How Speed Dating Works in Portsmouth

When you arrive at the Portsmouth venue you will be greeted by our friendly professional hosts. Once everyone has arrived and registered we will briefly explain the format of the evening. The ladies will then be asked to make their way to their allocated table. Once the ladies are seated the gentlemen will be asked to proceed to their first date.

You will have 4 minutes to chat to each date, once the 4 minutes is over we will ring a bell to indicate the time is up and for the gentlemen to move to their next date. Four minutes is long enough to see if you click with the person you are talking to and whether you would like to see them again and also short enough if you don't.

At the end of each date you have a brief few moments to make some notes on the person you have just dated. This is something to help jog your memory for the post event matching process the next day.

Half way through the event you will have an interval break so you can nip to the toilet or top up your drink. Once all the dates are over you have the opportunity to stay on at the venue to mingle freely with others. Please remember to take your dating card home with you to assist you in entering in your ticks and potential matches.

Post Event

No later than midday the following day our matching system will be unlocked for you to enter your ticks from the previous evening. You have all day to tick as many people as you like from the night before. We guarantee you will find someone you will want to see again, otherwise we will give you your next Speed Dating event for free!

I enjoyed the evening however found the pool of people to be older than expected / not to my preference. I didn't know if i should attend a 20-30s group or a 30-40s as I am in the middle of the age range and either extreme probably isnt suitable for me, I would like to attend another event though.

Had a really great night, really fun, but I didn't feel any spark or connection with anyone. Erica the host was amazing and such a lovely person.

A lovely night! Erica was an excellent host. My second slow dating experience and I’m hooked. (Until I find someone special of course)

This was my first time speed dating and was not sure what to expect thankfully I was not the only first timer the host was outstanding made everyone feel comfortable and explained everything she definitely made things go more smoothly and made me feel comfortable from start to finish I will definitely be attending again now I know what to expect
