Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT IS SECOND DATE SOCIAL?
Second Date Social is a membership community for Columbus singles offering social events, sports leagues, and service opportunities. We’re a brand-new concept with a traditional approach to dating! Members can expect to make meaningful connections with peers and potential matches in a safe environment.
Our mission is to connect one million singles in life, in learning, and in love. We invite you to experience dating the way it was meant to be… face-to-face.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF MEMBERSHIP?
Do you find it difficult to meet quality singles? Are you frustrated with online dating? Are you going on dates with little to no potential? You’re not alone – and you don’t have to be!
If you’re someone who wants to be more social, who wants to learn, and who wants to meet like-minded local singles, Second Date Social could be a fit for you.
Our members are active and love to try new things. That’s why we offer a curated calendar of events, interactive workshops, and volunteer activities. In addition to fitness classes and sports leagues, members also have access to a member lounge & event space in downtown Columbus!
Whether you’re casually dropping by the member lounge & event space during social hours, connecting with other singles over a co-ed game of sand volleyball, or learning a new skill with other local singles, there is something to pique everyone’s interest.
And since we are 100% offline, there is no need for swiping or dating profiles.
NO APPS TO DOWNLOAD OR ONLINE PROFILES TO CREATE?
That’s correct! While innovation is leading us forward, there is something to be said for old-fashioned, tried-and-true dating philosophies and ways of meeting quality singles – face to face and in real life. And unlike online dating services and dating apps where anyone can join, Second Date Social’s exclusive membership process ensures members are vetted, authentic, and accountable.
DO YOU SCREEN POTENTIAL MEMBERS?
Yes. Second Date Social’s membership process is thorough – not everyone is approved to join. Our process is designed to ensure all members meet our criteria and pass a background check before being approved.
HOW IS SECOND DATE SOCIAL DIFFERENT FROM OTHER DATING SERVICES OR DATING APPS?
Second Date Social members are singles worth meeting! Three unique focus areas differentiate us: our exclusive vetting process (including background checks) for all potential members, our curated calendar of member experiences, and our member lounge & event space in downtown Columbus.
At Second Date Social, we create the atmosphere and you make the connections.
WHAT IS THE AGE RANGE OF YOUR MEMBERS?
Second Date Social members are men and women of all ages. Membership ranges from singles in their mid 20s to late 50s. Our unique programming is designed to intrigue and encourage all ages to connect, grow and feel inspired. Certain events and experiences are tailored to specific age ranges as well.

WHAT ARE THE MEMBERSHIP PRICING OPTIONS?

Membership can be paid monthly or upfront and varies in pricing from $16-$26 per month (depending on your membership plan). There is a one-time $25 initiation fee that is paid upfront.
ARE THERE EXTRA FEES TO ATTEND EVENTS?
Most of our events and offerings will be included in your membership fee, with the exception of athletic leagues and some events & workshops.
DO YOU OFFER MEMBERSHIP/PROGRAMMING FOR THE LGBTQ COMMUNITY?
While we are not currently set up for LGBTQ+ events/experiences, it is part of our plan! As we continue to grow our membership, our goal is to expand our options and events to include a wider range of programming for LGBTQ singles, as well as events categorized by age.
