For the past few months we’ve secretly been building something we think is rather special. It’s our new mobile app, Mixeo™ and from now on it will power all the events we organise including our speed dating events, big parties our new Mixeo Socials. It’s the future of dating events, but what does that mean for you?

Mixeo makes matching easier

We’ve done away with paper score sheets and pencils for keeping track of who you meet at our parties. The Mixeo app does this all for you, safely storing your preferences on everyone as you meet them. This means you don’t have to login to our site the next day, your preferences are saved in real time during the event and everyone gets their matches far quicker.

Mixeo does matching & messaging

The morning after the event you’ll receive a notification from the Mixeo app when your matches are available. You’ll see a list of everyone you matched with directly on your phone.

Use our messaging feature to get in touch right away. It’s secure and easy to use and works just like WhatsApp. You’ll find you match more at Mixeo events.

Try it out this Thursday – half price

We’d like to invite you and your friends try our brand new event format, Mixeo Social at The Exhibit in Balham on Thursday, July 31 2014 starting at 7.30pm. Tickets are just £10.00 and are already selling fast.

What is a Mixeo Social?

In a nutshell it’s a party. 50 people, equal numbers of girls and guys all aged in their 20s and 30s. No speed dating here and no cringe factor. This is a totally new type of dating event and it's a lot of fun.

The icebreaker comes in the form of our brand new phone app, Mixeo. This app powers the whole event and ensures you meet and hopefully match with a lot of people.

How a phone app breaks the ice

Meet people and Mixeo will record who you meet and who you liked. As an incentive to keep people mingling, Mixeo gives out free drinks at random. You have a chance of winning each time you meet someone new. The more people you meet, the more chances you have of winning drinks though the night. This really helps to keep people mingling without the need for speed dating or the like.

It’s going to be a lot of fun and you’ll meet a lot of people at this party.

The beauty of Speed Dating London 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 London 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 a girl.

Meet & Mingle

A London 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.
