Our first Dating Against Humanity

Thursday November 2, 2017

So Dating Against Humanity happened last night and it's safe to say as far as world first's go, it was a blinder! I don’t even know where to begin, so let's start at the start. I've been running events for 4 years now but never have I been so nervous about running an event as I was last night. Dating Against Humanity was my little brain child, so naturally as any parent would, I was anxious as if it was his first day of school or when he goes off to college. I use the term nervous, but I was just buzzing with all sorts of excitement and anticipation. So much so, I forgot to even put the cards on the table. Anyway enough of the overly proud dad routine, let's talk about last night and get down to the nitty gritty! 

Dating Against Humanity was a sold out event and it didn't take long for laughter and that other sort of 'I shouldn't be laughing at this but I am' laughter to fill the air. The night on a whole was a huge success and the immediate feedback on the night was hugely positive. We also had some lovely emails this morning with glowing reviews.

What I found so great about last night was not only how much fun it was but the fact that you found out more about someone by playing cards against humanity than you would've from sitting them down and grilling them. I don’t think anyone even really mentioned what people did for a living and at the end of the day that’s not what's important but how people are socially compatible. In short it was just a fantastic night, a hugely sociable evening and a great atmosphere! 

It's safe to say Dating Against Humanity is the future! This is going to revolutionise dating events and change the way we meet new people forever. If you missed last night, don’t worry, there's going to be plenty more Dating Against Humanity events!

ORIGINAL DATING IN THE PRESS

HOW IT WORKS

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.
