Speed dating tips

We asked our ‘Date Whisperer’ Dani to give us her top speed dating tips. Dani has personally introduced over 42,000 singles at dating events over the last decade, so she knows what works (and what doesn't!). Here we go:

1. SMILE!
Smile and your date will smile with you. Projecting a friendly, positive and confident vibe will get you far. And not just in dating!



2. Don’t talk too much about yourself!
Sometimes nerves make it easy to get carried away but rein it in if things are getting too one-sided. Listening is an important part of any relationship so keep it balanced.



3. Avoid work chat
A lot of speed daters start their conversation with ‘so, what do you do?’. After the 10th person asks you the same thing you will get bored very quickly. It’s more much interesting to talk about what people are passionate about when they aren’t at work so divert conversation that way instead.
