Speed Dating in Chelmsford, Essex

Ah, the great city of Chelmsford. 110, 000 folk live in this, the principal city of Essex and we think it’s about time the professional singles of this town were given the chance to meet each other in one of the most fun ways available.

That’s right folks, Original Dating speed dating has arrived in Chelmsford.

Take up to forty singles equally matched guys to girls. Add our unique matching app – Mixeo – and one of the best bars in the area and voila, you have the most fun, flirtatious and fastest way to meet someone in Chelmsford.

Who are you?
We’re Original Dating, one of the most trusted, popular and experienced singles events companies in London. We’ve been running singles nights since 2003 and even celebrated the first marriage in the UK of a couple who met at one of our events back in 2004.

So far, London has had all the fun, but we think it’s time to spread our wings and bring our unique approach to dating to Chelmsford.

Speed dating works how exactly?
Meet everyone one in the room for dates that last approximately four minutes. Once the four minutes are up, guys move on to the next date. It’s the perfect length of time to work out if you’d like to chat to that person again, but not too long if they’re not quite your type.
There’s a break at half time to recharge your glasses and chat less formally.

So how do I match with someone?
You’ll make some notes on who you meet and enter this into our website our our special Mixeo app after the event.

It’s a simple yes, no or maybe.

You have until 5 pm the next day to enter your matches at which point we’ll let everyone know who reciprocated.

If someone you matched said yes to you, congratulations, you can message each other through the website or app. The rest is up to you. If one of you said maybe and one said yes, or you both said maybe, you can still message each other but as friends. If anyone says no then no contact is made.

Once the formal speed dating is over, most people stick around at the bar, have a few drinks and catch up with people they met during the dating session. It’s a genuinely fun and relaxed night and a great way to not only meet potential dates but make new friends and enjoy an evening with a difference.

Let’s do it!
Our forthcoming events are listed above but if you'd like regular updates simply sign up to our newsletter (above) and we’ll make sure you’re one of the first to know. 

Original Dating – Fun, flirtatious and the fastest way to meet someone in Chelmsford.

ORIGINAL DATING IN THE PRESS

HOW IT WORKS

The beauty of Speed Dating Chelmsford 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 Chelmsford 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 girl.

Meet & Mingle

A Chelmsford 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.
