June 3, 2010 Black Forest Brew Haus's SPEED DATING

Dear Gail,
One of my lasting memories of that faithful evening is the way your eyes lit up when I told you at the end of the event that I was  interested in Elaine. There was something in the way you repeated her name with a sly grin on your face that told me that you approved of my choice. 
And what a sage you turned out to be!
Fast forward 8 mos. later, and things are still fabulous! Imagine me, the person accused by many of being too picky, saying that Elaine is the best thing that ever happened to me. I don't think that I will ever forget my first Speed Dating event with you, because it gave me a brand new avenue to explore for meeting people (and totally rewrote what I thought about Speed Dating from having seen the movie Hitch). I cannot tell you how impressed I was by how normal and friendly everyone was toward me that night.
Thanks Gail for everything and keep doing what you do!
Be well my friend.


AUGUST 5th 2011

Last Saturday morning I rented the Elwood Theater in East Northport to show a home made movie.  Elaine had no idea what was coming because she thought we were going to see the latest Harry Potter movie.  Since the movie theater was pitch black when we walked in, she had no idea that our family and close friends had arrived a half hour before we did and were sitting in front of us. You can imagine her surprise and ultimate joy when the movie told a comical version of our courtship and culminated in my wedding proposal.  The look of confusion on her face as she kept looking back and forth at me and the movie screen was totally priceless.  When the lights finally came up my nieces held up a sign that read "say Y-E-S" with the words "welcome to the family" inside the letter E.  After I reminded her that this was the part that required an answer from her, Elaine responded with a resounding yes.


3 years later  
John and Elaine, stopped by Finley's of Huntington, which is just one of the many places I host events. The couple stopped in to say hi, and and show off with a smile, their new wedding rings. 


They were married on a beautiful Island with close family and friends. John whispered THANK YOU to me as he left holding hands with Elaine.


PS: John did not attend ONE event to have this happen. But because he continued to attend with a good outlook and attitude, his success did not take long.

**UPDATE** A Beautiful Wedding Story
NOV 30th 2012

I am having the time of my life at this year's Port Jefferson Dickens Festival

The fairytale dream wedding has come to life. Nothing could be more perfect as this has been. I feel like Cinderella! I am wearing the most beautiful clothing. I went to the ball.
I married Michael J. Freed, my Prince Charming.

I have enjoyed some of the most wonderful meals and ambiance at some incredible restaurants including: Ruvo where we had the wedding, The Steam Room where we grabbed a quick bite, Schaffer's who provided delectables at the ball, Pace's who provided some of the food for the characters, Tequilla Jack's where we toasted to our future.

And, the celebration is continuing all weekend in a beautiful sea-side town turned back in time to the Victorian Era, my favorite time period, all decked out for my favorite holiday season.

The well wishes from family and friends who have traveled from near and far as well as the many new people we have met this weekend have been overwhelming. Some amazing moments for me included: the little baby boy who had been crying after seeing Santa turning to all smiles when he saw me and reaching for a hug and the little girl whose eyes and mouth popped opened wide and asked if I was Cinderella. I was asked if I was the Sugar Plum Fairy, Mrs. Christmas, the Snow Queen, and a princess; I was proud to tell them I was a bride!

PS: My groom and I were even interviewed by Ken Grimball from News12. — at Port Jefferson, NY





May 29, 2011 BBQ at Belmont Lake State Park

I had a great time Sunday at the BBQ. It was the first BBQ I have ever attended with you. So far, I really like all of your events. I cant tell you how your organization has changed my life. I use to sit home on my days off and clean. Now I made some new lady friends at the luncheons and even though I haven't meet Mr. Rights just yet, I loved the speed dating too. Thanks Gail. Your doing a great job....



July 18, 2010 RE: Finley's  SPEED DATING party 

Hi Gail! 

I attended the speed dating event in Huntington on Thursday and wanted to tell you that I really enjoyed myself.  It was the first time I tried speed dating and I would highly recommend it to everyone I know! I actually went on a date with one of my matches yesterday and we had a really lovely time! He was my first choice and I was just so delighted that I was able to meet him and get to know him better. I just wanted to thank you for organizing the event and restoring my faith in finding the right person! 

Thank you!!!  :)

Love, Jessica

July 15, 2010 Finley's  SPEED DATING party 

Dear Gail:

It was only about four months ago on a summer afternoon when I decided to give speed dating a try again. 

The night of the event, I walked in Finley's of Huntington Village, and I started thinking what a positive experience this would be.

