Reading slow dating
Tonight, I spent my evening speed dating in Clapham.
I chose Clapham because it’s an area of London where a lot of my friends live.
Unlike the Reading speed dating, where the boys had out-numbered the girls, the ratio in Clapham was 10 men to 14 women (though one girl didn’t show).
So this first friend sat downstairs, with some of her other friends, and instead requested I tweet updates after every date, so she could virtually follow proceedings upstairs!
We booked places at the Slow Dating event at Revolution on Clapham High St, and a few days later, I found myself making the 2-hour commute into London from my place of work, all in the name of 30 Dates.
I literally felt like I had spent two hours reassuring complete novices that it is possible to simply talk to a girl.
