Sure, there's always bound to be an element of the awks about it all, but hey, if you are game, why not try one of these speed dating alternatives...
Hosted by Shoreditch's The Book Club, 'Last Night A Speed Date Saved My Life' has become one of London't most popular nights for singles. Well, for one it's held in a pretty trendy place so you don't feel like a total speed date doofus, and secondly, the light-hearted atmosphere of the whole evening makes it feel more like a regular night down the pub rather than a cringe-worthy 1:1 debacle. Well, could be that a literary speed date is the one for you. Now before you freak out, listen to the science behind this speed date idea.
Each date lasts around 3 minutes before the guys rotate around to a new date. Once the event ends your night isn't over as everyone gets compliemtnary access to the club to party the night away until the early hours! The ticket holder voluntarily assumes all risks and danger incidental to the event for which the ticket is issued, whether occurring prior, during or after the event.
The ticket holder voluntarily agrees that the management, venue, event participants, Design My Night (WFL Media Ltd) and all of their respective agents, officers, directors, owners and employers are expressly released by the ticket holder from any claims arising from such causes. Tickets are issued subject to the rules and regulations of the venue. Please check your tickets, as mistakes cannot always be rectified. Occasionally, events are cancelled or postponed by the promoter, team, performer or venue for a variety of reasons.
Some of the blocks will contain great ice-breaking questions and hilarious DARES to make the evening a little more interesting. Or throw them at each other’s heads, it’s not good when we need to pack them up at the end of the night.
All of our events are based on improving your offline communication skills so we don’t have name tags – we expect you to ask the person’s name and actually remember it (heaven forbid).
There will be enough time to grab a cocktail or two before the event begins at 8pm. ) but if by chance there isn't anyone who floats your boat you can attend another event for free.
It is your responsibility to ascertain the date and time of any rearranged event. The venue reserves the right to refuse admission and may on occasion have to conduct security searches to ensure the safety of the patrons. Every effort to admit latecomers will be made at a suitable break in the event, but admission cannot always be guaranteed. We regret that tickets cannot be exchanged or refunded after purchase. Tickets are sold subject to the venue or promoter's right to alter or vary the programme due to events or circumstances beyond its control without being obliged to refund monies or exchange tickets. If this ticket is re-sold or transferred for profit or commercial gain by anyone other than the promoter, venue management, Design My Night or one of their authorised sub-agents, it will become voidable and the holder may be refused entry to or ejected from the venue.
Yeah, traditionally they aren't the most joyous of experiences. Essentially, more people to feel horribly awkward with. For a speed date that takes awkward small talk completely out of the equation, Shhh Dating events ask guests to rely on the power of non-verbal communication. If you are a bit of a closet bike fiend, then why not entertain the idea of a cycle speed date? Demand is high for this event, so get in early to avoid disappointment. You basically take along the novel you're reading to your session, then wax lyrical with your partner about all things bookish. If you are sick to death of speed dating over burgers, then this meat/dairy-free evening is going to be right up your street. Like the silent speed date we mentioned above, tantric speed dating relies more on your non-verbal communication, requiring singles to connect using eye contact. Meet new people through creative play at one of Play Date London's crafty evenings.
Every month we run events in central London, including speed dating for different age brackets and our popular Christmas and Valentine's parties.
