Strike a Match lit up its launch party at The Vic this past Saturday, June 2.
While the rain came pounding down, it was nothing but shine as guests bundled up under the patio’s rooftop with drinks in hand. Conversations swirled around Toronto’s newest dating service and all the cute eye-candy in view.
“Who isn’t tired of floating torsos and headless horsemen on Grindr?” was the question on everyone’s lips.
“Strike a Match is a genuine way to interact and connect with local men,” says founder Chad Simon. “We take that extra step to ensure online dating doesn’t just stay online.”
Through Strike a Match’s personalized process of a quick-and-simple questionnaire, followed by an in-person meeting with matchmaking professionals, the new dating company sets up and organizes three "strike a match" dates.
From the usual 20-something socialites to men well into their '40s, dudes of all colours of the rainbow were celebrating the company's debut. Something was definitely burning when someone boisterously ran into the streets and danced in the rain at the end of the party. Now that’s how you put out a flame. — Logan Ly
