8 wonderful years!
I love hosting the speed dating and singles parties. I enjoy meeting new people and hearing a bit about their life. I’ll write a book about it all one day. I’m also really proud to part of the UK’s #1 singles event site.
I like the singles parties because they are massive with a great vibe. I think the biggest one I ever hosted had nearly 700 London singles! I also enjoy the elite dating as it has good networking opportunities. Singles wine tasting is also fun. There are too many great singles nights London to choose from!

I like to see everyone relax during the first couple of dates as they start to realise that this is just a very normal evening and by the end of the event everyone is telling what a great time they have had.
