Make Your Impact
Hosted by Quddus Phillippe, Carmina Becerra + Camera Ready
Are you an entrepreneur or an artist changing the world? Are you ready to amplify your impact?
The world needs you, like yesterday!
As they say, "only the ones who are crazy enough to think they can change the world actually do." And as we say, "only the ones who are committed enough to work on themselves actually do."
Now that there's more competition for eye balls. The question is... What are you doing to standout and raise the bar?
After 32 years of combined experience in television and interviewing the biggest stars in the world, we've seen that everyone struggles with the same stuff when it's time to hit the record button.
Is your inner critic loud when you're about to go on? Is your perfectionism dimming your passion? Would practice and feedback make a difference?
That's where we come in.
Curated Dinner Party
Hosted by Alex Sommer + Dine Offline
We once read that it takes an average of six-hours of online "dating" to meet one person in-person. That's crazy!
Who has time for that?!
Dine Offline brings connecting back to the real world! We host handpicked dinner parties at restaurants, introducing you to new friends over a gourmet meal.
With four to eight attendees per dinner, we ensure all guests of the opposite sex
meet your dating desires (age, religion, height, ethnicity, etc.). Plus, your host
Alex will provide conversation topics, and ensure you have one-on-one time with
Throw in a romantic, three-course meal on top of that, and you’re in for a fun
evening to remember!
* Experience will be curated based first applied. If October 19th isn't a match, you'll be added to Dine Offline's invitation list and receive future invites from us. We got you!
Join My Table
Hosted by Christina Weber
My hope is to be a mother someday. For now, I take the children of The Orphaned Starfish Foundation (OSF) as my own.
Join my table at the 13th Annual Gala where Dreams Come True! I'm a part of the host committee. I'll introduce you to so many good people throughout the evening. We'll check out the auction, eat, dance and mingle. Party time!
My table fits ten (10) people. Purchase one ticket for yourself. Or grab two and I'll matchmake you with a dream date. Tickets are $500. This is all for the kids!
OSF creates change in the lives of over 10,500 orphans, victims of abuse and poverty worldwide by helping them develop computer and life skills needed to succeed. CNN recently covered their story here.
The founder and his wife, Andrew and Dilia Stien, are best friends. They live in a modest one-bedroom apt in Astoria and give nearly everything they have to the children. This is the type of romantic partnership I hope to create. And I can't wait to share them with you!
Message me after you get tickets and we'll begin to plan - firstname.lastname@example.org!
Hello, new friends. I'm Fatema Hamdani, an entrepreneur living in NYC. I'm planning this experience from South Africa!
Although I love my career, I'm also open to the idea of creating a meaningful relationship. Online dating isn't of interest, so with the help of Underground Unattached and Christina Weber, I'm curating a party to host!
The event is my treat. And I plan to be in good company - surrounded by friends and friends of friends.
I imagine guests to be fun, well-appearing humans who enjoy life, meeting new people and sharing stories. You'll range in age from late-twenties to early-forties.
For those who join, come with a story in mind to share. The theme is fun! We'll each have 3-mins.
For example, I may share about the time one of my normal wreck dives turned out to be the most exciting dive with 15-20 bull sharks!!
The venue is beautiful and private to us shared by a friend. I'll provide delicious small bites to eat.
My ask is that guests please BYOB. One rule, no red wine.
If you're interested in joining, please take a few moments to submit answers below. It helps us to get to know you and curate the space.
While we wish everyone could attend, we're limited in space.
If you seem like a match based upon shared interests with myself and others, I'll send you an email with the location to confirm.
If you don't hear from us, please know Christina is working on other opportunities to gather.
Excited by the idea of meeting you! <3

This is about finding connection 🌟, not matches.
This is an online dating experiment where we do the swiping for you. The catch? Sign-up, fill out our survey, and answer honestly. From there, we’ll help you find people around the city that you’d vibe with.
In fact, you will be invited to parties to meet these folks. All you have to do is show up, be yourself, and make new connections. 🚫 No profiles, no swiping, and no more cheesy pick-up lines. All that stuff is just a game.
When you get an invite, we’ll let you take a peek at the guest list. If you RSVP, you’ll be added to a group chat to get know a bit about each other 24 hours before the event. This is the only moment you’ll spend talking to people online, the rest will unfold at the event.
Crush Club events will take place in secret locations across Manhattan. This is not a speed dating event. This is a party — full of interesting and like-minded folks, carefully curated based on interests, values, and community groups. It’s like meeting the tribe you didn’t know you were a part of.
We believe in the law of attraction. If you focus on being your authentic self, then you will naturally attract the right kind of people around you. Don’t they say it just happens when you aren’t trying too hard? Just keep it 💯.
Online dating is more complicated than it needs to be. It has given us unrealistic expectations and more anxiety about finding “the one”. Well, the Ancient Greeks had a more holistic definition of love, they identify 6 types:
- 💋 👅 🔥 Sexual passion (Eros)
- 🤗 🤝 👩❤️👩 Deep friendship (Philia)
- 🙈 👯 ⚽️ Playful love (Ludus)
- 🌍 😇 🌈 Selfless love (Agape)
- 💗 💫 💍 Longstanding love (Pragma)
- 💖 💆 👑 Self-Love (Philautia)
The more you enrich your life with these types of relationships, the more you will thrive. Crush Club is meant for you to find all 6 forms, but it begins with a crush — that initial moment where you meet and feel a connection with someone. So you might make a new friend, find your business partner, or even your next date.
It’s time to approach online dating differently, are you up for it?

🎉 When are these events happening?
ASAP! The more people sign up the better. Tell all your friends! I’m hoping to throw the first Crush Club event as early as next week April 14th. Please note that you might not be invited to the first event. It depends if we have enough for certain pools of people. So please, tell all your friends!
🤷 Who are you inviting to these parties?
Based on your survey results, I will try to curate guests lists based on shared values, interests, and communities. However, I will also make sure the guest list is diverse and inclusive!
😳 Why are you asking so many questions?
We want to make sure we connect you people you get along with. You’re only going to do this once. No need to download an app. All you get are invites. It seems a lot but it’s really minimal effort down the road. Pro-tip: Answer the survey honestly, that will improve your results!
🔮 How do you decide who is invited?
We match people based on shared values and passions. I also compare big 5 personality traits (the 20 questions). I am referencing psychology theory from Dr. Michal Kosinksi’s research. His work indicates that humans prefer to bond with people who have similarities in these areas. I won’t bore you with the science but if you are curious, let me know so we can nerd out.
🙄 I don’t do well in social gatherings
Every Crush Club event will have a host to help facilitate things. When you arrive at the event, there will be some icebreakers to make it easier for you to chat with folks. Don’t worry, we’ll be there to support you!
🙆 Why are you doing this?
My name is Ruth, I’m doing my Masters in Interaction Design at SVA. For the past 7 months, I’ve been studying Online Dating for my thesis. I’ve analyzed this topic through the lens of design, psychology, neuroscience, economics, and behavioural science. After hearing my friends and everyone around complain about online dating, I thought I’d look for opportunities to improve human interaction and connection.
🤓 I want to learn more about your work
I have documented some of my major lessons, insights, and other dating experiments on my blog: Tinder Lovin’.
