The neat modifications that the QFT make to the format, such as women moving from table to table to the men as the movie theme of the evening, makes it all the more enjoyable.The format of three minutes a go and no expectations turns out to be fun, as you meet a string of very nice people who mostly have a sense of humour - a definite pre-requisite for doing this in the first place. One person tells me off for straying from the QFT-imposed rule that we only talk about movies, saying, improbably, that she hadn’t any response prepared to being asked if she’d done this before. And the screening of definitive romcom , on its 20th anniversary, is also a nice touch for a singles’ bash, although how the movie’s happy ending went down with the auditorium of hardened singles I don’t know.This is the perfect opportunity to take a chance and meet someone special.If you live outside of the city, Belfast is only short distance from most areas in the country.THEY WOULD PERSONALISE EACH MG WHICH LEFT THE GARAGE WITH THESE PLAQUES .IN THE 1950'S THEIR ADDRESS WAS STRATTON HOUSE AND THE PHONE NUMBER WAS GROVENOR 4141.
But not before they’d taken a camera phone snap of me haplessly holding a big card with the legend ‘singles night score card’ emblazoned across it, lest there be any confusion on Facebook as to my tragic state of affairs.
Women appear to be perfectly happy to take part in such evenings, simply because they’re more emotionally open anyway and don’t take it quite as seriously.
Men, it would seem, prefer to furtively hunt in the shadows, and behind the protective veil of online anonymity.
The evening begins with the surreal terror of a lifestyle coach pointing out body language techniques and what we should all be looking out for as 50 people simultaneously sit on their hands and try not to make eye contact.
After that comes the easy bit – the talking to people bit.
If that seems like a general statement, then check the statistics for yourself.
