Timing is everything

Monday, April 27th, 2015

Here’s an important note for our Muslim Party attendees.

Alarm Clock

We try out best to balance the ratios for our parties.  We have to do this for Muslim Speed Dating to make sure that our guests get to meet someone different every four minutes.

We want the events to run smoothly, so we have a clear registration time and a start time too.

However, we’ve noticed that some of our members either fail to turn up at all or arrive very late.

If you turn up late it makes it really hard to run the event.  It’s difficult to fit you in once the speed dating has begun and sometimes we have to completely turn people away.

The biggest issue is that it’s just not fair on the guests who have arrived on time.  They are left waiting around for you, or will have breaks in between meeting everyone.

If you can’t make an event PLEASE let us know well in advance so we can give your ticket to someone else.  We often have waiting lists full of people who missed out.

It’s only a few people who spoil it for everyone else but it’s common courtesy to be on time.

So PLEASE…if you book an event make sure you turn up on time.

Thank you for your understanding 🙂



How to make time for yourself

How often do you do the things that you really want to do?

The ocean stirsthe heart, inspiresthe

Many people spend their lives doing things for other people. That can include going to work, looking after family members or just trying to make people happy.  This can lead to long term unhappiness and even stress.

It’s vital that you spend a little time each week just doing the things YOU enjoy.  For some this means going for a walk in the sun or to others if might mean watching a good film.  Whatever it is, do it on your own and spend some time just enjoying your own company. Once you do that then you will much more relaxed and therefore more productive when it comes to attending to other matters.

Remember, the most important person in your life is YOU.  If you are unwell, tired, or stressed then you are in no position to help anyone else anyway.  You need to be as healthy and happy as you can possibly can.

Doing the little things are great but you need a longer plan too. Make a list of all the things you want to do in the next year.  Are there any exciting places that you would love to visit?   What would you do if money were no object and you had all the time in the world?  Are you doing the activities you really want to do or have you been neglecting them.

The more simple your life is then the more time you will have. Things don’t need to be perfect or event done right away.  If it’s not urgent then consider if you really need to do it today or if it can wait.

Once you realise how short life is, then you’ll know you only have a limited time to experience it.  So please make sure the experiences are good ones that you will remember!

Happy dating!
