The September 27 event is filling up!

We now have more people registered for the September 27th event than we had attend our first event! 

This also means we're over 80% full for this round!

Register soon to ensure your spot, and if you have someone that you were planning to attend with, let them know so we can be sure to get them in too! 

The demographics are quite good this round, and we're already seeing more matches on average than we saw last time!  As we continue to fill up, we want to ensure the best experience for everyone, and to that end we're trying something new.  Further registrations for straight(ish) males to this event will require that they have a balancing companion that is a female of any persuasion or a gay male.  You can date separately from your companion or as a group, as you choose.  Other genders and orientations may register as before. 

Please note that this page is accurate, and the details here are not entirely accurate.  We're working on getting that changed.  

To reiterate:

  • We are still open to everyone over 21.  Straight(ish) males will need a balancing companion.
  • Other genders and orientations may register as before.
  • Companions may be female (born that way or not, any orientation) or gay males.
  • You can date separately or together.
  • If you make a registration error, email us.  But given our palantir, we probably already know.

3 Weeks Until Poly Speed Dating!

Saturday, September 27th is coming up quickly!

Even with the additional room, we're again over half full, and on track to sell out!

We're seeing a great mix of folks, with a lot of new faces and some familiar ones.  If this is your second time, be sure to use the same account.  The system remembers who you've been matched with previously, so all of your matches should be new. Also, if you have a friend, sweetie, or arch-nemesis coming to the event, let us know and we can make sure the system doesn't match you!  

Register soon, and be sure to pay in advance to secure your spot!  If you are waiting on a sliding scale arrangement, those will be coming along shortly.

Registration Is Open For Round Two Of Poly Speed Dating PDX!

Portland Poly Speed Dating is embiggening into the back room at Embers so that we can get more of you lovely people together. Head to the registration page to reserve your spot. 

Our first event in June sold out two weeks in advance, and we’re hoping to welcome some new folks who couldn’t get in before. If you’re coming back a second time, the matching system will track who you’ve already met and hook you up with new dates.

The details:

Saturday, September 27
5pm to around 8:30pm
The Embers Avenue, 110 NW Broadway  
Ages 21+
$5-$15 sliding scale advance registration - $25 at the door

We’re guessing this event will sell out even with the bigger room, so register early!

This is another 21+ event. Under-21s, we love you and we’re still on the lookout for a restaurant or other venue that can seat lots of people for an 18+ event. Please send suggestions!

A polyexcellent night

Thanks so much to everyone who came out for the glorious debut of Poly Speed Dating! It was awesome to see the smiles and sparkles around the room - and once we tallied up all the "yesses" and "no thank yous" on the dating sheets, almost 90% of you had at least one mutual match. And lo, the poly people went forth and emailed to ask one another out for coffee, and it was good.

We think there are more matches where those came from, and we've penciled in a date for the next event: September 27. Stay tuned for details... and as ever, sign up at right if you want updates by email.
