Virtual Speed Dating London
March 24, 2020 AT 9:29AM GMT+0200 | 0 comments | leave a comment

Wow, what a crazy few weeks it's been in the UK and specifically in our fabulous capital. With the news just in that bars, pubs and restaurants are to shut their doors this evening, Dateinadash have switched things up and gear and will be bringing virtual dating to London. While the way we deliver our events might have temporarily changed, there's no need to be all doom and gloom!

To get started, all you'll need is a webcam or a smartphone and you will be ready to interact with a wave of gorgeous guys and girls all in the same boat as you- single, looking for love and potentially already self-isolating!

As with all of our London speed dating events, our virtual dating sessions will be led by a friendly host who will introduce everyone, ask some ice breaker questions to set the mood and organise fun drinking games for everyone to get involved in (should you wish to take part!)

Amidst the fun and games you'll also get to chat to the gorgeous singletons 'one on one' and get to know them a little better, as well as chat amongst each other in a group all at once. And to make it more realistic, there will even be a background of a virtual pub to make you feel right at home (from the comfort of your own home!)

Working and socialising in London has seen a big shift recently but we all need to embrace change and make it work for all of us. Now more than ever we need to dig deep, look out for each other and maintain social contact with people, by whatever means possible! This is why we're certain London virtual dating will go down a storm with the gorgeous singles of the city; the thought of not being able to mingle, flirt and chat with other like minded singles blows most people's minds and we're with you on that.

What's not to love about virtual dating with Dateinadash? There's no need to leave the comfort of your home but there's still the potential to find the love of your life! If not, you'll have a fun night of virtual socialising, we can assure you of that.

Interested? Tickets are 5-10 for a 1.5hr session. Choose between 7pm-8.30pm or 9pm-10.30pm time slot. Please note: There will be a handy post event matching so you can follow up conversations after the session has expired.

Oh, and one last time before we go! We will soon be doing virtual parties with between 50-100 people in attendance. Expect fun drinking games and lots of chances to flirt with an array of like-minded London singletons! Watch this space for more details...


Coronavirus Dating Update
March 16, 2020 AT 11:32AM GMT+0200 | 0 comments | leave a comment
While everyone's talking about the unwanted arrival of Covid-19, we're here to bring some reassurance and positivity to you! High fives all round; ALL of our London speed dating events are going ahead as planned.

Official Advice as of Sunday 15th March

As per the NHS website, COVID-19 is an illness that can affect your lungs and airways. It is caused by a virus called Coronavirus.

If you have any of the following symptoms the advice is to stay at home for 7 days:

A new, continuous cough- repeatedly coughing
A high temperature - you feel hot to touch on your chest or back

There's no need to go to a pharmacy, GP or hospital and you don't need to contact 111 that you are staying at home. Testing for coronavirus is not needed if you're staying at home. However, if your symptoms do not clear up within 7 days, get worse or you feel you cannot cope at home, call the 111 helpline (if you can't find online help).

For peace of mind, all of our speed dating events are going ahead and we're very much looking forward to welcoming you all! If you aren't experiencing any of the above, we cannot wait to see you at our exclusive speed dating venues across the capital. LET THE GOOD TIMES ROLL!

In line with current recommendations, we ask that everyone in attendance washes their hands thoroughly with soap and water- for at least 20 seconds. Each venue will have these facilities as standard but we advise you also wash your hands before and after you get to the venue for good measure. Each of our friendly, experienced speed dating hosts will be armed with the gold dust that is hand sanitiser gel for extra precaution and for peace of mind all round!

Of course, cleanliness will be at the top of everyone's priorities which is why we'll be wiping down all the tables at regular points for tip top conditions. As a hard working team, Dateinadash would like to put your mind at ease. We'll deal with all the safety side of things, so you can relax, unwind and enjoy your evening of guaranteed fun. Meeting with like-minded London singles, each and every one of our speed dating events will have you chatting, flirting and mingling with other singles in exactly the boat as you- single and ready to find love!

Finally, all our terms still apply with regards to cancelling any of our London speed dating events. Namely, we aren't able to accept cancellations less than 3 days before any given event as this could compromise the success and quality of the event due to the uneven ratio of males/females in attendance. For our full terms and conditions, click here.

Looking forwards...

Fancy trying out speed dating in London? Look no further than Dateinadash, London's most loved speed dating hosts. We will put your safety first for a guaranteed fun evening- just kick back, relax and go with the flow. Check out our range of Upcoming Events for more information!

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.
