How does speed dating work?

Speed dating is the best way to meet new people in your area and it's really quite simple. You meet up to 20 other singles in one fun night in a series of short 4 minute dates. It's social and all done offline so you actually meet people. There's plenty of time to grab a drink and mingle before, during and after the event making it a fantastic night out. We also host our events at the best bars in town making it the ideal setting to find love.

After the event you have full access to our top of the range matching system, simply tick who you would like to meet again and let us do the rest. At the end of the following day you will be notified of your matches and be seeing each other again in no time.
