Paul first flew onto my radar thanks to his weekly Twitter matchmaking sessions.
Sick and tired of always bitching about online dating and sick and tired about continually talking about trying to find new ways to get out there and meet men, this week I made an actual effort to go to events where I knew the actual purpose of the night was to mingle and to meet men. The annual event, which is run by (the site that interviewed me last month HERE), does exactly what it says on the tin. This is the first time that I’ve featured an interview on my blog, but it isn’t the first time that I’ve written about ‘the Modern Day Matchmaker’, Paul Carrick Brunson.
I think it pretty much sums up how most people (that I know) feel about the very annoying and very much dreaded V-Day.
You’re single, you want to escape all of the horrid Valentines Day hoo-hah, but you don’t want to stay home alone and wallow? I first wrote about Paul back in July when I said I’d do his ‘Summer Dating Challenge‘ (which, by the way, I failed at.
Miserably) but I’ve been aware of him since I first discovered his work on Twitter earlier this year.
It wasn’t on purpose, I’ve actually been dying to blog.
But y’see the thing is, a dating blogger who isn’t actually dating doesn’t tend to have much to blog about.
Speed Dating and ASK A PRO events at the San Francisco Writers Conference One of the things that makes our conference attendees most anxious–and one of the things they end up having the most fun with–is the Speed Dating with Agents event.
For Paul, who has been dubbed the ‘real life Hitch’ (and if you don’t know who Hitch is, shame on you) this isn’t just a hobby; this is how he makes a living. Most importantly, for the sake of this blog anyway, I’ve not visited a dating website for over three weeks. Problem is, without the dating sites, what the hell do I have to blog about?
He is a certified life/relationship coach and he is also the founder of the ‘One Degree From Me’ matchmaking service. I had been hoping there might’ve been some man-gossip to share from my trip abroad. Out of my two weeks away, I only managed to spot two guys who looked even remotely interesting.
