If you've ticked a person and they've ticked you, you'll each be sent contact details for the other person and you can arrange to meet up again.Well that’s the practical stuff, so if you add three large glasses of wine, a vodka and diet coke, my friend Emma and a host called Jamie (who seemed determined to make it as obvious as possible that I was attending the event for my job), then you've pretty much got my experience of speed dating!Can you really tell if someone's 'the one' in four minutes?I went along to a speed dating event in Leicester to go on twenty dates in one night to find out.Please arrive from 7.30pm to check in, You’ll be welcomed by your host, Franco and Des who will explain how speed dating works and then invited to the bar to drink, relax and mingle with your fellow daters while we register all our guests.Once the dating begins the Ladies remain seated whilst the Guys rotate every 4 minutes when a bell rings.
Especially if you are someone who works in a busy career where there is a lot expected of you.
Have you been single for a while, or maybe even newly single and you are looking to get back into dating?
Find Love With Singles Events in Nottingham There is no doubt that it’s getting harder and harder to find a great person to settle down with.
When Emma and I walked in to the Original Four nightclub in Leicester where the event was being held, the room was already pretty full despite the fact we'd come early so I could put my recording equipment and camera behind the bar without anyone noticing.
Coupled with the price of the evening, a pretty expensive £20, this shows exactly how seriously a lot of the people there were taking the event – it was not simply an amusing night out, it was a genuine attempt to find a partner.
The men taking part were mostly at least ten years older than me, and after we had finished discussing what we do, where we're from and what we like doing in our spare time, finding common ground would be pretty difficult.
