What is Speed Dating?

Speed Dating is an event for single people to meet face-to-face with like-minded people, to spark conversations with and possible romance. If you’re looking for that special someone or just fancy a fun night out meeting new people, speed dating is what you’ve been looking for!

Upon arrival at one of our Speed Dating events, you will be greeted by our friendly hosts who will check you in. Your host will give a welcome speech to let you know what to expect throughout the evening. Once the dating part begins, the ladies will be seated at their allocated table. The men will start with the corresponding number. After four minutes, the bell will be rung; and all the girls will stay seated and all the guys will move round. Between each date we allow a little time for you to make your notes on your dates using your Speeding Ticket. The events will continue (with a fifteen to twenty minute half time break) until you have met everyone there.

At Speed Dating, everyone is there to meet other people - just like you. You have just enough time with each person to decide whether or not you like them - you only get given each other's contact information if you both agree and consent to this.

Who goes Speed Dating?

Everyone has varied backgrounds and interests who may rarely get the opportunity to meet many new single people in one go. Speed Dating is ideal for those who lead busy lives, that don't always have time to meet new people and who want to improve their chances of meeting the right person.

What if I like another speed dater?

You will hopefully like lots of other people at one of our Speed Dating evenings! Use your Speeding Ticket to make notes at the end of each date ticking the people you like and potentially want to see again. The next day you will receive an email prompting you to go to the website and tick the people you liked.

How do I get in touch with them?

After you have entered your ticks, you will be sent an email or a text alert message immediately whenever someone matches with you, with their contact details (your information will only be given if you both have 'ticked' yes to each other). Via the website, you will also be able to see how many people have entered their choices, and see details of anyone that you match with.

Do many people come on their own?

Yes many do, and we make a point of ensuring that the hosts make everybody feel comfortable and put you at ease. Don't be afraid to chat to other daters before the dating starts. Everyone is in the same boat, and most other people who arrive on their own will welcome you chatting to them too.

Whether you come with friends or on your own we offer a chance to meet face-to-face with like- minded single people to spark conversations. So, if you’re looking for that special someone or just fancy a fun night out meeting new people, speed dating is what you’ve been looking for!
