HOW ARE MATCHES MADE?

Your matches will be made according to the preferences you indicate for age and gender expression. There will be structured lesbian speed dating as well as unstructured socializing time. This will allow you to meet other women who do not fall within your preferred dating criteria, but might make great friends!

AM I WELCOME IF I AM BISEXUAL, TRANS, NON-BINARY OR POLY?

Yes! Our goal is to attract a diverse group of women of all ages so we can provide a wide variety of people with whom you can meet and interact. We do not inquire about your sexual orientation or your gender identity beyond the requirement that you self-identify as a woman and you have romantic interests in women. We do ask that you are available, whether that means single or poly.

It is up to you to share what you wish to beyond the basic expectation that all women present: 1) self-identify as women; 2) are attracted romantically to women; and 3) identify as single or available.

HOW MANY SPEED DATES WILL I HAVE?

This depends on two variables. One, how open you are to a wide range of ages and gender expression; and two, how open other participants are to a wide range of ages and gender expression.

We will match you with the best ten dates we can. This means, if you indicate interest in a narrow age range, and only one specific gender expression, we will match you with your preferred women first. If there are not ten women who meet this criteria, we will pair you with the next best matches to reach a total of 10 dates.

WHAT IF MY EX OR SOMEONE I DO NOT WISH TO BE PAIRED WITH IS ALSO ATTENDING?

Don’t fret. We understand the desire to avoid awkward pairings. The registration form has a space to indicate who NOT to pair you with under any circumstance.

WHAT HAPPENS IF WE ARE INTERESTED IN SOMEONE?

Each woman will be provided a number. At the end of the event, you will submit your Adventures in Lesbian Speed Dating Date Card. This is where you will indicate if you are interested in further communication with any of the women you met. For each woman that you indicate interest in who has also expressed interest in you, we will provide you one another’s contact information within two days following the event.

WHAT IF I AM INTERESTED IN A FRIENDSHIP WITH HER, BUT NOT ROMANCE?

Your Lesbian Adventures date card gives you the option to indicate your interest in each date. Next to the # of your date, you will indicate one of three options:

  1. Friendship Only 
  2. Potential for More 
  3. No Interest in either 

If you indicate friendship, and she indicates romanceship, we will connect you and indicate your preferences so there is no confusion.

WHAT IF I’M SUPER DUPER SHY?

We’ve got your back. At each table, where the dates occur, we will provide helper cards to give you topics, statements, and questions to assist you while on your four minute dates. You’ve got this, and we’ve got you.

WHAT IF I SIGN UP AND CAN’T MAKE IT?

Your registration is non-refundable. If you wish to sell your seat to another single lesbian, you are welcome to do so. Please inform us if you do, so we can change the name on your registration and barcode.

HOW MUCH DOES THIS COST?

$30. Less than the cost of a single date for most folks. Food and beverages (alcohol as well as non-alcoholic) are available for purchase.

ABOUT Michele O’Mara, LCSW, Ph.D.

Relationships are my thing. Some would say, my obsession. While I only scored an 83.75% on my own “How Lesbian Are You” test,  don’t let that fool you. Since returning to school in the ’90s for my MSW, I knew exactly what I wanted to do: help lesbian couples grow love. 

I am that person who has built her life around one thing: lesbian relationships and women loving women. For fun, I do things like create online quizzes at asklesbians.com, to learn more about real lesbians. Or I write books. like, “Just Ask: 1,000 Questions to Grow Your Relationship,” to give couples an easy way to communicate. (www.1000question.app) And, now that our boys are young men, my love, and my wife, Kristen, and I are growing lesbian love through Lesbian Couples Retreats and The Lesbian Roadshow throughout the U.S. in awesome destinations where our motto is, “love out loud” with Adventures in Love.  You can learn more about those at lesbiancouples.co.
