Single and out of practise

Single and out of practise
I speak with a lot of singles who are at different stages in their lives when it comes to relationships. They’ve had a variety of experiences in their lives, and they are working through dealing with them.

Single and out of practise

Single and out of practise

It makes no difference; I’m still going to be someone who doesn’t listen to the negativity. I’m not going to agree with you when you say that all the good ones are taken, or that everyone has too much baggage. Your mates/girlfriends might let you wallow in this line of thinking, but I won’t allow you to.

You won’t wow everyone, but that’s ok and perfectly normal
. All you will ever get from me is encouragement to step outside of your comfort zone. That comfort zone is your worst enemy, not me. I’m going to  encourage you to put on your best outfit, stand tall, get your attitude right and go out and wow some new people. You won’t wow everyone, but that’s ok and perfectly normal.

Don’t worry if some people don’t recognise your beautiful heart. They’re not meant to be in your life right now. The one or ones who do see your authentic beauty are the ones who have also lifted their spirit to the realms where you now dwell.
Our dinners and events are simply a vessel for you to use to facilitate your growth and to expand your social circle. They are designed just for you to use to learn how it feels to be a single person in a mixed group again.

There’s so much to learn when you’ve been out of the single scene for a long period of time. You’re out of practise. You’ll learn you’re not the only one who feels way out of their depth. Those who are very honest with themselves will admit they are frightened of being hurt, taken advantage of, made to feel inadequate, not good enough or invisible.

We all know the real truth. It is inside of us. You just need to listen. Your inner guide will protect you from being hurt if you stay quiet for long enough to hear what it is telling you.

There’s no better investment you can make than in yourself! So, if you want to change how your life is going around relationships, start investing your time, energy, focus and even some dollars to improve it.

Poor me, or there’s no great men/ladies out there, or I don’t have time, or I don’t know where to go, just isn’t acceptable anymore.

A Table for Six

Are you too busy to prioritise your dating life?

Are you too busy to prioritise your dating life?

Each day is a new opportunity. I chose to make this day a great one.

Wise words from the inspirational Louise Hay. I’m always interested to hear the excuses that people use for not taking positive action to live their life at their highest level.

Are you too busy to prioritise your dating life?

Are you too busy to prioritise your dating life?

If you’re happy in your life and fulfilled in all areas, then you are living your best life. But if you are “too busy” then that is a choice you have made.
All the activities you engage in, are the result of your choices. You’ve copped out on living your life on purpose. Difficult family relationships, lots of small details that only you can take care of, a way too busy work schedule are eating away at your life and stealing your opportunity every day to live a life where you are fulfilling your destiny.

Take a little time to think about how you would really prioritise your life. Think about saying “no” sometimes – it’s allowed. You and your house/car/appearance/ don’t have to be perfect all the time. And who decided what is perfect anyway? Practise asking for help, delegating and taking time for yourself.

Fear is often what is holding us back from really living a life where we feel fulfilled. If you would like to look fear in the eye and see what’s really possible for you, decide today that you intend to take time for yourself to live the life that you came here to live, and to do it without ignoring your responsibilities are a parent, spouse or employee.

When you join, I take a lot of information about you, including your age group, occupation, how you like to spend your spare time and more. For our members, we co-ordinate the dinner group for you each time you attend a dinner. We ensure you will have some new people to meet, with members around your own age. Our goal is to put you with a group you will relate to, feel comfortable with, and people you can enjoy some laughs around the table. That has been a proven successful formula.

Contact us at A Table for Six to take a step in the right direction to meet other singles looking for genuine friendships and genuine relationships.

A Table for Six

Men- you need to know this

Men- you need to  know this

Do you want that woman to give you her number and actually catch up with you again? Well, you need to get her permission before you even ask.
Talk with her about the things you are passionate about. Find out hers, and find ones that you both share.

