You can see events advertised with your local Dates at Eight Hosts and Area Managers, as well as on our events page online and on our social media platforms.  When you book and pay for an event, you will then appear on the guest list with a link to your profile.  This means you can view who is attending and event and other people can see that you are attending too.  Just click on the links in the profiles, or on the events tab in the menu.   **this feature may not be available immediately for founder members.

The events vary in price, dependent on location and venue.  They will typically start from £25 which will include food unless stated otherwise on the night.  Dates at Eight works alongside third party event companies in the UK and similar businesses across the world to bring larger group events to the entire membership, local events are organised and run by your local hosts and area managers.

Here at Dates at Eight we do not have private interaction online, this is one of our key features to the club.  However, what you can see is the beautiful profiles of our members and of course which events they are booked on to attend. 

Via your hosts, you can also let other members know that you are going to an event and that you would be interested to say hi. 

Dates at Eight will pass that message for you. 

This site was formed for people who disliked the invasion that traditional dating apps allow.  The idea being that you can meet and get to know people in the more traditional way of face-to-face events, these are group events in great venues and a safe environment for all concerned. 

YES! Of course, they are, many of our members are founding members who have been with us since we started this journey of discovery in the dating and coaching world back in July 2020.  All our members apply and have video verification so that you can not only see but hear how they sound. 

Our team verify and “interview” all our members, all authentic here!  There will always be the occasional fake profile that is attempted to be set up, but as soon as this is discovered we remove, revaluate and take appropriate action accordingly.

Why Should I subscribe to Dates at Eight?  
Dates at Eight does not currently offer any free access to our club via free to upload profiles, we wish to be transparent from the start.

However if you choose to leave the club, your log in details will remain in our system FOC in case you wish to rejoin at a later date.  Your profile in this case will not be chargeable but will also not be visible.   

To take become a full member the current cost is just £30 per month with a 3 month minimum contract.  You must be a subscribed member if you wish to book on an event, show another member that you are interested in them or take advantage of the amazing life coaching online events and membership offers.  Once subscribed you will have full access to all the features and areas across the world on the site.

Our coaches, offers and events are openly viewable on our website, however if you wish to book onto any of our events or coaching sessions you must subscribe as a member.  Minimum 3 month contract applies.

Many of our members have no difficulty finding dates, but maybe just not the right ones, they are often looking for that special someone which is hard to find through online dating apps.  Life’s restrictions such as work, kids, and finances can often play a part too.  Here at Dates at Eight we aim to have monthly events with prices to suit all budgets, time to plan and get babysitters and fit in around work. 

You do not have the risk of “wasting” a night out on someone who is not right as you are going out in a group, so the worst that can happen is you meet new friends, the best is that you meet someone special, remember the people at that event may well have chosen that event because they have seen that YOU are going there too.  This is no pressure socialising with likeminded people.

This is one of the reasons we have no interaction on our profiles, if you do not want to receive any advances from a certain member then you can opt to block certain usernames in your settings. 

However, you can also see the guest list of all events so you can see who is going to what and make your choices accordingly.  If there is someone who we need to know about then contacting our customer support team with your issues is essential and we address the issues, as necessary.

As you browse our public website, where you can see our events, coaches, business affiliates and details of clubs near you, you will be presented with numerous opportunities to join our club.  Just click the link.  If you are already a member you will have an all-access log in to all parts of the members website.

The local hosted events are restricted to between 30-42 people, we are currently restricted by local and national government guidelines, but this works well for us anyway, 5-7 tables of 6 people at each group event and up to 24 couples at our first date events.  The events organised by third party events companies both in the UK and worldwide will be open to all members and will be largely dictated by government guidelines. 

There are only two reasons for this, you have hit the unavailable for dating changes, so therefore are no longer a searchable member for singles.  Or

Dates at Eight are reviewing your account after you have made changes – normally only effecting brand new members or those where a complaint has been lodged.

Head into My Account and Profile and hit “My Profile” to see what others see and make changes and upload new pictures and information

In this world, if you want to succeed it is important to be visible, this includes in love life and relationships!  So make sure your profile if fully filled out, chat to your hosts or area managers if you need help in putting together a great profile, tell us your likes and dislikes, be honest, be authentic, be YOU.  Add as many pictures of yourself that you like, these must not be filtered images or enhanced, remember you ARE going to meet these people so you will get found out!  Honest and transparency is the best policy.  Show up to events, you cant meet people watching TV!

Be descriptive and make your profile stand out!

As we have a policy of transparency and honesty, we do not allow profiles to be hidden if you are an active member of Dates at Eight as a single person.  If you are dating someone or want to take a break from the site, then please change your membership to a social member only, your profile will remain in the system but will not be able to be viewed, your subscription cost will reduce to social membership.  However if you wish to be visible again then your details will all still be in the system, simply email our team at with your wishes to rejoin as a single member and we will change your status within 48 working hours and then you can simply log back in with your user name and password you will be a full single member.
