It's a fast-paced world out there, and many people spend so much time running around their careers and social lives, they don't stop long enough to find 'love'.
Singles Speed Date of Canterbury organises events throughout Kent, and maintains a fresh approach to matchmaking.
The idea of speed dating utilises this wam-bam pace of ours, and gives people the chance to focus, chat, move on, focus, chat, move on.. until maybe one person slows the scene down, the music fades, their eyes meet... this one could be worth investing some time in.
And the beauty of it is, you don't even need to ask them out face to face - you fill in a little form of possible matches and in the ultimate my-mate-fancies-you approach, look your results up the next day on the website.
As one of our own Members here at The Best Of Canterbury, it's always worth looking out for any Special Offers they may have going, especially if you're after someone to cosy up with this winter.
Certainly check out the Singles Speed Date website to find out more about how their events work, and to read some of their charming success stories.
When speed dating first took off, I admit I wasn't a fan - for someone who was nervous of small talk, the thought of several few minutes' introductory chats filled me with dread. However, I'm older, wiser, much more confident at networking (which is essentially all it is), and would seriously consider registering with an agency like Singles Speed Date. Were I not in a committed relationship already of course. (Sorry, darling)
