She may have been single, but Jill Stewart knew she wasn't alone in her search for the perfect mate.
"Many single people comment on how difficult it can be to meet other like-minded singles, especially in Rochester," Stewart said.
So in February 2006, Stewart started Savvy Singles of Rochester and began hosting monthly social get-togethers, annual speed-dating events, dinner parties, group bike rides, ski adventures, trips to the theater, sporting events, concerts/plays, winery tours, book clubs, boating outings, sleigh rides, costume parties, dance lessons and community volunteer opportunities. The group now has about 800 members, and the monthly singles mingles typically draw 40 to 60 people on weeknights and 60 to 100 people on weekends, she said.
And while Stewart didn't meet her match at any of the events, several people have.

Then it happened, Stewart met her "prince."

"This is a fun, efficient way for busy singles to meet," said Jill Topness, founder and event planner for Savvy Singles of Rochester.
"You are introduced to up to a dozen others in your category through a series of six-minute 'pre-dates,'" Topness said."We facilitate the whole thing so there's no awkwardness, no pressure, no embarrassment and no games ... just great fun."
Topness described the mini-dates as musical chairs with chemistry.
The age range for the Valentine's Day speed daters is anywhere from 28 to 48, and men are always needed.
"It combines a glimpse of personality and a chance to ask a few questions of each date to uncover potential compatibility.It is an excellent opportunity to meet many of Rochester's most eligible bachelors and bachelorettes," Topness said.
When participants arrive, they will be given a scorecard to keep track of their level of interest and-or compatibility for each speed date.At the end of the evening, cards will be collected and tallied by the party hosts.If the interest is mutual for both parties, personal information will be exchanged for a later date.
Topness advised speed daters to come prepared.
