Chasing cars

LMFM’s Betty Clarke recently interviewed a man who’s mission in life is to turn singles into couples. ….’I just haven’t met you yet’…. “Matchmaking, for all its old fashioned and traditional values happens to be the new pub culture” says David Merren, owner of One2One Introductions. “It’s last year’s little black number and it’s this years fidget spinner. “Already we see people being much more open and brave about declaring that they met through a dating service, so gone are the days when a couple who had met through us would tell everyone they met in a Pub!” “This is 2017…not 1917… the days of dowries and selling off your first born for a heifer and a couple of acres are happily consigned to history- These days it’s a Porsche and a Leinster season ticket”! “Our clients (and by the way we don’t have many clients because if we did

Online dating and dating apps are designed to give zillions 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 attitude sums up today’s busy, Iphone attached at the lip generation singles who want to find someone, anyone, a partner, a lover, a soul mate so long as it’s this instant! However, despite the phenomenon of online dating which is used by almost 60% of singles, it’s actually, quite bizarrely, helping and encouraging the growth of one sector: Matchmakers! Why? My own view(well, I am a Matchmaker) is that because a lot of singletons are becoming totally disillusioned by computer algorithms –It’s a real case of “from Algorhythms to zero confidence in 3 dates” for some and it replaces human judgment, with many suffering from dating overload. It’s the kid in a sweetshop

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

3 years ago 0 1101

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

In the 90’s/Noughties it may have been…………….. The pub, niteclub, a match, a dinner party, your brother’s girlfriend’s sister, Copper Faced Jacks, Bad Bobs or Howl at the Moon? In the 70’s/80’s it could have been Blinkers, Club 92, Zhivago’s or Silks..or the rugby club, Perhaps it was the Dandelion market or a fondue party? And for the rest of us let’s try and remember the good ol daze of the Television club, Tara Club or The Teachers club, Mass or the Paddy’s day parade. Before that the Matchmaker ruled. Now…in today’s way too busy virtual techno Facebook, Twitterland of Instagram and Tinder where do you actually and physically meet someone? Swipe right, poke and emoji!!

OK we’re VERY biased about this, being the proud owners of One2One Introductions, so obviously we want you to choose us! Simples. 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 would never disrespect  internet dating. It  works very well for lots of people. You get a huge number of dates… if you need a huge number of dates. ..You meet ALL types

So how are those resolutions going????

4 years ago 0 895

For a single girl or guy there’s no lonelier place than a nite club 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. Suddenly Queen’s “Find me somebody to love” bellows and you’re all alone, again! “I’m never doing this again! It was the same last year. I’m getting too old for this. Why am I here?” New Year. New Me!  When was the last time you said that?  Last year probably. While many will resort to New Year’s resolutions  involving exercise or  good intentions, for singletons, their focus, at least in regards to resolutions, may be on how to find that someone in 2016. 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
