Do People Who Come Speed Dating Ever Find 'The One'?

Whatever your feelings about speed dating you cant deny the facts. While some people still think that it is weird meeting someone through speed dating or that its shallow judging people as if its a game. Well, unfortunately, men and women just arent asking each other out in real life as much anymore, and meeting someone in a bar is just as dangerous or as shallow as meeting through any other means. Speed dating is ever growing in confidence and weve got our own success stories to be proud of!

Since launching in 2011, Dateinadash have been leading the way in the London speed dating industry. But for us, its not all about being the biggest and the best. Its about what our gorgeous singletons think of us, and the happiness theyve found since discovering us!

Over the years, weve had a whopping 3 weddings, a baby and lots of official relationships along the way. One thing were delighted to report is that our founder, Rob Ryall, receives emails all the time from once be singles who are now happily dating or taking the next big steps in their relationship all thanks to Dateinadash. There really is no better feeling in the world than knowing our speed dating company is responsible for lots of fluttering hearts, happy smiles and ever-lasting happiness across the capital.

Some of our singles found love in the blink of an eye- as soon as they clapped eyes on each other the deal was sealed (so to speak). For others, a slower burn took hold and over time, the couple realised theyd found their ideal match. One thing we would say is; dont rush love and dont worry if you dont find your perfect match straight away.

Theres over 7.5billion people in the world so getting the perfect two people in the room can sometimes take more than one attempt. One thing is for sure; whatever singles event you attend, well guarantee youll have a fantastic evening out with likeminded individuals from across London.

Just like the Lotto, speed dating is a bit of a lottery. In essence, its a random bunch of people grouped by ages. Over the years weve discovered that events targeting older people tend to yield more success. Maybe its because the singles attending are more serious about finding their ideal match, rather than a drunken encounter? Or maybe its because people panic that their body clock is ticking? Whatever the reason, the facts speak for themselves.

Likewise, our midweek speed dating events are also very popular as people look forward to breaking up their working week. The singles attending these types of events are also more serious than those attending the weekend versions. Maybe its because theyve got to go back to work the next day so cannot fully let their hair down? Who knows?!

    October 30, 2018 AT 11:44AM GMT+0200 | 0 comments | leave a comment

    The days of a swift pint and a glitter ball being thought of as a decent night out are long gone. Instead, singles across London are increasingly seeking out events that involve a little more imagination.

    Its no surprise, then, that with the open-mindedness of singletons across the capital and the urge to experience something new and exciting, fetish events are on the increase and more popular than ever. Thinking of introducing some spice back into your life or got a burning desire to release the inner kink within you? Look no more!

    As Londons leading speed dating hosts, Dateinadash arent shy about bringing something new and unique to the dating scene. Naked speed dating; Ball Pit Dating; Dating in a Taxi; Yes, throughout 2018, weve been working our little butts off to deliver an array of fantastic singles events in London.

    As a dedicated team of professional speed dating hosts, we are proud to be the innovators in terms of unique singles events in London. And, were not slowing down with the introduction of Fetish Speed Dating this month. As the name suggests, Fetish Speed Dating is speed dating with a twist, and a sexy one at that! Brand spanking new from Dateinadash, London Fetish Speed Dating is set to be sexier and oh so fabulous than any of our events to date. What makes you tick, what gets you hot under the collar...all will be revealed at our amazing new singles event.

    While there are some more hardcore events around in the capital such as Fetlife and Club Rub, our new event is lighter making it ideal for those looking to explore the fetish scene. Maybe you are feeling intimidated by the more established communities? Maybe you are curious to see what the fetish scene is all about? Our London Fetish Speed Dating ticks all of the boxes for those looking to delve into this scene at an entry level, without any judgement. Women seem to love the idea about getting kinky and talking about sex. While some people might find it daunting to strip off and get completely naked, the idea of exploring the fetish scene is very popular. Whether you love dressing up in nurses uniforms, adore latex or prefer kinky PVC or leather outfits, we want you to come dressed as you wish and show us your inner kink. Of course, if you prefer to be at one in your own skin, feel free to turn up in the nude and rock your birthday suit.

    Similar to our standard speed dating events, there will be equal numbers of men and women sat down at individual tables. However, to mix things up and raise the heat in venue, youll find toys to play with ranging from dog collars, paddles, whips and blindfolds. Think Fifty Shades of Grey crossed with a very successful singles evening and youll be spot on with our new Fetish Speed Dating event. One thing is for sure, theres absolutely ZERO touching or sexual activity of any kind within the four walls of our exclusive venue! What you choose to get up after the event is completely up to you, but for our Dateinadash event, we definitely do not tolerate it. Sorry guys and girls!

    So, if youd like to explore the fetish scene and talk about all things kinky, this is the event for you. Set for the end of November, our Fetish Speed Dating event will be held at the Exhibit venue in Balham.
