Houston Social Source
DescriptionThe Houston Social Source is a local boutique-style social club, comprised of discerning, upscale professional Houston singles. The Houston Social Source delivers more than online dating; it is a community of Houstonians who desire to be entertained in a unique style at the hippest venues and in an innovative way that is singular to Houston.
Established in 1995, before the age of the big-box online dating industry - whereby matching and harmonizing attempted to compartmentalize and homogenize all singles - The Houston Social Source specializes and differentiates itself by offering “Extreme Dating” events. HSS prides itself on non-traditional mixers with fun twists. HSS comes up with original ideas or imports what's hot in bigger cities like LA, NY, and London to Houston. Houston is the 4th largest city in the USA – the possibilities are endless.
Past parties include:
The first Pheromone Party in the state of Texas. Participants at Nouveau Antique Art Bar brought a plain white T-shirt they had slept in for 3 nights in a row to be “sniffed” in search of that elusive attractive Pheromone. The event garnered attention from ABC-News 20/20, Fox 26 Houston, KPRC-TV Houston, Chron.com/29-95, the Houston Press and media as far afield as Dallas and Colorado.
HSS held the world-premiere of our “Texting Party” – whereby participants used an app on their phone to anonymously text fellow guests. Guests identities were ultimately revealed at the end of the night – once a connection had been made sans the prejudice of physical appearance.
Other one-of-a-kind events include: Cougar-BoyToy Speed Dating, Rescue Me Fireman, 7 Minutes In Heaven, Test-Drive Speed Dating, and Message In A Bottle to name a few. These events have garnered local media attention as stated above as well as Culturemap, The Examiner, KPFT, The Houston Chronicle and KHOU Channel 11.
HSS also holds traditional mixers per age range, ladies nights, brunches and networking parties. With approximately six to ten events a month there is never a dull moment in our social club.