I imagined meeting different types of people, absorbing the summer breeze outdoors while enjoying a nice buffet dinner and a cocktail. 

I met several interesting men and shared many smiles and laughs. The night was going very well


Then I met Doug, in one of my turns, and our personalities were very compatible, there was harmonious chemistry between us. He had a cute laugh and beautiful white teeth. 

I left Finley's that night looking forward to getting my matches the following day. 

As I drove home, I had an idea of who my matches might have been, however, Doug was the guy I was happiest about meeting.

The next day, I received my matches via email along. I also received an email from Doug, next a phone call, next a wonderful and memorable date. 


I am pleased to report Doug and I just moved into a cozy little cottage, overlooking a beautiful little lake. We are both very happy together and are thankful we were given the opportunity to meet at 7-in Heaven Speed Dating. 


Thank you, Gail! 


Warmest Regards, 



Treehouse Merrick SPEED DATING party

Hi Gail,
Although you've lost a co-host, I am happy to report that Rick & myself are very happy together after dating almost six months. We met at one of your speed dating events at the Treehouse in Merrick and it's been absolutely wonderful since then. I couldn't imagine someone that I would get along with better than Rick.
He is a "one in a million".
I worked as your co-host for over 2 years but it just took that one special person who caught my eye and visa versa. Patience paid off!
We look forward to many, many more happy times together.
I know you miss your long time co-host, but a success testimonial says more about your business and how it really does bring people together. Keep up the good work, Gail!



October 13, 2009 note from Jim 

It was your singles dance at the 56Th Fighter Group on Tue. Sept. 8Th 2009 that you introduced me to Jennifer "A new first timer" with your 7-in-heaven singles group!
We were sitting down at the same table eating the food that you had arranged for the group, in between the dancing sessions. You came over to me and introduced Jen to me and said something about her being new. I had already checked her out on the dance floor but as luck would have it we never did get to dance w/ each other as there were a lot of people there that night! I was glad you took the time to say hello to me and to introduce me to Jennifer!
We spent the rest of the night talking, getting to know each other. I asked her to go to the outdoor area to talk cause it was a little noisy and it was a nice night. We took a couple of drinks with us and had more great conversations. I asked her if she wanted to sit down at a table and she agreed. I actually stunned her as I pulled out the chair for her (I guess women are not use to meeting many gentlemen). We stayed outside till we noticed they were locking up the outside doors (trying to lock us out of the bldg.--they were shutting down for the night at 11:00 pm).
We continued our conversation in a fairly empty parking lot for about another hour and we exchanged phone numbers. We have had many great dates since then and we both believe we have great chemistry together since that first meeting! I have never felt this intense an attraction for anyone ever (and I'm 44 and have dated many, although never married and she'll be 41 in another week. She was never married and had no children-- a must for me as I want to start my own family. She is very pretty, smart, and tiny--more must haves for me as I am also a very picky guy). Thank you Gail for what you have done for us!
I'll keep you informed as our relationship grows stronger all the time!

Thank you

from Jim

UPDATE: 11/1/2009 9:33 AM- Jim writing to his friend Bill to encourage him to get out and give it a try!


Gail the owner of this company the one you met and ate burgers w/ at her boat slip and the one that introduced me to Jennifer!! Has some great stuff for you to try out and meet new singles! 
It couldn't hurt for you to check out her website to see what is going on and where!! They sometimes go to Queens as well. They  rented a large fishing boat last summer with food + drink which flowed for the singles. She's had BBQ parties at many parks and beaches including Jones Beach, upstate NY bus trip to the Renaissance Faire, (She has also done white water rafting), miniature golf at Eisenhower Park, single's dances (56th Fighters Club in Farmingdale next to airport-- where I met Jennifer) speed dating and fondue parties at restaurants all over LI and Queens!
Its all about getting out and meeting other singles who like to have fun!! She'll probably have a ski trip (Jennifer + I would probably go- yes she loves skiing and riding too) and hikes in the state parks upstate planned, mountain biking and maybe even a camping trip too; Gail is smart (and I know she is-- oh yes, this is now her Full Time job-- she has no boss or 9-5 job)!
Since I'm happy as a pig in s... for her introducing me to Jennifer I'm sending her this email thanking her for the 2nd time-- so she knows that what she does is great and is affecting people's lives in a positive way. She should know most people are probably too lazy to take the time to fill her in on details like this.... but not me!!

