TO: Original Dating
FROM: Alexandra
SUBJECT: Dating success!

Hi there,

I just wanted to send a message to say a big thank you! Further to a speed dating event on the 10th March at St Pauls, I met my now boyfriend and we're currently planning on moving in together in December this year.

Thanks again!



We'd like to wish Alexandra and her boyfriend every happiness in their new home and all the very best for their future life together. We've said it before but it's worth repeating. Speed dating works! We bring hundred if not thousands of people together every single year. If you're looking for the best way to get out there and meet people why not check out one of our events. We have dozens coming up soon and who knows, it might just be you emailing us with your success story.

Until next time,






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.
