Within a short space of time the twenty female tickets were gone and we began a waiting list of ten, twenty, thirty extra women.

However, the twenty male tickets were barely moving.

Naturally, an event like this could only be held with equal numbers of men and women so we began adjusting the advertising to target men specifically.

At one point it felt like we had to beg men to register.

Happily we ended up securing enough men, resulting in a total of sixty participants at the dinner (the maximum the restaurant could hold).

The night went really well, conversations flowed freely and the feedback was very positive.In fact the event went so well that we have now hosted it on three separate occasions, and each time we have had the same experience: the female tickets sell out with little energy and there is a significant waiting list, while the male tickets sell last with much greater effort and a small waiting list, if any. In my mind the whole situation is highly ironic because men are naturally (supposed to be) the initiators of relationships; they are the ones who most often ask a woman on a date, and they are most often the ones who drop to the knee to ask for a woman’s hand in marriage.While there are many events at which young adults can meet and mingle, we wanted an event that was explicitly pointed towards the goal of good relationships.Of course we had no idea how this scheme would be received and whether or not we would even achieve the minimum number of forty people to actually book out the hotel restaurant.The risk with dating events is that a person who might interiorly be interested has to rather explicitly admit to themselves (and others) that they are interested in (a) meeting someone with whom they could enter into a relationship and (b) one day marrying such a person ­ and in the 21st century we knew that would be a rather large call.None the less we created the event, started advertising, and, to be sure, the registrations began to come in.
