I will try anything once. Literally. Of course speed dating was on my bucket list of things to do before I turn 25! There's lots of speed dating events to go to in London and once I'd coerced a friend to go with me it was on. Whilst I wasn't on the hunt for true love I was curious to see what these types of events would be like and if the talent would be worth it.

My friend and I were nervous, but cue the wine and dutch courage we were ready to have a good time and boy did we meet some men! The girls stayed seated and the men would rotate seats after every 4 minutes. The conversation generally started with the banal niceties and 'what do you do?' and 'what are your hobbies'. Nobody I would really consider seeing again although one brave soul did put his number in my phone whilst it lay on the table!

Getting back into the dating scene or even just getting started on dating can be daunting, speed dating can be a bit of an ego boost and really just a reminder that it shouldn't be all that frightening talking to someone new or a stranger in a bar. Even just as a girls night out, I would recommend it, it was fun and different. 5 I'm off to check off my bucket list!
Home girl and at the speed dating event!
