We know of at least 65 engagements, 58 marriages and several other couples who are very happy together. If you have a story to share, please email us at Info@Weekenddating.com
This happy couple met at one of our events almost four years ago and got married. Congrats to Heather and Joe! Best of luck.
Lance and Theresa met at our Northern Lights, Stamford Mariott event and got
engaged in February 2017. Watch this awesome video!
Here is why I do one way matches. Christian and Leshelle married in 2007 (I
think, lol) All of these years later, they are still happily married and have
two beautiful children. Shushh, but originally Christian did not pick Lehselle.

Just wanted to let you know that exactly a year after I
met John (he was actually waitlisted) at your event we got engaged. We
will be married next June. I've been telling anyone who asked that they should
definitely try weekend dating and that I thought the people at your event were
nicer, more down to earth people than the people you meet at speed dating
events in the city.
All the best,
Hello Jay and Company!!!
I know you keep track of your "success stories" (engagements
and weddings, happy couples, etc). I thought I would tell you that you can
add another engagement to your list!
Rob and I met almost 3 years ago at one of your Suffolk speed dating
events. I had been to approximately 5 other events prior spread out over a
couple years and always had more luck with speed dating than I had online.
Rob had never been to one (he got lucky
his first time out lol). Anyway, a married couple who had also met speed
dating was running the event that night. It was a lot of fun as always.
Rob said he drove by the place several times as his friend who was
supposed to go that night too cancelled and he was thinking of backing
out. I am so glad he didn't!!! We hit it off right away (although I did
not hear from him afterward even though we matched and I broke my rule and
contacted him first after about a month lol). As soon as we got in touch
we went out that weekend and have been together ever since. Last month he
proposed on the bow bridge in Central Park and we are planning a June
wedding at one of the wineries out east where he lives (and where I will
be living next year too). We couldn't be happier or more in love and we
have you to thank for it. Tell others they can learn from us-you might get
lucky your first time out like Rob but it could also take a few tries like
for me smile emoticon
WELL WORTH IT
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BRINGING US TOGETHER
My now boyfriend and I attended an event for the first time in June 2015.We both had our eyes on each other before he got to my table and once he
did we clicked instantly.Since then
it's been nothing but happiness. We both are amazed by how well suited for each
other we are and how it seems we've known each other for far longer.We always talk about how crazy it is that if it wasn't for weekend dating
we would never have met and we both had circumstances that almost prevented us
from being there.I didn't know I
could love someone as much as I love him and I am so thankful that your event
brought us together.We tell our
friends that they have to do it too because it really works.Because of you I met the man I intend to spend my life with.Thank you so much!
"Well, a little
update for you on the testimonial! On our two year anniversary tonight,
just a little over two years and one week after we met through weekend
dating...Doug proposed and I said yes! We are officially engaged!!! I met
my future husband thanks to you. I can never thank you enough for bringing
I attended my first speed dating night in May 29th in
Melville. Before the event started, I spotted this person who I was attracted
to, but did not know if he was there for the event or not. It turns out he was
there for speed dating too. He was the second person I spoke to and we just
hit it off. We stayed after it was over and chatted for a while. We then left
together and went to a place to hear music. He asked me out the next night and
we have been going out ever since. We have so much in common. We are both
widowed and have many of the same interests. I have had a fantastic summer
doing many special things with him. We have gone away together twice and
enjoyed every minute. We do not analyze anything but just enjoy the time we
have together. Things look very positive for us as our relationship moves
forward. I will say that we are both very happy. Thank you so much.
leave, at least stay and have something to eat. Never could I have imagined that these special 10 words was going to
change two people's lives forever. One of my favorite motivational
speeches is by Al Pacino in the movie Any Given Sunday.
"You find out life's this game of inches, so is football. Because in
either game - life or football - the margin for error is so small. I mean, one
half a step too late or too early and you don't quite make it. One half second
too slow, too fast and you don't quite catch it. The inches we need are
everywhere around us."
