Hot Dates in the Big Smoke
Do you have a date yet for St Valentine's Day on 14th February? Do you have a fear of missing out (FOMO)? Never fear - Speed Dating is here and the really good news is that it has a higher success rate than online dating. Speed Dating London now has two great venues and the new dates for 2018 have been announced.

Venue for Speed Dating London (from Amber website)
So here's how speed dating in London works: When you arrive at the venue, the lovely professional hosts will greet you and they will help you settle in by briefly explaining the format of the Speed Dating evening. The event will commence with the speed dating taking place for the remainder of the evening. You will normally get between twelve and fifteen dates but it can vary depending on the venue and the night.
Occasionally you might get twenty dates. Any more and you would probably be tired and confused I think. If you like someone at the event, you just enter a tick on your "Speeding Ticket" (how funny is that?) corresponding to the person you like to indicate you may want to see that person again. The following day you can either sign in to the web site and enter your choices directly, or call the office and one of the team will enter your ticks for you to match you up with others from the Speed Dating in London. I hope you meet "The One" but if you don't it's still a fun night out where you can meet lots of like-minded people.
