Gentlemen of London, this city needs you. Yes YOU!

Gentlemen of London, this city needs you. Yes YOU! The single one with the face and stuff.

I’m the first to declare that men are not from Mars and women are not from Venus. And yet there are some glaring behavioural differences – albeit socially constructed – between the sexes.

It’s one of these differences I’m going to identify now and I’m calling on the single men of London to step forth and be counted in discarding this discrepancy to the dustbin of history.

You see, when it comes to booking events women almost always book a few weeks in advance. Men, on the other hand, tend to leave it to the last minute until a final flurry results in the number of guys and girls becoming equal.

I have a theory that it relates closely to the ways in which we achieve orgasm but this is neither the time nor the place to indulge in such biosocioanthropological ramblings.

Instead this is a call to action. Gentlemen, we have 4 more sleeps until our wildly extravagant Spring Fling Party. The girls places are almost all sold out. The smart, savvy men about town are snapping up the remnants of the guys tickets.

Act before it’s too late! Book your Spring Fling Party tickets now and meet up to 300 singles in one evening and help stop me SHOUTING VIA THE INTERNET AND OVERUSING EXCLAMATION MARKS!

Click here NOW!

See you on Saturday you cool dashing fella you.



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.
