How to Shake them Off

Monday, February 18th, 2013

Have you ever been stuck talking

to someone you aren’t keen on?

Some people just won’t take the hint.  You talk to them for a little while and once you’ve realised you aren’t interested then they just won’t take the hint.  So how do you break off the conversation without being too rude?   Here is my advice on how best to go about this:

1) Makes your excuses and leave.  It’s as easy as that.  Just tell them you need to use the toilet, want to catch up with a friend or simply that you want to speak to a variety of people.  Tell them you really enjoyed talking to them and you’ll chat to them again later in the evening.

2) Don’t accept a drink if you aren’t interested.  If you do, you’ll be obliged to stay talking with them for the duration of your drink.  It’s better to buy your own drinks and be free to mingle.

3) If you are at a singles event, use a host to help.   Tell them if someone won’t leave you alone and we’ll quickly introduce them to a more suitable match.

4) Always be polite.   You never know who might be watching or who they might be able to connect you with.  It’s fine to tell them you aren’t a good match, but do it respectfully and be as friendly as possible.

5) Don’t give out personal contact info to anyone you don’t intend to communicate with.  It sounds pretty obvious but some people will still send over all their contact info ( or hand out a business card) to anyone and everyone.   Don’t give anyone false hope that you will meet up with them again or you mind find they get frustrated and keep trying to get an explanation


Good luck!

Where have my credits gone?

Saturday, February 2nd, 2013

Here is some information about

our standing charge for credits.


On our site we have a standing charge of 5 credits per month. Its pretty nominal, eg if you purchased 100 credits at £20 it would take nearly 2 years to erode! The charge is really to encourage people to use them up and to stop the free credits lasting forever.

If you’ve only bought a few credits then we expect you will use them up well before the month is up.  Our lowest package is more of a trial than anythign else.

The standing charge is stated in many different places on the site, eg on the dating home page, in the accounts section, and in help under “How much does it cost”.

If you have Premium Membership as well as credits then there will be no standing charge as long as you are a member.
Happy dating !
