QUIZ DATING EVENTS

Speed dating mixed with a pub quiz

Quiz Dating is a brand new concept in dating events and is exclusive to Original Dating - we invented it!

Quiz Dating is a speed dating event and a quiz all rolled into one. Confused? You shouldn't be, it's really very simple, lots of fun and a great way to meet new people without the pressure of one-on-one speed dating.

What's the format for Quiz Dating?

First of all, ladies, you're divided into teams of around 3-4 girls per team. You are then seated and remain at the same table for the duration of the quiz. Gents, you are also divided into groups of 3-5 and your group is allocated a ladies team to join for the first round of the quiz (normally about five questions) where you will work as a team to answer the questions.

The quiz begins and the first few questions are called just like a normal quiz night. As you ponder the answers you get to chat with and get to know your new team mates as a group. 

At the end of the first round the guys teams then move on to the next quiz team in order and the quiz continues like this for 4-6 rounds until all the guys teams have met all the girls teams.

Now, as this is an Original Dating quiz you get to use our unique online matching system after the event so you will need to make a note of the people you liked after each round.

The winning ladies team will then be awarded their prize and get to share it with the male team they think helped them the most!

How many people take part?

Normally about 30-40 people. It's an equal male/female split.

How long do the events last?

Quiz dating events last approximately two hours. After the event, you will have met loads of new people so most people stay on afterwards and get to know everyone better.

Is there online matching?

Naturally! You need to keep note of the people you like on your scorecard and our system will give you the email address of any mutual matches the day after the event.

What type of questions will you ask?

Rounds will consist of a mixture of question types including general knowledge, sports, history, current affairs and pot luck.

If the guys are moving teams surely, there will be some cheating?
No chance! There's no chance of cheating as your answer papers are collected after each round of questions and before the guys move tables.

How long does each round take?

Each 5 question round will take around 20 minutes. Plenty of time to chat and get to know your each quiz, team!

What happens after the event?

This is the time for you to compile your ticks and make up your mind about the people you have met during the evening. Most people tend to stay at the venue, have a couple more drinks and continue chatting after the event has finished. The following day you simply log in to our website, enter your ticks and view your matches!

Can I call my team 'quiz on your face'

Yes, you can. If you must.

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.
