It's the 1st of December so I think it's safe to say it's finally Christmas time and what better way to start the festive period than a Christmas Quiz! That's right ladies and gentlemen, Quiz Dating is back on the 6th December and it's gonna packed with Christmas themed questions to get us in the mood. Of course we'll also be able to get to know our fellow singles while enjoying all this merriment.  

Quiz Dating is a unique concept from Original Dating which has proved very popular. Unlike our traditional speed dating events, Quiz Dating takes a less formal approach and see's the guys and girls put together in small groups of between 4 and 6, which forms our teams. Each team will answer a round of questions together before moving onto the next team for the next round of questions. You still have a lot of time during the rounds to chat and flirt, it's really the best of both worlds.  

Quiz Dating is a lot of fun, having to work together to solve those brain teasers while having a good old fashioned flirt and a giggle. This unique concept is so popular because it takes the pressure of having to have lots of short dates and instead means you can focus on a joint goal and enjoy each other's company in the process.  

Quiz Dating in all its festive glory is back on the 6th December, and it's hard to tell whether it's a better quiz or dating event! If you love Christmas or even just a good old fashioned pub quiz then this really is the event for you, don't miss out as this event will sell out fast.

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.
