While you were swiping

2 years ago 0 493

The internet, for all its naysayers and prophets of doom, has transformed the way people work and communicate. It has turned entertainment, retail and health industries from boom to bust and back again. But its biggest and most profound effect has been on the single (sic) biggest decision that most people will ever make—choosing that someone special. In those fast walking days of the 1990’s when people actually talked to each other, the idea of meeting a partner online seemed alien, freakish, sad, and not a little pathetic. In today’s brave new world of hunter gathering by swiping right, all those pathetic, alien freaks are considered, sadly, normal. Smartphones have put virtual stadiums full of meeting places in people’s pockets, where singleistas can mingle free from the constraints (and fun) of social intercourse or physical geography and safely roam without fear of failure. It’s the ‘now now next next’ society where

Busy..adjective :having a great deal to do: toiling at: labouring away: wrapped up in: occupied, engaged in..

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

Why should you choose One2One Introductions over other Dating agencies?

5 years ago 6 4732

  We admit to being impartial 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
