I hope you are all keeping well and excited about the possibility of getting our lives back in some form in early 2021. I, for one, am having a very quiet Christmas with my 3 kids home for the season and planning my escape in Spring 2021.
At the moment I am liaising with local venues and working on developing and delivering quirky singles events from Spring 2021. Please keep a look out for these as details of these fun an exciting events will start to filter through in the next few weeks. During the pandemic I have sent out a few surveys at different times and I have analysed the feedback from these as well as many conversations I have had with mature singles over a two year period - using this information I have developed a new offering. South Coast Dinner Society will change its name to 'Select Events' and this will take place in the first week in December. Within these changes there will be a new membership system with a package of benefits for members. If you choose to utilise this membership you will have access to discounts, for example, on any online activities that are delivered during the pandemic as well as post pandemic discounts on tickets for Proms in the Park, many select small events in premium locations, Winery Tours with lunch, weekend staycations at amazing venues and many many more. I have secured some new preferred partnerships with Brasserie Blanc Restaurants, Harbour Hotels, Merchant Hotel, local theatres, museums, wine/gin bars, photo shoot sessions, and many more in development! Select Events will be the sister company to the new 'Select Connections' which is a Introductions & Matchmaking Company for singles over 45 and to serve your local areas. This has been developed from many people telling me that they are worried about:
Growing old by themselves
Spending another Christmas on their own
Spending another New Year on their own
Spending another Birthday on their own
Spending another holiday on their own
Not everyone spends these occasions on their own but they tell me that the feeling is pretty much the same. They want to spend it with that someone special to make their life complete but organic dating is no longer a thing, people don’t ‘happen upon each other’ by chance, on the bus, in a café or even in the pub - its not the ‘done thing’ in today’s society.
I am one of those and I have tried internet dating and it was not for me – so what do I do now? Just sit around, wasting time as the clock ticks to the end of my 50’s and I keep on worrying about spending the years of my life that should be the years of travel, city breaks, fun and exciting adventures ON MY OWN??
Here is a snippet of next weeks launch.
At SELECT CONNECTIONS we provide a highly confidential personal matchmaking service for those who are serious about finding a new partner. For a lot of us, coming out of a long-term relationship can leave us struggling to imagine what it would be like to be loved again, but we should see this as a new chapter in our lives. Online dating services and dating apps aren’t for everyone. They can be time consuming and unpredictable. No matter what your reasons are for choosing the more personal approach to dating, then leaving it to Select Connections will be the best decision you have taken.
Our service is a world away from online dating and we use our intuitive matchmaking experience together, with our ability to scratch below the surface to find what our clients truly want in their partner. Next week I will circulate the new link. If by any chance you are on my mailing list and you would prefer not to receive emails or your circumstances have changed then please send me a message or unsubscribe as I do not want to send you information that you do not want to receive.
Meanwhile, as we are still in the lockdown then please join me on Friday night for a relaxed chat and laugh to take you away from the 4 walls or exhausted Netflix viewing. Last week some people commented that they had found some amazing new friends via the zoom Fridays, murder mystery events etc, and they would never have met them or had a chance to chat to them at a face to face event - so zoom has had some positive results during a horrible time and more so for people living on their own.
