Brexit Speed Dating
October 8, 2019 AT 4:45PM GMT+0200 | 0 comments | leave a comment

Oh the Brexit debate! Its impossible to escape the constant updates and torrents of conflicting data but one things for sure, were on a fast track train to 31st October! This means only one thing- the Brexit deadline is approaching whether we like it or not!

Well agree that its a very confusing and divisive time for politics, but whether you voted for or against Brexit, how it will all pan out looks- at this point at least- rather uncertain. As of today, Boris Johnson remains adamant: Britain is quitting the European Union at the end of this month. Yet even now, even at this dark hour for our troubled democracy and its creaking institutions, any benefits of departure remain blurred at best amid intense focus on the exit process.

Anyway, enough about that! Lets get down to the nitty gritty! Whether you voted to Remain or Leave, were bringing you a unique, one of a kind dating event to the capital! An aptly named Brexit Dating event, this will be an evening like no other. Kicking off at 8pm promptly at The Exhibit venue in the heart of Balham, this event is being held on Wednesday 30th October and is designed for those aged 24-40.

As Londons number 1 speed dating hosts, the team here at Dateinadash believe true love conquers all and this special event will certainly put this to the test! Did you know in the UK, 2.7million relationships broke down in 2016 due to politics? Thats a crazy stat but proves just how fired up people can get about what they believe in.

Peoples political views often highlight an individuals wider social values and if you arent on the same path or have ultra-conflicting views, you can see how this could cause unrest or tension. That said, the old saying opposites attract could well be put to the test during our evening of Brexit dating in London. As always, we think its good to talk and a healthy debate or good old fashion chin wag is the ideal way to spend an evening.

Forget lounging about on your sofa at home, why not brush yourself off, get dressed up (if you fancy it) and head on over to Balham for an unforgettable evening of chat, flirting and healthy discussion. Once youve arrived at the exclusive venue, youll get a label highlighting whether youd like to Remain or Leave in the EU. Youll have your own reasons for voting but maybe some of the below resonate with you.

Heres a little overview on some of the reasons you want to Leave or Remain (remember theres no right answer but your freedom of speech and thought will be a great talking point).

REMAIN

Being able to trade freely across the EU helps UK businesses grow and create jobs, giving you more opportunities and more financial security.

In the EU you can find work, holiday and retire without visas, and study abroad on the Erasmus programme, offering you even more ways to get on in life.

Being in the EU means cheaper prices on food and fuel, giving you more money to put aside for a deposit on a home, starting a family or even a holiday.

LEAVE

In cash terms, Britain is the second biggest contributor to the EU budget after Germany. If we leave the EU, wed get some money back into our country.

By withdrawing from the EU, we can organise economic and social not by deliberate design from the top down, but more organically and spontaneously. From the bottom up. There would be much tighter controls over who enters the country.

.And breathe

Of course, these are just some of the for and against arguments in regards to the never-ending Brexit saga which has been a part of our lives for three years now!

Filled to the brim with gorgeous singles, this London speed dating event is set to be a great evening. To get the event in full swing and truly break the ice, there will be various icebreaker questions based around Brexit (of course!). Then all of the lovely ladies will be invited to be seated, with the men rotating between the tables every 4 minutes. Its been proven- all you need is 4 minutes to get to know someone and first impressions really do count so get chatting and see what vibes you get from the gorgeous singleton sat opposite you.

After your quick-fire date, youll mark on your scorecard whether youd like to see your date again. Dont panic, they wont know your answers so be honest with yourself. Would you like to meet up with them again to continue your Brexit discussions? Or maybe youd like to know more about them as a person- what theyre into, where they live and when they are free to go on another date?!

All scorecards are then collected at the end of the speed dating sessions and collated overnight. But panic not, you wont have to wait long until you hear the findings as well email you with the results the next day, so you can do as you wish with them.

In our opinion, if this event doesnt get you talking openly and frankly with others, we dont know what will! Above all else, this very tailored speed dating event is meant to be good fun. Plus, youll learn oh so much about each other and likely form some level of interest with other London singletons. While you may not fully agree with everyones Brexit views, the level of passion and belief in your views is surely one way to get to know someone?

