So what's new? 

Original Dating saw another world first in dating events with the launch of Dating Against Humanity earlier this year, which has already been a massive success. This sell out event has exceeded all expectations and is already one of our most popular events. But Original Dating won't stop there, oh no, we have so much more where that came from. We've got new parties with new icebreakers and new group speed dating events! Expect big things next year, bringing you not only great dating events but great nights out too. 

Original Dating will also be transitioning into the world of online vlogging, so expect a lot of new video content coming your way. We will have tons of interesting guests telling us their dating stories, also news on events past, present and future. With video's dominating the social media landscape these days, we would be idiots not to bring you everything and anything dating related in easy to watch videos. Without giving too much away, expect a lot of laughs, tips, experiences and even competitions. 

Next year is going to be the year of Original Dating and whoever's with us is going to be the ones who benefit! So follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube to reap the rewards.

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.
