About the event

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

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!

  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.

Daniel Verified Attendee
  Good, fun event with a sociable host, executed really well and utilising the tech. Rooms ended a bit abruptly due to no visible display of time, although the host's messages did help. Definitely worth a try and a safe, viable option for meeting new people in the current situation.

  Variety of people to meet. Might be nice to create an atmosphere with some gentle music in the background? Silences in conversations are a bit more awkward.

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!

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.
