For those who’ve developed an intolerance to Tinder
Matchmaker Kaila Perusco runs a grown-up speed-dating night called Conscious Dating, which is all about creating thoughtful conversation and genuine connections through games and other conversation starters.
This time around, Perusco is pairing up potential lovers through the art of gnocchi making. Her nonna once said that romance starts in the kitchen, so she'll be tasking her single males and females with pasta making before everyone sits down for a meal and a couple of glasses of vino.
The dating event includes conversation cards and activities to get to know each other in a more authentic way. You note down who you’d like to see again and matches are notified after the event. There’s no age restriction, but previous events have attracted people mostly in their 20s and 30s.
