Speed Dating: Is It For Me?

Call us biased, but yes! In fact, we are nodding such a big, fat, resounding yes that our heads are in danger of falling off. You see, the beauty of speed dating is that there’s no time wasting involved. We know that you are pressed, and we know that you don’t want to waste entire evenings dating a lost cause.


As you know, first impressions count – big time. You can usually tell within minutes of meeting someone whether or not you could happily fall for them and, in the same way, you know if they would get the thumbs down.

With speed dating, if you didn’t like your last ‘date’, then there’s no need to worry, simply move on to the next, content in the knowledge that you’ve only wasted minutes, and keep searching for your dream partner. Another bonus of speed events is that they take much of the awkwardness and the sting out of dating.


We are also one of the only companies in the UK to start catering to gay, lesbian and bi-curious communities. If you are one of the many minority groups looking for a love interest, then simply fill in our ‘Register your interest’ form and get ready to meet your match.

With the days of the 9-5 job long gone, our lives are becoming more hectic than ever. When we’re not chained to our desks or glued to our iPhones, we’re firing off emails from our laptops, networking with other companies, or working from home, pizza takeout in one hand, Blackberry (or red wine) in the other. And if you’re one of the lucky ones who does manage to escape work early, then we can almost guarantee that you spend the rest of your life in the gym. The weekdays of lounging around a cosy pub with your friends and knocking back pints have all but faded and, with it, our chances of meeting someone new, we’re right, aren’t we?

You see, socialising no longer seems to take pride of place. We’ve become less about the work / life balance, and all about the boasting of long, killer hours in the office. So, where does that leave you? How do you meet new people, make new friends? And for singletons living life in the fast lane, just where do you find the time to meet that special someone?  Thankfully, that’s where the team at MySpeedDate come in.
