Ditch your smartphone for real connection at the next Saskatoon speed dating event.
Get out of your comfort zone and off of your phone to meet face-to-face with great new people who could be your perfect match. Saskatoon speed dating throws out the old rules of singles mixers for a more connective experience.
SASKATOON SPEED DATING
You’ll start the night with a short ice breaker game after a quick introduction and how-to from Do Sask. Speed dating begins after everyone has gotten to know one another.
Each date is four minutes in length with 30 seconds in between each one. When the buzzer rings, you have the option to choose whether you’re interested in your date as a friend, a match, or not. So if you meet someone that night who could make a great wing man or wing woman, it’s a great added bonus.
There is a planned 15-minute break half way through your dating sessions with opportunities to order bevvies throughout the event. Drinks and nibbles are available at an additional cost.
I only have two simple rules:
- Don’t talk about your profession.
- Don’t talk about where you live.
These rules are designed to get you talking about the things you enjoy most outside of work which makes for a much better conversation.
CONTACT DETAILS IN YOUR INBOX
At the end of the night, you’ll hand in your match card and be notified of your matches within the following 48 hours*.
*add firstname.lastname@example.org to your safe list to avoid losing match details in your junk box.
Schedule: Introduction, ice breaker, and min. 7 four minute dates in under 2 hours. View events calendar.

At the end of every event, I ask attendees to give feedback on their experience. Your opinion is an essential part of what helps the Do Sask community become better each and every time.

Speed Dating for Mature Adults in Saskatoon
Ages are clearly marked in event ticketing details. Unfortunately, Do Sask no longer offers speed dating services to participants ages 50 and above. This is due to a high number of last-minute male no-shows, resulting in an uneven gender ratio between men and women.
Gay Speed Dating in Saskatoon
Saskatoon Speed Dating is launching for straight folks. However Do Sask is proud to be a gay ally. If you’re single and looking for queer matching services, please send me an email including your age, sex and whether you’re interested in men, women, or both.
