Speed dating young people london
‘In 2012, my boyfriend and I were on a break, so I decided to go along to a speed dating night in Richmond.
‘He started shouting in front of everyone and the room went silent. ‘Especially since he kept screaming, to the point where the organiser got up and asked us to ‘take it downstairs’.
‘This sounds pathetic, but I’ve never had a single match.
