3 Weird And Wonderful Ways To Bag A Date This Spring

Tired of Tinder? Well you might want to consider one of these (How shall we say this? Unusual) dating events instead...


The World’s Biggest Ping Pong Date

Step away from the chocolate egg (if you can – we’re not so sure we could…) on Easter Sunday evening, and hotfoot it down to Bounce in London’s Holborn for the killer combo of cocktails, flirting and, er, ping pong. Nothing like a bit of friendly competition to get those sparks flying. And you could even help break the World Record for the biggest ever ping pong date. Now that’s something to tell the grandkids…





Pheromone Parties
Forget love at first sight ’cause this is all about smell… Or body odour, to be precise. Based on the theory that we all give off pheromones to attract the right mate, these East London events see would-be daters sleep in the same t-shirt for three nights and then bring it along with them so that they can all take a big whiff of each others’ and see if they like what they smell. Sounds totally gross to us, but we guess it would definitely break the ice… 



Shhh Dating
This is speed-dating with a twist – you can’t actually speak to each other, so your body language has to do all the talking instead. There’s a warm-up before things start and then lots of silent flirting games and eye gazing to contend with. Sounds like it could be a laugh but you will probably need a (large) glass of wine to loosen up first. At least you won’t have to deal with any awkward silences, though…
