Cupid's Arrow

Hello all,
I would like to change the form of this event which will be actually same in the nature. I am hopefully learning as I go along :))

Now, I want to create a series of 'Singles Parties' which bring single people together who are looking for a partner or at least would not mind having one in these 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 really know & these parties might help you to find a new path or just meet single minded people who might turn out to be real good friends in your new home!!!

 

There will be some games to make it a more fun night. But it is a suprise and can not tell you noww!!!! :)


Please do not be afraid & just be brave! There is nothing to lose & believe me you aren't the only SINGLE ONE OUT THERE!!! :)))

 

There will be some soft music from 9pm till 10.30pm to give you the opportunity to socialise and then we will have dance music and hit the floor!! :) yihuuuu 

They let me know that they are more than happy if you would like to bring some dance music on your ipod/mp3 player to play them. -they have soft music generally- or just let me know which songs wou would like to have so I do my best to make a play list and give it to them!

 

Let me give you some info about the Cafe&Brasserie where this event will take place;

a'perawhich will mesmerise you with its delicious food variety is located on the stairs connecting Asmalı Mescit, Tunel&Sishane. When you put put your first step in a’pera which manages to attact your attention with the forks hanging down from the sunblind in front of the window and with the knife on its sign, you will feel the old Galata&Pera’s spirit. Its atmosphere welcomes you warmly with its wooden floor& chairs as well as the lovely winter garden. a’pera’s world cuisine based menü has different aromas and very fresh, daily food. This cafe&brasserie is open till 2am.



PS: This event will also be on Istanbul Socialising&Networking Group so you can see the attendees there too (some of them will not be here).
I might need to limit the number of men or women if attendees of one sex is a lot higher than the other one :( which I hope does not happen. Sorry about it in advance.


Look forward to seeing you all, come to have fun!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year with your loved ones if I do not see you at the Christmas Dinner which I will put up in  a few minutes!!

 

Take care,
Arzu

    It was really fun and funny, the game was the exodus of the event, it was really a good ice breaker for everyone because it got everybody talking, even the shy ones. I look forward to more socializing events, please more of these should be arranged.

      Hi Alper, thank you for your feedback. Although, when you check the meetup groups all over the world you will see that there are so may speed dating events, young professionals singles events organised and there are hundreds of attendees. I know it is something new for Turkey but despite the fact that the normal dinners or parties are also a good way to get to know people which might lead you to a nice relationship, these singles events give people better opportunity meet single and like minded people. Plus there is a cost of setting up each group, therefore I won't set up another group for singles parties. At least not now.

      thank you for your feedback again though.
