The one question singles hate the most at Xmas

The one question singles hate the most at Xmas

The one question singles hate the most! It’s the question that can turn any calm, confident, rational single into a rage and knock your confidence for six. And Christmas gatherings are the perfect opportunity for your Aunt, Uncle or distant cousin to toss that question at you.

Why are you still single?”

The one question singles hate the most at Xmas

It can make you feel as though you  are not a complete person because you are solo.

Perhaps there are some reasons. If you want to close one eye and peep at them to make sure they are not true about you-(of course they are not!), here are some possibilities.

You haven’t moved on from your Ex. You could be holding on to an ex-partner and comparing new people to them.

Are you taking care of yourself? It’s not about the label on your clothes or the brand of your shoes. But, making the most of your appearance by dressing with pride in your appearance, having a healthy body and an up to date hairdo can make a huge difference to your appeal.

You have become cynical about dating. Anyone who has been involved in relationships has had their share of disappointments. Learn to look a it this way; a failed relationship can teach you to notice red flags next time around. It can teach you to avoid someone with personality traits that drove you crazy in your previous relationship so you don’t waste your time with another partner who acts the same way. And remember, an open heart is very attractive.

Desperation is written on your forehead. It is an energy frequency that is very easy to recognise and isn’t at all attractive. Just take a step back, enjoy whatever you are doing and whoever you are meeting. You’ll be much more attractive.

Do you have too many things on your list of requirements? Everyone is entitled to have their own list of things that are absolutely vital in a partner. I’m sure everyone expects love and respect and to be treated with consideration. Honesty, decency and a feeling of being valued should be a given in a healthy relationship.
The type of car they drive, the job they have and the size of their clothes won’t make you happy in the long run.
Having common values and goals will make any relationship work better especially during times of stress.

Do you really want a relationship? Whether consciously or subconsciously, you may not want a relationship. It could be a time of recovery and renewal after the breakup of a past relationship. Or maybe, you just prefer not to have the attachment of a serious relationship. Sometimes, being single is exactly what you want.

Next time you are asked the one question that singles hate the most, tap into your highest energy, smile and say “Just lucky, I guess!”

A new partner or friends before Christmas? 62 sleeps to go

A new partner or friends before Christmas? 62 sleeps to go

Like to meet a new partner or friends before Christmas? I know you probably don’t really want to hear that it is only 62 days to Christmas (about 5,356,800 seconds). Has another year really gone so quickly? Can it really be so close to another Christmas?

Did you make a resolution at New Year that you would meet a new partner and make some changes in your social life this year? Somehow work and other commitments always take a lot of our time. We have the best intentions to be proactive and take steps to go out and meet some new people whose company we enjoy….but didn’t quite take the steps needed to do so.

The good news is that there is still enough time to meet some wonderful new people before Christmas at our A Table for Six dinners! And there will be lots of other singles with the same intention.

Here’s what Rosie said:
“I’ve met a wonderful man
5 out of 5, reviewed on Nov 08, 2016
The concept of A Table for Six is fantastic. For me the fact I get to dine in lovely restaurants and meet new people outside my network was enough to have me join.

Before I started I was certain it was time for me to start dating but with a hectic schedule, two children and not at all interested in online dating I knew A Table for Six was for me.
Margaret is lovely and made me feel very comfortable and calmed any nerves I had about trying this new idea.
After attending four dinners, I can confidently say, I thoroughly enjoyed every dinner. It was always a respectful and fun environment, everyone was so happy to be meeting. Although we were all meeting for the first time it often felt like we were old friends coming together.
On my fourth dinner was when I met a wonderful man. I knew from the moment I met him there was something special between us. He has a far more elaborate and romantic story.
After a few weeks Margaret connected us and we went on our first date, that was in June 2016.
We are now in a healthy, happy relationship. I am with a man I feel connected to on so many levels. Truly wonderful. I’ve recommended Table of Six to many friends in fact a friend who I had recommended to before I began ATFS, met her man on the second dinner and that was two years ago, they are still going strong!
This works and it will for you too.
Thank you Margaret. I’m grateful to say I found a wonderful man and I couldn’t be happier. ”

There are few things as exciting as your first dinner with A Table for Six. The newness, the uncertainty, and the possibilities are huge. This could be the night you meet a prospective partner, or your new best friend. It can be enough to make even a very confident person feel a little rattled. What should you wear? What should you talk about?