Men you need to know this

Men you need to know this

This will get her excited to share new experiences with you. It’s much easier for a woman to say ‘yes’ to catch up with you again when there is a clear reason. She needs to be able to justify to herself (and her friends) why she wants to see you again. She wants to know that she is making a good choice.
Meet her at our dinners here

If you have already talked about a great cycling spot with a beautiful view along the way, your antique MG car you love to take for drives, or a fantastic band who have a show coming up, you are painting a picture in her mind. Then, it’s much easier to say:
I’d love you to see my car, come for a drive next weekend, or ‘So, we are definitely seeing that show next week.’ and then pullout your phone.
Instead of…
“Do you want to catch up some time? or “I would like your number to meet up again sometime.”
Which invitation do you think she is more likely to agree to? Which one makes it more difficult to say no to”?
She is no fool, she knows what’s at stake. She just needs a reason to say yes. So, plant the seed of excitement and anticipation early on, you won’t need to try so hard to sell her on the idea of spending time together – she will do it herself.
Meet her at our dinners here

Dating worries?…not if you follow this simple plan

Dating worries?…not if you follow this simple plan

You are setting out of your house on an evening out. Are you excited and looking forward to having some fun and connecting with new interesting people?

Or, does the little voice in your head sabotage you before you even arrive by whispering that you won’t meet anyone you like?

Are you prioritising your dating life?

Dating worries?…not if you follow this simple plan

If:
you set your intention before you arrive at your destination,
you decide that you are looking forward to meeting people with interesting stories to tell,
you see yourself having a great time,
you are setting yourself up to succeed. You will be laying the groundwork for making new friends, dating and even falling in love to happen.

Expecting that the man or woman of your dreams will be there with outstretched arms waiting for you? You are setting yourself up to be disappointed and also missing out on a real gem.

We have all been guilty of judging. It’s a natural human trait. But it is self sabotaging behaviour. You meet some new people and make a judgement about them because of their hairstyle or the colour of their shoes. This moment of judgement could stop you from getting to know them and you could be missing out on a wonderful friendship.

Judging others is really only hurting ourselves. It’s no reflection on the other person.
“When you judge another, you do not define them, you define yourself. ” ~ Wayne Dyer

Do you notice negative things? Be committed to looking for opportunities that bring you pleasure. The delicious food, a spectacular view or the person you just met who gave you a tip about real estate. Notice the lovely smile on the person with the purple shoes.

And that person with the very different hairstyle, could be the most interesting person in the room. (There’s only a week between a bad and a good haircut)

Be committed to looking for opportunities this week

Millions of people have happy relationships- why shouldn’t you?

Millions of people have happy relationships- why shouldn’t you?

If you have been single for a while, perhaps you have registered on an online dating site.

Or maybe you have been out with your girlfriends or mates hoping to meet someone. You got excited at first when you received a lot of messages on the online site. You even met a few people for coffee or a drink. But they weren’t anything like you were expecting them to be. Or you may have dated a couple of them for a while.

Millions of people have happy relationships- why shouldn’t you?

Millions of people have happy relationships- why shouldn’t you?

But after knowing them for a time, you found that the information they had given wasn’t exactly true. They said they were financially stable, but then you found out they had nothing but debts. They said they were ready for a real relationship, but they actually were still living with their ex.

So you decided:

Dating means disappointment
Dating means hurt
Dating is hard work

So you decide to take a well deserved break from dating.

You fill up your life with friends, family, work and travel. – another two years pass by.

You notice your friends are finding their special partner so you decide to dip your toe in the water of dating again.

But your previous experience tells you that relationships cause pain.

Don’t build your conclusions on a narrow field of experience. Millions of people have happy relationships. And if some people can be blissfully happy, why shouldn’t you be?

It’s true that dating involves some luck, timing, chemistry, similar goals and values. But people fall in love everyday. So if it hasn’t happened to you yet, it means that you need to meet more people.

If you were job hunting, you wouldn’t stop applying for positions because you hadn’t found the right position.

Our dinners will give you the opportunity to meet other singles in person in a relaxed, friendly environment. It’s time to step out, act confident and know you won’t fail.

Like to catch up? It’s a big ask

Like to catch up? It’s a big ask

Have you ever been asked out for a meal or a drink and found yourself having a dialogue in your head about what could happen if you say yes? Would they fit in with my friends? Will they really “get” me? Would they make a good mother/father?

Oops, I think we’re a bit ahead of ourselves here. We are almost asking them to validate our very existence. Like to catch up? It’s a big ask

Sometimes it’s all tied up in other things. What most of us haven’t learned is not to make it mean anymore than it is.

