Joanne Deck. It was created by a rabbi after all, with the intent to help Jewish men and women get together. It has also been incorporated in over 20 popular television shows and movies. The idea is simple: an equal of single men and women in the same age range get together for a couple of hours. The women are seated around the room and the men rotate, usually spending two to five minutes with each woman.
Both parties keep track of whom they would like to get to know better. Still not sure? Please keep in mind that the purpose is twofold: to have fun and meet other singles. The organizers need you to have the s work out. Keep it light and fun; take nothing personally.
Be prepared for almost anything. Some people come with a script and questions, and occasionally somebody confuses the evening with a Chamber networking event and tries to pitch you. Remember suggestion 5.
Be yourself. There is no need to slay them with your humor or wow them with your intelligence. As with all social and networking events, keep your remarks positive. Avoid commenting on the other attendees. Appreciation is much more attractive than sarcasm and complaints. Follow the rules. Take the full two to five minutes appreciating the other person.
This is only partly facetious. Give people a minute to relax and be themselves before rendering your opinion. Keep alcohol use to a minimum so that you will be clear-headed and able to think on your feet.
Do take notes. You may have no matches from one event and have four at the next one.
When in doubt, select the other person. Accept that there were red flags you never saw, and this is a blessing in disguise. Finally, follow up with your matches. Never mind what anyone else thinks or does.
