We arrived at a trendy looking bar for our first experience of speed dating in London. Date Nine- Two more to go, and it's clear the boys are getting more well oiled as each one approachs! It was a fun evening, and how often do you get to meet 10 single men in one night?!
We positioned ourselves by the bar while waiting for others to arrive, with one eye on the door to check out the talent (and the competition) as they arrived.
The two were seen embracing in front of the Eiffel Tower and out to dinner with friends in the pictures, and in another Lori shared a snap of an arrangement of flowers along with two large Fendi bags and three smaller ones, writing; 'Special Delivery #Happy Birthday To Me.'It was a difficult December for the funnyman after he misread the winner of the Miss Universe contest last month, a gaffe that he eventually fixed and which forced him to apologize to the woman he accidentally crowned.
Before we know it, we've started the mission of meeting 10 strangers for an evening timed into 3 minute slots with a buzzer to keep everyone on their toes... The conversation progresses to jobs, university, locations, holidays etc.
So here is my experience of a night of speed dating men! All pretty easy going and no awkward pauses before the buzzer sounded, and off he went to his next date. Date Three- Tom's mate, Ian, lived together, both blame each other for their appearance, claiming they were dragged along for moral support.
We spot a couple of potential single men together with some steep female competition.
The guys start drinking as though its last orders to ease the nerves, while the girls nip to the ladies to check the hair and make-up. Date Four- Richard, originally from Manchester, just moved to London and was hoping to find people to meet in his area.
