If you’re skeptical about speed dating then let Belfast resident Keira Bird convince you otherwise, as she met her husband…speed dating!

"Speed dating is the way to meet people. I had heard about it and was really curious to see what it all was about. It was a really relaxed set up and you’ll be amazed how fast the time goes!”

"My now-husband and I just really hit it off and chatted for ages after the evening was over. We swapped numbers and the rest, as they say, is history - that was four years ago! It seems to be getting harder to meet people nowadays, so I would recommend speed dating to anyone!"
