Speed dating is a formalized matchmaking process which has the purpose of encouraging eligible singles to meet large numbers of new potential partners in a very short period of time. Usually advance registration is required for speed dating events. Men and women are rotated to meet each other over a series of short "dates" usually lasting from three to eight minutes depending on the organization running the event. At the end of each interval, the organizer rings a bell, clinks a glass, or blows a whistle to signal the participants to move on to the next date.

I'm not saying it couldn't work; however, I'm not interested in someone that much older than me.
But please bear in mind that the majority of people there will be within the age guide. Original Dating does not ask for your age when you book. Although we get many requests from women to run events for people over 40 unfortunately we have great difficulty in attracting men of the same age so it simply isn't practical for us to offer these events at this time.

You would think with a city full of singletons it would be easy to find a date for a Friday night. Sorry to break this to you but living in London is nothing like Sex and the City. Recently, these apps have left me with a low self of steam. The older I get the less matches I am getting. This is due to the age limit you set on the apps.
