Speed Dating In Oxford: Don’t Just Talk About Yourself

Speed dating in Oxford, when run by professionals who know exactly what they are doing, is a safe and exciting thing to do. You could meet anyone – a new friend, a lover, someone to share your free time with. It isn’t just about romantic love if you don’t want it to be.

One thing that is extremely important when you try speed dating is making the right impression. You should always be yourself of course, but you need to be the best version of yourself. You want the people you are speaking to – and in particular the people who you like the most – to match with you, so that you can meet again. This means that all important first impression must be a good one. Dressing in the right way is a great start, as is smiling and being interested in what people are saying. But something else that is important to remember when attending a speed dating UK based event is not to talk about yourself the entire time. Although the person sitting opposite you wants to know about you, that doesn’t mean that you should dominate the entire conversation with information just about you. Answer their questions, but also remember to ask your own when you have finished answering. This forms the basis of a great conversation, and if you have pre-planned some questions then there will not be any awkward silences. You can ask the same questions to everyone you meet, and you will get different answers each time.

Listening is just as important as speaking when it comes to speed dating in Oxford.
