Listen Up London, Theres No Such Thing As Imperfections!
May 20, 2016 AT 1:05AM GMT+0200 | 0 comments | leave a comment

If you work, live or socialise in London you’ll have no doubt read about, and if not seen for yourself, the recent tube station posters designed and created by the rather dopey online dating platform, Match.com as part of their most recent advertising campaign.

And if you keep an eye on the news, so too will you have heard about the rather awkward moment they were forced to take down all of the posters amidst back lash from London folk for their portrayal of red heads and freckles, deeming them ‘imperfections’. Members of the public spoke up about the posters calling them ‘offensive’ and even going so far to call their campaign a form of ‘bullying’ against those with red hair and freckles.

A spokesperson from Match.com rather frantically commented saying: “We believe freckles are beautiful. The intention of our ‘Love Your Imperfections’ campaign is to focus on the quirks and idiosyncrasies that people wrongly perceive to be imperfections – this can include freckles, a feature that is sometimes seen as an imperfection by people who have them. “We’re sorry if this ad has been interpreted in a different way and we apologise for any offence caused, this was not our intention.

“Our overall campaign is all about celebrating perceived physical and behavioural imperfections, from having freckles to being chubby, messy or clumsy.

“The adverts are designed to encourage everyone to be proud of their individuality, as the features that make us unique are often the ones that make us most attractive.”

Intrigued to get more feedback from real life London daters, Rob Ryall caught up with one of Dateinadash’s regular speed daters, Kat Pulman (who herself dons beautiful auburn hair and a scattering of freckles) who said that the recent adverts perpetuate stigma surrounding red hair and personal image.

‘For years I’ve been teased for having red hair and freckles, to the point now that I just smile and roll my eyes when I get called ‘ginger’ or ‘carrot top’, for example. It’s something I’ve grown up with but I’m not saying for a second that I should have had to. At the end of the day though, I know I’m having the last laugh and I really am not that deluded to believe my red hair or freckles are imperfections. If anything, my so called imperfections are what make me perfect’, she says. ‘Putting my own mind set aside, it just isn’t the case for everyone with red hair and freckles, and in truth it’s totally unacceptable for anyone to be put down and bullied about their appearance, be it in terms of hair colour, weight, height, ability or eye colour. These adverts from Match.com really don’t help to promote the idea that being a redhead or having freckles is something to be proud of, in fact they do the total opposite, regardless of the campaign’s intention and however innocent it should have been’, Kat concludes.

Reinforcing Kat’s message, the team here at Dateinadash can reassure the lovely singletons of London that this isn’t how we think either. We acknowledge that while the world of dating can be an exciting experience it can also be as equally daunting and it’s not uncommon for daters to feel self conscious and nervous about meeting new, singletons in the capital. Simply put, that’s why as London’s leading speed dating company, Dateinadash are disappointed in the way Match.com have tried to exploit these common feelings for financial gain.

As we’ve already mentioned, the idea that hair colour, body shape, skin tone and physical appearance as a whole can even be considered as an imperfection is ridiculous. Furthermore, such classifications can also do damage to a wide range of generations and their body confidence and positive self image which can have a long lasting effect across the years. What we say here at Dateinadash is to love yourself exactly as you are and embrace the world of dating as we truly believe there’s someone out there for everyone. It’s just a matter of meeting them.

With this in mind, why not pop along to one of our upcoming speed dating events in London and discover the opportunities available through Dateinadash? Just grab a ticket and we’ll see you there!


Foods That Will Drive You Wild
March 23, 2016 AT 1:03AM GMT+0200 | 0 comments | leave a comment

So we all know the saying, you are what you eat, because what you eat directly influences your body and what its capable of. And when you begin a new relationship, its more important than ever to make sure your food choices have a positive effect on your life. This is because the food you consume can have a direct impact on your sex life, affecting your energy and stress levels as well as your hormones and brain chemistry. So, the team here at Dateinadash have compiled a list of some of the top aphrodisiacs to get you in the mood and help you when you need it the most!

