Speed dating is the latest craze to hit the UK dating scene

It's a fun way to meet lots of other single people who are looking for a date.

The speed dating companies will organise a speed dating event where you go to meet other single people. It's normally very structured with an equal amount of both sexes attending.

The way each speed dating event is run will vary between the different organisers. Generally speaking, everyone will normally get put into pairs with their own table. You will then be given a few minutes to get acquainted with each other, hence the term 'speed dating'. You are then asked to move onto the next table and meet someone else. This process is repeated until you have met everyone at the event.

You will usually be given a card to keep track of each person you meet so that you can highlight anyone that you would like to get to know better. This card is given to the speed dating organisers at the end of the event for them to process. You will then be notified (normally via e-mail) if you have been matched with someone else, i.e. a person you chose, also liked you.

Check out the speed dating companies below to see if there is an event coming up in your area.



We hold SpeedDater events in upmarket bars. This makes for a great atmosphere and gives you the opportunity to stay afterwards and carry on talking to the people you've just met.

We close off an area of the bar, use a function room or sometimes take over the whole venue exclusively for SpeedDaters.

We start the speed dating early on - that's the ice breaker! When you arrive, you're given a scorecard, a pen and a badge. After each date you mark on the scorecard whether or not you would like to see them again. So, if you tick eight people and four of them tick you, you will receive four matches. After the event you can log onto our website to check your matches.

You get the chance to go on 20 to 25 fun dates, each lasting 3 minutes with XDate Speed. Dating for 3 minutes might not seem like much but you'd be surprise how easy it is to see if there's any chemistry with each of the people you meet. Our events are held at the trendiest bars in many UK cities including London, Manchester, Glasgow, Birmingham, Brighton, Leeds and more. So what are you waiting for sign up today for XDate Speed. Dating has never been so much fun!
