I’ve noticed recently, that people are getting tired of online dating, that Tinder might not be the ideal place to find ‘The One’ (no shit Sherlock). Because of this it comes as welcome news that I’m seeing plenty of singles events being launched – some better than others admittedly, but it’s clear that, with the growing disparity with online dating people are reverting back to the old school method of meeting people, i.e.. chatting in a bar or at an event – real chat, real people, real time and no messaging back and forth for months without ever meeting – *exactly* what I’m talking about.
Created to meet the demand for a face to face singles experience, and for those bored by the anonymity of virtual dating, Fifty:Fifty requests each person brings a single friend of the opposite sex, ensuring a perfect balance of women and men.
Guests are greeted at the venue with a complimentary glass of prosecco or bottle of beer. After all the guests have arrived, a quick-fire round of speed dating takes place. All those present will then have an opportunity to spend more time with the date of their choice. Fifty:Fifty’s resident love/life coaches Julia Keller, and Richard Marchand, will be on hand with tips for both genders. Work will then turn into a regular club night featuring guest DJs.
At 9pm, the host will choose a ‘star’ couple, and they’ll be sent to an exclusive restaurant in London for an all-expenses-paid meal.
Over the next 12 months, Fifty:Fifty will pick a superstar couple who will be flown out to the Bahamas to stay in luxury accommodation for a week.
James Robertson, owner of Work and the promoter of Fifty:Fifty, said:“I’ve been meaning to put on Fifty:Fifty for over 20 years. But, now I have a nightclub, I’ve got the perfect excuse. The idea of bringing a single friend of the opposite sex means that they’ll always be the perfect ratio of men and women and you’ve always got someone to talk to when you arrive at the club.”
