Meet, play, love at London’s fun new dating night ‘Game Dating’
With the likes of dating apps like Tinder and Happn, it can feel like the search for romance has become… well, a bit too technological. On the flip side, some speed dating nights can feel a bit daunting.
Shaking up the London dating scene is an original and fun new concept called Game Dating. Having launched in Shoreditch last month, Game Dating is back this month in the hope of making matches in a relaxed and creative environment.
London singletons can leave their nerves at the door for a fun-filled evening of playing specially selected interactive games. It’ll be a battle of wits, wills and team bonding against a backdrop of DJs, music and drinks.
The concept has been created by people with backgrounds in psychology, events and team-building so the games have been developed to reveal more about a potential date than traditional apps and dating sites.
Explaining the concept, Game Dating creator and founder, James Smith said: ‘After being a user of dating apps and websites, I soon found I became bored of swiping left and right and that potential matches were not of a serious nature. Talking to friends who were also single, I began to develop the idea of Game dating. We knew how speed dating nights have been around for many years but realised it was a good time to look at starting a fresh approach to speed dating, rather than it being just a meet and greet, we could make the whole process less daunting and a lot more fun.’
