Speed dating success stories and feedback

Dear Sir/Madam Having met my partner at one of your events in On Anon in Central London three and a half years ago, I am writing to let you know we have recently got married. Thanks, James


In January 2006 I met CJ (Screen name Marathon Man) on the chatrooms on Speeddater. My screen name was Brighton Babe! We chatted and emailed for a bit. At the time I lived in Brighton and he lived in London. After a year of seeing eachother and having weekends in London and Brighton we decided to move in together. At xmas 2007 we went on holiday to barbados. We went on a new years eve party on a ship! CJ disapeared for a while. Then the song from my favourite film An Officer and a Gentleman came on you know " Love lifts us up where we belong! then cj walks accross the ship dressed in full naval officers uniform (Richard Gere style) and proposed! 2 years later we returned to barbados and got married on the beach 20 December 2009. I think speedater is a great website for meeting people! and am grateful as I found my Richard Gere! Here is the link to our u tube vidoe of the engagement night. I have also attached a photo from the engagement night and a couple of wedding photos!


In early 2011 my friend wanted to go to a speed dating event, so I agreed to go along for moral support. It was my first experience of speed dating, and I was a bit nervous at first, but I relaxed once it got started. We met two Irish guys during the event, and the four of us went out for some drinks afterwards. We all got along well (“good craic” as the guys would say) so at the end of the night I gave my number to one of the guys, but I missed a digit (I blame his ancient phone!). The next day he got in touch with me through the SpeedDater website, and a couple of weeks later he asked when me and my friend were free to catch up. She said it was an excuse to get a date with me, so I agreed to meet him for a drink at a pub in Covent Garden. I wasn’t sure whether I fancied him, but thought there was no harm in going for a drink. I think he was a bit nervous initially (the one and only time I’ve seen him nervous!) and rambled on about skiing, but after a while he relaxed and I started to have a good time. By the end of the night I realised I had met a hilarious, cheeky and very smart guy. We organised our next date then and there, and almost 18 months later we are still together and couldn’t be happier!

Hi, Thought it was about time I shared my success story with you, after convincing a single friend to go speed dating. Back in 2003, at the age of 30, after being in an 8 yr relationship, I found myself single. I moved out of my home and into a shared house of 3 other single girls. We we all 30 and put it down to a blip in our lives. Anyway, one of the girls in the house got tickets for us to all go speed dating at Turnmills on a Friday night. It was a great night, lots of fun, and that was the night I met Alex. I had seen him walk in, and even though I didn't get to speed date him, (as the time ran out), we got chatting at the bar. After many dates, 8 months later we travelled to Australia together and lived there for 2 years. On the 9th February 2006 we got married in Melbourne. Many of our friends and family celebrated with us. In February 2007 we made our way back home to the UK. We are still happily married and have 2 daughters, 6yrs and 4yrs.


Just a quick note to say thank you - Kris and I met at a big London singles party 2 years ago and are now happily married. I would highly recommend your services to anyone looking to meet new people as you never know who you might meet! Thanks you!!!! x