Lets rewind exactly one year ago from this past Sunday to August 10,
2013. I was hosting a singles BBQ in Bethpage. This was
Jackie's first ever event. The BBQ's are a lot of fun and are very
informal. At this particular event the ages was skewing a little
"older." Jackie hung out for a bit and then let me know
that she was going to leave. I could tell that she was keeping a brave
face, but the guys were a little bit too old for her. Then I said those
magical 10 words. "Don't leave, at least stay and have something to
eat." I let her know the food was coming out shortly and she agreed
to stay for a bit.
I called Omar (who was closer to Jackie's age and had expressed some
possible interest in attending the BBQ) and told him that we had some cute
younger women in attendance and he should come down and register. Omar
said that he was with Chris and that they were going to the city but would try
to stop by on the way. Thankfully they did because as the story
goes...The rest was history.
Lets fast forward to this past Sunday, August 10th, 2014. It was an
honor to have been invited back to the place where it all began.
Chris proposed to Jackie and she accepted!!
It really made me think about that Al Pacino speech. What if Jackie
had left early and not stayed for the food? What if Omar and Chris
decided to skip the BBQ and go straight to the city? "One half a
step too late or too early and you don't quite make it. One half second too
slow, too fast and you don't quite catch it. The inches we need are everywhere
I will keep this story in mind the next time I want to leave someplace
early or decide that I really do not want to do something.. You just never
know how not missing that experience could have a tremendous impact on your
Congrats to the engaged couple!
Just wanted to let you know I got engaged on New Year's Eve. I met my
fianc Rich at a speeddating event that you held on July 20, 2012 at the
New Hyde Park Inn. I can't thank you enough for the effort you
put into helping people find one another. It's not easy to meet
people when you have a busy life and I love the idea behind
speeddating because it gets the angst of a blind date done away with right
away. We are so in love and looking forward to spending the rest of our
lives together. Thanks so much for introducing me to my future husband.
God Bless You,
As the Daughtry song says, "you never know when you're gonna meet someone and your whole wide world in a moment comes undone." That moment came for me on October 29, 2010 when I met a wonderful man at your event at 34 New Street in Huntington.
We went on our first date about a week later and have been inseparable ever since. It truly was "the start of something good."
Thank you for providing the avenue for us to meet and for the laughter we share each day.
Theresa & George
Congrats to Brian and Suzanne!! They met December
2011 at our 841 East Lounge Speed Dating event in Huntington!
"It was an interesting night; the chemistry between
us was undeniable, magical, a bolt of lightning. The rest is as they say
history. We are engaged now and are in the process of moving in
together. We couldnt be happier.
Thanks for getting us together.
Jay, just wanted to thank you! Bill and I just got engaged! We
met at one of your events at 34 New Street in Huntington. Wedding date set
for May this year! Thanks a million! You changed our lives!!
Update: We are now married!!!
Things usually come in threes.. This is the second great bit of news in
just a few days.. So who is next??
A JEWISH SALSA DANCER! That's what Simone told me that she wanted. I said.. "YOU ARE CRAZY, NOT
GOING TO HAPPEN." Well as the saying in lotto goes... You never know..
Simone met Bill at our 34
New Street event in Huntington and have been happily married for years!
They JUST HAD THEIR FIRST LITTLE GIRL!! CONGRATS TO THE AWESOME COUPLE!
In case you would like to add to your success stories, Dennis
Acar and I got married in 2012 and we just had twins in 2013 ( a boy - Shane
and a girl - Sofia). Thanks to your weekend dating service our dreams
have now come true!!! We thank you immenselyJJJ
I hope all is well by you!!
On November 2, 2009, I had the pleasure of reuniting with nine couples whose
lives have changed forever. I took them to dinner at Allettos
in Lindenhurst. If I had any doubt about the true purpose of
WeekendDating.com, those doubts were put to rest. The event went so
great, that a couples reunion will be planned once or twice a year.
