Dating, usually at an arranged event or club, through passing notes and gesturing. Soothing music or soothing whitenoise, such as sounds of waterfalls, is usually put on to create a tension free atmosphere. Idea developed by New Yorkers Paul Rebhan and Tony Noe who wanted to break out of stale dating patterns and loud settings where they couldn't hear each other.
Me and this guy I met at a silent dating party used up a whole notebook in getting to know each other.
