In London, speed dating is great for creating a wider network of friends, and maybe even finding a partner. If you’re feeling a little nervous about speed dating, below are a few guidelines to help make it a more fun and rewarding experience:


Meeting anyone, let alone that special someone, can sometimes seem an insurmountable challenge. If you’ve passed the bar and club stage, have limited options at work, and are yet to spot any potentials at the gym, then perhaps online dating is for you. While it may feel a little strange at first, there are some definite advantages.


It’s common practice to imagine our ideal partner, and with a first date on the agenda, the anticipation of meeting someone who might be ‘the one’ can often lead to unrealistic expectations, or make us so nervous that it all goes awry. First dates can be stressful affairs for both participants, so it’s good to remember this, and avoid being too quick to judge someone negatively.


So now you’ve taken the leap and joined an online dating site, the next step is to create a profile that will not only promote you as the fabulous person that you are, but that will stand out amongst the hundreds of profiles on the site. One tactic is to think professionally. Imagine the profile as being a bit like a personal resume and put time and effort into creating one that’s likely to be effective.


If you are feeling very keen to meet a special friend or partner, setting up your profile on an online dating website can help you achieve your aim a little faster, but rushing romance can lead to disappointment. Be patient - you might meet lots of different people whose company you enjoy, but who might not be potential lifelong partners for you. Try to be realistic and keep a cool head, recognising that true love does not always come instantly.


As a visitor to London you have obviously proved yourself adventurous enough to travel a long way from home, but you might also find that you have a new challenge - dating in the UK certainly is different from what you are used to. If you are an Aussie in London, you might need a few tips to help you:
