Quiz Dating is back!

Tuesday October 24, 2017

Quiz dating is back by popular demand! Original Dating is bringing back our much loved Quiz Dating as part of our new programme of dating events. Next month sees a whole range of new and past loved dating events, offering the singles of London more fun and innovative ways to meet new people. 

So why bring back Quiz dating? 

Well for starters it's just great fun! Who doesn’t love a pub quiz? And that's exactly what Quiz Dating is, we combine the classic pub quiz with dating and our unique matching system, Mixeo.  There will be 5 rounds of general knowledge questions for you to wrap your heads around and show off you quiz skills, while at the same time you will have the chance to meet your fellow quizzers. This creates a fun and informal atmosphere in which to chat and flirt, rather than the more classic 1-on-1 speed dating format. 

So how does it work? 

The ladies will be split up into five groups of 3 or 4 and the guys will be divided equally amongst those groups. For each round of questions you will have time to get to know your team and work together to answer those set of questions. As with all our events you will be able to make a note of everyone's name and Mixeo number to use on our matching system the following day. After each round of questions the guys will move to a new team of girls and lend their assistance for the next round of questions. The team who answer the most correct answers win and can share out their bottle of bubbly with those who they think helped them the most. 

What's not to love! There's some healthy competition, challenging questions and a lot of flirting. Quiz dating is one of the most fun and exciting ways to meet new people and the cherry on top....there's a bottle of bubbly to be won!

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!

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.
