Speed dating is a great way to meet a variety of single people in the same evening. These people are usually from the same city, and grouped in a similar age to you. Traditionally the venue is a bar, however online speed dating is becoming popular, where you meet people through short video calls.
The venue is usually in a bar or restaurant, where there will be lots of small tables laid out, with about 1m gap between them. Typically guys then get up and move to the next table, while girls stay where they are. This continues until the event is over.
Online speed dating works in a similar way to in-person speed dating. The main difference is that the dates happen over video. Online dating events can be much larger, as there are no limitations on space. You may get people at a single event. The software automatically matches you with each date, depending on your preferences and dating age range you selected. Many people have told us that they are tired of traditional online dating apps such as Tinder, Match, Hinge and Bumble.
They waste time swiping and messaging, when it ultimately le nowhere. This process can be both time consuming and emotionally draining. With traditional apps, the swiping process can lead to heightened expectations which usually then fall short. Often the chat fizzles out or, for various reasons, there is no chemistry in real life. Research shows that this approach le to a much higher success rate for in-person dates, as the initial video dates answer many initial questions and concerns in advance.
What you wear is therefore very important, even for online dates - dress to impress. For in-person events, a lot of single professionals come straight from work so are in smart suits and dresses. Note: For online events, only really the top half of your body can be seen - so wear whatever you like on the bottom half! A nice dress and heels are a great option, but also make sure you are comfortable. What I suggest is writing a little note next to each date, particularly if you liked them.
This can be done on the scorecard they give you for in-person events, or just a sheet of paper for online events. Include a couple of key details about your date so that you can remember them. We generally make a judgment of others in the first few seconds of meeting them. Make a great impression with positive, open body language. Smile and sit up straight.
Maintain good posture. People enjoy good news and happy vibes. Explaining how terrible your dating experiences were in the past is not going to help you get matches. Everyone is in the same boat, they all want to meet new people, so relax and smile. This may seem obvious, but smiling really does help improve your chances of a match. By smiling and laughing, you give off positive energy and attract others towards you.
Dating nights are fun, so always go with an open mind and a big smile. But when the event starts, those nerves quickly disappear. The MC is also usually pretty funny, and helps to reduce nerves and ensure everyone has a good time. Speed dating is exciting, but what do you ask your dates? With only a short period of time to ask questions, you need to make them count.
The best topics to talk about are those which are leading - give your dates a chance to open up rather than give a short yes or no response. Find out what interests you share and keep the conversation light hearted. Your or their ex - there can be many different reasons they broke up with their ex, some of which may be difficult to talk about, especially in 5 minutes! Keep to lighter topics. Religion and politics - these topics are too intense for a first date, save it for the next date when you have more time.
If you are attending an event on your own, arrive 15 minutes early to meet other people at the bar before the event. There are usually a handful of people who do the same and are very open to chatting before the event. Here is our complete guide for speed dating, both in-person and online.
