Amélie

My name is Amélie, I’m a freelance artist and I love all things dating. Getting dressed up, the pre-date nerves, seeing sparks fly and watching people come out of their shell. There is nothing more exciting to me than seeing people leave with their shoulders back and a smile on their face.

Steve

Hi I’m Steve! A seaside boy, raised in Eastbourne. I’m 33 and I work as a freelance presenter. I’m a passionate England football fan, which I’m lucky enough to combine with my day job. You’ll usually see me wearing a pair of high tops, often in combination with a suit. You might spot me some place in the world looking on the ground for bottle caps. I love to travel. I feel at home on a plane, which is quite something considering I had a phobia of flying only a few years ago.

I’ve been with Speed Dater for a hot minute, now! I joined back in 2017 and really enjoy the buzz of running the events; everyone comes ready to talk and to meet new people. I love being part of this, as it allows for people to meet people who they wouldn’t normally cross paths with in their normal circles. In my spare time I’m usually in a book, drinking wine or doing something I ought not be!
