STOP PRESSDon't miss out on our Valentine's Speed Dating event for the 35-55 age group at Chislehurst on Friday 10th February.

Speed dating and blind date organisers offer events which allow you to meet several like-minded singles at once.

The blind date dinner used to be the classic where 6-8 singles meet for dinner at an actual restaurant.

Don’t bother with other gay dating events such as Village Drinks, Village Drinks, Urban Connections (Urban Connections), or Pink Date (Pink Date).

Our gay speed dating format is completely different to theirs.Shhh Dating There's no need for awkward small-talk at these unconventional silent speed-dating events. In the first you can mime, squeak and gesticulate but in the second there's total silence; only staring into each other's eyes is allowed.At the end you'll get to mingle and bring out the excellent conversational skills you've been bottling up all evening. Just look at your friends: what a wonderfully diverse group of liberal, cool, opinionated, engaged, open-minded, creative, talented, attractive people! These quirky dating events will help you overcome those initial awkward encounters by providing both alcoholic lubrication and an easy opening gambit. The problem with dating in London isn't that there aren't lots of beautiful people out there, it's that we're incapable of talking to each other without some common ground, or a belly full of booze.You can meet up to 15 people using live video and instant messaging in one hour!
