As the UK’s favourite speed dating company, we have over 18 years of experience making matches. During the Covid-19 pandemic, like many others, we adapted our events and offered an innovative and exciting new way of meeting eligible singles online. At current, we do not offer Virtual Speed Dating, however, we understand that a lot of individuals like to meet online, even if it is to build confidence to get back on the dating scene!
For those who can’t leave the house or prefer to stay in, it’s vital to still have the opportunity to meet and chat with new people. The options for this had previously been limited, but now virtual dating means you can cover a lot of ground in a short space of time from the comfort of your sofa, or kitchen table.
We always advise to approach those that you meet online with the same respect and hesitation as you would a stranger and never to disclose personal information such as your address, bank details, etc.
If you are not ready to try in-person dating at one of our Speed Dating Events, find below a few of our choice of Online Dating Sites to get dating virtually!
For those who prefer a more modern approach, swipe-next.com is the go-to. As one of the best dating sites for serious relationships, it offers a unique swiping feature that has become synonymous with modern dating.
If you're open to exploring love beyond borders and want a platform with a vast user base, Cupid.com is the best dating site to embark on your journey.
If you're tired of fleeting dates and want something more substantial, this is the dating site that actually works for serious seekers.
Forget having to jump on a bus, trains or pay for taxis - dating from your phone or laptop virtually stops all of this! And if you’ve been working from home all day, it creates a great change of pace and atmosphere for your evening. You’ll feel like you’ve had a night out, having a night in.
However if you want a change of scenery and to meet a person IN person, our Speed Dating events are perfect for this! Get dressed up after a day working from home and have an evening meeting a variety of people and experiencing something different at one of our activity events!
It’s the next best thing to chatting in real life if you do not feel ready to meet at an in-person event! Unlike scrolling through inanimate photos and sending text-based messages, many online dating platforms now offer the chance to meet via webcam. Watching someone on a webcam uncovers their body language, mannerisms and charisma, meaning you can make a faster and more accurate judgement as to whether you’ll click. No wasting time and energy on fruitless and lengthy messages.
With virtual dating, all you have to do is click a couple of buttons and you will be dating in no time. How else could you socialise and have a laugh with access to a whole new bunch of people, without leaving the house?
All of our in-person events are held in safe and beautiful public venues and everything is taken care of on the night. We have a friendly host on hand to talk you through the evening and keep everyone chatting and feeling relaxed!
Even if finding a relationship doesn’t feel like a priority right now, virtual dating or speed dating is a superb addition to your social life and a fantastic way to meet new and exciting people.
You don’t have to give out your personal details (like your Skype or Zoom address or social media account names) to video date, however this is sometimes the case for some online dating sites.
With our in-person Speed Dating Events only your first name is given at the event and after the event, your details will only be shared with your match/es providing you agree to give consent.