Bananas

Now we all can be the see the naughty side of a nice ripe banana with its phallic shape but they really are a feel good food, too! Containing bromelain, an enzyme which triggers testosterone production, a bananas vitamin B, magnesium and potassium contents elevate energy levels and enhance the male libido, which are great when you are looking to impress a new partner.

Chocolate

From its scrummy taste to its gorgeous aroma, chocolate is a firm favourite with many but dark chocolate especially has been shown to cause a significant spike in dopamine, which induces feelings of ecstasy and pleasure which nobody is going to say no to!

Known as the king of aphrodisiacs, chocolate contains a wealth of compounds including the feel good chemical, ananamide and phenyl ethylamine, the love chemical which brings on feelings of attraction, excitement and releases dopamine in the pleasure centres of the brain. Now when you say you LOVE chocolate, its clear to see why, so why not kick back, relax and enjoy the taste (and benefits) of those little silky tasty squares!

Avocado

Said to boost your immune system due to its high levels of folic acid, avocados boast a tasty rich flavour and a sensuous pear shape which clearly shows why it is associated with sexuality. The ancient Aztecs called avocados testicle trees due to the fact these delicious fruits hung in pears on tress and resemble gentlemens private parts! Some food nutritionists believe that avocados can help keep the spark alive because of its role in maintaining energy levels and a youthful vigour, which is always a nice thought, isnt it? Young, free and enjoying the company of your new love interest with a little help of this tasty fruit. Perfect, wed say!

Figs

Mentioned in the Bible (Adam and Eve supposedly wore fig leaves to cover their private areas), figs have long been thought of as an arousing stimulant. Steeped in history and thought of as one of the worlds oldest recorded fruits, figs were very popular with Egyptian queen, Cleopatra and have been associated with fertility and love ever since.

And if you look more closely at the fruit itself it could be seen to paradoxically symbolise both sexuality, with the ripe fruit and seeds representing fertility, and modesty with the fig leaf itself. But these little fruit are also full to the brim with potassium and are an antioxidant powerhouse which is just perfect when you are beginning to embark on a new relationship. Its a win, win situation wed say!

Oysters

Probably the food most associated with being an aphrodisiac, oysters have a reputation for increasing sexual desire and most people are aware of their impact when you try them. With huge zinc contents, oysters help increase libido and produce sperm, which is fantastic for those wanting a little help along the way. And for a romantic meal, why not try raw oysters and a glass of ice cold Champagne to get you in the mood for love!?

Honey

Sweet, sticky honey is a fantastic source of boron, a mineral that helps the body metabolize the female sex hormone, oestrogen with studies showing that this mineral could also enhance testosterone levels in the blood which is fantastic news for everyone. This hormone is responsible for helping both men and women reach orgasm and increasing peoples sex drive, and helps provide a natural energy boost to give you a spring in your step (and in the bedroom, too) if you are lucky!

Asparagus

Nicholas Culpepper, a 17th century English herbalist believed that little spears of asparagus stirred up lust in both men and women and this hasnt seemed to change much over the years. Soon to be brides were served three whole courses of the vegetable at their prenuptial dinners in 19th century France and it still holds high regards now in the 21st century when it comes to matters of the heart! But why does asparagus have such a reputation when it comes to natural aphrodisiacs?

Its clear to see when you look a little closer; asparagus is a fantastic natural source of fibre, potassium, vitamin B6, vitamins A and C, thiamine and folic acid, with the latter said to boost histamine production. Histamine has the ability to enhance levels of excitement and reach orgasm in both men and women which is great news for those wanting to get freaky between the sheets.

So, there you have it, the top seven foods thatll get you in the mood, no questions asked as per the team here at Dateinadash, Londons best speed dating hosts.

Well patiently wait for you to let us all know just how true the foods really are when it comes to matter of the heart, so its over you guys and girls of the city now!

