  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.

  My first and it wasn't that bad. Although few people were not that interested maybe because they already had some prior expectations set of a certain person. But the host Tom was wonderful. He did the best he could do standing for 2 hours and checking in between if everything is okay. The venue was also nice. These kinds of events should be held in a restaurant with a small bar rather than loud pubs as it can get too noisy. Nevertheless, it was fun. I would like to attend more of these in near future.

  Loved meeting new people and trying speed dating out for the very first time. Thank you so much for incorporating breaks. Al was phenomenal!! Addition of finger foods would also be excellent. Kindly consider a way to arrange tables so that there’s more privacy / you can’t hear the next table’s conversation. Find a way to attract black men. All in all fantastic event!

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.