It’s fun when you keep it simple. Life is a contact sport. If you are asked to catch-up with someone again, say yes to a drink or a quick meeting.

Here’s a quote I read this week-“If you think a person is boring, you don’t know them well enough.”

have fun this week…

Men, create attraction and relationship

Men, create attraction and relationship

Have you ever noticed, that internet dating sites out there….they show you a lot of photos of single women…

But how do you get to speak to them or meet them?

And for most single men, you send a message, but don’t get a reply?

Or, don’t have the chance to meet them!

We don’t think that is right.

Men, create attraction and relationship

Our dinners are a complete game changer, and we want to make meeting suitable women a reality for as many single men as possible.

Here’s the thing…you won’t get this service anywhere else because there is NO ONE providing an introduction service like we are.

What’s the difference?  The CORE of our service focuses on the one thing that is going to create your opportunity for attraction and relationships: Building rapport and trust face to face with the single women you meet.

A Table for Six dinner introductions have you sitting next to and across the table from three, (qualified for you) single women. so, you can easily look into their eyes, show your interest, intelligence, great personality and energy for life.

And the best part? Our dinners allow you to build relationships, without spending all day online sending message and hoping to get a reply.

Just the opposite – we co-ordinate the suitable group, and send you all the details of the where and when. It’s time savvy too…

Specially designed so that you can just enjoy going out to dinner and to meet three amazing single women at your table – every time.

Chances are, you’ve never had this kind of opportunity before. We’re changing the game and putting single men in the spotlight…It’s your time to shine.

A little trick to get you started with dating

A little trick to get you started with dating

It’s Valentine’s day in just 9 days and what better motivation to be pro-active about meeting new singles?

Would you like to get back into dating and meeting other singles?
Are you feeling like you just can’t get started? I have A little trick to get you started with dating.

A little trick to get you started with dating

A little trick to get you started with dating

I often receive a phone call from someone I had spoken to 3, 6 or even 12 months ago about our singles dinners. They loved the concept and felt it was the best option for them to meet other singles. But something held them back from getting started. From my experience of helping singles for over 16 years, I believe they are feeling overwhelmed.

I know the feeling when I need to clean the entire house from top to toe, or when I’ve had a break from exercising and need to get started again. Or even when I want to write another one of my blog stories. It feels like a huge task and I want to procrastinate about it. The hardest part is getting started.

There is a little trick that instantly takes away the feeling of overwhelm and gets me to take action right away. Ask yourself the question, “Can I just…? and then insert an action that is so easy that you are guaranteed to be able to do it even if you have very little willpower at the time.

“Can I just write the first paragraph?” If that seems too much, “Can I just write the first sentence?” After that I’d ask, ” Can I just write a little more?” One more sentence? I can always stop when I feel as though I’ve done enough and still feel a sense of achievement.

It’s a matter of getting some momentum going. Once I get started with something, the motivation usually goes up. I may not feel like cleaning or exercising or writing, but once I get started, my desire to keep going goes up immensely.

You can always continue and do much more than you started out to do. But, you will feel as though you are succeeding by starting out small.

To get back into dating and meeting singles, “Can you just…Phone or email me to chat about how it works? With 16 years of experience of helping Singles to enjoy socialising and dating again, I have a wealth of information and encouragement to share with you.

Or “Can you just….Go to your first dinner and enjoy the company of other like-minded singles?”
As long as you break it down into something small and achievable,  you can’t fail. You’ll achieve much more than if you do nothing at all. I know you will benefit from A little trick to get you started with dating.

Starting over after a breakup or a long relationship

Starting over after a breakup or a long relationship

Not sure if they are ready to go out?
I often speak to singles who have come out of a long relationship. Sometimes it is quite recently and other times it has been some years. They are not sure if they are ready to go out to our singles dinners to meet people again.

Starting over
Starting over after a long relationship or a breakup can be a very tough thing to do. But most of us have to face this in our lives in one way or another. Taking control of new circumstances such as the death of a loved one or the estrangement of a partner is important in turning your life around.

Starting over after a breakup or a long relationship

Starting over after a breakup or a long relationship

Most important things to do
One of the most important things to do is to give yourself new things to do to keep your mind busy. Your mind is a beautiful tool, so don’t allow it to dwell on the past too much as that will stop you enjoying the present. You don’t need to destroy the past, but to put it away until we are healthy enough to deal with what happened.

