Andrew summersgill original dating
Speed dating has been hot in London since the early 2000s, with events often aimed at niche groups－the under 30s, over 40s, tall men, petite women－but curiously, the capital's top speed-dating company only themes one event by nationality or ethnicity: Chinese speed dating."I don't know why the Chinese events have remained popular," said Andrew Summersgill, founder of Original Dating.Original Dating, a London based dating event organiser established in 2003, has launched a series of dating events powered by their new mobile app, Mixeo. Mixeo is a mobile app that event participants use to record who they have met and who they liked at the company’s series of popular dating events which take place at bars, pubs and restaurants across London.As they meet, clients locate each other’s profile on the app using a unique Mixeo number and afterwards select each other as either a ‘yes’ a ‘no’ or a ‘friend’ depending on their level of interest.The most recent one was held at the kitsch 1950s-style cocktail bar, Love Die Late in central London where 14 men and 14 women－an even mix of British-born Chinese and Chinese expats－chatted, mostly in English.They moved on every four minutes until every guy and girl had met.The lure of free drinks works as a surprisingly effective icebreaker and in no time a room of strangers is buzzing as if everyone has known each other for ages.
Now that our events are powered by Mixeo our clients can use technology to break down barriers associated with dating events.The company has imminent plans to organise large scale parties for upwards of 200 people along with themed events utilising the app’s functionality.Mixeo as an Icebreaker In a party setting Mixeo offers a simple but effective icebreaker.Maybe, there is a preference to connect with people with a similar background and values." Whatever the reason behind the demand, Chinese speed dating in London shows no sign of slowing down and Summersgillis organizing a Chinese evening every six weeks.
