Last night, as those of you who read ‘The One with the GSOH‘ will know I had a date at a stand-up comedy show.Tonight, I spent my evening speed dating in Clapham.And whilst I’ve never had the pleasure of living there, or even going for a night out in Clapham, the bars and clubs are infamous. It was in Reading, home of the Microsoft headquarters, and unsurprisingly the event was full of the IT Crowd. I spent a painful two hours being overly polite to complete strangers who wouldn’t even look me in the eye!
This challenge is fast making me a bit of an unwitting Dating Guru amongst my friends, and so when I posted my plans on Facebook at short notice, three single female friends quickly replied that they were keen to join the fun.
Class Speed Date are pleased to announce our brand new Speed Dating event taking place on Tuesday 14th Februaty 2017 at Core Bar Aldermary House 15 Queen Street, London, EC4N 1TX.
We hire the whole of downstairs bar for this Speed Dating event with a private bar.
Not wanting to write off Speed Dating entirely, and inspired by my current challenge, and the need to find ‘blind’ dates, I decided that perhaps the issue with my previous experience had simply been location.
With the exception of university and my time travelling, I’ve lived in Reading all my life, and at times I wonder if I’ve outgrown the town.
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!
