How Speed Dating Works in Southampton

When you arrive at the Southampton 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 11am the following morning 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!

    The venue was okay, although not easy to find and some distance from car parks. I am shy and felt a bit intimidated at first. I arrived as instructed at 7.10pm for a 7.30 start, and spent a long time feeling self-conscious sitting on my own. As the event started late at 8.15pm. I think the hosts should have made an effort to introduce me and one or two others who were there on their own to one of the groups who were chatting - all of the women had come with one or two friends. Every one of my dates said that 4 minutes wasn't long enough, especially as there were only 7 men and 9 women. I agree with them. Had the event started on time we could have had longer per 'date' rather than sitting around. At the end of the event the groups who had chatted at the start grouped together again, and I was once again on my own, so left, feeling more alone than when I arrived, Of the 9 women, I had 4 nos, 3 maybes and 2 yeses, so ticked five. As I write, 6 of the 9 women have submitted their choices and none have selected me. I am bright, intelligent, kind, gentle, have a sense of humour, am slim, athletic, very fit for my age and was probably one of the better looking of the seven men there. My friend''s wives and girlfriends cannot believe I am single and cannot get a date. Your event has plummeted my self-confidence through the floor and made me more convinced than ever that I am virtually undateable..

    Hi there, Thank you for your feedback, we are sorry to hear you have been left feeling a little flat after our event. We have passed on your feedback to our hosts, we know they were quite busy organising the event, however we want everyone to feel comfortable. Traditionally, Speed Dating is three minutes, however at Slowdating we give you four minutes and the idea is that that small time will leave you wanting to spend more time with the person you connect with! Love can be frustrating and we are sorry to hear you have not received any matches as of yet, however you never know if the other three Ladies will tick you! Please remember you can review your choices for 28 days on our website by logging in to your profile. We truly believe that there is someone out there for everyone and hope that you consider returning to an event in the future and that we can help build your confidence and find love! Kindest Regards, The Slowdating Team
