THE LOVE Doctor’s Fix A Date nights could be your remedy for romance.

Friday night flirting in bars is commonplace around the globe, but a Brighton-based Love Doctor, whose real name is Neil-Monticelli Harley-Rüdd, has devised a new formula which he hopes will help singletons in Sussex find romance.

Monti, 52, who has almost 40 years’ experience in playing cupid, says many men, and a handful of ladies, are constantly narrowing down their search for love because they seek someone special to be much older or younger than them.

With this new formula, Monti asks four groups of overlapping ages meet in separate bars, they then merge into two groups at a new bar and then the entire group of singles meet in one final bar.

If they like each other, they text Monti their name and the name of the person who they would like a date with.

The next day Monti arranges dates without revealing any phone numbers.

Monti said: “ offers the unique opportunity to meet new people offline, so that you invest less time in trying to find romance online and have more fun with it in person.

“One night of flirting fun, about an hour in three different bars and lots of new faces for dating face-to-face is how I hope new romances will blossom.

“Our Fix A Date nights are in contrast to Speed Dating, because you have the option to bring a friend. In each bar there are no potentially uncomfortable one to one situations, but always a group.

“This means not only can singles meet organically but also the conversation and ambience is equally relaxed, with no pressure to try to convince people swiftly that they should date you.

“Even if a Fix A Date event does not work out immediately, at least you get to know new people and have an enjoyable experiences with like-minded singletons.”

Recently, the Love Doctor has teamed up with dating expert expert Angela Watson to organise a “love bus” to take singletons from all over UK to the world’s first Singles Expo, which takes place at the NEC in Birmingham from June 29-30.

Monti told The Argus: “Angela approached me to help her with the Dating Show Live.

"She asked if I could host an Arabian night or Caribbean party event at the expo. I came up with the idea of a Love Bus. We have teamed up with the bus company, National Holidays.

“We will be taking people on a coach from all over the UK, including Brighton and Hove, to go to Birmingham.

"The number of buses heading to the Live Dating Show will depend on the number of people who sign up for the Love Bus.

"I strongly encourage people to go to the expo, meet people face-to-face, build up confidence and find true love.

The next Fix A Date event in Sussex will take place on February 22 and March 8 in Worthing. Go to for more information.
