Dating in the 21st Century
Did you know that the advent of speed dating celebrates its twentieth anniversary this year? The first ever speed dating event was held in Beverly Hills in the United States in 1998. It originated as a formal matchmaking process to help Jewish singles meet and marry. It has been enormously popular in the USA, Britain and around the world is now one of the most popular forms of dating.

Advantages of Speed Dating:
One of speed dating's biggest advantages is that it encourages singles to meet a large number of new people. You will meet face-to-face with like-minded people. And the good news is that everyone is there to meet someone. Studies have shown that it is more successful than online dating. And it is time efficient: quick rotation means you aren't stuck with someone boring. Best of all is that you don't have to introduce yourself in a crowded bar.

How Speed Dating in Nottingham Works
When you arrive at the stunning speed dating venue, Pitcher and Piano in Nottingham, you will be greeted by the friendly professional hosts. They will settle you in by briefly explaining the format of the evening and confirm how many people you will be dating at the speed dating in Nottingham.

What Happens at a Speed Dating in Nottingham Event
At a speed dating in Nottingham event, you will have four minutes to chat to each date. Four minutes is long enough to see if you hit it off with the person you are talking to and whether you would like to see them again. At the end of each date, you have a brief few moments to make some notes on the person you have just dated. Don't worry, you'll have time for comfort breaks and to replenish your drinks.

Speed Dating Guarantee
Luckily, since you will be meeting many amazing other singles at the speed dating event, you can tick as many as you like. However, if you don't find anyone suitable and mark them all as a big "No!", the speed dating organisers will offer you a free event as part of their guarantee to find that perfect someone for you. For an initial outlay of 20 quid, that seems very good value.
