I joined two months after my divorce
and this sure beats sitting at home and emailing people on the internet. I was tired of not having a date for work functions and liked that I got to meet people in person. My counselor Mandy is terrific and very supportive. She also gives me advice on who to sit by and what to talk about, which is helpful since I was married for so long I forgot how to date!
All in all this is a nice place if you're looking to get out and have fun. I wouldn't join with high expectations of 'meeting the one' because they might not happen. It's also nice to meet other people who are going through the same thing you are.
I have a date for my company Christmas party and I'm looking forward to having a dancing partner.
When I first joined this service, I was
a bit skeptical. At my age, it's difficult to find someone who I would want to settle down with, again. I know I have outrageous criteria for the man I want to meet, but I figured since I wasn't meeting this man on my own, I might as well try out a service! During my intial meeting, I laid out all my criteria, signed up, still skeptical, but open.
After many chats with my matchmaker, and a number of drink introductions with new men, I felt like the right man was on the horizon. My matchmaker reassured me from the beginning that this was going to be a journey, that the first man may not be exactly right for me, nor the second or third, but eventually through gaining dating experience and feedback on what I could do differently, I would find the man for me. On my fourth match, I met Thomas. Thom (for short) lives an hour from me, he is shorter than the height I required, and he has more pets than I'm used to, I know he's the right man for me. He's strong, a gentleman, likes gardening, and I just enjoy being around him. It's still early on in our relationship, but I know things will go far!
I'm so happy that I joined this service and that I was able to bounce ideas off my matchmaker. Realistically, I hadn't realized that my requirements for dating were the same from when I was in my 20s, when I met my first husband. Now at the ripe age of 60, things are different, adjustments have been made, but I know in my heart that Thom is exactly what I'm looking for!
Awful disappointing experience. They over hype the experience and then dont match with even your most basic criteria being met. Avoid this service. Big price does NOT NOT NOT translate into big result or opportunity. Despite delivering sub par results they will not return even a portion of your money. Apparently they have no obligation to deliver anything but the minimum of 3 male bodies at a table for you despite the sales presentation to the contrary.
I originally joined the service four
years ago and as luck would have it, I got back together with my ex and we stayed together for two more years. I had gone on a few dinners and one match while I was a member and when I suspended my membership Mandy was really accommodating and supportive. She even gave me some really helpful advice when I explained the situation. After the final break up I decided to take another year off before dating again. This time when I came back I was delighted to find that Mandy was still with the company and that she would still be my match maker!
This is the same great service that it was when I signed up. The quality of people that I am meeting is very promising that I will meet a partner that is my equal. I have worked very hard in my life to achieve my goals and it’s so important to me that this time around I can find a partner that can identify with that. I am currently dating a couple of guys that are total gentleman and really interesting. Mandy continues to give me great guidance as things progress and it has really helped me to open up to new opportunities without sacrificing what it is that is truly important to me in a relationship. I am so grateful to have a match maker that takes the time to work with me one on one and it’s especially helpful that she knows the people I am dating too. That’s not something that you can get anywhere else! I really recommend this service to every single person I know.
I joined the service right at the start of the year, part of my New Year's resolutions. It is definitely a priority to date more, and hopefully find someone great to be in a relationship with. I'm an attorney, and don't have tons of time outside of work. I tried online dating stuff, but spent lots of time just weeding people out, and didn't actually meet many men face to face.
I work with Mandy, Stephanie and Jessica. I love going to my dinner parties. I've actually gone out again with a guy from every dinner party I've attended. My last dinner part I met a cute doctor, and it turned out that we had mutual friends. If only my friends had been better at fixing me up!
My only complaint is that between my busy work schedule, and how it seems my matchmakers spend most of their day on the phone, we end up playing phone tag. When I'm scheduled to go out that evening, I always hear back from them, but otherwise it can take until the next business day. I'm happy with the quality of guys I'm meeting, and I've made some new girl friends as well. My dating life is definitely busy these days!
North Meets South.
