Dress in clothes that make you feel comfortable and attractive. For men, wear a suit, only if that is what you feel confident in on a daily basis. Otherwise, a clean outfit of jeans or pants and a nice shirt will work. For women, you can dress up or down.
Online speed dating gives you the chance to chat with other singles via webcam, in much the same way you would with friends, on Zoom, Skype or Houseparty. Straight afterwards you fill in a form ticking who you liked from the group you met.

Following each speed date, participants mark on a card whether they would have an interest in meeting their date again.
