It's time to party!
SOCIAL IN THE CITY - Friday, 22 August 2014 - Dion, St Pauls, London

Just think, next Friday night, a buzzy group of up to 80 people, equal numbers of girls and guys, all up for meeting new people over Friday night drinks at a great venue. Optional speed dating sessions all night and a great icebreaker. This is a totally new kind of dating event you’re going to love it.

Meet people at your own pace or join one of our speed dating sessions which take place all night. Keep track of who you meet with our brand new mobile app, Mixeo™ and the next day the app reveals who you matched up with.

Free drinks to be won!

As a little incentive to keep everyone mingling the Mixeo app gives out free drink prizes at random. You have a chance to win each time you meet someone new. The more people you meet, the more chances you have of winning drinks and other goodies. It’s a lot of fun and ensures everyone meets a lot of people over a couple of hours. You're almost guaranteed to meet at least one person you want to see again!

The exciting bit

The next day Mixeo works out who you matched with (a match is when you both select each other as a ‘yes’) and sends the results to your phone.  You’ll also get a list of people that you matched with as friends.

Right away you can use Mixeo to send messages to the people you matched with, chat and to arrange to meet up again, all securely via the app.

Mixeo is the future of dating events and it’s exclusive to Original Dating.

This party is guaranteed

We’re confident that you’ll meet people you want to see again at this party. In the unlikely event you don’t meet someone you want to see again, your next event is totally free.

Don't worry if you don't have a compatible smartphone. You can still keep track of who you met on paper and get your matches on our website the next day.

We'd love it if you could join us next Friday, why not take the plunge and book now, you'll have a ball.

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 for speed dating London. 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.
