About the event

Join us for this online only, virtual speed dating event designed for people living in London.

You’ll meet 10-15 people for short dates lasting just four minutes - all from the comfort of home.

Our virtual speed dating events mirror the format of our real-life events. Upon signing into the event, you’ll meet our host who will explain the format to the group. You’ll then be transported to virtual tables for two which offer a one on one private chat environment for your first four-minute date.

You can join the event from any device that features a camera and a microphone and most phones and laptops are perfect for the job.
At the end of each date, the male participants will be moved to the next virtual table and the next date begins. The whole session will last approximately one hour.

After the event, simply head to our website and view a list of everyone you met at the event. Select who’s a yes, a friend or a no and our system will crunch the matches.

The following day your matches will be published, and you’ll be able to message your matches via our site and arrange your next virtual meet or in the not too distant future a real life date.

Our virtual speed dating events are guaranteed. If you don’t meet anyone you want to see again, your next virtual event is free.

Book now!

  I would like to attend another virtual speed Dating as I would like to give it another go as tonight there was suppose to be more woman turning up but it didn't go according to plan but overall was enjoyable

  Arthur was a great host.

Everyone loves Arthur, he's the best in the speed dating business for sure.

Patrick Verified Attendee
  The chats I had were enjoyable, so I'm glad I did the event, but there was a lot of waiting in between, felt like every other date, so I struggled to get into things and it tended to break up flow. I know in the face-to-face events Original Dating did ensure that there was 50:50 gender split, so I'm unsure why this is not the case now. I understand it cannot always be possible, but I think that should still be the goal. Nevertheless, this was my first virtual event and it has promising potential. Keep it up!

Original Dating reply

Patrick, thanks for your frank feedback. The truth is that we rely on everyone that purchases a ticket actually showing up on the night. We'd love every event to be *amazing* but sadly it doesn't always happen. We offer a guarantee so if you didn't meet anyone you want to see again, please come back free of charge. Virtual speed dating is growing in popularity now and it's something we will continue to offer when pandemic restrictions lift.

  Relaxed but well organised. Genuinely surprised at how much I enjoyed it. Think the chat with the host before and after the dating worked, made it feel more sociable.

Thanks Alex, totally understand but speed dating is all about lots of brief introductions - hopefully you'll get some good matches.

  Really nice mix of people. Much less daunting than I feared it might be. The closest thing to chatting to people at a party that's legal right now!

ORIGINAL DATING IN THE PRESS

HOW IT WORKS

The beauty of Speed Dating Derby 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 Derby 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 Derby 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.
