Mix Up Your Social Life: A Guide to Navigating IRL Singles Mixers

Get ready to diversify your social calendar. Dating apps do get stale from time to time. In Real Life social mixers are a chance to step out of your comfort zone to meet new people in real time!

Before you show up, here are some quick tips to help you make the most of your Singles Mixer experience:

1. Prepare for post connections:

Bring along some business cards or make sure your social media profiles are up to date. Be logged into your dating apps so you can connect in real time if the opportunity presents. You never know who you might meet, so remove any obstacles to connection before you show up. 

2. Positive Energy:

Feeling a bit nervous? Don’t worry, everyone else is too! Start with your name, a smile and let your positive vibe do most of the talking. It takes just 10 seconds of courage to break the ice. Take advantage of any icebreaker opportunities the host has planned and get ready to let your laugh loose while you catch the eye and attention of these no-longer-strangers. 

3. Actions Over Results:

Forget about finding "the one" and focus on enjoying yourself instead. We can't control cupids arrow, but we can control how much fun we have. Shake off the pressure and aim your actions at friendliness and the occasional flirtation. This is your best bet for leaving the event with several new peeps to be curious about in days to come. 

4. Open the Door:

 Expand your social circle! No matter your reason for attending, keep an open mind with everyone. Mingle it up, be open to everyone you meet whether you see romantic potential or not. You never know how a person you’re friendly with tonight might impact you later. 

6. Picture it happening:

Capture the moment by snagging your new peeps for a group photo or two. Then get social with your pics. Tag new friends when you share the photos on your socials or via text (get some numbers)! Tagging helps you find each other later.
