Speed Dating In Southampton: It’s Okay To Go With Friends

Speed dating in Southampton offers everyone the chance to meet people they may never have met otherwise. If you are busy at work or home, events like speed dating mean you can go out and have fun and possibly meet your future partner. You just don’t know, and that’s part of the fun!

Some people may feel intimidated by the idea of going to a speed dating event. They may be shy or feel that they are just not confident enough on their own to make a good enough impression. If this is the case, then it is perfectly acceptable to take a friend, or even put together a group of friends to go. Attending a speed dating UK based night with your best single friends can even make it more fun than if you had been on your own. Plus it means that when you arrive you won’t feel out of place or awkward because you have no one to speak to. However, if you do take friends with you it is important to not just stick with them all the time. Before the event starts, there is usually the opportunity to mingle at the bar, for example (depending on the venue). If this is the case, use that time wisely and don’t huddle together with your friends if at all possible. Going up to the bar and talking with the people there will boost your confidence, and you will get a head start when it comes to deciding who matches with you.

Whether alone or in a group, speed dating in Southampton is a great way to spend an enjoyable evening.
