CitySwoon holds the official Guinness World Record® for the World's Biggest Blind Date.
Held at the iconic Sydney Opera House on the Friday 21st February, 712 Sydneysiders took their place in history at what is surely Sydney's most prestigious singles party.
There were some amazing statistics from the night, 36% of people gave their date the highest possible rating, saying that they would like to see them again. People were not only matched to their dates but also more loosely to everyone in their group of about 24 people. A whopping 72% of people wanted to see someone that they saw or met on the night again. We're pretty happy with the success of the matching algorithm!
There was also a lot of positive feedback about how friendly the night was. As a result we are running a series of CitySwoon Date Nights, which have been hugely successful. These nights are a mix between a party and speed dating, with 3 dates lasting 15 minutes each and group mingling time, where everyone on the night is matched to everyone else. You can join a date night here now.