Married June 2011
Jay, hello to you! I attended an event at Katies (Smithtown) in
November of 2006 where I met my (now) fiance. I wrote you in 2007 to let
you know that we were moving in together, now I would like to let you know
that we are getting married. We were engaged last October at Niagara
Falls! We will be married this coming October. I thought you would
want to know about another successful match! Thanks for all of the good
you do to help couples find each other.
Diane and Tom
Peter and I are still dating since your event March 2008.
We are now living together. We are wishing you happy Holidays and a very happy
On Saturday, December 5th 2009, Tommy proposed at the Rockefeller Center
Christmas Tree. It was the happiest night of my life. And Jay,
Tommy and I would never have met if it wasn't for your speed dating event on
June 20, 2008 at Callahan's in East Meadow. Due to the relaxed and fun
atmosphere you create at your events, we were able to get to know each other
without the awkwardness and anxiety usually associated with singles events.
Jay, Tommy has made all of my dreams come true. He is the best thing
to ever happen to me. He is my knight in shining armor, the hero in
the story of my life, the answer to all of my prayers. I don't think I
even knew happiness like this was even possible. I know you are a
businessman, but I like to think of you as a modern day Cupid. Thank
you for providing the means for our incredible future. See you at
the wedding :-)
All the best,
UPDATE July 2017- Tom and Tracy have been married for many many
years. They just went to Bermuda and renewed their vows!
I just wanted to tell you that I attended one of your speed dating events about 4 years ago. I matched up with a really nice girl, and this past April we got married. Things are great, we have a house in Wantagh and are very happy.
I just wanted to say, thanks for doing the events, your doing great things. Your very appreciated.
Just wanted to inform you that Anthony and I had met at your party at Cats Meow last year and we tied our knots 8/06. I was just cautious about our names being displayed that was the reason that I delayed this information.
It's a grand service that you have been doing to the community at a very reasonable price.
God bless you.
I just wanted to let you know that I met Jerry at one of your speed-dating events in March of 2005. We were engaged in February of 2006 and were just ma rried in July.
Just want to say that I met someone special at your October 18 event at Sly Fox. (It was my 2nd event - I was supposed to be out of town, but
you had one extra spot for women. You said, "Maybe it is meant to
be"...and it's been pretty great these past nearly six months. Chris was totally there for me during the holidays, when my dad passed away in January, etc. Just wanted to let you know. I have been referring friends/acquaintances to weekenddating.com.
Don't know if you remember me, we met a few times at the Cat's meow. You bought my baby g/f a pizza, she was the young blond hanging out at the bar. Anyway dear.... I've been meaning to tell ya that at the single thingy, last year, around this time, end of June, I met Gary. We have been dating now a year and are very much in luv. Just wanna say ty for having these speed dating events. He and I get along so well. Anyways I'll keep in touch.
I attended your speed dating event in September 2005 at the Salty Dog in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. I met Adam at
the event and we've been together ever since. Thanks so much!
Thanks to WeekendDating.com , I no longer need these mailings... In July,2003, I met Mr. Right... at your program... Conrad and I are now engaged... just thought that you would like to know...
I would just like to say thank-you for what you do and to let you know that it looks like your speed dating has resulted in yet another engagement. I met Chris at Brunos May 2004. We dated a few weeks before we became exclusive. However after some outside influence we broke up after a year. Seven months later we got back together and today I am happy to tell you that we are engaged. We are so very happy and thought you would like to know. Thanks so much,
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you (I truly would never be able to thank you enough) for creating that night that brought me such a wonderful person.
Sorry this is so long but I thought you would appreciate the feedback and if anyone ever gets discouraged (and God knows I had my moments) you can tell them about my story. Hopefully, this is only Chapter one of a
very long book.

