Most speed daters are professionals who want to meet more people. They’re generally people who just aren’t meeting people through their work or immediate circle of friends. Tend to want to meet someone the more natural good old- fashioned face to face way, instead of wasting time on dating websites and mobile apps 😉
It depends on the event. All of our events are arranged into specific age groups. Check our events page for all of our events and their age bands
The age range is a guideline only, if you are under or above by 1 or 2years you are still welcome to attend. However, if you are, or appear to be, significantly outside of the age range we would recommend you wait for another event that your age fits into. This will increase your chances of getting a match.
Depending on the venue, we aim to have up to 10 to 20 men and 10 to 20 women at each event, though this may vary.
Yes, 4 minutes can be a long time with someone you do not ‘connect’ with. However, it is long enough to know whether you would like to invest a few hours getting to know each other on a further date.
Smart casual is best, something you feel comfortable and confident in – think what you would wear to go on a mid-week date.
Yes, the events take place in rooms which have been specifically hired for the event

The more the merrier but they will need to have registered for the event as well.
You will be contacted within 24 to 48 hours of the event to inform you of your matches via email.
We have to manage numbers carefully to ensure equal numbers of men and women at our events. However we are often able to take additional bookings that do not affect the balance of numbers. Please phone contact us to check.
For each event you will be taken to our secure server to pay by credit/debit card online. You will then receive an email confirming your money has been paid and details of the event.
This depends on the number of attending people. On average it lasts between 2 to 3 hours including breaks.
You just need to be single and over 18 years old. Then register for events that suit your age band and sexual orientation.
Of course you can come along to as many events as you like in order to increase your chance of meeting the one!!
On average between 40 to 60% of people attend on their own. The environment is so friendly and comfortable you won’t feel uneasy at all.
Unfortunately you cannot receive a refund. However if you cancel at least 7 days before the event we will occasionally allow you to swap to another event instead. Just get in touch with us and we will see what we can do.
You will be greeted by your host and given a score care, name tag, pan and a brief intro to how the event will work. You can then grab a drink whilst everyone arrives. Dating begine, females remain seated at their numbered table and men move around every 4 minutes when the bell goes. After each date you complete the score card including a comment to remind you of who your date was with. At the end we collect score sheet and email your matches in next few days. Then it is up to you if you get in touch with your matches or not.
