To gay men in Washington DC and in surrounding areas, Professionals in the City invites you to our Gay dating Washington DC event.
Gay single professional men, we welcome you to our "mini" dating venue.
Speed Dating New York events take place at Mustang Harrys, Seven and Legends.
What can you expect at Professionals in the City's gay dating Washington DC venue?
Well, for approximately one hour, you will have a series of dates with multiple gay single men.
The event, hosted by London-based dating app Loveflutter, is pushing its #Say No To Shallow campaign to showcase personality over appearance.
The company threw a similar stunt in London last July, where singles decorated their bags with doodles and 140-character fun facts about themselves.
Although this is a fast-track dating environment, it will be much less hectic than normal since this will be a "mini" version of our usual dating events.
