About the event

Saturday nights are made for speed dating in The West End. You’ll meet around 15-20 people during this event, each one for just four minutes. The perfect length of time to decide if you’d like to see someone again and not too long if you don’t. It’s a simple and exciting way to meet a lot of people in one fun night.

The next day you'll find out who you mutually matched with via our website. You'll get in touch again via our private messaging system and you'll be meeting again for real dates in no time.

Our venue, Perini & Perini is seconds from Oxford Circus Station. It’s a great spot if you want to make a night of it as the bars and clubs of Soho are close at hand.

Expect to meet a fun crowd at this event. We think you’ll be amazed how sociable Londoners can be and be left wondering why you never tried speed dating sooner.

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.
