Speed dating is all about making an impression in a short time, and of course trying to get that second and longer date. A useful tip is to rehearse ahead of time what you might want to say about yourself and ask the other person. And it’s important to strike the right balance; you want to say something about yourself but also get to know your date as best you can. Be truthful about yourself and try to focus on questions that are straightforward, such as line of work, favourite holiday place, and interests and hobbies. First impressions are important, so dress carefully, ideally in something you know you look good in and you feel comfortable in. When taking part in speed dating London single people have the chance to capture the attention of another single, and hopefully arrange a proper date.
