Speed Dating

We've re-invented speed dating by getting rid of all the boring parts and only keeping the best bits. Gone are the name tags, the 'interview style' pens and papers and the pressure of having to mark your date as a 'yes' or a 'no' right there on the spot. Instead, at our speed dating events you can just relax and focus on getting to know each of your dates and at the end of the night in your own time, you can easily and discretely select who you would like to see again through our matching platform Encounter Match. 


Speed dating is all about having a fun night out and meeting new people, face to face and going on a series of mini-dates and as everyone’s single and up for meeting new people the success rate is very high with 85% of our speed daters receiving matches.

How does a speed dating event work?

On arrival at one of our speed dating events, you will be greeted by our friendly host who will sign you in. Make your way to the bar to collect your complimentary welcome drink and enjoy the shared food platters while we wait for the other guests to arrive. This is also a great opportunity to relax, settle into the venue and chat to some of your fellow speed daters.

 Once all guests have arrived, the host will ask everyone to be seated at their allocated table. You will have around 5-6 minutes to chat with each of your dates.

We only hold our speed dating events in private areas to ensure the privacy of our guests. 

Do many people come on their own?

Many of our guests come on their own and for quite a few it’s also their first time attending a speed dating event. Our friendly host will help you to feel comfortable and put you at ease and don’t be afraid to chat to other daters before the speed dating starts. Everyone is in the same boat, and most other people who arrive on their own will welcome you chatting to them too.
