Safety First

Monday, July 23rd, 2012

Online dating is great fun, and if you are using you could be one of hundreds of annual success stories,

but you still need to be careful when meeting people you don’t know.


It’s always very important that you remember to plan your date carefully and follow basic safety rules.  Most people are going to be normal, but as with anything you should always have your guard up for the tiny minority who are not.  It’s all common sense but it can be easy to overlook these things if you get on well before you meet.

1)Always meet in a public place. This the golden rule.  Meet somewhere where there are lots of people.

2) Tell a friend or family member where you are going.  You can even get them to call you at a certain time to make sure you are OK.  If you change venues, update them with a quick text.

3)  Never get into a car with someone you don’t know.  Don’t let them pick you up from your home and don’t accept a lift.  Instead, make your own way to the venue.

4) Don’t drink too much.  Always know your limits so you can make sure that you stay in control.

5) If something seems wrong – leave. You should never feel pressurised into doing something that makes you feel uncomfortable.  If your date genuinely has your best feelings at heart, they will want you to be happy.   Never be afraid to walk out if things don’t feel right.

You could always arrange to meet your date at one of our Hindu and Sikh parties.

Happy dating,

Technical issue this morning

Sunday, July 22nd, 2012

Sunday 22nd July 2012

Dear members

Last night there was a technical issue which caused parts of the database to fail.
This would have meant that those who tried to access their accounts this morning would not have been able to do so.

This issue is now resolved and we apologise for any inconvenience.

A minority of users may have lost some messages from late last night. We have taken a backup of these so if you need these please let us know. This is a bad time for us as we are on annual leave and I’ve just dropped my laptop! Worst possible time.

A few people have emailed because they are concerned about personal data. I just wish to confirm that credit card data is not stored anywhere on our systems.

I personally thank you for your patience and loyalty.

Announcing our “Summer of Love” 2012 Hindu & Sikh Party

Monday, July 16th, 2012

Our Summer of Love parties are always popular

This year we are making it bigger and better than ever!

So far this Summer has been a bit of a washout. But this doesn’t mean the same has to be true for your love life.   We’ve been running our special “Summer of Love” themed parties over the last 5 years and they are some of our best loved.

We’ve decided to make this the best Summer of Love yet, so to fight the bad weather we are arranging some special treats for this event.


The party will take place at the wonderful Abbey in Victoria – our most popular event.

We’ll have a slightly wider age group than usual for the event, to make sure we get a big crowd.  However, we’ll be running our optional speed dating sessions in age appropriate groups.

This party will be sponsored by PJR Mini Creations – aka the Cupcake King.  So do watch our for your complimentary cupcakes.  They really are spectacular and won’t last long!

For your entertainment we have top covers band “The Vibes” playing later in the evening. The Vibes are a high energy party band from the South East established over five years ago in 2007. They play a wide selection of music from all eras with all the party classics from the last 60 years.  They are guaranteed to get you dancing.

As well as all this we will a NEW ice breaking game and our very best hosts working to get you mingling and meeting everyone.

So don’t delay – book right now as this event will soon sell out.    The busier it gets then the more bonuses we can add on.

How to spot a loser

Monday, July 9th, 2012

Are you dating a loser?

Find out how to spot one right now.

The Dating Pool is made up of a wide variety of people. Most are lovely, thoughtful individuals but there are of course a few who are a little more “unrefined.”    So can you tell who is who before you waste too much time?

To help, there are some simple steps you can take to filter out these idiots.  If you have your doubts then ask yourself these questions:
1) How are they with their friends and family?  If you are wary, watch how they act with them before introducing them to any of yours

2) What are their texts like?   If they can’t spell or take the time to send you nice messages, that’s a good indication they are not a keeper.

3) Is their glass half full or half empty?  Negative people are more likely to be clueless interacting with others and will only get you feeling low too. Only date those that are ambitious, passionate and positive.

4) Have you read their Facebook profile?   Take a good look at their wall posts, friend interactions and photos.  These can reveal so much more than they’d like you to know.

5) Are they affectionate?  If they are more likely to hug a teddy bear or an Xbox controller than you, there’s not much point pursuing a relationship.


Do you have your own ways to avoid time wasters and losers?  Add your thoughts here to help everyone else!

Happy dating,