HI Jay. FYI. Dan and I who met at one of your events one year and ten months ago and a half are now getting married!
Thank you very much for telling me about that
singles event. I been dating this wonderful guy for 2 months already. My friend was interested in attending your events, but I wasn't sure if you had the slightly younger age group like the one I attended. She is 30
years old and wants to meet someone from like age 27-35. I told her I met someone at the cats meow and maybe you would have one of these events again. I hope you have a great weekend and thanks again.
Just want to drop you a note and holiday greetings. Lisa H and I met at one of your dating events in Brooklyn in April. It was the first for
both of us. I am happy to report that we have since been married and have relocated to Pennsylvania. We just closed on a house and we are moving in
tomorrow. We be happy to participate in a success story as we both feel so fortunate in meeting through your social.
Just wanted to let you know that I attended the event at Jillians on February 12th and met a great guy. We have been dating ever since and I just wanted to thank you. You no longer have to send me the emails about upcoming events because I know this is "the one". Thanks again.
i ended up meeting my boyfriend Brian at the June 2004 speed dating event at brennans.
i want to share the happy news that Brian and i have been together almost a year and half now and are planning on getting engaged around the holidays. we would NEVER have met if it wasn't for your speed dating business. we want to thank you for getting us together. ill keep you posted when we officially get engaged! you can then add us to your 'count' of engaged couples.
Jennifer and Brian
Just wanted to let you know that Joe and I got engaged last month. Both of us wanted to let you know we are thrilled that we met one another at Speed Dating and would highly recommend it to anyone!!!
Last fall I came to your Hauppauge speed dating and had a wonderful time and went on a few dates. It has been nearly 30 years since I have been single. From those dates I was able to build some dating experience and confidence in dating. I found this whole experience to be very positive. After dating several months and even more confident I was ready to try speed dating once again at your Farmingdale location just two months ago. I had even more fun and 1000% more confident and relaxed. I went on some more dates but was really interested in only two super ladies, it didn't take me long to realize my connection was with "Cookie" not her real name and we have been together ever since. Cookie and I really knew the very first night how special we were as a couple. What a great service you provide and professional way you run your service. Thanks so much.
I want you to know .. it may sound korny but thank you for having your speeddating.. if not for you, I would not have such a wonderful boyfriend and I am very greatful for that.
Monica and Dom married on February 15, 2009 and have two beautiful children!
When they met for the first time at our speed dating event.. .they DID NOT
each other. They met again at a subsequent event and the rest was
Hi. It's Barbara, the first speed dating ticket winner. Well, it's still early but I thought you would appreciate the feedback and the story. I went to the second night, largely to meet up with your friend Dave and because I won the ticket. I took the winning of the ticket as a sign. My mom died when I was little and she has been giving me signs all along. Well, turns out one of my matches and I really hit it off.
The first time I tried speed dating, I approached it with expectations of having fun ... I didn't expect anything to come out of it. Imagine my surprise when something actually did! Of the six matches I had that night, I met with three about one week after you introduced us. Bachelor #1 didn't appeal to me and Bachelor #3 made me feel as if were at the dentist. However, Bachelor #2 made quite an impression. John (#61) and I met at 2 PM on a Sunday afternoon for coffee. We immediately started talking and at about 5 PM I asked him if he wanted to get something to eat because I was starving. We sat in the restaurant until 9 PM. We would've stayed longer, but I had to get up early for work Monday morning. After a seven hour first date, we both had an idea that something good was going to happen! That was almost two months ago and we've been inseparable ever since. Thank you for bringing two people together who probably wouldn't have met otherwise.
Jay, even though it is still early I really started to believe I would never meet someone who sees life through my eyes and is on so many of the same wavelengths as I am. We both are a bit ga-ga over each other. I have always said "Timing is everything" and apparently we were 14 years in the making. I am over the moon! My friends say I am walking and talking differently and co-workers who don't know me very well are saying that I look great:)
