Take off your Coat

Monday, March 26th, 2012

If you are attending a party

PLEASE take off your coat!

We have a rule at our parties that everyone must take off their coats before they come in.   This isn’t just our rule, but something many venues are starting to enforce too.   So in today’s blog I’m going to explain why we ask you to do this.

There are three main reasons that we ask you to take off your coats:

1) It makes you look unapproachable.  If you don’t use the cloakroom then it gives the impression that you are just about to leave.  Coats etc just serve as a barrier and block people from coming up and saying hello.  This is the last thing you want at a singles party!

2)You won’t be able to relax.   Do you really want to spend the whole evening walking round holding on to a bag or wearing a coat?  If you do, you are subconsciously telling yourself that you aren’t going to stay very long.  In fact, people who stay wrapped up are almost always the first to leave.

3)  You’ll get hot and might lose something.   Our parties can get really busy and the more people we have then the hotter it’s going to be.  Bags can go missing in the crowd so why don’t you just give it to the cloakroom attendant for safe keeping?


We always make sure that cloakrooms at the venues are either free or just £1.     Don’t forget, they have to pay someone to sit there all night guarding your belongings :)

New Web Server

New Extra Hosting power

This morning the website was down for a few hours for planned maintenance.

Some of you may be wondering what we were up to. Well, we have upgraded our hosting solution. So we now have extra power to make run faster than before.


I’m sorry if you couldn’t get on the site this morning but hopefully you will now find the site works better than ever. Please do let us know if you experience any technical issues.

As at 10pm Monday, there appears to be an issue which is causing a slow response time in some cases. We have temporarily suspended the chat feature, to remove unnecessary loads from the server. We are checking this. Unfortunately, moving the sites to a new box can have a few issues. Hopefully, we will get these ironed out within the next few hours. Sorry for any inconvenience.

A sticky situation

Monday, March 12th, 2012

Today’s blog is all about stickers.

Or rather the namebadges we use at events.

When you sign up on the website, you choose a nickname.  We do this so you keep anonymous and so that nobody else needs to know your real name unless you choose to reveal it. Therefore, the namebadge you get when you arrive at a party will just have this nickname on it.

It’s very important that you wear this sticker in a visible place all through the event.  This is so we know you have paid, so we can find you if you wish to do speed dating or if someone else wishes to get to know you.

However…..and this is the reason for the blog….some people make a decision not to wear the namebadges.

I’ve seen people putting the stickers:

1) On their hands

2) On their handbags

3) On their waist

4) Under a top

5) On their mobile phone

6) On a drink

7) On someone else

Or even worse, they just screw it up when they think we aren’t looking and don’t wear them at all!

So please remember that you MUST wear your namebadge at all times.  If you don’t then you will be asked to write out a new one or maybe even asked to leave.

We want everyone to have a great time at the parties, so please do follow this simple rule.  You never know if Mr or Miss Right is looking over at you from across the room.  If they know your username they’ll be able to email you for free the next day.  They can’t do this if they don’t know who you are!

Happy dating!