Your friend,

And .......  Jim last reported on May 26, 2010 
In case u are wondering--Jennifer and I are still dating and enjoying our time together-all thanks to you introducing us 


Sent : 9/5/2010 - 10:33 PM   RE: Event- Labor Day Weekend BBQ 9/5/10 

Dear Gail,


I just wanted to share with you how your efforts touched me and to thank you so much.

 This past weekend I had a horrible experience with another singles organization that included my children. When we arrived my children and I did not feel welcome, at all. I initiated introducing myself and tried to get the other kids to play with my kids. It was terribly disappointing and rejecting. So, I decided to leave. We left early Sunday morning. I was so happy to be home, yet I felt disheartened over the experience. My kids decided to go to their Dad's house. So when I checked my email, I saw your event for today. I had remembered having so much fun at the last event I attended,  I decided to go to the BBQ on 9/5/10. When I arrived I ran into some people I had met at other events of yours I attended. I can not tell you how welcome I felt and accepted. I loved playing the volleyball and talking to other people. Although, you must get thank you emails for those who make that "love connection", I wanted to write you to thank you for having this business. I know you put a lot of work and effort to make the events successful. 

And I have tremendous gratitude for having a place to go today- which was the highlight of my weekend! 

It was exactly what my damaged soul needed for some healing, from the awful experience with the other singles organization.  

I will see you at future events.

I wanted to express my sincere thanks for a great single's party event held on Saturday.  The people were very nice and sociable, and I was surprised as to how many showed up.  Overall the party was fantastic and most people were involved with others, and such perfect weather for the occasion.

I enjoy volunteering myself, especially when I have some free time on my hands in my busy hectic schedule each month.  Believe it or not, yesterday was indeed a time for me to relax and enjoy the company of others and in helping out – of which I did. 


Thanks, and have a great weekend - and pass my best regards to John, for he was a wonderful, hard working, friendly cook.

Hi Gail,


Thanks for the opportunities!  I personally think "7 in Heaven speed dating" is great.  It gave me the opportunity to determine potential compatibility and chemistry. Furthermore, I had the chance to see how I felt and interacted with other possible candidates---opposed to online dating where you can only measure potential through an IM chat box! lol!


I'll keep you posted if it turns out to be a success.  Should I come across any single friends, I will tell them about 7 in Heaven.

Dear Gail,
Peggy and I really hit it off, and I wanted to thank you.  I feel like a kid again.
I also wanted to tell you that I think Speed Dating is the best invention since sliced bread.  For people like me, who don't do well just walking up to strangers in bars (or elsewhere), it is a way to meet more people in one night than I might otherwise meet in years. Peggy is a computer geek (like me), likes the same entertainment that I do, and we also share a similar sense of humor and outlook on life.
Thanks again,

I know that Jack already e-mailed you a few weeks ago but I wanted to offer my thanks to you also for running such a great service.

I am truly believing I found the "mythical unicorn" in Jack.  I was beginning to think that wonderful men (the mythical unicorns) didn't exist, at least for me. You hear about them, some claim to have seen them, but it's still a myth to you and, frankly, a girl's gotta see it with her own eyes.  I gave speed dating a shot figuring that if someone was going to schedule a time and plunk down a few dollars to meet someone, maybe they'd actually be looking for something real.  I was hopeful, yet guarded.  Along comes Jack, with everything I ever hoped for in a man.  Kindness, awesome humor, talent, brains, compassion, emotional availability, gentlemanly, considerate, passionate and responsible (and more!), all tied up in an impressive package (topped with an incredible smile) that is easy to get along with and brings real joy to my life.  My friends are astounded at how I found this "mythical unicorn" and are spreading the word about how good speed dating really can be. If you didn't bring this service to Long Island, I'd still be searching.  Thank you so much for putting this all together, you've changed our lives.



Sent : 1/4/2010 - 9 :12 PM   RE: Event- Comedy Night out 12/29/09 


I think its important you know how much you touch people's lives...I went to the Comedy Night for singles last Tuesday night and met 4 other outstanding people. The laughter broke the ice and we all became friends rather quickly. We email a great deal and  are all having dinner together on Friday night. You never know what happens when you break out of your comfort zone and just come to one of your events.  Friendships help the loneliness of singleness.  Now we all have something to look forward to on the weekends as well as the new year.  See you soon at the Salsa dancing and the ice skating events.  Thanks for all you do.  Your passion shows.  I tell everyone they should go.

Thanks again
