Wanting to get to know other like-minded, local people in a comfortable, relaxed, friendly way?
Cities can be thriving places with lots of interesting events going on and everyone can seem so busy with their full lives that sometimes it is challenging to find an opportunity to meet the right other people and for meeting and getting to know other singles. We can help you fill that gap.
Using principles taken from Yoga, Health and Fitness Training, Life Coaching, Success Psychology and Transformational Energy to attract the Relationship you aspire to have.
Who Will be There?
You will meet lots of other single and amazing people like you who like you want to meet each other and potentially meet that special, significant other.
By making it comfortable to chat and make friends we are able to prevent you from feeling shy whilst at the same time encouraging you to step out of your comfort zones.
This event is ideal for you if you are a busy individual who is needing a place to relax and meet other people in an easy and friendly atmosphere that allows you to get to know people without putting you in the dating hotspot.
Our events are designed to give you the opportunity to have an enjoyable evening meeting a range of single friendly people as potential friends without being thrown into the dating hot spot. We know that many people who are looking for new romantic relationships and connections in their lives also want to meet both Ladies and Gentlemen as friends and at our Speed Dating Events, we help facilitate a warm, easy atmosphere where friendship can grow. Gents you need to step and up and book right away as our Ladies usually get there first and we normally have a waiting list for Ladies and won’t book more until we have the right number of Gents. We try to have an even gender balance so please put your name on the waiting list if the event is sold out.

How Does the Event Go?
You are welcomed on arrival by our wonderful host who will sign you in and give you a badge and a dating card. There is usually a little time to get a drink and meet and mingle before the Speed Dating starts.
Speed dating is fun and a great way to meet up to 12 or more potential dates in one night. We suggest you dress casual smart and that you SMILE!
On guidance from the host the Speed Dating will start, and the usual format is for the women to remain seated at individual tables and the men to circulate. Depending on numbers you will have 4 or 5 minutes to talk to each person with a minute or so between meeting somebody new to make a few notes on your card about the person you have just met.
Be sure to make notes of who you meet on your dating card as it is easy to forget and please tear off the bottom of your card and give it back to the host at the end of the event so you can be connected with any matches. We take your privacy very seriously.
After the event you can log onto to our web site with your name and badge number and you will be able to see if there are any “matches’ who liked you too and you will be able to exchange contact details.
We are sure that you will meet and make friends with somebody you like at your first event and if you don’t, we guarantee to give you a free place on your next event. What’s more we are planning multiple events for you to choose from.
