So what's Shhh Dating all about?
Now in our 5th year, Shhh Dating remains one of the most unique dating events in the UK (maybe even the world). We know of a number of Shhh Daters have got married or are in long term relationships after coming to our events. Shhh lets you meet people in a playful and meaningful new way. It gives you the opportunity to deeper romantic connections without talking. It's an entertaining evening out with others looking for the same things as you.
Who is it for?
It's for professional guys and gals in their 20s and 30s who want to meet other eligible, like-minded humans in person. You don't need to be a particular sort of person to come, just open-minded and the tiniest bit adventurous.
Why is it unique and awesome?
Without words, you get a chance to have a really different experience than other dating meetups. Past participants tell us they tend to date people longer term from our events. We create these events for the purpose of fun, authenticity without any pressure.No matter if you make a romantic connection or not, people always leave our events feeling warm and happy, with a bit more inspiration in finding a more exciting way to date.
So really... there's no talking?
Well there are parts of the night where you are invited to leave words behind, though there are other times where you are welcome to talk. The eyes are the window to the soul. Scientists have shown that prolonged eye contact can lead to people falling in love. This is a moment to drop the words and tune in to people in a different way. There's plenty of time to talk at the end of the night!
How does it work?
The Shhh Party format takes you playfully meet up to 30 people of the opposite sex through rounds of superbly hosted and carefully crafted games. At the end there's time to hang out and talk to the people you like.
