How do I attend a dating event?

Visit the dating events page, and register.

What can I expect?

A relaxed, non pressured social dating experience.

Single women socialise, enjoy a glass of wine, beer, spirits, soft drink, or just a cuppa!

It's all very easy going. 

You are then able to relax, chat and get to know others at your own pace.

All will have time and the opportunity to socialise and meet a number of single women in a natural non-forced way, with a view to swapping details and securing a date.

The fact that everyone present is there for the same reason takes the pressure off.

Bear in mind nothing is guaranteed, - dating in whatever form can take time. 

The nature of our dating events increases your chances of meeting someone with a view to a long-term relationship.

How much will it cost?

Attendance fees vary depending on venue and location. Each event listing will disclose the attendance fee.

How will I know others are attending?

There is a minimum guest requirement (25-30 venue dependent) for social dating events to take place.

What happens if the minimum number isn't met?

The event will be rescheduled.

You will have the option of a refund, or to keep your place on hold for the rescheduled or another upcoming social dating event.


Can I see other members' profiles?


Other dating sites and apps require you to upload a photo, enter some details, and then the searching begins. Swipe left, swipe right, swipe left...

There's no denying an attraction when viewing a photo, but a photo reveals little else.

Attending a social dating event means you are able to physically meet, socialise and chat with a number of women, therefore increasing your chances of making a real and positive connection. 

What's wrong with using dating apps?

Nothing at all. We are just offering an alternative, or a way to meet women in addition to dating apps.

Where will the dating events take place?

Currently in various locations within Devon & Cornwall, and the Southwest, UK.


Can I bring a friend with me?

No. Social dating events are held for single lesbians/non straight women seeking dates & relationships.​

​Will I be matched with someone?

SapphicSis Social Dating does not offer matchmaking (nor is it speed dating).

Can I contact someone after the dating event?

Only if they have given you permission to do so.


I'm too shy to to make contact with someone I like

Try not to worry about it. Not everyone can be that super-confident person. The first move can be unnerving in any situation. However, you may find that the conversation just flows to a natural positive end. Try not to pressure yourself and just enjoy the evening. See it as a social event first, and this may bring you a level of calm. The dating event host will also be there to discreetly and gently and put everyone at ease.

You are also able to give your details to the host to pass on to the person you are interested in. This will be done considerately, confidentially and with discretion.

I gave someone my details but they didn't get in touch

It may not mean they weren't interested in you. Their connection with you might have felt more like friendship, or they may have met someone who lives closer, or had more in common with regarding hobbies/lifestyle, etc.

The reasons can be endless and not necessarily negative.

Dating takes time. People need to feel sure.

Don't take it personally. There is someone out there for everyone. Social dating events go some way to

helping you find that someone.

Please note that personal details will never be sent or given to anyone without consent. 


I can no longer attend the dating event

No refunds are given for non-attendance.
