HI David, thanks for the lovely feedback.

Etan Verified Attendee
  Nice crowd! I'd still prefer at least 1 more minute per date, but otherwise I thought it was good! I thought the venue was great because a) it was private and b) we were able to stay and have drinks with each other for a long time after the speed dating finished. I think this was my favourite venue of all the Original Dating venues I've been to.

  Everyone was very nice and friendly and the event felt relaxed. It was a pleasant evening all-round. I would certainly book up to come to another evening.

Hi Darryl, amazing feedback many thanks!

Allan Verified Attendee
  Event was okay. Minor irritations were that men took too long to move round, and that with the low ceilings in the venue, the noise of people talking was very loud !!

Re’an Verified Attendee
  It’s was a new experience but I think 4mins isn’t enough time  
Posted: 08/01/2020

Original Dating reply

Hey Re'an - thanks for feeding back. Four minutes does fly by when you're enjoying yourself. Don't forget, you can speak to people afterwards too.

Darren Verified Attendee
  Bit loud good night

Original Dating reply

Hey Darion, thanks so much for your feedback, we'll raise this with the host for next time - it's important that everyone can hear each other!

Sandy Verified Attendee
  Well planned. 4 minutes is a little bit too little time.  
Posted: 08/01/2020

Original Dating reply

Hi Sandy, thanks for your review. Most people find the 4 minutes just enough about enough to work out if they want to see that person again.

Nita Verified Attendee
  My expectations weren’t very high. But out of 16 men, I liked nine... which was very positive.

Original Dating reply

Hey Nita, 9 out of 16 - that's a pretty awesome hit rate. Thanks for reviewing us!

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.
