Slow dating is a variation of speed dating where timings are not considered as important, and the emphasis is on making sure you meet everyone in the room, but at your own pace.
With this in mind, there are fewer participants at a slow dating event, a minimum of 10 (5 men and 5 women) and a maximum of 14 (7 men and 7 women). This is to allow each person the time to discuss what is important to them without the constraints of a bell ringing every 5 minutes.
Other differences between speed dating and slow dating are locations. Speed dating events tend to be carried out in bars, whereas slow dating events benefit more from the quieter surroundings of a comfortable hotel lounge or an art gallery on a Sunday afternoon.
