Speed Dating Tips

  • Be Relaxed

    Almost all of the people attending won’t have done speed dating before so don’t feel nervous.

  • Don't Panic

    If you think you’ll have nothing to say or will clam up, don't worry. The 4 minutes goes very quick and it’s amazing how the other person will chat making the conversation flow.

  • Be Yourself

    If you are true to who you are, this will enhance your personality and attract the right person. Don’t take it to heart if a date is not for you, you are not meant to be compatible with everyone. Just have fun regardless.

  • Don't Drink Too Much

    You don’t want a memory block the following morning and forget what your potential dates look like!

  • Find Common Ground

    During the 4 minutes try to find out if you have anything in common with the person you’re talking to, this will help you decide if you want a further date or not.

  • Follow Up

    Use the break and the time after the event to chat further with people you’ve been attracted to – this may help you decide who to choose.

  • Hello My Name Is...

    Don’t forget to put your name on your sheet before you hand it in – it’s amazing how so many people do!

  • Enjoy The Event

    It’s not every day that you get the opportunity to chat and flirt with up to 20 unattached good looking strangers all in one night!
