OnSpeedDating.Com and NaturallyCurly.Com join forces next month to host a “kinky” new singles event from 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm on Thursday, December 2, at Gramercy hot spot The Watering Hole.
Whether wavy, curly or kinky, girls with curls will be the mane attraction at this “Curls Gone Wild” speed dating event, where single men ages 25-48 will meet 10-25 curly-haired single women in one night.
“We have an "ask and you shall receive" policy, explains OnSpeedDating.com Co-Founder, Amber Soletti, NaturallyCurly's dating blogger. “If enough people request a speed dating theme, then we’ll make it happen. It’s funny because the Millionaire Matchmaker, Patti Stanger is so insistent that men want women with straight, sleek hair. Clearly not in NYC since we’re hosting a Curls Gone Wild event, not a “Play It Straight” event.
What is it about curly haired women that make men swoon?
“I’ve always had a thing for curly haired women”, says 35-year-old NY firefighter and resident single, Pedro BIsono. "They’re sexy, confident and I love that they can change their look on any given night. It definitely keeps things interesting.”
“My first curl crush was Jennifer Beals from Flash Dance," shares resident single David Parnes, 35. "She kind of ruined me for other women, as I now tend to only be attracted to women with curly hair."
A limited number of tickets (20 for men, 20 for curly-haired women) will be available for purchase starting Thursday, November 18, exclusively at OnSpeedDating.com for $35 each. Admission price entitles attendees to anywhere from 10 to 20 three-minute “dates”, drink specials and for the curly women in attendance, curly hair care products provided by top hair care brands like HerCut, Miss Jessie's, Devachan Salon and Deva Spa and Curlisto. BeautyTV will also provide women with free trial memberships to their website, where women can learn from top professional offering tips and tricks for caring for their hair.
"The timing is perfect for this event” says NaturallyCurly.com co-founder Michelle Breyer. “Since all the hype around Patti Stanger's curl-bashing comments on 'The Millionaire Matchmaker," we've heard from a number of men about how they love their girlfriends' and wives' waves, curls and kinks because it is a part of what makes them who they are. Men are attracted to women who are confident in who they are—whether they have straight hair or ringlets."
OnSpeedDating.com is an entirely new breed of speed dating. The service offers NYC singles niche events themed around dating deal breakers as well as quirks and fetishes like “Hot for Teacher”, “Date a Democrat”, “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes”, “Inked” for tattooed singles, “Non-Practicing Jew” night, “Have Passport, Will Travel”, “Mr. Right Now” and “Size Matters” for guys and gals with a hankering for height and “Wing Women” for women seeking a partner in crime when they hit the dating scene.
With the promise of at least 10-25 ‘dates’ per event, singles are sure to have their pick of matches.
