March 15, by 7inheaven. From my own personal experiences, of being a divorced woman re-entering the dating circle, I have always tried to help provide both men and woman attending a 7 in Heaven Speed Dating or activity event , a comfortable and welcoming format for singles to attend alone. Women in particular feel the most uncomfortable attending alone. I encourage women to attend alone, as this is the best way to make new friends, both male and female. If you alert me when you arrive that you have come alone, I am always glad to introduce you to those that have already arrived. The reason I feel so strongly about this comes from one Friday night, a few months after my divorce, and long before I started this singles organization, I found myself wanting to get dressed up and go out on a Friday night, but all of my girlfriends were busy. But what was my alternative?
My co-host for the evening was Tom, a tall, assertive man who has worked with Rob Ryall, founder of Date in a Dash, for three years. As is speed dating tradition, the ladies are seated, as the gentlemen walk from table to table with about three minutes to find love.
The stereotypical characters are all there: Rest assured, the only company in my bed that night was a burger from my local kebab shop. After greeting the guests, it was on to the big speech. This is the most important part of the evening; you have to be charming, informative, welcoming and assertive. An alien took over my body: After all, setting up individual dates is both time consuming and expensive. Speed dating breaks the ice, gives you critical first impressions, and opens the door to future involvement for multiple potential partners in one or two hours.
Anyone serious about finding a partner enjoys a lot of practical benefits in the speed dating scene.
