Dating, Something A Little Different
Over 18 (20s & 30s)

Did you know that at speed dating, those who stay seated quickly become pickier than those who move seats? Did you know that The Mere-Exposure Effect means we develop a preference for people the more we see them, even if we don’t know them? Did you know that we actually like people better when they’re wearing warm colours, like red?


Come to The Date Lab and see how we’ve used science to create a truly unique event. We’ve used psychological principles to level the playing field and test singles' initial compatibility .

At our last event we had a match rate of 90% - a great outcome. Everyone deserves chemistry! Come to The Date Lab and see what sparks you can create.


After your purchase has been confirmed, we will send you The Date Lab Event Kit. This contains a description of how the night will run and a short list of unconventional rules you must adhere to. Once the event has finished you will be sent a full 'Chemistry Pack' detailing the the scientific principles and specific studies underpinning this unique event.

NB: This event is currently for ladies and gents in their 20s and 30s.
