About the event

Specifically designed for people of Chinese descent living, working or visiting London, this night promises to be one of the best of the year. Meet up to 20 like-minded singles for dates that last approximately 4 minutes at this fun Central London venue.

Speed dating is all about short introductions to lots of people. You’ll meet each person for about four minutes. The perfect length of time to decide if you’d like to see them again and not too long if you don’t.

The next day you'll find out who you mutually matched with either on our website.

Get in touch again via our private messaging system and you'll be meeting for real dates in no time. No other speed dating company has this unique tech and it makes a big difference to the success of our events.

  Like all things in life, you get out what you put in. I went with the objective of having fun and I did. I met a lot of nice, friendly people & had a good laugh. It was a very positive first speed dating experience and I'd definitely do it again.

  Five stars for the host and location. Can be more people. Can you make it not only 'Chinese' but a Chinese, Korean, Japanese event to make it more inclusive, and attract singles from Japan and Korea as well? We also are looking for someone special but have to attend more generic events. :)

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.