Dont forget to arrive at The Exhibit with plenty of time (15-30 minutes before it begins!) to avoid missing the start of the event.


Dating In The Future
June 6, 2019 AT 11:16AM GMT+0200 | 0 comments | leave a comment

In 2019 it’s hard to think about what dating in the future will be like, but with the advances in technology gaining pace at an alarming rate of knots, who knows what is around the corner. To be honest, it’s a mystery what the future holds and whether new dating techniques are viable options for many London singletons. Here we will have a look at what’s new in the world of dating and our thoughts on the way things are heading.

We’re not sure if you’ve heard but there’s a new Virtual Reality bar in London and it’s oh so cool. Situated beneath a railway arch in Haggerston, East London, singletons from across the capital will soon be able to step into The Otherworld where you’ll be able to try the latest VR experiences with other likeminded singles- all within sci-fi surroundings.

Boasting state-of-the-art VIVE headsets, enhanced by rooms that generate all manner of multi-sensory effects, The Otherworld launches you into a VR world of mystery. Here it’s likely you’ll find yourself bending the very fabric of time on a VR adventure! How cool, we hear you say?

Well you are in luck! We’re delighted to announce that Dateinadash have a fantastic new event coming to this unique venue very soon. Keep your ear to the ground and watch this space for updates as this event is set to be something rather different. As London’s number 1 speed dating hosts, as with all of our singles events, this one is going to be highly targeted and is set to draw a crowd of gorgeous singles looking for a great evening out! Beats staying in and watching the box, huh?

One thing we’re intrigued to know the answer to is, will people meet face to face in the future or will people meet in another world or through a computer game? If so, how would it work logistically? Or will people start dating intelligent robots instead of humans? You may laugh but in China they experimented with a speed dating event where humans flirted and interacted with AI (artificial intelligent) dolls. For those with a fantasy like this, it must have been a dream come true but we’d question that AI dolls cannot give the same love and affection as real men and women.

Alternatively, will everyone turn to DNA dating where your blood type alone determines your fate? We hope not as that’s putting love down to your genetic makeup rather than natural instincts and your heart’s desire.

Of course, over the years the increase in online dating and dating via apps has steadily increased. While we cannot deny it’s been hugely successful for some happy couples, others have had less than successful encounters. Mainly because this form of dating can be rather fake and a faceless way of communicating with other singles!

Often things get lost in translation, or there’s simply one thing on people’s mind and while that’s human nature, as the saying goes ‘You cannot beat the real thing’ and oh how this is true. This is why, as speed dating experts, we truly believe the best form of dating is via face to face interactions such as speed dating.

Firstly you can get the ‘vibe’ from the people you meet and physically see or feel a connection which in our books counts for a lot. We aren’t saying that you’ll instantly know if someone is the love of your life from the few minutes you chat to each other BUT you’ll know if you want to speak to them again to find out more.

Meeting in this way also lets you see how they act around you, what their body language is like and you’ll soon discover what attracted them to you (if you meet someone you connect with). Plus, you’ll get to meet them in a safe environment surrounded by other likeminded individuals, all in the same boat as you. There’s no judging, no bitching, just appreciation and a sense of mutual respect for each other. What’s there not to love about London speed dating really?

So there you have it! While we have NO idea what the future world of dating will look like, we’re continuing with what we know works- offering successful speed dating events in London to singletons looking for someone who will love them for being YOU!

7 Date Ideas On The Water
May 26, 2019 AT 10:27AM GMT+0200 | 0 comments | leave a comment

With summer fast approaching, theres no better time to get out and about and exploring our wonderful capital! Im sure its not only the Dateinadash team who get a permanent smile on our faces when the sun is out? Anyway with this glorious weather upon us, weve handpicked some fantastic date ideas for dates on the water. Ideal for a good first date weve got various activities to enjoy during the upcoming summer months.

1. First up we suggest hiring a canoe or kayak and going on an adventure. We think that going kayaking is one of the more unique first date ideas for a variety of reasons! Obviously, getting out on the water is an active first date which can be appealing to both men and women. Whats more, a water based workout + date = two birds, one stone!

