One of the lesser known deal-of-the-day sites, Homerun, is discounting a whole new genre today--speed dating. No boring restaurant coupon for a place you've never heard of--this deal is the first of its kind that I've seen.
The Homerun dating deal is for Date and Dash, which holds speed dating in 69 North American cities, including Minneapolis. According to DateandDash's web site, the next events are slated for March 11, March 25, April 8, and April 29.
I don't know how strict the parameters are but according to D&D's site, the March 11 event is open to professionals with a college degree ages 25 to 35. Are 24 and 36 year olds turned away at the door?
March 25 and April 29 have separate sessions for 22 to 32 year olds and 33 to 43 year olds.
Apparently, anyone over 43 years old is either supposed to be taken, not looking, or unable to keep up at a speed dating event.
Is the fact that speed dating is now being discounted a sign that it has jumped the shark?
Are singles who pay less for the event less likely to find a partner because they "invested" a smaller amount of money and are therefore not as emotionally attached to it?
