Irish Men and their Mammies

1 year ago 0 369

This article has been written from my experiences with my Matchmaking and Introductions agency, One2One Introductions.  So please don’t shoot the messenger. Also, I’m the original born again poacher turned gamekeeper. Now read on…. Mammy knows best. I blame Irish Mammies for it all. From the time we were Mommies Little Soldier we’ve been pampered, put on a pedestal and told that there’s “no one good enough for my son” and so we’ve grown up actually believing it. By the time we’re finished school and college and have entered the big bad world of commerce and earning a wage 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 therefore expect too much from dating because we…………. A…think

What if this is as good as it gets?

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)

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

Busy..adjective :having a great deal to do: toiling at: labouring away:  wrapped up in: occupied, engaged in.. Everyone is snowed under( and stressed) these days..work work work, home,  drama lessons for the cat, doggy obedience school, oh god I forgot about the kids, Baltazar needs his  Ulysses translated into Hebrew before lunch, then there’s origami, gym, Pilates with Gerry, shopping,  walking the goldfish, Facebooking, Tindering, Instagraming, Tweeting, thinking, contemplating life.. Whoever invented the 24 hour day certainly wasn’t born on social media that’s for sure Sherlock. ..we’re all busy….  So busy in fact, that the very idea of taking time out to look for a significant other just doesn’t bear twerking about.  And anyway, they’d have to get up earlier than Leo Vadakar to hang out with me. I’m just too busy being busy these days! I know…I’ll join an online dating site. The Ikea of email order brides and

The rules of Dating… Debunked!

3 years ago 0 760

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

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
