Speed dating is a formalized matchmaking process of dating system whose purpose is to encourage people to meet a large number of new people.

Its origins are credited to Rabbi Yaacov Deyo of Aish Ha Torah, originally as a way to help Jewish singles meet and marry.

Speed Dating, as a single word, is a registered trademark of Aish Ha Torah.

Speed dating, as two separate words, is often used as a generic term for similar events.

the first 2 are at Standon Calling the amazing summer festival and include our first ever LGBTQ event- woop! and our next two events once we are back and have recovered brain cells are on 4th August and 22nd September.

Taste of Play tickets on 4th August are available and include a miracle fruit tablet to totally tantalise and flip your taste buds and a mini buffet feast to explore. On 22nd September we are playing at a fantastic venue The Islington Town House just opposite Angel Station.

’ Conversation flowed and some guys actually came prepared with interesting icebreaker questions – for example, one asked, ‘if you could host a dinner party, who would you invite?

’ Even if he did use the same line on all the ladies, it did make it a more positive experience.

I should interject before I go on that I do think speed dating should come with a firm caution along the lines of: ‘It is entirely possible you’ll have crap, awkward dates where the three-minute slot may feel like an eternity. We cannot be held accountable for the shittiness of the talent on offer.’ I didn’t walk away from the night with the feeling that I’d met my Prince Charming, but I did meet an entire spectrum of men – from the weird one who gave off a serial killer-vibe (more on him in a second), to the beardy man who chatted to me for an extra 40 seconds after the whistle was blown. This time around I was on top form: I made the ‘yes’, ‘no’ or ‘friend’ selection on my scorecard as the night progressed, I made notes too.
