Speed Dating London

What to Know Before Speed Dating in London

The truth about dating is, a lot of time can be wasted, combing through dozens of “potentials,” searching for someone who doesn’t drive you nuts, snap their gum, or live with their mother.  In speed dating London singles have found a quick and exciting solution to just get you “out there,” and begin fishing around in a lake full of opportunity.

The principle is simple, and kind of fun.  Originally organized by a group of Jewish people to aid their singles in the dating process, speed dating involves a few elements.  A large group of singles meet in one place, and basically line up, receiving about five minutes per person to get to know them, and try to spark their interest before the timer goes off.  One by one, you move down the line, having just those five minutes to make an impression sufficiently great to be able to get the number of the guy or girl across from you, and hope for further follow-up.  There are many ways that speed dating London groups operate, but the principle is the same:  find someone you could potentially date.

 However, with only five minutes, it becomes a bit of a challenge to be able to present yourself in a way that will attract the kind of person that you are looking for.  Surely skill comes with experience, but a few tips before you go really can’t hurt.

Although the situation is initially uncomfortable, if you take a group of friends, you will be able to laugh and enjoy the situation, no matter what happens.  You are likely to run into something that makes you raise your eyebrows, and laugh hysterically with your buddies afterward.  But you never know what else you might find as well.  Do not go to a speed dating London activity completely drunk—if you only have five minutes to make a good impression, it might just be better to keep your head about you.

Try not to be fake—if you are out speed dating, chances are, you are looking for someone to be with.  Being superficial or fake is something that could cause someone to quickly delete your name from their list of possible fish, thus dampening your chances of actually finding something that could ‘work out.’  Present yourself as truly and politely as possible, and allow them to talk just as much as you do.  This experience should be an ‘equal opportunity’ one, and you never know what that might blossom into.

So save some time, get up your guts, put on your best cologne, and try out the speed dating London action.  You never know how quickly you could snatch yourself a good one.

Introducing Your Date To Your Friends

Most people value the opinions of their friends and most people put a friendship first in the priority line of a relationship.  Most people will not date a person their friends do not like as they are worried they will lose friendships if they date a certain person.  So what is the best way to show off your new date to your friends?  The answer is that it all depends on the way you have set up your date to your friends through your words.

What we mean by this is that if you always talk highly of your date to your friends, they will tend to like your date more because they know how much you like them.  On the flip side, if you always complain to your friends about all of the bad things your date does, they will be more inclined not to like your date. As you can see, the way you talk about your date makes a big difference.  If you really like your date, and want your friends to like them, really be careful about what you say out loud about your date in front of them.

The next thing to think about is the meeting place and the atmosphere that you are planning on having when your date meets your friends.  The best place is in a situation that is less serious and more fun.  This means it would be great to have that initial meeting at a game night or at a party.  The last thing you want to do is take your date to a fancy dinner with your friends as this can be a high pressure situation and make your date very nervous.  To avoid the meeting from going bad, a great idea is to take your friends out on a fun outing and have your date tag along.  This will make for a great atmosphere and will allow your date to be more like themselves around your friends,which will allow them to do what they need to do to win the favor of your friends.  As you can see, having the right situation can make all the difference when it comes to having your friends meet your date.

Identity Theft on Internet Dating Sites

A new threat has presented itself to the world of online dating. “Sweetheart Scammers” are on the prowl, looking for potential victims on popular internet dating websites.

The FBI has coined the term to describe identity thefts who lure their victims through dating websites and chatrooms. Once they’ve found the right person, they court them with gifts bought with stolen credit cards. Finally, the theft will send his new squeeze a fake money order which will ultimately result in money being drained from rather than deposited into their account. Identity thefts also use personal information found on dating sites to track credit card numbers, social security and social insurance numbers and other important information.

To avoid falling victim to this crime, here are a few preventative measures you can take:
Do not use your real name or personal information when using internet dating websites. Create a separate e-mail account when communicating with contacts you’ve met online.

Do not use your regular or work e-mail address as your username on any dating site. There are even some websites that use “double-blind” e-mail method, that restricts each party access to the other’s real identity.

When you’ve decided to continue communication offline, ensure that you are able to block your caller ID and don’t give out your work or home number. Both of these can be used to track your home address and other types of crucial personal information.

The Difference between Real Life and the Movies

There are many people that have a slightly skewed view on romance. Of course you want to fall in love and have the happily ever after that you so often see in a Hollywood romance film. Unfortunately that is sometimes not the case in all situations and it is important to set your expectations accordingly.

The problem is there are often young singles out there searching for true romance and while there is nothing wrong with that, the truth is there are many movies that lead you to believe that romance is actually something out of the norm and that for a true connection one must have roses, lavish hotel rooms and spur of the moment trips to Paris.

While many do have experience with relationships and do know that that once in lifetime is a very special feeling, others believe that this will happen to them with the next person that they meet.

Online dating has opened many doors to those seeking to meet the perfect match. If a motion picture romance is what you are looking for you can very well specify this in your profile and hope that either your princess or your prince are the next reader, but don’t hold your breath because that guy (or gal) next door just might make you way happier in the long run!

What to Wear on a First Date

Deciding what to wear for your first date should be as important as deciding what you’re going to wear to an interview because, let’s face it, that’s really what a first date is (but with cocktails!). The motto ‘first impressions count’ really carries weight in the dating world!

But before you get your panties or boxers in a knot, realize that you don’t have to go out and spend a thousand dollars to make a good impression. It’s all about what you want to convey to your date.

Think about your personality and what you like to do. If you are sportier don’t be afraid to show it! If you’re classic casual let it show! Fashion can speak as much about your personality as you want but remember to always keep it tasteful. No one wants to go on a date with a guy wearing sweats and a baseball jersey but it is important to show the other person who you are.

Another thing to consider is where you are going on this date. Wouldn’t it be awkward to meet your date at the movies and she’s wearing a tiny dress and heels? Or heading to a classy restaurant only to see your date sitting there wearing shorts! Movies generally call for casual dress, say jeans and a casual shirt – this look works for both men and women. Dinner dates can mean slightly more dressed up clothing depending on where you go, say dress pants and a casual shirt for men or jeans and heels for women. And most importantly when dating either online or not remember to be yourself, be confident and have fun with your fashion!

Online Dating Optimism

There is something that many don’t consider when it comes to online dating; Online dating is not a guaranteed way to meet someone that is going to be your absolute soul mate- it is simply another convenient method to help aid in that goal.

Many create a profile on an online dating website and truly believe that this is a formula for meeting a soul mate. This is not always the case. Like getting set up by friends, there are several outcomes that may result. Yes, you may fall deeply in love with the first person that you meet and you may be very lucky together in the future but chances are that you will need to go through several experiences before this happens so you must remain optimistic throughout the process.

Everyone (or at least most) on the online dating site are there for the same reason as you, they would like to meet someone to start and continue a relationship with. But with many different personalities, the chances of the first being a complete match is highly unlikely.

If you keep a positive attitude and start fresh with everyone that you meet online or otherwise then you will be much more likely to have an unbiased approach and meet the person that you have been dreaming about all along!
