Deciphering Your Equation for Love




For the first time ever, Gayquation presents an intense 2 day course on y(our) equation of finding love... called Bond.

You will get intimate insight from one of the most experienced matchmakers and coaches in the industry: Nick Papadopoulos. With over 20 years of matchmaking, specialized in the gay male community, his knowledge is now yours. You will not receive a more nuanced and detailed breakdown of not only your chances of finding a long term partner but specific optimization - customized to your own criteria, demo, location and story.

Let's face it - dating as a single, gay man is not easy - it never was, especially in 2022 with a swipe right/swipe left culture and an ever diminishing LTR-seeking pool. So please note this course may not be suited for everyone. You will hear some tough talk, often sensitive in nature, as Nick will dig deep into the numbers, odds and present your own personal business plan to finding love. From those who have been coached by him, they would tell you his method, knowledge and transparency are beyond compare. What separates Nick from other matchmakers is his forthrightness, expertise and tailored approach, suitable for ALL gay men - from single fathers to those just recently out of the closet; from those living in rural parts of the country to those who come from first generation families; from seniors to Gen Z.

You will also get a chance to meet other gay men, like yourself, and perhaps an opportunity to talk about your story to the group or during your personalized one-one-one session. And although this is not a speed dating event, you may even meet the love of your life or some new friends - all from different parts of the world. Bonding will come in many forms.

Please join us this summer for the most comprehensive and detailed path to finding a long and ever-lasting partner.
