Dating in London: an anxious, hectic meat market of cold flesh? Or a smouldering melting pot of hot humanity? With Valentine's Day approaching, we're going to take Cupid's bow apart and look at what really makes the city's love life tick.

London Is Dating, with Conway Hall, matches up a panel of daters and dalliers to ponder how we meet people in London.

How does it differ to the rest of the country and other cities? How has it changed due to technology? How have sexual attitudes altered? How is it great? How isn't it? And what should change?

Ticket holders will also be invited to try our Londonist Lover-In questionnaire where we try and seat you with other like-minded people on the night.

Our panel includes: (more to be confirmed)
