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

If one synchronised swimmer drowns do the other have to follow?

What we do on or before dates that maybe we really shouldn’t! Let’s face it.. whether you’re a newbie to all this or have even had a date or two in the not too distant past, going on a date can be a total head wrecker! A date SHOULD be fun, enjoyable and perhaps have that ‘let’s do this again feel about it and who knows where it will lead to..but what about the what if’s and maybe’s and if only’s so the following should be taken with a strong coffee and a pinch of salt. To Google or not to Google? Everybody Googles everybody! And while it’s fine to get some little background about him or her before a date sometimes a little knowledge is a VERY dangerous thing. I had a bizarre situation where I arranged a date with …let’s call them Frank(Abernathy for confidential reasons!) and Mary.

Nostalgia ain’t what it used to be!

Why is it so hard to meet someone these days? Finding someone in the Seventies, Eighties and Nineties just wasn’t a problem. You could meet someone in the supermarket because it was a relaxed place to bump into and maybe flirt (now there’s a lost art!) AND without fear of the PC Police over the freshly baked bread cheekily utter “Don’t squeeze me til I’m yours” Gallantry ruled and real men opened doors and ladies actually replied with a Thank you! If it rained (which was a constant) you’d offer to share your umbrella. Bus stops were where the action was and love stories began (or was that Zhivagos?) You could talk without loudspeakers in pubs to other people without googling them! In those fast moving days we enjoyed a mad thing called… reality! You went to discos and niteclubs to meet someone. You asked a girl out by walking

The rules of Dating… Debunked!

3 years ago 0 757

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

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!!

So how are those resolutions going????

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

Pessimistic man seeks depressed lady to have really shite times

4 years ago 0 814

In old Irelands past a matchmaker made introductions not so much between marriageable men and women, but between their two families. They negotiated the complicated deals that traded land and dowries against beauty and skills…and we’re not just talking cattle here. Happily nowadays, the process is just a tad different. In today’s Ireland, life has changed somewhat since those ” heady, herdy, spit on your palm, fine girl you are” match-making days of the past. Today we want excitement, commitment, love ,passion and a villa on a Portuguese golf course wouldn’t go amiss. But how do we get all this in today’s hyper paced “I want it all and I want it now” world of instant gratification. Well…..the winner is……………………………..  ONE2ONE Introductions! We can help you meet that someone special . We are not an online dating service and we’re not a “let’s make a quick buck” service. We only make
