Sometimes you get much more than you ask for, and other times, much, much less. (Sorry, but it’s our party, and we only invite decent human beings.) But more specifically, if your submission denigrates women, sexualities, people of color, or the downtrodden, your submission will be rejected. It doesn’t have to be Dostoyevsky, or have perfect grammar, but make it readable.And on some occasions you get something you never, ever expected! That goes for businesses, too.• NO HATE TALK ALLOWED. (Yep, even if it’s just a little bit.)• YOUR SUBMISSION CAN’T GO OVER 300 WORDS. One or two sentence confessions will be rejected unless they’re super funny.• NO BUTTHOLE COMMENTERS.
Hello, and welcome to our newest blog, the Portland Dating Dispatch.
Dating in Portland, or anywhere for that matter, is a gorgeously terrifying and beautifully weird thing.
Much like a private club, not every dater is for us.
Those that tend to see the good in everything and everyone - are just what we and our daters are looking for. You can email [email protected] information as to the process of being added to the wait list. Published start times can be found in the event description.
It's all about what you Relish and finding someone to Relish those things with.
If you're tired of online dating, exhausted by meeting someone only to discover they're nothing like their profile - we offer an alternative.If your story is accepted for submission, we’ll post it ASAP.(Be patient, especially if you’re writing at two in the morning.) THAT'S IT! You know you've got a great dating story (one that went good, bad, or very weird) so share it with all of us right here at the Portland Dating Dispatch!We don’t find anything romantic about name tags, microphones and whistles – so we don’t use them! Daters that don’t like to settle and tend to set the trend rather than follow it. You will be sent a confirmation from us and your name will be noted on our Guest List.~~Do you screen your speed daters?We are in part defined by our venues and our crowd reflects such. Simply select your city from the tabs on the homepage for a listing of our events. In the 9 years we have had the pleasure of serving daters we've noticed the nicer a dater is to us, our hosts and each other, the more matches they get.Unparalleled service and personable hosts all in an environment - just your speed.
