About Us

DateinaDash was founded in 2011 by Rob after he experienced a poorly ran Speed Dating event in Clapham (we’ll mention no names...) He quickly realised there was a demand for high quality, well organised Speed Dating events in London.

Since we launched 13 years ago, we have organised more than 4,000 events with over 70,000 people walking through our doors: and with four weddings under our belt and thousands of successful relationships over the years we’d say that it’s been quite successful!

We offer a wide range of singles events including traditional Speed Dating alongside larger singles parties & quirky events like Naked Dating. We are always seeking out the latest dating trends and coming up with original and fun ways to meet other singles

Unlike a lot of dating companies in the market. DateinaDash is still managed by one person, as a full-time job and this means all our customers receive a highly personal service. Rob works extremely hard to ensure every event is an enjoyable experience and genuinley cares about his customers.

In 2012 he resigned from his job as a Police Officer to focus on Date in a Dash full time. Outside of the office his hobbies include running Marathons, practising magic and (still) learning to ride his unicycle. Friendly and approachable, Rob will got he extra mile for his customers. .
