  • Portland, OR -

The new and better way to speed date. Follow personalized notification’s sent to your phone guiding you through a mix of first dates.


Enjoy meeting and connecting with new singles face-to-face.

This event is for single men seeking men. Ages 25-45.

At Luvvly Dating, we do speed-dating a little differently.

Our events are designed to feel casual, low-pressure, and make connecting IRL as fun and easy as possible. Leaving behind dress codes, awkward silences and distracting over-the-top event clichés.

There's no host, reserved seating, or obvious signs of an 'event'.

Instead, show up to one of our thoughtfully picked local venues, grab a drink, and follow personalized notifications sent to your phone guiding you through a mix of fun first dates!

🔎 Find your date.

We'll send you each date's name and description.

Fun part: You get to get to find each other!

Remember the pre-dating app days where if you wanted to ask someone out, you had to actually approach and talk to them? Yeah, it's kinda like that.. You've got this, Luvvly.

💬 Prompts.

Afraid the first date jitters might lead to a few awkward silences or dreadful small talk?

Don't worry; we've got your back.

We'll nudge conversations in the right direction with fun prompts throughout each date to help spark laughter, stories, and genuine connections.

💘 Matching.

We've taken the nerves out of making the first move.

After each date you'll be discreetly asked if you'd like to (M) Match.

If both you and your date indicate a match, we'll connect you after the event, and the rest is in your hands.

Up to 8 Rounds.

We'll set you up on a series of mini dates.

Each event is limited to 8 dates, this allows for you to meet a good mix of people while having enough time per date to move beyond small talk. Whether you match or not, our fun prompts will ensure you have a good time regardless of the outcome.

No dress code.

We want you to be yourself and wear whatever makes you feel the best. No expectations.

Event Schedule

Upon arrival at the venue, you’ll check in via text with your description, grab a drink and find a cozy spot to await your first date notification.

Part of the fun is that you won’t know who is there for the event until you start dating, making this feel less formal and every introduction more like a chance encounter.

Dating begins when everyone arrives, and they're usually on time. But if some are running late, they have until the pairing deadline, which is 10 minutes after the event's official start time, to check in. Everyone will receive their first date notification in sync, dating begins!

You’ll casually rotate through a mix of first dates throughout the event, enjoy fun icebreaker prompts, and match along the way with anyone you wish.

Swipe less, connect more.

Deleting an app shouldn't mean deleting your dating life.

Getting to the first date has become a tedious game of swiping and endless chats.

We're here to help.

We're an alternative way to meet singles *in-person* that's fun and cuts through the noise of swiping, profile pictures, and our busy lives.

Our mission is to create a surplus of opportunities in our community to meet, connect, and find love through *in-person* Luvvly Dating events.