This is also a great idea for a first date as most rental places offer single or tandem kayaks. This means you can either bring out your more competitive side or you can go together for a more picturesque view while getting up close and personal. You most likely will also work up an appetite with all the paddling so be sure to grab a cocktail and some appetizers afterward at a local hot spot. Whether you stay in the capital or venture a little further afield, a water based adventure is sure to raise the temperature rising, for all the right reasons!

2. Hottug... OK, we understand this one may sound a little odd but its essentially a hot tub in the Thames! A unique yet fun experience in the heart of central London, the Hottug is an electric, self-drive, wood-fired hot tub.

If thats not enough to get you signed up, the best part about the Hottug is its available all year round thanks to the fresh water heated to a soothing 38 C/ 100.4 F, each and every time. Ideal for a first date, the Hottug experience is definitely one youll remember for a long time yet. So, if youre looking for something different to do in London, then this is a must!

3. Next up is something thats making a splash! OK, so its not in the capital itself but a short distance away in Berkshire or Surrey, but we dont think youll mind when you see just how much fun it is!

Why not head to Windsor, Berkshire for the Worlds Number One water sports and activity park! Liquid Leisure is home to Europes Largest Aqua Park and the first official Ninja Warrior UK Aqua Park, set on one of the most beautiful private freshwater lakes amongst stunning parkland in the heart of Berkshire.

With options including wakeboarding on our world leading cable water sports lake, clambering across our floating obstacle courses, enjoying our boat activities, relaxing on the largest beach resort in Berkshire, enjoying live sports and entertainment in our bar, theres something for everyone. This makes Liquid Leisure the perfect place to enjoy a day out with your new date!

Alternatively, the park in Shepperton Surrey is set on a beautiful private freshwater lake next to Ash Link Nature Reserve. With the option to clamber across a 400sqft floating obstacle course, Stand Up Paddleboard or just relax and relish the setting, there is something here for everyone to enjoy.

4. If you love the water and still love to party, weve got just the thing for you. Pop on your dancing shoes and get ready to party on a Thames disco cruise through the heart of the capital. A guaranteed fun filled night of drinks, dancing and good vibes, nows the time to grab your gorgeous date and show them your moves.

Ideal if youre looking for an unusual and memorable night out on the water, here at Dateinadash, Londons #1 speed dating company, we think theres no better way to bring the party atmosphere out onto the water of the iconic Thames all while soaking up the sights and views of this beautiful city.

5. Next, why not hire a RIB boat for a fast, fun and safe trip along the Thames?! Choose a confident and experienced skipper and youll be on your way to a fantastic date. See oodles of famous London landmarks and enjoy a special guided tour from the water when you choose this unique mode of transport!

For anyone and everyone who wants to see the capitals most famous sights with all the added thrills and spills of racing a RIB boat, this is the perfect first date in our eyes!

6. Furthermore, wild swimming has definitely got to be up there for unique water based first dates, right? Wild swimming is essentially swimming outdoors in natural spaces, such as rivers, lakes or the sea. It has seen a surge in popularity in recent years with more and more people taking to the water on a regular basis.

But why has wild swimming become so popular? We think its because more and more people want to escape the hustle and bustle of daily London life and want to feel at home with nature. What better way than to wild swim in our fantastic waters and feel truly alive?! Just make sure your date is a confident swimmer and dont forget to stick together guys and girls!

7. Last but by no means least weve got two amazing roof top pools which you wont even believe are in London! First up, set on the seventh floor of the luxury Knightsbridge Berkeley hotel, theres a striking rooftop pool beautifully tiled in white and gold mosaic that you wont think you are in England! Swim in sunshine when the weather heats up and the pool is uncovered, while healthy treats and sun loungers designed by architect Spencer Fung are available poolside with views of west London.

Secondly, Shoreditch House members and hotel guests can use the lush pool - most choose to lounge around lapping up rare London sun on the red and white candy striped day beds, aperol spritzes in hand. Seriously, could it get any better? Nope, we dont think so.

Of course, if you are single and looking to mingle, weve got just what you need. An array of singles and speed dating events in London await you and we cannot wait to show you a good time in the capital. Check out our Speed Dating events and see what all the fuss is about! Well guarantee you a great night out and the chance to meet up with a mixture of like minded gorgeous singletons from across the capital. Heres to finding love on the water! We look forward to seeing you very soon.

