Speed dating in nottinghamshire

By the time you have reached your last speed dater you will have noted the number of every potential 'date' you have met in that time. Step four: After the event you will be contacted with your match details via e-mail or text. You basically turn up at a venue with 40 to 50 other unattached individuals and spend your night having speed dates - three minute chats with each individual.

Nottingham has many fantastic bars, clubs and restaurants within its' busy city centre.

We at Ditch or Date have chosen stylish venues for our speed dating events which are held in private lounge bars.

Quite a few people said they had so much fun, this was their second or even third time attending.

There was a good mix of people, various ages (20’s-30’s) and before the dating got started everyone mingled, chatted and got a few drinks in. The hardest part of the night seemed to be remembering who everyone was even with space for notes on the scorecard.

My motives I wasn’t going to Speed date to find myself a boyfriend, I was going to have some fun and if a positive side affect was a date, then all the better.

It seemed to be an attitude shared by most of the people I spoke to on the night, in fact for several this wasn’t their first time.

Early nerves I was quite nervous to begin with because I was wondering what to ask; but when you sit down and get face to face with people it gets easier. Entering your ‘ticks’ is done via the organiser's website so that ‘matches’ can e-mail and arrange for a date that hopefully lasts longer then three minutes! My only criticisms of the night would be that this is definitely an event that needs to be kept small.

On the downside the event was quite large so by a dozen or so dates down the line, it was difficult to think up new questions or fun answers without being repetitive. I had around 25-30 dates and after 10 it was seriously becoming hard to remember who was who.

Please note all guests can get free dating after the event with the people they have just met.
