What are speed dating events?


Speed dating events vary depending on the style, however, they all operate very similarly. We create these experiences for people to have fun when dating, to become more confident when dating and possibly find the one. Here at Speed Dater, we believe Speed dating is a great way to meet people, no matter what your age is and where you’re from, as we offer events to different age ranges in 24 cities over the UK. We also provide everyone with an event to match their preferences. We would never want to single anyone out, hence why we’ve created gay, lesbian and Christian events. We want to make sure that everyone can find their match. This article will explain the ins and outs of gay speed dating, how it operates and what to expect.


Gay Dating in London, UK


Gay dating in London is becoming a lot easier, especially with specific gay bars and gay events going on every week. This city is a great place for guys to meet other men in a perfect environment. There are some amazing places to do so; G-A-Y bar in Soho is a club that has events running every week so this could be perfect for some people. There are also many other bars across London that provide a night out alike to G-A-Y for men. However, if you gentlemen are looking for specifically gay dating events in London and something a little more intimate and personal. Well here at SpeedDater, we offer 1 to 1 speed dating sessions, providing men with a chance to get to know and chat with other men. Our gay speed dating events are great if you are really looking to find someone and have a night of relaxed drinking and fun.


The gay speed dating operates differently to straight or activity dating, with a completely contrasting format.


Firstly, if the host had 20 dates, they would only use 10 tables, numbering 1-10 down the left side and 11-20 along the other side. It operates like this because it is easier for the guests to move around and to avoid confusion. The men will arrive and be signed in as normal, but when they’re badged, it differs. Participant number 1 will stay seated the whole time, never rotating. The rest of the gentleman will move one seat to the left in numerical order. This can sometimes become confusing, but as long as number 1 is aware that they stay seated, it should go very smoothly. At these types of events, hosts need to be more alert and making sure that everyone knows where they are going to avoid people dating twice or the event messing up.


The rest is exactly the same as every other event we organise; the matching is online and men will receive the same type of scorecard so they can remember their dates and who they liked. They will then, as normal be able log on and check matches. The process works the same also, if you do not find someone you like at the event, you are entitled to a free event, exactly like our other speed dating.


Types of Gay Speed Dating Events in London


We hold gay speed dating events in London once a month at the amazing Village which is a gay venue in the heart of the city. It is very popular and everyone who attends our gay events loves the venue. It is also perfect for the format of gay events and allows everyone to move round the room smoothly. At the moment, we don’t run activity gay events, just the usual speed dating in London. We are hoping that at some point, we can expand and create more activity type events for all of our audiences.


Regarding gay speed dating in London, we currently have number of events coming up.


Above are the gay singles events that are live and ready for you to book, all of the details for each of these events is on the website, including; the location, how the event works, itinerary and who will be hosting the event. The host will know how the event operates, so if there are any queries at the event, the host will be able to help.


Not only do we have gay events in London but also now Manchester and Edinburgh, which is very exciting and means that people in these cities have more accessibility to these types of events.


Gay speed dating events have only just launched in Manchester and Edinburgh but we’re certain they will do well. The venues chosen are also perfect for a gay speed dating evening, providing enough space and tables to ensure that all the dates can move around comfortably. We eventually want to branch out and create gay speed dating in UK, not just London, Edinburgh or Manchester, but all over. So watch this space.


Conclusion


Gay speed dating is a great way for men to meet other men in a comfortable environment. We created these events to ensure that we’re reaching out to different audiences and to make sure that everyone has a chance to date and meet new people. London is a great place for gay dating and although speed dating is one of the best ways to meet people, there are also many other places for men to go to meet each other, including at our gay speed dating in Edinburgh and Manchester.
