Style Sex & Relationships

10/22/18

By Taylor Davies

Q: I am apprehensive about trying internet dating but considering I've never been asked out in my life I suppose it couldn't hurt. Please let me know why I'm the only woman in Ireland to have never been asked out.

A: Instead of waiting for something to happen it is good for you to be proactive and your idea of online dating is fine - I've met many couples who met through the internet - but with the proviso that you are choosy about what sites you pick.

From what I hear lots of sites have predatory men who are only using them for sexual hookups and that is far from what you want. So something like Bumble.com which gives the woman the opportunity to make the first move might suit you. Alternatively, you could try It's Just Lunch (www.itsjustlunch.com) which is an agency that arranges dates for lunch between people they feel would be suited.

They operate in Cork, Galway, Limerick and Dublin. Naturally you would pay for the introduction but we all pay for any service we use so that should not be a deterrent.

Dear Mary: My life is slipping away and I fear I'm going to be left on the shelf

Mary O'Conor

“Mary, at what stage do I accept that I will be a forever singleton? I'm a woman in my early thirties with a good job, I own my house, have a good personality and a fairly hectic social life at times. However, while I feel like I have the world at my feet, I have always felt that I have failed in my love life.”

Mary replies : What an amazingly honest letter and I'm sure many other female readers in their thirties are nodding their heads in agreement. Because it can be difficult out there in the singles world, particularly when lots of your friends are getting married and having children and it hasn't happened for you yet. As the daughter of a friend who is in her early forties and recently married, remarked to me just before the wedding "I had to kiss an awful lot of frogs before I met my prince"!

Good for you for exploring all the different avenues open to you and I am sorry that none of them have worked out. Any rejection must bring back memories of your first love and the break-up, so some of these experiences will have been particularly difficult for you.

If you are anywhere in the Dublin, Cork, Limerick or Galway areas then It's Just Lunch have branches and their idea of arranging to have people meet up for lunch or a drink has also had very good results.

On the Road for Work and Finding Love

MICHAEL T. LUONGO

In 2010, Heleen Devos, a native of Belgium who works in corporate social responsibility and communications for a French energy company, was heading to Cuba for a United Nations climate change conference.

“I had seen him and found him handsome,” Ms. Devos said dreamily of a Chilean in her row. Yet she was unsure of his relationship with the older woman next to him.

Easy and Fun Ways to Meet Guys This Fall (Even Though 'Cuffing Season' Isn't a Thing)

Now is the perfect time to meet men.

By Taylor Davies

Earlier this summer, the New York Times published a story about a Harvard Business School study which suggested people who spend money to save time (rather than spending time to save money) are generally happier. Those who outsource tasks they dislike, like cleaning, accounting, or ordering in dinner rather than cooking, reported “greater overall life satisfaction.”

So if dating and dating apps make you feel stressed, frustrated and exhausted—why not try outsourcing the work to an expert? ….It’s Just Lunch will do all the legwork for you, setting you up with dates that are carefully selected for potential compatibility.
