Our newest venue

Monday, April 22nd, 2013

This Saturday’s party

is at a brand new venue


We’ve got an amazing party lined up this Saturday.  We are very pleased to be holding this in a brand new venue “Pause Bar”

The venue is exclusive and not normally open to the general public so we are very fortunate to be able to use it. Pause offers great cocktails, stunning interiors and a vibrant atmosphere to party and network creating the ultimate nightlife experience.


To celebrate this fantastic new location, we are offering a free drinks reception for the first 30 minutes.   So you’ll need to arrive on time to take full advantage for this!

We’ll have our usual mix of ice breaking, optional speed dating and great hosts to introduce you.  We’ll also have our resident DJ – Titch – to play party music later in the evening.


Please do book up so we can make this party a huge success, meaning we can continue to use Pause for future parties.

Top 5 ways you can avoid dating weirdos

Monday, April 8th, 2013

Here’s how to make sure you only

meet lovely people with online dating

Online dating is a fantastic way to meet lots of people quickly.   While most people are going to be lovely, a small section might be harder to deal with.  So here are my five quick tips to make sure you don’t attract any weirdos or oddballs:

1) If someone seems a bit odd then do let us know.  There is a report button on each profile.  If you notify us then we can investigate.

2) Don’t give anyone your full name or email until you’ve met.  Otherwise they might Google or Facebook you.  Perfect for stalkers.

3) Don’t be afraid to cut off all contact and block their profile if you get any warning signs.  They can’t see your profile after that.

4) Don’t go for long dinners on a first date.  Keep it to a one hour drinks or coffee meetings so you can escape if need be.

5) Don’t give them false hope or sleep with them if you don’t want to see them again.  Being strung along can bring out the dark side of anyone!

Good luck!
