Island girl Sally-Anne Thrippleton ticks only one box because "they've been a bit dull". When I leave, they are sinking their drinks like sailors on shore-leave. Then she adds, as if driven to forgiveness by Mother Nature herself, "It's not their fault." The chat continues as we stride back into Wroxall, where locals come out to stare as we pass. The following day it emerges that there are 12 positive matches, in addition to the two who snogged in the pub. They have come looking for love in woolly hats and clumpy boots - the keen, the hopeless and the sexy.Arriving by ferry, they swamp the pub in the Isle of Wight village of Wroxall in a fug of testosterone, before forming up outside in a crocodile and setting off for the countryside.A speed dating ice bar is coming to London just in time for Christmas, meaning its also time to brush up on those snogging skills.Courtesy of dating gurus Smudged Lipstick, a Connect 4 speed dating event will be hosted at Eis Haus Ice bar on December 7, giving you the chance to bond with a potential suitor over one of the world's least intellectually-minded boardgames and chilly temperatures.Our activity based singles events include cycle dating, quiz dating, singles cookery classes, singles wine tasting, singles walks and other outdoor dates.All our dating events are strictly for men seeking women and women seeking men in a different, fun and safe way.
