Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT IS SECOND DATE SOCIAL?
Second Date Social is a membership platform that enhances your single life experience. Members join Second Date Social to meet peers & potential matches, learn new things, find camaraderie, put themselves out there, give back, and be active, together. Simply put, we create opportunities for Columbus singles to connect in life, in learning, and in love!
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF MEMBERSHIP?
If you have found it difficult to meet quality singles or you are going on dates with little to no potential, you’re not alone – and you don’t have to be! One of the benefits of Second Date Social is that you are part of a local community of like-minded singles who want to put themselves out there and meet somebody new.
Since our members are active and love to try new things, another benefit of membership is our curated calendar of social events, sports leagues, and volunteer activities – with something to pique everyone’s interest. And with few exceptions, all of our events for singles are included in your membership fee!
We also ensure all members meet our criteria and pass a background check before being approved.
And since we are 100% offline, there is no need to download another app or stress over an online dating profile. Second Date Social members are singles worth meeting!
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 focus on helping our members make authentic connections with quality people.
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 20s to their 60s. 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.

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?
