About Speed Dating in Bath Events
At one of our Bath Speed Dating events, you will have four minutes to chat to each date. Four minutes is long enough to see if you click with the person you are talking to and whether you would like to see them again and also short enough if you don't. At the end of each date you have a brief few moments to make some notes on the person you have just dated. This is something to help jog your memory for the post event matching process the next day.

What if I like another speed dater at a Bath Speed Dating event?
As it’s extremely likely that you will like lots of other people at one of our Speed Dating in Bath events - the difficulty is choosing who you would really like to see again. Use your Speeding Ticket to make notes at the end of each date and tick the people you like and want to see again. The next day or so, simply sign on to the website and tick the people you want to see again.

How many dates will I get at a Speed Dating in Bath event?
You will normally get between twelve and fifteen dates at a Speed Dating in Bath event, depending on the venue location. Occasionally we go up to twenty dates. Any more and you would probably be exhausted.

The Speed Dating in Bath is a speed dating event brought to you by Slow Dating on www.slowdating.com
