Authentic Dating for men* Berlin

Mon Jul 10, 19:30 - Mon Jul 10, 22:00

Embodiment Center


Tired of the same old Grind?

Here’s your chance to connect more authentically, in person, with men* both like-minded and different.

You’ll have several encounters throughout the night. Each will be carefully guided, inviting you to be yourself, to communicate openly, and and explore multiples layers and flavours of connection. Come spark a flame or two!  

*Authentic Dating welcomes all men aged 18+, monogamous or non-monogamous, who identify as gay, bi, queer or trans, as well as people who identify somewhere on a gender-fluid male-to-non-binary spectrum.

Is this event for me?

If you are seeking....

  • Deep & meaningful conversations without small talky chit-chat
  • Exciting new connections, both romantic & platonic
  • An opportunity to explore & challenge your assumptions about others
  • A substance-free environment
  • Playful & sincere communication
  • A space to simply be yourself

....then this event is for you!

What will actually happen? 

You will be invited to explore four unique interactions, some of which are randomised and some of which you can choose. Each will involve a new set of instructions to help you communicate about topics that really matter to you. Each interaction will last 10-15 minutes.

At the end of each interaction, you will have the opportunity to share a contact detail on a piece of paper that you will only leave once you leave the event.

Consent is important: you always have the agency to choose how deep you go. You will never be forced to share information that you don't want to.

While we aim to achieve an even balance of ages, this is not always possible. However, what is guaranteed are skills that you can apply to any relationship. Simply come with an open mind and ready to connect.