Friends and family
Surround yourself with your friends and family. If they haven’t already surrounded you with their love and support, go and see them yourself. They will provide comfort and remind you how wonderful you are.

Starting to date again
Starting to date again and meeting new singles after a breakup could be a little like getting back into the job market. Waiting too long can have people wondering if there’s something wrong with you. But the longer you wait, the harder it can be to get back into the world of meeting new people.

Meet in a friendly pressure free environment.
The healthiest thing to do when starting over after a breakup or a long relationship is to go out and meet other singles. It’s perfectly fine to be honest and let people know you are testing the waters. Many others have been through something similar and will understand how you are feeling. Our A Table for Six singles dinners are designed to give you the opportunity to go out and meet in a friendly pressure free environment.

The decision to date again
The decision to date again is a deeply personal one that only you can make. But rest assured that love walks on earth in many forms, and this may be an opportunity to teach another human being what it means to be truly loved.

Meet the best singles OFFLINE at A Table for Six

Meet the best singles OFFLINE at A Table for Six

Online dating has been tried by 51% of Australians. Or so, some recent statistics I read claimed.  Most of the people I speak to fall into one of two different camps. There are the people who just can’t bring themselves to put their photo and profile on the online dating sites. The thought of “advertising” themselves as available is just too unsavoury. And if they are in certain work positions, it makes it even more out of their comfort zone. You will Meet the best singles OFFLINE at a Table for Six.

The others are people who have tried online dating,
but for one reason or another, it doesn’t suit them. Your membership with A Table for Six is discreet. No photos on the internet and we only pass on your contact details if you give permission for us to do so.

Would you enjoy having your dinners all organised for you?

Some people find the whole process of online dating very time consuming. Going through profiles, taking the time to contact people with varying results. But a very common story I hear is that if they do finally meet someone in person for coffee, they are very often nothing like the profile or photo displayed on the online dating sites. Or else, after communicating for quite some time, when meeting, there was just no chemistry.

At A Table for Six, we do all the organising of the dinners, and send the confirmation details once we have a suitable group organised. You get to just go along and enjoy meeting like minded singles .

Avoid the scammers on online dating sites

Of course, unfortunately there are the stories of people who have been taken advantage of by people praying on vulnerable singles hoping to find a special someone on the Online Dating sites. One particular lady told me that even though she now knew that the person she had been communicating with for 18 months was a scammer, she was still missing his messages. He had groomed her for a long time,  knowing just the right things to say to her. Luckily, she eventually had some alarm bells ringing when he continued to ask her to send more money and she reported it to police. But she had already sent a substantial amount of money to him.

Meet singles who are looking for genuine relationships, just like you

The focus when attending our dinners is to go out and enjoy a fun, social evening in a relaxed environment. You should expect to enjoy chatting with other singles on a wide range of interesting topics while savouring delicious food and drinks.  Because of the more relaxed group situation, everyone can relax and be themselves.

Many times people have told me they met someone at dinner and had a connection, but if they had looked at a profile and photo online, they would most likely have discarded them. So many things are not definable when viewing profiles on the online dating sites. The way someone speaks, their mannerisms, their kindness and concern for others, their quirky sense of humour are only apparent when meeting in person in a relaxed situation such as our singles dinners.

Here is my favourite after-dinner recent feedback


“Can I start by saying thank you for the guidance and professional approach from membership right through to the days leading to the arranged dinner.
An exciting and nervous time pre dinner but it all felt very comfortable from the time I sat down and joined such a beautiful group of people. Though I did arrived late as the traffic was very heavy due to an accident , the group where happy to wait till I arrived to order.
The restaurant I’d rate a 7 , food was delicious and the atmosphere was fabulous, we all enjoyed the belly dancing.
I rate my whole dining experience an 8, we where all enjoying each others company and sharing in conversation. It really felt like we’ve known each other for long time.
I sat next to P and naturally engaged in more conversation as the night went on , we had so much to say and really enjoyed his company and sharing our common work industry.
I wasn’t sure what to expect but if this is an indication of what’s ahead I’m even more excited for what’s planned for future dinning experiences. It shows the careful selection and the quality of people that joins A table for Six .
I look forward to my next dinner .
