What's it all about?
Shhh lets you meet people in a playful and meaningful new way. It gives you the opportunity to deeper romantic connections without talking. It's an entertaining evening out with others looking for the same things as you.
Who is it for?
It's for professional Londoners in their 30s and 40s who want to meet meeting other eligible, like-minded humans in person. You don't need to be a particular sort of person to come, just open-minded and the tiniest bit adventurous.
Why is it unique and awesome?
Without words, you get the chance to have a really different experience of others. Past participants tell us they tend to date people for longer who they meet at Shhh Dating. Most importantly, it's fun and completely non-pressured.
Is it true there's no talking?
Yes there are parts of the night where you are invited to leave words behind though there are other times where you are welcome to talk. And at the end there's always pleanty to talk about!
How does it work?
The Shhh Dating format takes you playfully meet up to 30 people of the opposite sex through rounds of superbly hosted and carefully crafted games, followed by a non-verbal speed-dating section. After the event your matches are calculated and emailed to you the next day.
Can I drink?
There is no bar selling drinks here so you are welcome to bring you own!
Why without words?
The eyes are the window to the soul and scientists have shown that prolonged eye contact can lead to people falling in love. We spend so much time talking, this is a chance to drop the words and tune in to people in a different way. There's plenty of time to talk at the end of the night.
No matter if you make a romantic connection or not, people always leave our events feeling warm, relaxed and happy.

4 Things That Make Shhh Dating Totally Unique
1 No talking
All of our events have periods without talking. Because we talk all the time, because talking can get in the way, because we are tired of hearing the same old stuff. The truth is we are way bigger and more mysterious than can be said in a few minutes of talking (or a few pixels on a dating app for that matter).
Without talking (just for a bit) there’s space to really meet. People who meet and date from events tend to have longer and more meaningful connections. We want to know who is the person behind all the talking, and at the end of the night there is always plenty to talk about.
2 Eye Gazing
At all our events we do some eye gazing. There’s a reason they say the eyes are the window to the soul.
Eye gazing can make people fall in love in just a few minutes, it deepens bonds and it’s a great way to meet a potential mate. People can see the best in you through your eyes. We are the only dating company in the World that does this.
We love to play. Over the last 4 years we have created clever courting games to get you warmed up, happy and in the zone. Our expert hosts will have you at ease and playfully meeting and greeting each other like pros. The games are fun, easy and at Shhh Parties can take you to surprisingly delicious places.
4 You will Feel Great At The End

Our hosts make an atmos of playfulness and respect so that you are always treated right.
