the evening went and how much fun I had.

Laura, 32  ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

I think it's really great that this concept exists. I'm not a hopeless case, but I find it difficult to just meet someone the old fashioned way. Many of my friends and girlfriends already have a relationship and are married. So when we meet it is often with the same group of friends (and their partners). Also online is really not my thing, way too much hassle and weird profiles. Here you have a great evening and you meet a lot of different men. I think it's really good that you see each other face to face right away. Really great! I recommend this!


I had seen this in the newspaper a long time ago and I was immediately interested but did not know if it would be my cup of tea. I came with low expectations and I must say I'm pleasantly surprised with the concept! I matched three of the men I met.


It went really well, I met interesting men and women as well (during the after drink). I really like this formula!

Eline and Sarah
25 & 27

Eline: I really think meeting each other immediately face to face is an added value. Sarah: I had a great time tonight, thank you! I think I will match two of the guys I met tonight.

Landon and Elise
38 & 43

We got to know each other through the speed date. It turned out to be a really good match between the both of us, thank you Dare to Date!

Steve, 48  ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ 

After my divorce it was not that easy to get to know new (single) people. It's very nice that concepts like these exist. You know that everyone is single and open to get to know new people, that takes a lot of the pressure off and creates a relaxed athomosphere. I met 12 ladies tonight and with one of them I really felt a spark, I will match her for sure. Funny, but I also met some cool guys here during the after drink, if the spark wasn't mutual with the lady (I will not name yet 😉) I will come back for sure. Some of the men a met tonight would make aseome wingmen so I'm okay anyway! No really, it was awesome and a lot less awkward and more relaxed than any other event for singles I went to the last months. You guys are doing a great job, keep up the good work! 

Christophe and William
38 & 42

It was the first time for us. We are both looking for someone with personality and character! We've met some really cool women here. If we don't have a match, we'll definitely come back.


I had a very surprising evening, some dates went very smooth, other ones a little less so. Overall I certainly met some interesting men. I really prefer this over online dating, as a lot of ladies might know, men can be weird online.


I'm a big fan of all these reality TV programmes and I really wanted to experience something like this (but without everyone watching). I thought it was a really cool experience and exciting from start to finish. I really recommend this for all the singles out there!


My friend who was supposed to be come, cancelled at the last minute… I wasn’t sure if I should come by myself... But right after I walked in, I started talking to one of the guys and I knew I made the right decision by coming here! In retrospect, honesty: I really didn’t expect to meet this many interesting people!


Super fun evening, very sociable! I didn't expect it to be so relaxed, I met nice people, thanks!


The evening went very smoothly. The atmosphere was good and I'm sure there were some nice matches formed tonight, whether that's the case for me I'll see. I'll rather wait and see than jinx it now!

Lena and Annabel, 33 and 35   ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

What are we looking for in a man? Very different question... 😉 We are both very nice ladies (even if we say so ourselves 😂) and are mainly looking for someone who wants to enjoy life, have fun but also has his heart in the right place. Tonight, I think we've met some men who have these criteria. If it's mutual, we'll see tomorrow when we get our matches by mail!
