Speed Dating In Cardiff: Don’t Forget To Smile!

Speed dating in Cardiff could be the perfect solution for you if you find that you don’t have time to meet people due to work or home commitments. It is fun too, and there are no expectations, so you can go along for a night out and leave it there.

Here are a few tips for your first encounter at speed dating UK wide, to help you make a good first impression. One of the most important things to remember is to smile. It may sound a strange thing to remind someone, but speed dating can make people nervous, and that means they can easily forget to smile. Remember that the majority of individuals at the speed dating event that you are attending are in the same boat – they are not likely to have met each other before, and everyone is a little nervous; it’s only natural. As well as smiling, keep an eye on your body language in general. Keep yourself open and show an interest in what is being said by leaning forward slightly rather than gazing off into the distance, leaning back or folding your arms. The latter is a sure side of defensiveness and lack of interest, which is unlikely to result in a match or new friendship. As well as being interested in what your date is saying, it is important to answer their questions politely (and truthfully) if you are going to increase your chance of the encounter ending positively. All this helps the person sitting across from you to form a good first impression of you.
