About the event

Brand New Event:

Specifically designed for Black men and women who live, work or are visiting London. This night promises a fun opportunity to connect with other likeminded singles.

Expect to meet 15-20 people for dates lasting four minutes. We've found this to be the perfect length of time to decide if you’d like to see someone again and - crucially - not too long if you don’t!

A super night of fun & friendly introductions over drinks. Attend on your own or with friends - it's a great night either way.

The next day you'll find out who you matched with via our website. Get in contact with matches via our messaging system and you'll be meeting again for real dates in no time.

Our venue, Yotel London City is moments from Farringdon Station. It’s a great spot if you want to make a night of it as the bars and clubs of Central London are close at hand.

  Let us go to the bar, and don’t sit women in pairs or force them to sit awkwardly before the event starts

  Enjoyable night but didn't get a read of the males taking part as it was a group conversation. Possibly smaller groups of 4 would be better.

  It was much more relaxed than a 1-2-1 environment which can be intense. Good fun, great host, great set up, the questions were hard. Perhaps less questions and more categories so each group can spend 2 rounds. The two second rounds were more relaxed and could carry on conversations that had started. Highly recommend. Good turnout and variety of participants :)

  It was more low key than some of the other events I have been to and I enjoyed myself a lot whilst I was there. I would probably go again if I am single in the future. The friend option is pointless. From a man's point of view no one wants to be in the friendzone when you are specifically looking to make romantic connections at an event like this.

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 a 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 for speed dating London. 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.
