So we have two questions for you. 1. Are you single? 2. Do you like scary stories?

If the answer is yes to both, or just yes to the single part, have the event for you.

I know what you’re thinking, an event for singles sounds like awkwardness personified and brings up forgotten memories of standing at a school disco with boys on one side and girls on the other. But this event is matchmaking with a difference.

ghost-stories-header-4 has a ridiculously high success rate for couples – the biggest of dating sites put together.

And as it’s nearly halloween, this is the perfect event for you horror buffs out there. You can hear spooky stories in a theatre, and have single people around you to cuddle if it gets too much. With a load of food and drinks thrown in as well, what else do you need? Apart from a cushion to hide behind…

If this sounds like your kind of night, get down to Verve bar (1 Upper St Martin’s Lane, WC2h 9NY) this evening, between 6-7 for a free cocktail and chance to scope out whose shoulder you could be hiding behind. Tickets are £35 and available from
