Why choose ONE2ONE Introductions over other dating sites

9 months ago 0 225

We admit to being rather biased about this, being the proud owners of One2One Introductions, so obviously we want you to choose us!  And after all…….. It is our blog! But because we value  honesty  and because we believe you need to know as much of the truth about what you’re going to get into if you join a dating agency, the following may have some bearing on your filtering of choice. There’s  only two types of dating services these dates…(and we take it you’ve tried the pub/ club scene, speed dating, slow dancing  and even the dreaded dinner party set up scene) One is internet or online dating and the other is offline dating (that’s us Matchmakers and Introduction agencies ) We should/would never criticize  internet dating. It  works very well for lots of people. You get a huge number of dates… if you need a huge number of

Alternative facts or fake news? What online dating sites don’t want us to know.

10 months ago 0 348

Its late January 2017…Are you still sifting through the “alternative facts” (or as we in Ireland like to call it, lies) of online dating, hoping to find Mr or Ms Perfect-That Special One? And you know online dating works sometimes! You may even know a friend or two who found their lid fitted the other’s saucepan. But there’s a secret the online dating sites don’t want you to know. You see, the online dating sites work much like the lottery. They pull in thousands of people with the hope of winning money. Along the way, they let a few people win. Those winners invariably tell all their friends, and those friends go play the lottery thinking and hoping they’ll win too. What the lottery doesn’t want you to know is that the odds of winning are stacked against you. With online dating, the odds are stacked against you… almost as

The rules of Dating… Debunked!

10 months ago 0 276

Rule 1. There are no rules. For a single girl or guy there’s no lonelier place than a nite club or a party after midnight on New Year’s Day. You’ve done the 10, 9, and 8 countdown and cometh the hour, cometh the hugs and kisses. “Should auld acquaintance be forgot…” Just then Queen’s “Find me somebody to love” erupts and you’re all alone, again, naturally! New Year.  Just me January! And then there’s those New Year’s resolutions. For singletons, the focus, at least in regards to resolutions, may be on how to find that someone in 2017. Rule 2. Being single just means you haven’t found the right person yet. That’s all! Remember, its Disney’s fault that girls want the perfect guy and its Playboy’s fault that guys want the perfect girl! So here you are in the first week of January 2017..Chocolates and Tequila shots are off the

Life is what happens when you’re busy making other plans.

1 year ago 0 254

In old Irelands dark past when men were men and sheep were nervous a matchmaker made introductions not so much between marriageable men and women, but between their two families or clans. They negotiated the complicated deals that traded land and dowries against beauty and skills…and we’re not just talking cattle here. Nowadays, the process is just a tad different. Life, as we now know has changed somewhat since those ” heady, herdy, spit on your palm, fine girl you are, let’s watch Gaybo on the Late Late(sadly not everything’s changed for the better obviously!)” match-making days of the past. Today we want excitement, commitment, love, passion …and that’s only from a Pizza!! But how do we find someone special in today’s hyper paced “I want it all and I want it now” world of instant gratification. The answer to life as we know it is………  ONE2ONE Introductions! We can help you

Day One in the “Just haven’t met you yet/ lookin for lurve” house.. This online dating lark is easy, casual and you don’t have to dress for it, sloppy Joes and PJs rule, sans make up..even my hair’s a mess but sure who knows? So..I decided to join Matchmewithplentyoffish.com (I loved their logo “Cast yer net in the sea of love” I joined (only euro35 a month), put my profile up (My hook was “Let’s have a whale of a time”) and Tadah.. “I’ve got 65 messages, 123 winks and 4 marriage proposals (“And I haven’t even put my photo up yet..) “Are all these for me?” It’s the kid in the sweetshop syndrome.

And so the journey begins. You’re about to dip your toe into the deep waters of “The Dating Game”! With a bit of luck you’ll steer clear of the shark infested seas that are online internet dating sites and join a real Matchmaking and Introduction agency! (Hopefully you’ll pick us at One2One Intros). As you know, we meet face to face and spend time getting to know you, who you are, what your values are and what you’re looking for in a partner, as well as creating your personal and confidential profile. We ask you for a list of principles and qualities you would like to see in your “perfect match.”  It’s always tempting when doing this to dream up a detailed list of all the qualities that Mr or Ms Perfect match should have. After all, you don’t settle for anything but the best and deserve nothing less but

Why are we different to other dating sites?

1 year ago 0 274

We’re different. Because We’re not an internet dating site. We meet you face to face At a time that suits you At a place that’s near you We’re different Because We actually care about getting you introductions based on quality not quantity. Genuine , like for like introductions That match your match, Introductions that you actually may have something in common with. We’re different because We’re friendly, professional, discreet and confidential. We create a personal comprehensive, private profile that includes a PHOTO!! We’re different because We get results, couples meet and they have relationships. We’re small We don’t have hundreds of people on our books (we really wouldn’t be doing a good job if we had) We’re different because you’re different! www.one2one.ie    

Are Irish men of a certain age lazy, boring and hung up on box ticking when it comes to Dating in the real world?

  Firstly I need to say this has been written from my experiences with my Matchmaking and Introductions agency, One2One Introductions. Secondly, I’m the original born again poacher turned gamekeeper. Now read on.. I blame Irish Mammies for all this. From the time we were rug rats we’ve been cossetted, put on a pedestal and told that there’s “no one good enough for my son” and so we’ve grown up believing the myth. By the time we’re finished school and college and have entered the big bad world of commerce and earning mullah we’ve become so used to our elevated status in the natural pecking order of life that we tend to look at women as being “ONLY women” and “Sure what would THEY know anyway?. Aren’t we the greatest thing since sliced bread”? We expect too much from dating because we A…think there’s more of them than us when

From algorithms to zero confidence in 3 dates!

1 year ago 0 301

Online dating and dating apps are designed to give thousands of singles the chance to find dates on their own terms. It’s instant gratification for the “I want it and I want it now “generation. The swipe left and right attitude sums up today’s busy, time-strapped singles who want to find anyone, a partner, lover, soulmate in a hurry. However, despite the phenomenal growth  of online dating which is used by almost 40% of singles, it’s actually helping and encouraging the growth of another sector: Matchmakers! Why? My personal view is that because a lot of singles(especially girls) are becoming totally disillusioned by computer algorithms –It’s a real case of “from algorithms to zero confidence in 3 dates.” It also replaces human judgment, with many suffering from dating overload.While there may be plenty of fish in the sea it is a jungle out there! It’s the kid in a sweet

Ok Cupid..don’t be stupid.

  Last week BBC2 aired a documentary on Online scamming. If anyone watched it they would have seen a story of a man who scammed a dozen women out of more than £100,000 in a series of what officers described as “internet dating and romance schemes.”i.e. internet dating scams! Yes, those very online dating sites that you subscribe to in dear ol Ireland? No! Say it ain’t so?.. surely that could never happen here!…but it does! Believe me. So, apart from the financial woes of being scammed, your emotional wellbeing won’t be altogether healthy either and is at risk if your emale or online beau is dishonest about their relationship status. There is no telling who is on the other end of that connection when you are online. Can you tell the difference between Arthur and Martha online? A Guardian article recently discovered that around one third of men using
