Friends Dating – New Ways to Make Friendships Comes To Brighton

Friends Dating, a unique concept from Brighton-based Love Doctor Monti, will soon be coming to Hove offering those in Sussex the opportunity to improve their social life.

Two themed events, ‘Fitness & Sport’ (26 July) and ‘Foodies’ (3 August), are both inspired by the success of Speed Dating. However, the appeal is not just for singletons.

The emphasis of these friendship-facilitating events is for participants to potentially extend their social circle. They offer the excitement of being able to mix, mingle and create new friendships.

Yet if there are any sparks flying, the Love Doctor as host can step in and play Cupid. So there could be love in the air as well as the focus on making new friends with a similar interest.
Each ‘Friend Date’ lasts six minutes with tables sporting conversation starter cards to help those who may feel nervous, with an organised mingle after everyone has finished chatting one-to-one.

With remote working now becoming more prevalent, Sussex people are finding it more difficult to socialise because making connections and regularly catching up with friends is not happening.

It’s not just those working remotely, but also newbies to the area and others who may be struggling to organically form new friendships that these events should appeal to.
The event at the Freemasons (Western Road, Hove) on 26 July is geared towards those with an interest in ‘Fitness & Sport’, with a drink included in the £15 ticket price.

Amici restaurant (Blatchington Road, Hove) hosts a ‘Foodie’ event on 3 August, with a drink and slice of freshly-cooked pizza served during the event.

Love Doctor Monti explained: “Socialising has got even more difficult recently, with work patterns altered and the cost of living resulting in friends constantly putting off a catch-up for a coffee or a drink.”

“Basically this is speed dating but with the script flipped. People are there to upgrade their social circle by finding good friends, although there is the bonus for singletons to possibly unearth a potential partner.

“A meaningful romantic relationship is built on a plethora of aspects, which includes being best friends. At the end of the day this platform is ultimately there to guide everyone towards even more happiness.”

Other themed events are being lined up in Sussex this year, including ‘Art’, ‘Lesbians’, ‘Movies’ and ‘Travel’.
