Each ManMate Dinners for 8 dinner party is your opportunity to spend an evening with 7 other gay men who have opened themselves up
to the possibilities of meeting new people.
Here are a few suggestions on how to be successful.
Arrive at the restaurant on time.
Introductions and a complimentary round of drinks begin promptly at 7pm. The foundation of the group dynamic is formed during this
part of the evening. If you arrive late, you may feel less connected when the party is seated at the table.
Be yourself. You are seated
based on the informaton that we discovered about you during your interview and because the other men at the party have expressed an
interest in meeting someone like you. Be true to who you are and let it show through.
Speak with everyone at the table. This is a
new opportunity to relate directly to seven other gay men. Don't monopolize the conversation. If there is someone at the table who
seems quiet or shy, help to draw him out. Support the other men at the table.
Stay in the present. Don't talk about ex-boyfriends
or any past horror stories. Concentrate on interests or points of view you have in common. Be who you are, not who you were.
impressions are important. If you're exuding anxiety or a rigid demeanor, who's going to be interested? Lighten up. Remain open minded.
Bring your curiosity and sense of adventure.
Rules of attraction. If you sense that your attraction to one of the other men is not
really reciprocated, don't force the issue. Direct your energy toward another guy. If you're the one who's less interested, don't
"write off" the interested party. He might know someone who is absolutely perfect for you! That's another benefit of membership to
ManMate Dinners for 8: meeting men who can introduce you to other men.
Follow through and respect. If you take someone's number…call
him. If one of the men contacts you…call him back. Unreturned phone calls and lack of follow through are a real drag. We've all been
on both sides of this issue. It's really simple…follow through and communicate where things stand.
