Well it looks like spring has finally sprung! It has been a long winter and I am starting to see a little bit more movement on the social front. We are starting to leave our homes a little more and looking for new opportunities to socialize and meet people.
Spring is one of the best times to take the leap and attend a singles night or party. At this point in the year everyone is still eager to try new things and keep New Year’s promises (well, most of them!).
If it’s the first time you are attending a singles event then it might be helpful to have a few tips on etiquette to be armed with!
There is no point whatsoever in attending a singles event if you are going to isolate yourself in a corner and make it difficult for people to engage you in conversation. Be open! Take chances on speaking to people and respond to other people politely and courteously. It will go a long way.
Mind Your Manners
Really you should be observing this at all social events – not just singles parties. Be careful not to talk over people, avoid chewing with your mouth open and please cover your mouth when you sneeze! These things are an immediate turn off and guaranteed to repel any potential interest.
Remember everyone else is just as apprehensive as you are. Try to keep any wild thoughts and opinions to yourself – especially if it is about something personal to the people with whom you are speaking. Some people may not take things to heart but others will be super sensitive, so try to be mindful of that.
The most important thing is to make the effort to engage yourself in the activity and have fun! The more fun you are having the more likely it is you will relax, start chatting and get the best out of the evening.
Hope this helps!
