GurSikh Speed Meeting has it's 2nd Success

Comments Email this Article
    GurSikh Speed Meeting, brought to you by, marks off another success. GurSikh Speed Meeting is intended to help single Sikhs find their match, the proverbial "CLICK". The idea for this project came from the ever popular '8 minute dating' which has spread throughout the major cities of the world. GurSikh Speed Meeting is focused on formalising a meeting process for like-minded individuals i.e. Gursikhs for possible marriage purposes.

    The concept of GurSikh Speed Meeting is simple. An equal number of Sardars and Sardarnis register. On the event date, each Sardar will meet a Sardarni and chat for a specified number of minutes rotating till they have met all the Singhnis. This face to face style of meeting has spurred much interest, in addition to, respecting the participant's privacy. Only if there is an agreed "CLICK" will an exchange of contact information occur. until this event, most Sikhs in search of their soulmate relied on family connections, matrimonial ads and the internet to find their match. GurSikh Speed meeting has made it much easier to find and meet people of similar interests, that may or may not be from one's locality, to determine quickly if there is a "CLICK".

    The 2nd GurSikh Speed Meeting event conducted in NYC on July 21st was extremely successful. The organizer has received over 400 emails to date from individuals from various age groups and different countries showing interest and support. "The energy, feedback, patronage, optimism, etc. that was shown prior to, following and at both events has been consistent and incredible!", quotes the founder and organizer of these meets, who prefers to remain anonymous. Participants attended from Australia, Toronto, California, Oregon, Colorado, Massachusetts, Virginia, as well as New York and New Jersey.

    Due to popular demand, GurSikh Speed Meeting is taking the show on the road with the first stop in Canada and then the West Coast. In addition, the age range will be narrowed and several different groups will be offered the opportunity to meet in future events beginning in San Francisco, California.

    See schedule below.
    Toronto – Saturday, September 2nd
    San Francisco - November 18th or 19th pending venue availability
    Chicago - 2007
    London - 2007
