About the event

Join us for this online only, virtual speed dating event designed for people living in Belfast.

You’ll meet 10-15 people for short dates lasting just four minutes - all from the comfort of home.

Our virtual speed dating events mirror the format of our real-life events. Upon signing into the event, you’ll meet our host who will explain the format to the group. You’ll then be transported to virtual tables for two which offer a one on one private chat environment for your first four-minute date.

You can join the event from any device that features a camera and a microphone and most phones and laptops are perfect for the job.
At the end of each date, the male participants will be moved to the next virtual table and the next date begins. The whole session will last approximately one hour.

After the event, simply head to our website and view a list of everyone you met at the event. Select who’s a yes, a friend or a no and our system will crunch the matches.

The following day your matches will be published, and you’ll be able to message your matches via our site and arrange your next virtual meet or in the not too distant future a real life date.

Our virtual speed dating events are guaranteed. If you don’t meet anyone you want to see again, your next virtual event is free.

Book now!

  Relaxed but well organised. Genuinely surprised at how much I enjoyed it. Think the chat with the host before and after the dating worked, made it feel more sociable.

Eleanor Verified Attendee
  It is a good way to meet people and the host was good. I thought there were too many dates though and a shorter goodbye would be better.

Hi Monika, thanks for joining us. A couple of the chaps left the event before the end on this occasion so that's probably why you didn't speak to everyone.

Lisa Verified Attendee
  Easy to understand system and smoothly run. Probably too expensive for what it is, a lot of the dates live quite far from me.  
Posted: 07/10/2020

Hi Lisa, thanks for the feedback. It's important to remember that every event is different so please try us again as you'll meet another group of people and maybe have more luck next time.

  Was nice that we had a bit longer than usual speed dating with each date, and that there weren’t too many dates in total.

  I liked that it was curated and I do feel like that make a difference with the people that were there. Everyone was really friendly and made a good effort at chatting so it wasn't awkward. The host, Arthur, was very clear in setting out the event and bought a jovial atmosphere.

ORIGINAL DATING IN THE PRESS

HOW IT WORKS

The beauty of Speed Dating Belfast lies in its no-nonsense approach. You take an equal number of single girls and guys, put them in a room and give them a few minutes to chat with every other member of the opposite sex.

When you get there

Original speed dating events in Belfast normally begin at 7.30pm. You will need to register with our hosts and to begin with they will issue you with a score sheet. This will help you to keep track of the singles that you would like to meet again and perhaps go on a date with. After a short period of mingling, your host for the evening who will run through detailed instructions and give you your starting position if you are a guy or table for the event if you are girl.

Meet & Mingle

A Belfast speed dating event is split into two halves, each lasting around an hour, there will be an interval at half time of about 15 minutes. You will have between 4 and 5 minutes with each person, after which you need to tick a box on your score sheet - "yes, I would like to meet this person again" or "no. Thanks but no thanks". Or "friend" if you'd like to get to know them platonically. Make sure that you do this after each date to keep track. Afterwards there is an opportunity for everyone to meet and mingle informally - this is often where the real action begins, so make sure you don't disappear too quickly!

Complete your score sheet

After the event you simply tick who you liked on the Original Dating website and the site works about your matches automatically. If the dates you have ticked as a "yes" have reciprocated you have a match. You will be able to view the first names and message them via our site online without revealing your email address until you are ready to. You'll be having proper first dates in no time.
