In the days before the Internet, many single people who wanted to find a relationship might have posted a personal ad in a local newspaper or perhaps gave telephone dating a whirl.
While these types of dating were great for their time, they have mostly been replaced with Internet dating, which works in a similar way but is much more effective and easier to do.
“The opportunity is there, but the focus is not the dating,” says Ms Langley.
“One of my catch-cries is ‘I can’t take money and guarantee they will find a soul mate or partner because it is chemistry and no one person can account for chemistry’.” When asked about the effect that internet dating has had on Table for Six, she said that in the long run it has been beneficial.
But if you don’t hit it off, it’s only seven minutes out of your life.
Speed dating does not have to be stressful or frightening; you will be pleasantly surprised how fun and relaxing it really is.
Table for Six involves three men and three women being introduced to each other in a city restaurant, by a host, on either a Friday or Saturday night.
Ms Langley says the aim of Table for Six is to put a group of people together who will enjoy each others’ company and have a good evening out.
“Initially, when the internet kicked in, business slowed down.” But she says people who had been using the internet found that it was not for them.
“There were too many disappointments when they actually met the person.” Table for Six diners have the advantage of knowing that everybody who has joined the organisation has been vetted by Ms Langley.
At the dinner clients are introduced by their first name and it is left to the discretion of the client to reveal more about themselves if they choose.
