AJ – Glasgow Speed Dating Host

  • Tell us about yourself!

My name is AJ and I’ve been hosting slow dating events in my spare time for a couple of years.

I live in Glasgow with my dog and when I am not working in my day job (or ringing my bell every four minutes), you will find me socialising with friends, volunteering as a befriender or cheering on my fave football team!

  • What do you love most about hosting?

I love meeting all the fabulous single ladies that are out there! And I get a thrill when I see two people hitting it off – I feel like a modern day Cilla Black!

  • Describe yourself in 3 words?

Outgoing, outspoken and kind.

  • What makes you smile?

Flowers, and my fave football team winning!

  • Who’s your celebrity crush?

James Norton!

Michelle – Oxford Speed Dating Host

  • Tell us about yourself!

By day I work in Publishing and by night I’m a speed dating host! I live in Oxford now but grew up Hawaii and love to travel whenever I can. I absolutely love horse riding, which I do most weekends and on a summer evening I be found paddle boarding on the rivers around Oxford.

  • What do you love most about hosting?

I love meeting the variety of people that come to our events. I’m happy when I can see are having a good night, or even better when they tell me so. Often people are a bit nervous at the beginning, especially if they have never been before. So it’s great to see their confidence grow and that by the end of the night they have chatted to lots of people and leave the event feeling good and hopefully with some potential matches too!

My colleague at work recently told me that one of his flatmates met her boyfriend at one of the Oxford events and that was brilliant to hear.

  • How would your best friend describe you?

Fun hopefully! And up for new adventures. They would probably say that I’m always hungry too.

  • What makes you laugh?

My friends and old episodes of Frasier.

  • If you were given £1,000 tomorrow, what would you spend it on?

Probably a horse riding holiday somewhere warm.

Eugene – Nottingham Speed Dating Host

  • Tell us about yourself!

I am a confident outgoing man from Nottingham who currently runs a lifestyle company and has previously played Professional football for Chesterfield FC!

  • What do you love most about hosting?

I love the eclectic mix of people from all over the world looking for love. The nights in which I host I feel like I’m watching and hoping all my friends find what they are looking for.

  • How would your best friend describe you?

Talk-active, spontaneous, socialite and loco!

  • If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?

I love Salsa and Bachata, I love all that Latin Vibe so either Dominica Republic or Brazil.

Although I wouldn’t say No to Miami. Basically anywhere with Sun and music!

  • What’s the cheesiest chat up line that you’ve heard?

(Drops ice out his drink in front of girl, treads on it and says) “Now we’ve broken the ice can I get your number”

Disclaimer it wasn’t me! Hahahah

It’s like a night out! I get to spend my eve in a welcoming venue full of a variety of different people, it’s much better than just spending an eve in the pub as the conversation is flowing all night!

The first weekend in Jan…. the day everybody went back to work after new year I flew to Lanzarote. I spent my weekend in a bikini in 22° sunshine!
