Keeping things positive

Monday, August 13th, 2012

Sometimes dating can seem like a struggle

Here’s how to make it better

Dating is supposed to be fun, but we know that every now and again it can be frustrating.  You might put lots of effort in and find yourself being disappointed when none of them lead to anything.  It’s very important that you to upbeat and positive as they are attractive qualities.  Nobody wants to date a pessimist 🙂

So today I’ve put together some quick tips to help you stay positive.

1) Enjoy the Process. Instead of expecting every date to lead to the “one” think of it as a chance just to have fun.  Meeting new people is always useful and you might make a new friend.

2) Do something different.  The best way to break from a dull routine is to shake things up a little.  So use the chance to try some new activities – either on dates or on your own.

3) Don’t do it alone. Team up with your single friends and talk about your experiences.  Attend some of our introduction events together and compare notes.

4) Make a list.  The best way to stay positive is to write down a list of all the things you like about your life.  That will remind you than there many things you are happy and grateful about.

5) Don’t give up.  It’s the ones who stick at it and put the effort it that get results.  You might feel tempted to give up, but if you do how will ever know who might be around the corner?

Good luck!

Make them laugh

Monday, August 6th, 2012

What is the secret to creating a good impression?


When it comes to meeting someone for the first time – perhaps during one of our Muslim speed dating events – you can both be a little nervous.  You’ll both be so concerned about making a great first impression that you’ll come across as little too serious.

This is why you need to inject some fun into it.  A little humour can go a long way and be a brilliant icebreaker. After all, a “great sense of humour” is often the number one thing singles specify when they are seeking a match.

Laughing itself  can make you both feel amazing.  If you use it properly, you can trigger intense biological responses from everyperson you meet.  This is because the simple muscle contactions used in producing a laugh can trigger an increase in the levels of endorphins, the brain chemicals known for their feel good effect.

You don’ t need to learn a jokebook,  but if you hear a funny joke then make a point of remembering it.  To be natural, find something amusing to comment on or talk about something that made you laugh recently.   It’s not really about what you say, but the way you say it. Make eye contact with the person you are speaking to, talk with confidence, and they will find you incredibly funny and interesting.  Be gently teasing but never rude.

It’s also a great first date idea to take someone to see a live comedy show.  The funnier it is then the more relaxed you’ll both feel and it’s a great start to a relationship.

Good luck,
