Dangerous Date Night

Oh, it’s actually really cool!


I want to tell you my story.

For those of you who haven’t met me, I’m Charlie. A 32 year old Londoner who is bored to tears by the existing dating scene. You name it, I hate it. Blind dates, speed dating, Tinder, Bumble…. The list goes on. Each and every time I feel like a little part of me is ready to curl up and die… Now, don’t get me wrong. I’m a sociable person. I want to meet new people, do new things, go to new places, all in the company of other single people. You know, just in case there’s a spark! What I don’t want is forced, miserable, networking style events which I can’t escape from.

So I decided to host, organise, plan, invite and introduce! It’s been a success. We’ve had number swaps at every event! For those who haven’t swapped numbers it’s been a fun night anyway and I’ve met an amazing crowd of people. All of whom I’d happily go to the pub with for a drink!

However, there is still a stigma surrounding offline dating. I ask guys (and girls) what comes to mind when I say dating event and the answers are depressing: Cringe, awkward, bit like a work do…. The biggest comment by far from guys is feeling like their mates will take the piss. The events we run reflect that, there’s a limit to how much piss taking can happen when someone says they are going axe throwing or to play poker… Chaps I’m afraid to say it but women are braver – in this circumstance they don’t care what their mates think!

So what’s the next step, the grand plan? I need you to get involved and I want to give you some examples of feedback I’ve had from guys who’ve attended events so far:

“Oh, it’s actually really cool!”
“It’s great, you’re planning all the stuff I want to go to but can’t be arsed to organise”
“the TimeOut of dating events”

Excellent, so it’s not that lame speed dating event that happened in the 80’s, it’s a great night out with a great group of people, all there for the same thing. Fun!

See you there.
