They say that dating is never an easy game to play and this is particularly true when you are a woman trying to find that ideal man.

From serious commitment-phobes to those guys who proclaim their love after the first date; it might seem that you are never going to find the right one for you.

We are here to help; here we present our top 5 dating tips to help you become an expert in dating and hopefully find the perfect guy for you!

Realise that not all men are the same

One thing that seems to plague us ladies is the thought that each and every man on the planet has exactly the same wiring. Whilst they have similarities, after all they are the same breed; there are just as many different types of guys out there as there are girls.

If you have had bad experiences in the past then leave them there. You might miss out on the opportunity of dating a truly marvellous catch just because you were tarnished by what happened previously.

Be you

Sounds simple, but showing your date that you are comfortable in your own skin and where you are in your life, can be really attractive.

Never try to project a different version of yourself or second guess who your date would like you to be.

Also, if the first date is successful and you move further towards a relationship, remember who you are. Changing is a natural progression when you share your life with someone but you should always cling on to those things that make you, well you.

Don’t be afraid to ask where it is heading

It might not be a great idea on the first date to ask if marriage is on the cards; but once you have settled into a few dates you should never be afraid to try and find out how they feel about you.

Sometimes second guessing whether you are exclusive can end up in heartache; especially if the other person doesn’t feel the same way. So instead of wondering if you can start referring to him as your boyfriend, just ask. That way you can be sure!

Trust your gut and never settle

This is especially true for those ladies who are feeling that time isn’t on their side. Settling for someone, or not listening to your intuition is not a great idea. Whilst you may be fine for a short while, entering into a relationship with someone that you are just not sure about can only end up in heartache for you both.

Trust your instincts and only enter into a relationship with someone that you are sure about.

Make a list

Not sure on where you are going wrong when it comes to dating? Want to pin down those all-important qualities you are seeking in a man? The easiest way to bring these all together is with a list.

Write down all those things that are important to you in a partner and in a relationship. Once you are armed with this list you can start to see if your dates have these attributes. After all, how can you expect to find the ideal man if you don’t know what you are looking for?

So there you have it, our top tips for dating in this modern world. We hope that you can use them to not only enjoy the dating experience but also maybe find yourself a meaningful relationship with the man of your dreams.

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.
