I know a secret about OnSpeedDating events that is pretty messed up: While most men pay for their events, many women get in for FREE.
The event organizer, who doesn't live in New York, usually does not get enough women for the events. So she asks her female friends to attend (for FREE). And many of them attend her same speed dating events (regardless of the age or niche) week after week. These events are at the Watering Hole Bar.
The OnSpeedDating events are somewhat of a sham. Yes, there are some nice people there and some women do pay, but it's not real when you can't get enough women to sign up and have to use fake women to fill the seats almost every week.
I've had multiple women at the events confirm this with me.
It's not fair when men have to pay, some women get in for FREE, and it's like this almost every week.
