Our Story

Combining nearly 30 years of experience in helping people make real life connections, the husband-wife team of Derek Grosso and Nicci Sprouse-Grosso decided to “combine forces” in business to create Second Date Social, a membership platform for Columbus singles that is 100% offline and truly authentic.

Our founders truly have a passion (and a knack) for helping people meet, and this endeavor is a natural progression of their strengths.

Taking Derek’s entrepreneurial expertise in building successful membership-based models across the country and merging it with Nicci’s talent as an executive matchmaker helping singles find love throughout the Midwest, Second Date Social is poised to be the next movement in the dating industry.

Our mission is to connect one million people in life, in learning, and in love.
