So, you finally joined the ‘singles events are actually cool’ bandwagon. We hate to say we told you so. And, if you haven’t heard, The League throws the BEST events! Most recently, The League partnered with Netflix to co-host a series of rooftop parties to celebrate the release of their latest original rom-com movie: Set It Up.
To help out on your dating journey, League founder and CEO, Amanda Bradford is providing the latest tips and hacks for navigating your way through a singles party to achieve the ultimate success. Would love to work with you to cover these exclusive tips in any features you have planned around summer dating, or taking your online dating game IRL.
Here are a few of the tips from Bradford:
Invite Your Matches
Why spend three nights on three 45-minute dates when you can spend 3 hours at an event meeting all your Potentials at once? That’s time well spent.
Bring A Wingman/ Wingwoman
Your Wingman or Wingwoman doesn’t necessarily have to be single, just the type of person who is fun at parties and even better at helping ease you into conversation with that guy or gal you saw across the way.
Dress Smart Casual
Wear something that you’d wear on a promising first date. If you’re coming from work, make sure to bring an extra shirt or skirt in your bag if your office is one of those ‘casual converse’ types. Don’t overthink it and don’t stress – the goal is to feel comfortable and, most of all, confident.
Take advantage of the great photo ops, as they may turn out to be your next League profile pics. This is also a great way to strike up a conversation. Everyone at the event is there to meet new people and those who make the first move get bonus points in our book!
(LAST BUT NOT LEAST) Exchange Numbers & Make Plans
You don’t want to wake up the next morning and frantically email your Concierge to figure out who the cute brunette wearing the glasses working at Goldman was.