I decided to join about 8 months ago because I travel a lot for work between LA and San Jose which makes it difficult for me to set things up with people I encountered online. Mandy and Anni have done a really great job of collaborating to make sure that they can maximize my membership in both locations. I have met some really nice guys and it's great to have the girls setting me up because they are able to explain my work-life schedule to the guys before we go out which makes it a lot less awkward for me in the beginning. It's also really nice to have a dinner to go to in the evening when I am traveling because nights tend to get a little monotonous when I am working. I have met friends in both locations that I keep in touch with and now my social life in both locations is just fantastic. I actually don't feel so bummed about having to travel back and forth so much anymore!
What has also been nice is that I have been able to meet guys that have roots in Northern AND Southern California which gives us more long term potential if we hit it off. Right now I am dating a couple of guys that I have met through the service consistently and I have a good feeling that things are headed in the right direction, but I'm taking my time to make a decision and just enjoying the process. It actually seems strange to think that I actually ENJOY dating now, but I do! Just meeting new people and always knowing I have a new opportunity around the corner takes a lot of the pressure off. Plus working with the match makers is a lot of fun too. They do a great job of getting to know each of us and you can tell in talking with them that they enjoy what they do and are not afraid to tell it like it is!
This is a fun way to meet people and I recommend giving it a try if you are a young professional that is over the whole online thing.
After a few strikes, knocked it out of the park!.
When I first joined I had gotten out of a 20 year marriage a couple of years before and hadn't explored many options when it came to dating. I couldn't even remember what it was like to go out on a date and the thought scared the hell out of me. My friends had tried online dating and I didn't feel comfortable with that given that I teach in a somewhat small community. The thought of a student seeing me is pretty mortifying!
I felt really safe with the concept because I would have the support of the other women I would meet and I could have a buffer between an eventual one on one date. Mandy really gave me a lot of encouragement, even calling me on the nigh of my first dinner to give me a pep talk! That was the first of a few dinners where I met some really nice people, some who are now very close friends. I began to recognize after each dinner that I had a better sense of what types of men I was open to dating, and it was so helpful to be able to analyze things with an expert. When I got the courage to go out one on one I met Paul. I really felt as I sat in front him on our first meeting that Mandy had somehow manufactured a prototype based on everything I had shared with her. Luckily he felt the same way! Paul and I celebrated our 1 year anniversary yesterday and we both anticipate that it will be the first of many.
I am so glad that with some encouragement, guidance, and support I was smart enough to try it until it worked.
Met a great guy. My experience from Table for Six has been a nice surprise. I have met so many amazing people. The ladies who are my match makers always take great account of whom I am looking for. I haven't found the one yet, but I am extremely hopeful with the matches that I have received. Good job, Ladies! Keep em' coming.
My matchmakers get me. My experience thus far has been great. I have no problem meeting new people. I am just tired of meeting co-workers friends at happy hours. I really enjoy the dinners and one on one matches. The best part of this service is that I can express my feelings about the men that I meet to my matchmakers, Angel and Mandy. This cuts out any potential drama that could ensue through co-workers. They give me great advice and are just so pleasant to chat with. I have met so many intelligent people who have done so many interesting things. Bottom line: Quality people and Quality service.
Beats online "dating"!.
I signed up for the service with Lynne about 6 months ago. I was apprehensive at first, especially after reading some of the reviews on here, but I decided to take a chance and I'm really glad that I did. I'm a good looking woman in my early 50's and I had tried online with out much luck. I felt like Lynne really understood where I was coming from.
Now, I get it. Sometimes I meet guys at the tables that aren't for me, but I always have a nice time because the people who I've met are really good people and I always seem to have something on the calendar. Mandy does a great job of describing the people I will be meeting so I'm prepared before each date. I've gone on of second and third dates with some of the men I've met. I've gotten some great advice and I have a lot more confidence since the men are actually coming to ME for dates.
Having the support of the staff to make things happen is really convenient. Given my experience so far, I am hopeful that I will meet my match through the service.
