5-DATING

Singles invited to Catholic speed dating event in Glasgow

Bachelors and bachelorettes have been invited to a speed-dating event that hopes to help create Catholic couples.

‘Let’s Meet,’ a one of a kind, four-minute-date themed event, is to take place for Catholics aged 21-40 who are looking to find a partner.

Ticket sales are to be divided equally between men and women for the event on Saturday April 6 at Browns Brasserie & Bar, Glasgow at 7pm.

During the event women will sit at tables, with the men rotating around each one in order, allowing the Catholic singles to socialise with a wide range of people.

The attendees will have the opportunity to grab a few drinks in a relaxed atmosphere, and will meet people from various different dioceses.

Organisers said the event was born out of the 20-40 network, a project that arranges social events for young Catholics.

They said some people had met their partner thanks to 20-40 events so they decided to set up something specifically to focus on dating.

“This has been advertised in lots of places such as Paisley and Motherwell, so it’s quite a wide geographical area,” they said.

“It’s an opportunity for people to meet others whose paths might not otherwise cross.”

The evening is to last for around two to three hours, with a presentation at the beginning and a break halfway through.

An organiser added: “It’s been about six months in the making. So far, around half of the tickets have been sold—so any young Catholics looking for a space will have to get in touch soon before the venue reaches its capacity of 40.”

“If this goes well we might even think about doing a separate one for older Catholics,”
