Attend a unique singles event to meet quality people. Several dates have been formed at the previous 11 Minglers Donna has held. Some couples are dating exclusive.
6:00-6:30 – Arrive, order wine & mingle.
6:30 Event begins with a Group introduction - Donna will includes humor to help relax people and laugh as an ice-breaker, a way to get people to be more authentic and let their guard down. Each attendee has 30-40 seconds to share 1 or 2 thing that makes them unique. Include some hobbies, a recent or future trip, volunteer work you do, be open & share if you’re a widow or married for 25 years and are learning to date again.
Singles need to be effective with their intro when meeting others of the opposite sex. If you’re not good at articulating this, learn this prior to the Mingler by scheduling a coaching session with Donna or asking a friend to help you.
Next Donna facilitates an activity in groups of 6 to create a setting that allows attendees to be more at ease and communicate more from the heart. This exercise is a good one to “connect” with others and sets a warm approachable environment for the rest of the evening.
This event is somewhat structured to help people meet more than one person. The purpose of the event is to meet others, practice your introductions, connect with others, and become aware of better ways to present your 40-second commercial. This is a skill you need to sharpen and be able to articulate this when you meet a single person you’re interested in.
If this is out of your comfort zone, you are not alone! Some attendees have almost walked out because of their shyness, but stayed and enjoyed the Mingler. Let Donna know if this is "out of your comfort zone" and she will help put you at ease, offer suggestions, and make introductions.
You need to push yourself and get out to events to meet others! Invite a coworker or friend. Most people attend the Mingler by themselves and make friends,
