Ottawa Duckling Dating for non-Vanilla people. Traditional or not but sexy and fun
April 28 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm$30
It’s the fourth edition at doing the coolest of Duckling dating events. We’ve learned from each of them and know of many relationships and dates happened out of the last gathering. We are adding an online component so we are doing the best of both online and in persona connections.
Everyone needs to bond to that one (or more) special person(s) . The Duckling dating games event is a gathering for Ducklings looking to have fun and connect or market themselves in a way that shows each person in the best possible light. In the almost four years the Ducklings have been running we have had over 50 love matches which makes us kick-ass at putting people together. It just turns out that if you put like-minded adults together then attraction happens.
We have a number of super cool singles (or the it’s complicated crowd) who have been pushing us to try some more togetherness events (if you catch our drift). We tried a fun speed connecting event last year and had a blast with the dating game but realized the evening needed more focus. We want this event to be about our cool Ducklings meeting each other. It’s for all Ducks who are looking to make intimate and personal connections with other Ducklings but with no pressure and a sense of humour. This is the group between “Meet my parents on the second date” and “I’m bed-notching and only looking to hook up”. It can be about meeting friends, lifetime partners, or potential “let’s get horizontal” friends.
Think of it as a chance to be introduced (not in front of everyone so don’t be scared), and showcase your best features without being judged on looks. We plan to anonymous answers to fun questions on the wall so people can learn your interesting quirks. We are going to talk about how to approach and talk to a person of interest. As well as how get to know people beyond the same old conversations. This is not about small talk. Nor is it entirely about what you look like. Learn some skills you can use anywhere. And meet Ducklings you can be friends with or maybe something more.
We will run the old funny dating game show as an ice breaker. Expect to laugh and relax.
Last time we tried a dating event, almost everybody chose the “looking for something but don’t know what” wristband. This time you will have to be way more specific. We recommend a lot of thought about what you want. If you register in advance we will send you out a handout so you can give some thought to the questions. If you are coming as a couple we suggest significant conversation before attending so that you are on the same page as your partner. It really helps to understand where each other is at BEFORE the event happens.
It’s an open event so bring a friend if that makes you feel more comfortable. We pride ourselves on running events that make you feel safe. And we will have fondue so you can share a strawberry with someone of interest.
We think Ducklings are the coolest, kindest, most interesting people we have ever met. And we want them to know each other and feel the love.
ps. we don’t discriminate about relationship models or orientation. Couples, singles, triads all welcome. We are not the bed police. $30 to attend. This is a 2 duck event
pps. You might want to answer these questions in advance. Or at least give it some thought.
Here are the questions for this time:
-What’s on your bucket list?
-What gets you out of bed in the morning (besides work)?
-What’s the best advice you’ve ever gotten?
-What is quirky about you?
-What’s your best quality?
It’s going to be great!
