  really fun event, I was nervous before but once I got there it was all fine. I would have been nice to have been able to connect with some of the women afterwards as we all chatted together and had a shared experience.

  It was my first speed dating event, something I have wanted to do since I first heard of the concept. I had pictured it being quite awkward possibly, but last night was lighthearted, fun, respectful and not at all awkward. I had a lovely time and made a nice new woman friend. Thank you Tom for being a great host, putting us all at ease - although mostly people seemed to just be at ease!!

  It was my first taste of speed dating. Overall I enjoyed the experience and, even though I don’t think I’ve found my Mr Right, it was an enjoyable, fun night out in the company of a nice bunch of people. I’m really not a fan of online dating, and judging someone’s compatibility from a few photos always seems harsh to me! So speed dating seems to make far more sense and I will no doubt do it again sometime! Thank you to the organisers.

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.
