When it comes to dating Londoners should be pros, we’ve had Tinder, Happn, speed dating, dating parties where you smell each other’s t-shirts, dating in the dark and now the latest, silent speed dating.
Brought to you by Sshhh Dating the concept is simple, you just have to stay silent. No small talk, no having to think of quick come backs or witty joke and no terrible pick-up line thank goodness. Why? Because it’s only when we’re silent that we can see what people are really like and if there is a spark, apparently body language makes up to 55% of what we’re trying to say – so unfold your arms.
The next event is taking place at Jam Tree Clapham on the 18th March and starts with a warm –up, so you don’t just sit there looking at someone feeling awkward because you actually have to look someone in the eye – which we know as Londoners can be quite daunting, just take the tube for example, it’s all eyes to the ground/phone/Kindle. And then it is a round of speed dating just without the talking.
Afterwards head to the bar, grab a drink and then you’ll actually get a chance to speak to your matches!
