Please note that we will enforce strict guidelines during this event to make sure everyone feels safe and comfortable.  Join us for a fun afternoon as we bring people together in a safe and responsible way in Central Park for our famous Differences Between Men & Women Great Debate Event.  This is one of our most favorite events especially for our single members who are looking to see just what the heck is going on in the minds of men and women when it comes to socializing, dating and relationships!

How it works:

  • When you register we will send you specific instructions on where to meet your host.
  • You must bring something to sit on (on the grass)
  • Space is limited to 16 people.
  • Before you attend the event you will be asked to email questions and topics that you would like to discuss that would be directed at the opposite sex.  ALL QUESTIONS WILL BE READ ANONYMOUSLY.
  • After each question has been presented to a specific gender, there will be time for that gender to respond.  There is usually a lively debate that will follow each question.
  • The event will end by 5:30pm at which time you may stay in the park or venture out with others for food and drink.

How will I find the group?  We will send you a confirmation email with exact locations, contact info and names of those who are hosting the event when you register. We will send follow up emails as we get closer, usually the night before or morning of.

Ages: 21+  Realistically, the questions that we all have can be “ageless”  and the wisdom of our older guests can be useful for our younger guests and vice versa   If this is an issue for you contact Dave at the address below and we can usually give you a very accurate idea of what to expect.

Who Comes to These?: Our activities attract NY Professionals from all backgrounds and professions who are looking to expand their social circles.  You will also find others who are looking to learn something, network for business, try something they have never done before or enjoy something they love doing but can’t get their friends to do. There may also be some people looking to find that someone special who share a passion for the same activities (but don’t make this the sole reason you come out).