Meeting face to face over a meal is a tried and tested successful way of meeting. And you know that the people you are meeting at our dinners enjoy it too. Conversation will normally flow continuously and if you run out of things to talk about, there are enough people in the group to ensure you don’t have to feel under pressure to talk all the time.

Don’t hesitate to ask questions, as long as they are not too personal. Personal questions are best left until you know someone a little better. Remember to share your experiences as well, it is a two-way game. It’s good to find something you have in common, even if it is the brand of toothpaste you use or the type of music you enjoy. It’s good to find a connection.

Topics that are always suitable are any recent movies you have viewed, the latest app you have on your iphone or places you have traveled to recently. While the weather is good to fall back on, it is a bit overused.

Wondering what to wear to our dinners? I’m sure you would like to make a good impression. It is important to dress appropriately for the venue you are attending. Wear something you really love and that makes you feel good too. Girls don’t overdue the makeup or show too much flesh (a little bit is a good thing). Guys no jeans or tee shirts. A button up shirt and dress pants make a much better impression.

Your first dinner, and every dinner after that is always exciting. Mixed with the right amount of  good attitude and realism, it will be a fabulous experience. Make you dinners more enjoyable and fun using the tips and suggestions mentioned here.

Are people meeting the best version of you at dinner?

Are people meeting the best version of you at dinner?

You never get a second chance to make a great first impression. That’s certainly the case when meeting singles for friendship or a potential partner at our dinners. Research shows that within a few seconds, with just a glance, people have judged your level of success.
Within minutes they have even decided about your level of intelligence, trustfulness, worthiness, competence, friendliness and confidence.
Make sure that when someone meets you at dinner, they are seeing you at your best.

What does the way you present yourself say about you?
If you aren’t sure how to assess your own presentation, a great way to help you to think objectively, is to look at people of your own gender and age group (your competition) and also people who could be possible friends or partners. Looking at others is easier to help us clarify our own likes and dislikes.
Think about why you like this trait and why you dislike the traits of others. What is it that attracts you to them or turns you off? Is there something similar you could incorporate into the way you present yourself, or something you could eliminate from the way you are presenting yourself?
This little exercise is useful for the way we present ourselves physically, but also could be used to think about the way we present ourselves in our behaviour and our demeanour.

Remember, when people meet you at dinner, they are deciding if they would like to follow up and request your number to see you again. The way you present yourself at dinner provides them with clues to whether you would make a great friend or partner.
Make sure they didn’t miss out on seeing the very best version of you by looking your very best physically and also by presenting your best behaviour.

Meet at dinner? 8 good reasons

Meet at dinner? 8 good reasons

Who will I meet at dinner?
Before you attend our dinners, remind yourself that you may meet the man/woman of your dreams. But, even if you don’t, he/she may live next door to them. Or, you never know, he/she may invite you along to meet a group of their friends with lots of interesting singles. Someone at dinner may just inspire you to get involved with a hobby or interest you have been putting off for so long. They may inspire you to book that trip to Europe you have been dreaming of.

Meet at dinner? 8 good reasons

Meet at dinner? 8 good reasons

It’s important to be pro-active in  going out to meet at dinner, but it’s not possible to know how a partner may appear to you. The most important thing is to remember that even if you don’t meet a partner at a particular dinner, it will lead to new, diverse, interesting experiences you would never have enjoyed and discovered if you hadn’t attended.

This is who you will meet at dinner.

They are tired of Singles who lie about wanting a real, long term relationship.

They love these opportunities for Singles to meet at dinner where there’s no pressure and it’s all about having fun and making new connections first.

They crave meeting people and having that feeling of “Ah, these people really get me.”

They want to meet decent Singles who have dealt with their baggage and have an open heart.

They struggle to deal with Singles who just want to be able to tick off their list of requirements.

They secretly yearn to meet someone who makes the journey seem like the time is right, the place is right and the connection is definitely right.

They are looking for their new best friend.

They want to have that special connection with a partner who treats them with love and kindness, expressed through kind thoughts, loving words and kind actions.

Promise me you’ll always remember: You’re braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
— A.A. Milne
