Brighton Speed Dating: How To Ensure A Reply To Your Message

Brighton speed dating might be just the start of a wonderful new relationship. If you find a match when speed dating, it is important to get in touch with that person quickly so that you can arrange a proper date. How can you ensure you get a response when you message them?

Although you have already matched at the excellent UK speed dating event you both attended, that doesn’t mean that all the hard work is done. You need to consider what comes next, and how best to approach contacting the other person. The wrong message – literally – at this point can turn the other person off and leave you with no matches at all. Some key tips to bear in mind start with the language you use. If you are texting, don’t using ‘text speak’. As well as being out of place, it is too easy to misinterpret the abbreviations. When contacting your speed dating match or matches you shouldn’t leave it too vague either. Suggest something concrete and definite – a place, a time and a specific date, or possible dates. If they can’t make it you can rearrange, but it begins the conversation on a good note and shows that you are interested in meeting up. If you don’t want to jump straight in with arranging something then make sure there is a point to your message. Make a link back to the speed dating event, comment on something you discussed, and suggest a way forward from there. It is a fine line between decisive and pushy, and you need to get it right if you don’t want to lose out.
