After checking out their website and reading about their core values, I booked a ticket for their Date Night.I’ve tried speed dating once before, many moons ago, and at the time it didn’t really work for me.Unlike my previous speed dating experience, I instantly feel welcomed by James, our host. Since my aim is to simply meet new people, I decide to just go for it without following any set of rules or working from a specific list of questions. Of course, it’s not possible for everyone to like everybody, but nonetheless the guys were all polite and very sociable.The atmosphere is friendly and inviting, and the guys are already socialising at the bar where Champaign and canapés are served. Before we get started, James explains how things will work. The best thing about this speed dating event was that you are your own matchmaker and you get your results at the end of the evening.Register online for one of our special C2E2 sessions of 15 three-minute dates so you’ll no longer have to look for love in a galaxy far, far away.Choose from one of four hetero speed dating sessions or one for LGBT.
They don’t just focus on date nights, but also have upcoming networking events and will be actively involved at the London Pride.
Instead, when I fancy a guy and the feeling is mutual, I want to go on a few dates and see where it goes… A secret glance on the bus, a wink on the train, a bit of bench press spotting at the gym, a carefully choreographed bump into a hunk at a coffee shop or cracking up a conversation with a guy in a kebab shop who may or may not be batting for my team… However, at this rate, I’m afraid to say, I’m leaving a bit too much in the hands of my charming stepsisters, Miracle and Chance.
Just as I thought I stacked the odds too high, a friend recommended a new society for gay professionals in London, called The List.
The fine print: Advanced online registration is required (walk-ups will be based on availability).
Even though online dating is more widely accepted than ever before, it can be intimidating to jump into it for the first time.
