    Have been considering it but don't think I would have anyone to go with. Is going alone to these things seen as weird?

    That's what I was thinking to haha, sure you just move around tables and chat with people I think from what i seen online I would go alone anyway

    Yeah you're probably right. I'm just very shy, not sure it would work out well for me but I guess if I never try I'll never know.

    Have gone Speeddating a few times now. Most people guys and ladies rock up to the Venue alone. A handful do bring others with them. But most people walk in on their own. There might be a teeny bit of mingling at the start, - walking around to other tables to say hi, but a lot of the time people are just getting seated and going to get a drink at the Bar so there isn't really that much chatting going on at the start anyway. I.m.e. it's always held on a week night anyway so there isn't much socialising or mingling going on as a lot leave straight away, but, I have seen an odd time where all/most of the lads that attended stay on at the Bar afterwards for a pint.

    If you would be able to muster up the courage to go on your own I would advise you to go even just to experience it. It's a laugh and a bitta craic! :)

    Sounds like cattle being sold at a mart.

    So, I'm single so I guess this is the thread for me! It's my birthday too so that's another reason to be down :D:D


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,365 ✭✭✭ Trebor176


    Well, this thread has been extremely quiet of late. Can I assume that most contributors are no longer single?

    Are you going brand new? If you don't mind me asking, what's your budget?

    Brand new, budget is between €30,000 to €40,000

    I'd say you'd be looking at a saloon, such as an A3, A4, or maybe even a 3-Series. Though, you'd get large enough saloons for that price range. Golfs can fall into that range too. You could even opt for a range topping Hyundai Tuscon, Santa Fe or something like that.

    Don't like Audi's except R8, not a golf fan either

    Yea I don't mind.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,365 ✭✭✭ Trebor176


    How about something like the new SEAT Ateca, Skoda Kodiaq, Hyundai Tuscon, Ford Kuga, or even a range topping CX-3? Some sort of mid-sized hot hatch maybe, if you're looking for fun?

    Tucson is only 1.7, Kodiaq i was looking at won't be available until July, Cx-3 abit small much prefer Cx-5 but doesn't really gets my heart racing :D

    Might hold out for the new civic type r

    I'll have no CX3 bashing!

    The Civic's suspension is meant to be rock hard, so it's probably something to be aware of.

    All good here. No marriage on the cards!

    I am heading out on a work night out soon, but I'm not holding out hope of meeting someone! Still, a gorgeous colleague will be out with us, but the whole workplace relationships thing has made me reluctant to ask her out. Potential awkwardness and all that. . .


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,085 ✭✭✭ misstearheus


    Wouldn't personally intentionally ask someone out at work. Certainly not if she's relatively new. Just continue to keep building up a natural rapport with her for now.
