If you're hoping to stay up all night to get lucky, the scheduled slow dance at 1.45am might get you and your chosen one in the mood.
Just look at your friends: what a wonderfully diverse group of liberal, cool, opinionated, engaged, open-minded, creative, talented, attractive people! These quirky dating events will help you overcome those initial awkward encounters by providing both alcoholic lubrication and an easy opening gambit.
The problem with dating in London isn't that there aren't lots of beautiful people out there, it's that we're incapable of talking to each other without some common ground, or a belly full of booze.
Shhh Dating There's no need for awkward small-talk at these unconventional silent speed-dating events. In the first you can mime, squeak and gesticulate but in the second there's total silence; only staring into each other's eyes is allowed.
At the end you'll get to mingle and bring out the excellent conversational skills you've been bottling up all evening.
