About the event

***22 GIRLS BOOKED - BOOK NOW***

It’s important to find that someone who makes you laugh and who understands your sense of humour, no matter how dark or twisted it might be.

Introducing Dating Against Humanity. This is another first from Original Dating, combining the hilarious card game Cards Against Humanity with our unique take on speed dating.

A group of 30-40 people will take part with a 50:50 male/female ratio attending. Our format means you'll meet everyone of the opposite sex.

You’ll meet people in groups of 6-8 people, half girls and half guys. You’ll play a few rounds of this hilarious and slightly dark card game with each group, getting to know everyone as you play.

The rules are very simple and that’s what makes it such fun. At the start of each game a black card is drawn. Black cards are either questions or fill in the blank phrases. The white cards are the answers. Each player has a selection of white cards. The winner is the member of the group that forms the funniest, crudest or most ridiculous answer to the initial question. It’s a blast and a great icebreaker.

The next day you’ll login to our website where a list of everyone you met will appear. Simply tick YES to all the people you want to see again and our system will tell you who you mutually matched with. You’ll be able to message your matches and maybe arrange a rematch!

Book now – this event is super popular!

We'll take that. Thanks David!

Francesca Verified Attendee
  The location was very nice, the host too, and the whole night didn't feel like speed dating at all! It just felt like a bunch of friendly people having fun. Potentially meeting a date is just an extra bonus. Will defo go again :) Giving 4 starts only because of the price, wish it were a bit cheaper/there were maybe student discounts or something like that.

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.
