You may have heard me say once or twice… yes people do connect at my events.
However, I do not credit myself with being a matchmaker, I am simply an event planner creating the environment for singles to have fun while giving them opportunities to meet someone.
I consider the actual occurrence of bringing individuals together, the work of the universe.
One never knows exactly when the circumstances and people we hope for will enter our lives.
Many things play a part in the timing in finding our soul mate. We must take the time to meet new people, and make connections yet stay positive even if the person was not “the one” that evening we went out to explore.
Our attitude, and openness play a big part in the whole process, as well as how much time we spend and effort we allow ourselves to do the necessary social networking.
When it will happen for you? That is one of life’s mysteries.
But one thing is for sure… unless the pizza delivery girl or boy is your dreamboat, you won’t meet someone sitting at home!
Never give up, and always have faith.
Below is an untouched note from two singles that made a great connection at my speed dating event held on Long Island.
I know that Jack already e-mailed you a few weeks ago but I wanted to offer my thanks to you also for running such a great service.
I am truly believing I found the “mythical unicorn” in Jack. I was beginning to think that wonderful men (the mythical unicorns) didn’t exist, at least for me. You hear about them, some claim to have seen them, but it’s still a myth to you and, frankly, a girl’s gotta see it with her own eyes. I gave speed dating a shot figuring that if someone was going to schedule a time and plunk down a few dollars to meet someone, maybe they’d actually be looking for something real. I was hopeful, yet guarded. Along comes Jack, with everything I ever hoped for in a man. Kindness, awesome humor, talent, brains, compassion, emotional availability, gentlemanly, considerate, passionate and responsible (and more!), all tied up in an impressive package (topped with an incredible smile) that is easy to get along with and brings real joy to my life. My friends are astounded at how I found this “mythical unicorn” and are spreading the word about how good speed dating really can be. 🙂 If you didn’t bring this service to Long Island, I’d still be searching. Thank you so much for putting this all together, you’ve changed our lives.

Peggy and I really hit it off, and I wanted to thank you. I feel like a kid again.
I also wanted to tell you that I think Speed Dating is the best invention since sliced bread. For people like me, who don’t do well just walking up to strangers in bars (or elsewhere), it is a way to meet more people in one night than I might otherwise meet in years. Peggy is a computer geek (like me), likes the same entertainment that I do, and we also share a similar sense of humor and outlook on life.
Thank you Jack and Peggy for sharing with me so I can pass this along to those curious and shy but have not taken the steps yet…. that good things do happen when we dare to step outside the box!
All the best on your quest!