Attack Of The Screens: Why Face To Face Interactions Are So Important
February 26, 2016 AT 1:55AM GMT+0200 | 0 comments | leave a comment
In bygone years the only viable way of meeting genuine, likeminded people was to get out of the house and interact with others. And, to be honest, it really wasn’t that long ago when you sit back and really think about it.

You see, the problem with today’s society is that everyone has become creatures of habit, wanting to cease the easiest options available to them, even if it is sacrifices actually mingling and chatting with people face to face. While many are glued to their phones, flicking from left to right on Tinder and other social media platforms, the real winners in life are those embracing the opportunities speed dating and singles parties in London offer. Because, trust us- there are plenty!

And while pausing the latest television obsession for all of a few hours and putting down your cup of cocoa as you lay snuggled up on the couch eyeing up potential suitors online might seem too much effort, get your back side off of the sofa, get your glad rags on and meet others face to face at one of our professionally organised singles events.

If you just take a minute to cast your mind way back to when the world began- real people were meeting up in real life and it actually worked for them, so why change a habit of a lifetime (quite literally!)

While some methods work for a collection of society, as London’s number 1 speed dating hosts, Date in a Dash, we’d like to think we’ve got it covered when it comes to finding love in the capital. We offer a huge range of highly successful singles events throughout London proving what we’ve said all along- that people like to meet real, likeminded, genuine and friendly singles in their local area to see for themselves if there are any sparks, if there’s a connection worth pursuing or a burning desire to see each other again.

While being able to sit in your PJ’s chatting away to love interests via online dating sounds ideal- (no effort required on the getting yourself ready to potentially meet your perfect match as you don’t need to lift a finger!), a huge drawback is the fact you miss out on getting ready for an evening of full.

Furthermore, you miss out on the opportunity to speak with a variety of different people across the evening through a series of 4 minute dates and thereafter, and most importantly, with our speed dating events or any one of our singles events, everybody in attendance is there in all of their glory and with nothing to hide. Because at the end of the day, we’d like to think that everyone there is who they say they are, especially when compared to all these fake online profiles in existence these days!

Plus, while you may think tweeting online, snap chatting away and searching for singles on POF or Tinder may be the simplest answer to your prayers and the safest form of dating, think again.

As we’ve already mentioned, there’s plenty of fake profiles going around these days so be careful not to be lured into any dangerous situations. The beauty of our speed dating and singles events in London is that each and every one of them are hosted in hand selected, exclusive venues, all of which are comfortable, safe and conveniently located to ensure your safety at all times.

This is where face to face interactions, wins hands down in comparison to other forms of dating. There is absolutely nothing more important than your safety and well being and the entire Date in a Dash team strive to provide the best venues for our events for this reason- to ensure the best possible outcome all around.

And, what about safety in numbers when it comes to the dating world? If you know your friends are heading to one of our highly targeted local London speed dating events, why not pop along and see what all of the fuss is about? While many people come to our singles events alone, what could be better than turning up with a mate or two, and see where the evening takes you.

We all know how much of an effort it can be sometimes to get up, brush yourself off and start the quest of looking for love but if you are wanting to meet a friendly, genuinely nice singletons in London you’re going to need to venture out of the house and into the real world. Expanding your social circle is very important when you are trying to meet someone new and what better opportunity to meet likeminded singles in London than attending one of our singles events along with a friend. We’d say it’s a win, win situation all around!

Living, working and socialising in the city of London is something rather unique. And so, why not embrace the craziness that is the capital and jump on the many forms of public transport on offer right here in the city be it the tube, the train or a London bus. Lurking down underground may well be your perfect match en route to one of our singles events (you just never know!).

Now we appreciate that not everyone in London is single but next time you see someone you like the look of, make eye contact, have a little natter, flirt if you feel comfortable and remember- be brave, social interaction with others is key to communicating with other likeminded singles so just dig deep as you never know what might happen. If nothing else, it’s all good practice in developing your confidence and seeing how you talk with others so that by the time you come to attending one of our London speed dating events you’ll feel ready to roll for a full filled evening full of 4 minute dates, and lots, lots more!
