Playing the Field is a science informed speed friending and dating event. We’ll provide series of fun activities that will help you get the ball rolling to embark on the friend-posal or date-venture of your dreams! Bring a friend, make a friend, meet a love interest, or just enjoy a dose of information provided by relationship scientist Yuthika Girme.
Created out of an interest in: meeting people in a meaningful way. At the typical speed dating event or party, there’s so much working against you to create that spark: unbearably loud music, spilled drinks, and dry elevator pitches. Playing the Field wastes no time by providing activities that are grounded in the science of attraction. Through a series of novel and interactive games, everyone will be given an opportunity to be their bad, beautiful selves!
Might remind you of: that warm and fuzzy feeling inside.
Looks like: science meets your ideal social setting. Participants will be partnered at two-person tables for multiple rounds of speed dating or friending. A sneak peek into some of the titled activities to come:

Useful if: you’re looking to make new friends or more in an unconventional setting and learn about relationship science.