Here at DateinaDash it’s certainly one of our greatest achievements to date and we couldn’t be happier. This is especially true since we were one of the later speed dating companies to start up in the capital, but we’ve already smashed this impressive milestone and there’s no sign of letting up anytime soon!

To celebrate this achievement, our team at HQ have compiled some interesting stats for you to mull over!

• There are 25,211 female users of our London speed dating company
• 4,239 singletons have never attended an event. But so what you say? They bought a ticket but never showed up- where did they all go? We’re hoping they found true love beforehand but will we ever know?
• 85% of our lovely customers have had at least 1 match. The other 15%, they didn’t miss out either as we granted them free access to any of our other speed dating or singles events in the London so we had winners all round!
• We’ve had 3 confirmed weddings through our events (there could well be more for all we know!)
• 10% of our speed daters book a second event to see what Cupid has in store for them.
• Our oldest speed dater is 75, while our youngest is 18.

• We have had several celebrity customers including Nikki Graeme from Big Brother, England Rugby players and a past Apprentice finalist.
• One of our past customers was a dog who attended with his blind owner.

It is heart-warming for us to see that more and more people care about finding their perfect match, or just having a great evening out socialising with other likeminded singletons, as much as we do. We can only hope that this number will grow over the next years!

We would like to thank all of our customers, both past and present, that have helped us make London the perfect place to find love. As London’s most popular speed dating event provider we believe that not only should people have the confidence to come and try one of our events, but that it is also vital to have innovative, safe and popular speed dating and singles events to keep things fresh and exciting.

We are thrilled to have reached this milestone and with all the excitement and anticipation, the team here at Dateinadash cannot wait to celebrate 100k users. Bring it on, we say!


Survive The Valentines Season; 10 Things For Singles To Do!
February 11, 2019 AT 11:11AM GMT+0200 | 0 comments | leave a comment

1) Pamper yourself

Forget a significant other- spoil yourself this Valentines and shower yourself with some good old fashioned love. Why not try a beauty treatment in the comfort of your home? Alternatively, splash some cash and get yourself a facial, spa or get your nails done with colourful and beautiful nails to truly brighten up your day! At the day draws closer, top the day off with a lovely glass of wine or ice cold G&T!

2) Get on a health kick

So its true; theres nothing better than a lung full of fresh air after some exercise! Not only is exercise good for you, it also generates feelings of calmness and happiness which is perfect for the Valentines season! In turn, exercise can reduce stress as well as pain. Dont like exercise? Try something low impact such as swimming for a great all round option, youll be surprised with the results.

3) Catch up on Netflix series

Theres something truly satisfying about kicking back, relaxing and binge watching your favourite TV series or latest films. Choose from one of the oodles of latest releases or opt for some of the all time classics such as Friends or feel good chick flicks such as Romeo and Juliet.

4) Make other plans

At this time of year, if youre single and fed up with all of the lovey dovey stuff, do anything other than that! Get all of your mates together and have some single love-ins with your girl/guy friends. Go out to watch a film, go out for dinner or head out and paint the town red! Youre not the only single person in the world, so embrace the other singles in your life with a night of fun.

5) Rustle up something delicious

Cook up a tasty dish in the comfort of your own home and eat it ALL to yourself. This is surely the best part- not having to share!!

6) Enjoy saving your money and treat yourself to something nice

As you get a warm, fuzzy feeling as you look at your bank balance, be proud on what youve managed to save this year. Youve got two options here- save the pennies to put it towards something really lovely, or have a little flutter and treat yourself here and now!

8) Get more for less; take advantage of the Valentine themed treats

Buy as much half-priced sweets and chocolate as you can on February 15th. Just because its wrapped in pretty red foil does not mean it has gone off; far from it. Enjoy it and dont feel bad for one minute! Youve paid less for the overpriced products so its win win all round!

9) Give a little love to those who deserve it

If someone has given you a nice smile at your local coffee shop, chuck some pennies in the tip jar and make their day! Its the little things that add up, and youll feel great for actually meaning it when you say thank you.

10) Love really is what you make of it!

When you do meet somebody, you can celebrate being in love and working as team. But until then, dont fret about being single. Yes, its nice to have a date in the diary but love should be shown 365 days a year, not just on Valentines Day!
