Arrival

It’s a good idea to arrive early for any of our events, not just Chinese speed dating. Our events begin at 7.30pm so give yourself time to get to the venue ahead of the start.

The event format

You’ll be allocated a seat and your first date will begin. You’ll have four minutes or so to meet your first date and decide if you like them and want to see them again. It might sound a little daunting but speed daters are pretty nice people to meet and you’ll soon get used to it. Our host will shortly signal the end of the first date. At this point guys move on to the next girl and the next date begins. You’ll probably meet around 12-20 people at this event so there’s a good chance you’ll meet someone you want to see again.

The event works like this until everyone has met each other. Most times we’ll have a break half way through. Speed Dating can be quite thirsty work!

After the event

Afterwards you might like to stay on and chat to the other daters. Most people do and it's a good way to get to know everyone a little better.

ORIGINAL DATING IN THE PRESS

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 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. 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!

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.
