  It was good fun for attending my first speed dating.

Ollie Verified Attendee
  Good fun and it genuinely felt like we got a good five minutes to talk to each date rather than previous events where it came across as a bit rushed. The host Charlotte was great despite the man:woman ratio issues and having to sort the room accordingly but she did time each date to make sure it was the full duration. It was a shame about the ratio but two people not turning up on the night can't be helped.

Super happy to see your review, Helen. So happy you enjoyed x

Felicity Verified Attendee
  The location was noisy so difficult to hear. There were also four more women to men so not very evenly matched.

Original Dating reply

Hi Felicity, yes, unfortunately a few guys didn't turn up which caused the slight difference. Most people don't mind taking a breather but we do take your point.

Michael Verified Attendee
  Great event, just a bit puzzled why a speed dating event has a friends option. Also it'd be great if there were some of your themed events run outside of London.

Original Dating reply

Hi Micheal, we offer the friend option as some people get well on but are not attracted to each other. We'll be expanding our themed events so watch this space.

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 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.
