SlowDating is an unusual name choice for a speed dating company, but the idea behind it is that the speed dates last a little longer than is usual. Whilst most speed dating events give you 2 or 3 minutes to chat before you move on to the next date, Slow Dating gives you 4 minutes. That might not seem much time, but it’s a big increase in such a high speed environment.
The site doesn’t charge for membership, rather it acts as a shop for purchasing tickets to events. However, you can also check out members, photos and more. The success stories and member feedback is very positive, suggesting that events are relaxed and fun to attend, which is always nice to hear.
During a dating event you’ll speak to around fifteen to twenty people, depending on how large the event is. Your four minutes go quickly, but they give you an opportunity to quickly get an idea of whether or not you’d like to speak with someone again. If you meet anyone you like, you simply tick their name. If they’ve done the same then the Slow Dating team let you know that you’re a match
Events aren’t just a trip to the pub. You will find a variety of locations and activities. So, it’s worth taking a good look at the events directory to see what’s going on near you. You can find events based on your location or when you’re hoping to attend. If you’re looking for a good night out then you can even check out whether there’s an event running tonight.
There are a few website features on SlowDating.com which you can explore whilst online. These include a matching system, which suggests members who might be suitable for you. You can then explore their profile, or even get in touch to chat before meeting.
If you’re interested in learning about the dating scene, you can check the site’s shop, which has books and merchandise available. You can also buy gift vouchers for friends and family, which is a good way to get them along to an event with you if you’re not keen on going alone.
The website is simple to use and navigate, so you shouldn’t have any issues. If you do encounter a problem then you can check the site’s FAQ or get in touch with a member of the team. The site is also accessible on your mobile device and you can check out a few links to speed dating in the UK, or speed dating in London if that’s where you’re based.
For more mature members who aren’t interested in meeting a lot of 20-somethings, you can access the site’s 40+ section, which runs events and hosts members who are a little older.
Prices for events will vary, but they tend to be around £22 to £24. This can go up or down, depending on the kind of event you attend. For example, a wine tasting session might cost more than a meet up in the park. Generally, prices are slightly above average, making this service one of the more expensive services we have reviewed. The difference is small, though, so if you do go to an event and enjoy yourself, it shouldn’t really be a deterrent.
