Around 30 of us had gathered at Nordic, a Scandinavian themed bar in London's Soho -an equal split of men and women.

The speed dating formula remained much the same. We used an app Mixeo to record any romantic intentions and added book recommendations, too. The literary speed dating event.
Someone a little more literary perhaps. Prepared to defend Buckowski's misogyny while praising the economy of phrase of George Eliot? Then brush off your bookshelf, pull out that barely worn tome you bought thinking you'd absorb its contents through osmosis while it sat, never opened, between Zlatan Ibrahimovic's autobiography and Bridget Jones and get down to the wonderful Nordic Bar in Fitzrovia for a night of literary speed dating.

This time around I was on top form: He had a stone-cold look on his face as he sat down, and when I asked his name, he grabbed my scorecard and wrote his name down rather than telling me it, and he asked me to do the same. He wrote his name in big angry capital letters too.
Next he said, in broken English: Ok, I came up with the topic of films: I took another sip, and did it again. Then I inquired as to whether this was his first time speed dating. Then the whistle saved me. That entire experience did, however, make me question the number of male speed daters who turned up to speed dating alone.
