One Week to Go
Our dreams give us strength to perform impossible tasks’
Hello my fellow Singlelistas,
This is the first day of the blog and the last week of being dateless.
Next Wednesday, March 9th I will set forth in search of Mr. Right. It’s going to be one fascinating journey!
Even though the website is there to look lurvely, (isn’t the website fabulous? Yes, the boyos at Cream Graphics can take their bows…altogether now), the blog is where you’ll get the personal recount of my 40 experiences.
A little riddle I just made up about me…
‘A speed dating host, a most ethical coach.
A lover of life, not yet a wife.
An entrepreneur, she knows how to get you more.
She loves to travel, a Queen to unravel.
Fun, free and single, she knows where to mingle.
A proud Singlelista, gives the boot to the Recessionista.’
Did that help? Haha. Sometimes, I can go off in a rant!
Well, I’m a seasoned traveller, trainer, coach and PR nut. I have explored some of the world’s most random places and bonded with people all over the world. My friends have been used to me disappearing on a night out and coming back with a selection of randomers. Random is what random does, I suppose. Life is always unpredictable, and that’s the way I like it.
Even though travelling is very much apart of my life, ‘Home is where the Heart is’ and that spoke true for me, as I decided to return home to the land of random rolling hills, rainy days and a rampant recession. I must point out that my return home was not before I won a lump sum on Deal or No Australia last year. I told you, my life is random!
Perhaps an explorer in another life, my feet are itchy for another adventure. But this time, it is the Adventures of a Singlelista that I will mount for 40 dates in 40 days. And so, on Wednesday March 9th, I will set out on the trip of a lifetime, dating my way through the singles scene of Ireland. And date them, I will: from internet dating to speed dating, from introduction sites to a date even set up by my lovely Mammy, I have cast my net far and wide.
So, at this stage, you might be saying, ‘who does ya one think she is…. she’s no Cindy Blooming Crawford – how in the world is she going to manage to pull 40 men!’ Haha….well, that’s just it. The ever-flowing message behind the 40dates conundrum is that anything is possible if you really want it, as long as you put focus on it and can back it up with the required resources to make it happen. For resources: Matchmakers, Internet Dating Gurus, Introduction agencies specialists, Speed Dating Hosts, friends and family will be on hand and working their magic helping me fill my dates. But, I’ve also to use my own resourcefulness hoping to use my own skills to find a date myself…maybe ask someone out on the luas, on the street. Please send in your suggestions, as I’d love to hear them.
I’ve about 25% of all dates confirmed (OMG, I’ve even beaten FF)…and eagerly looking for more. Please get in contact if you know of any single men that may tickle my fancy or I of theirs.
So, let the tickling begin!!
