London is Dating: City Love and Urban Lust

Dating in London: we ask how it’s great, how it isn’t and ask what should change.


Dating in London: a dive into a wide ocean of fabulous fish people, a smouldering melting pot of hot humanity or an anxious, hectic meat market of cold flesh? With February flushing our cheeks for Valentine’s Day we take a look at lovin’ in the city.

With a panel of daters and dalliers representing hopefully a lot of London’s lovers we ponder meeting people in London. How does it differ to the rest of the country and other cities, how it’s changed thanks to changes in technology and in sexual attitudes? We’ll ask how it’s great, how it isn’t and ask what should change?

Ticket holders will also be invited to try our Londonist Lover-In questionnaire where we try and seat you with other like-minded people on the night.
