Men and women who are looking for other eligible singles in Canada but are leery of blind dates or dating services can try the unconventional DinnerWorks. While not technically a dating service, DinnerWorks provides a solution to the awkwardness of one-on-one dating.
DinnerWorks brings a new spin to blind dating service s by inviting not just one man and one woman, but four men and four women with similar interests to a casual dining restaurant. Because no person is specifically paired with another by the dating service, the diners are free to enjoy dinner, drinks, and conversation without the constant strain of trying to impress (or avoid) their dinner partner.
As DinnerWorks is not a traditional dating service, the aim of some participants is not always to find a romantic partner. Many diners are interested in simply expanding their personal social circles and making new business contacts through personal networking. But because each dinner mate is single, the opportunity for romance is always available.
ÂDinner was delicious,Â said Sam W., an advertising executive from Toronto. ÂEach of us paid separate bills, so there was no awkwardness at the end of the meal. Business cards were exchanged, and Mike (another DinnerWorks participant) suggested I give him a call about joining the weekly pick-up hockey game. Jane whispered that she hoped I used her card.Â
Participants for each dinner event are chosen by the dating service for their compatibility in age and common interests. The informal dinners are held at popular, come-as-you-are restaurants specifically selected for price, menu options, and location. The DinnerWorks host welcomes and introduces each of the diners, then leaves the participants to infinite possibilities.
ÂOther dating service s care more about the money than the people,Â said Susan Kates, owner of DinnerWorks. ÂMy first concern is the relationships of the people I serve. We make sure that privacy issues are taken care of, and that first names are used only and no information is given out without permission.Â
Currently, the DinnerWorks services are only available in Toronto, Ottawa, and Vancouver, Canada. They offer a number of different package options and no membership fees. Those looking to meet singles with the DinnerWorks dating service can call toll-free 1-877-44-WORKS or visit http://www.DinnerWorks.ca and fill out a free confidential questionnaire to get started. Dinners are held on almost every night of the week, and DinnerWorks promises a different group of people every time.
For over four years, the DinnerWorks dating service has been in the business of providing personal networking events for people seeking to meet singles in the Vancouver, Ottawa, and Toronto areas. The only dating service in Canada to offer this unique dating-and-dining experience, DinnerWorks is now looking to expand their dating service s into other cities.
