Welcome to Flare Events! Are you tired of online dating sites and the endless chats until you actually meet somebody? Well lets speed things up!

Flare Events offers Toronto, Ottawa, and Vancouver speed dating events with a truly unique take on the speed dating formula. Our events attract individuals that genuinely want to connect with the intention of dating. At Flare, it’s our mission to help Toronto, Ottawa, and Vancouver singles forge meaningful connections through unique and engaging speed dating events. We offer in-person speed dating at local Toronto, Ottawa, and Vancouver venues with great ambience, food and drinks. We also offer online speed dating events that are easy to navigate and optimized to offer the best experience possible. We strive to create a relaxed atmosphere and tailor our events with games and ice breakers early on and avoid any awkward lull’s.

About Flare Events

Flare Events was founded in Toronto with the idea of modernizing the speed dating formula, and improve on the dated concept for a better and more engaging experience. We also carefully select each venue. Our in-person speed dating events are hosted at venues that are exciting, not overpriced; and our team ensures they are easily accessible and have a welcoming, social atmosphere. Our virtual speed dating events are easy to use and our host makes sure everything works seamless. We want to provide events you’ll rave about at venues you’ll want to come back to. Currently, we operate events in Toronto, Ottawa, and Vancouver for the heterosexual community but are working hard on bringing events for the LGBTQ+ community in the near future! We soon hope to bring these events across Canada to help daters build meaningful connections that can last a lifetime.

In-person speed dating events

Our in person speed dating events run like no other. With engaging hosts, warm-up games, and maybe even a giveaway or two, we do our part to kick up the excitement in the first half. In the second half of the event, we pair the couples together and every 8 minutes cycle to the next match. After you’re done talking with our wonderful daters, hand in your scorecard and expect to hear some exciting news from our team in the days to come.

Online speed dating events

Our online speed dating events are the easiest to navigate and use on the web—we guarantee! Starting off with an ice breaker game to get everyone warmed up, we then breakout into private rooms and cycle through every 8 minutes. Paired with our interactive digital scorecard, these events run just as smoothly as they would in person!

“Flare Events has honestly changed my opinion of “online dating”. I tried this on a whim with a friend of mine after we were both fed up with Tinder, Bumble…and I actually don’t regret it. It was really easy to attend and participate in, the ice breaker games were a lot of fun. It is definitely something I would recommend to those who are single and looking!”
