While you were swiping

2 years ago 0 490

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

What if this is as good as it gets?

3 years ago 0 591

In today’s social media driven mad world of Online Dating sites , ONE2ONE INTRODUCTIONS stand out from the crowd. Why? Because we’re NOT an online dating site! Now read on…. Dating is supposed to be fun – meeting new people, going to exciting places, that spark, that frisson of where things just might lead to…However, reality bites bitterly. After the initial first bloom of hope and expectation  you believe these apps resemble a sweet shop-Wow..’are all these for me’…sadly reality bites. This isn’t exactly ‘Vorsprung durch Technik’ and soon you’re believing  you’re working in a sweat shop; traumatic, time consuming and getting nothing out of it! Online dating sites and apps  are full of an never ending algorithm of babbled dialogue with mono syllabic replies fed by the genuine, the lonesome, the cheating and the gullible who trawl through a sea of profiles (coz there’s plenty of fish out there)

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

3 years ago 0 1077

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!

3 years ago 0 755

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

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

One2One Introductions would be your perfect match! We’re upfront and we front up. We don’t play offside.(apologies Ashley Madison) We’re professional,we play hard and work hard to get a result. We don’t let our clients kick for touch when we know there are opportunities for them on the pitch. We’re not afraid to get down and dirty looking for a like for like match. We try hard to convert singles into doubles for a great result. We go face 2 face, shoulder 2 shoulder and toe 2 toe with our clients so that perhaps they’ll go hand 2 hand and heart 2 heart. Without any monster props (or hookers!)we tackle bigger opponents where it hurts.. We’re no soft centres. We don’t knock on, we play on until we get a quality conversion. Guys… are you tired of kicking to touch or your love life is in a bind and meeting
