Here's to 2019 and beyond!
Since the beginning of 2018, we started out as a grassroots effort with the intention to bridge the gap between individuals of the "DMV" (DC, Maryland, and Virginia) area. We recognized that the "South Asian" community of our area had a variety of social needs that were not being adequately met. Many of today's youth want to meet new people and experience valuable connections with others. Furthermore, we wanted to work to remove the stigma surrounding "dating" and distract people from their screens in order to show them a part of the human experience that they were missing out on. With that, "South Asian Speed Dating" was created, a new way to meet people, with a "desi twist".
One of the first events that we ever hosted was at "Dirty Martini", a restaurant/lounge located in DuPont circle. With a total of 12 participants, we were thrilled with the positive outcome and feedback that we received from our clients.
We look forward to hosting more fun and fabulous events to come. Stay tuned for more information regarding our 4 events to be held in February of 2019 by following us @southasianspeeddating!
