Hello all,
I have wanted to create an event which I joined myself in the UK and never heard that it happened here in Turkey. Maybe it did but I have missed it :)

Ok, I want to create a series of 'Matchmaking Parties' which bring single people together who are looking for a partner or at least would not mind having one in the cold&wintery days :)) It can be quite tough to find the person you like and would like to hang out in a city/country you do not know and this parties might help you to find a new path!!!

So the basis of the event that there will be single women&men who would meet other single people&like to find out about each other.

Girls will be sitting at a table and then men will be moving after 3 minutes chat&asking each other questions at each table. After 3 minutes you will hear the bell and men will need to move onto the next table!! Meanwhile everyone will have a list of the people attending where they can put a mark across the name of the person they liked&would like to get in touch. If both persons mark each other then I will be passing the contact details to them both. (your phone number or email, as you wish)

PS: Age limit is between 20-40 years old.

Entry fee is 15TL but it is free for ladies!!

After the event which I guess will take around 60-70min, we will stay at the pub/cafe where we are to carry on. I mean you can carry on chatting with the one you like or just mingle with everyone. Please DO NOT be afraid & just be brave! there is nothing to lose you aren't the only SINGLE ONE OUT THERE!! :)))

I just would like everyone to be very honest regarding their singleness or the information they give about themselves not to cause any disappointment in the future :) Also I personally do not take any responsibility for anyone just to let you know, we are all adults :)

This event will also be on Istanbul Expat Social Club so you can see the attendees there too.

PS: I might need to limit the number of men or gilrs if one sex is a lot higher than the other one :( sorry about it in advance.

    Hello, The event will take place on the second floor of Lokal Tunel. This cafe/club is in Tunel, just opposite the Tunel (the old underground tram) which takes you to Karakoy and next to the ice cream shop with white&green sign. It is quite difficult not to find but let's meet in front of the Tunel station at 8pm to make it easier for you :))
    (I will wait for you like 15 min) Otherwise you can call me if you can not find it.

    Hi everyone,
    very sorry for the inconvenience caused but I have to make a change regarding the age limit. Age limit of the attendees for this event is 20-40 years old. I had to make this change to make it a more homogenic one regarding the profiles of the people coming to reach our purpose :) I will set up a meeting for the following week for the members aged between 35-55 or 60 years old. I am not too sure abut the maximum age. You can make recommendations, it is appreciated :)) Byee
