Dating With A Difference

Whether you are newly single, a serial dater or just had enough terrible Tinder dates, Date With Eight gives you a fresh new approach to meeting new friends, a partner or the woman or man of your dreams.

Date With Eight is exactly that, a date with seven other people  ~ 4 women and 4 men on the ultimate blind date! By meeting others in a safe environment, doing fun activities, and eating and drinking at places you enjoy, we think this is the perfect formula to finding your match*.

Why Date With Eight?

  • It's fun and exciting! Meet new people in relaxed, fun and social settings.
  • We arrange the date details; day, time and venue. The pressure is not left up to an individual to stress over.
  • It's safe ~ No personal information is shared and you can attend dates with friends, as long as they're single and Date With Eight members too.
  • No awkward conversations about splitting the bill. You pre-pay for what you agree to, and cover any supplements on the date.
  • There is no obligation ~ You are in control.  Difficult follow-up texts are a thing of the past; but you might have exchanged numbers with someone to set up your next 1-1 date.
  • It's worthwhile! No wasted time or money on meaningless dates. Participate in an activity, learn a skill or explore new restaurants, bars that you haven't tried before.

Date With Eight is considered the 'date scene without a screen' and takes advantage of the impressive dining scene and interactive activities that Auckland** has to offer. By creating opportunities where you can interact with other singles and be yourself without the pressure of needing to answer to a particular individual, is a pretty natural way to make connections.

* Disclaimer: There is no algorithm or science in who you go on your date with. We simply set the scene and basic requirements for each date; eg: Italian cooking in Mission Bay for 22 - 30 year olds, and leave it up to those who tick all these boxes to book.
