Dating trends to leave in 2019

Dating

dating trends

Whenever I listen to one of my single friends update me on their latest dating woes, I can only thank God that I no longer have to wrestle with the possibility of a recent right swipe being something I’d later regret. It would seem that the trials and tribulations of modern dating are becoming increasingly tiresome and at this rate, I have the impression that a single first date horror story would be enough to make someone with a perfectly healthy libido want to commit to a life of celibacy. 

Between Tinder users openly admitting to already being in a relationship and people going MIA when the details of a first meet up are finalised, there seems to be a growing disillusionment in the dating scene between men and women alike that doesn’t appear to be subsiding any time soon. 

So for my first blog of 2020, I wanted to draw from some of these very real experiences and discuss a few of the trends that have become the norm in 21st Century dating. I will admit that I am guilty of having committed one or two of these dating faux pas back in my single days, so know that I am in no way shape or form trying to be sanctimonious here. However, it is a new year so the least we can do is make an effort to put these habits behind us.

Without further ado, here are some of the dating trends that I think have absolutely no place in 2020 🙂

Pulling a Houdini

Commonly known as ‘ghosting,’ this trend is something we can all admit to either having fallen victim to or having committed ourselves. Whatever side of the fence you’re on, it is damaging for both parties. Karma has a way of giving professional ghosters a taste of their own medicine and as for the person on the receiving end, not only does it negatively impact their self-esteem, but it also impacts their attitude towards dating. Be grown and leave the magic to the professionals.

How have you been-ing

I’ve employed this phrase to describe the texts that usually start to prop up during the peak of cuffing season and then again in the lead up to Christmas. There must be something about the end of the year that makes people more inclined to want to rekindle past relationships. If it’s a genuine conversation or possible closure that is needed for the person asking ‘how have you been?’, then that’s fair. But if it’s boredom, then don’t bother because you’re only wasting your own time and theirs. 

Haunting 

Much like the last trend, haunting is the term used to describe the presence of an ex in your digital life. The difference being is that they exist silently. They continue to follow you on all your social media accounts, watch every Snapchat story as soon as it goes up and they consistently linger on without actually engaging in any conversation. It’s pretty what some professionals would consider to be light stalking. Keeping tabs on someone through light stalking is never a good look on anyone, leave haunting in 2019.

Fake date planning 

This is when someone makes a plan to meet someone for the first time only to have zero intention of actually following through with it. In the week leading up to the date they consistently send texts to share their excitement about meeting up in person only to go MIA the day of the actual date. Naturally, they commit trend 1, 3 and 2 almost instantly after planning a fake date. 

Penpaling

Now that technology has allowed us to have so much more access to one another, people are becoming more aware of their options. As such, they would rather play the field before committing to meeting someone in real life. If you would rather send endless texts before meeting up with someone, then that’s okay once you’re honest about wanting to explore your options. Time is too precious to waste so it’s always a good idea to make it clear what kind of dater you are.

Let 2020 be a year of growth and mutual respect for potential love interests by leaving these god awful dating trends in the past what do you say? 🙂

    Dating. I’ve never really been a fan of the term. Not only do I think it’s very American, but the word itself makes me incredibly awkward.

12 Dates of Crimbo makes Jenny Greene’s Best of The Week!!!

12 dates on jenny greene's best of the week

I have good news and bad news. The bad news is, my 12 Dates of Crimbo series has come to an end. The good news however is that shortly after it ended, I was lucky enough to be invited to Jenny Greene’s weekday evening show on RTÉ 2FM to discuss all things festive dating – I know, who would have thought that consistently posting a new date idea for 12 days straight would pay off like this? I certainly didn’t! 🙂

I called into the RTÉ radio studio last Thursday 12th December for my first live radio appearance in the longest of times and to say I was nervous is a bit of an understatement! Thankfully Jenny Greene’s team quickly put any concerns I had to rest. They are the loveliest group of people and it wasn’t long until I started discussing my 12 dates and sharing some of my own funny dating stories on the national airwaves!

jenny greene 12 dates

The following day (Friday 13th), I found out that my little segment made Jenny Greene’s best bits of the week. It was amongst some fab contributions by comedians Alison Spittle and Joanne McNally to make The Best of The Week.

As you can imagine, I was over the moon to discover this especially after being forced to sit down and listen back to the sound of my own voice – something I seldom do. All in all, not the worst Friday the 13th!

If you want to listen to my chat with the stunning goddess that is Jenny Greene, have a listen here

My segment starts from 1:21 🙂

Have the ultimate date night experience in The Stella Theatre

12 Dates of Crimbo

The Stella Theatre

The Stella Theatre is an absolute must for anyone looking to have the ultimate date night experience. The first time I entered this iconic cinematic landmark, I genuinely felt like I just stepped into The Great Gatsby set.

From the vintage popcorn machine at the refreshment bar to the art deco handrails guiding guests up to the first-floor balcony, every inch of this dine-in cinema reflects the glamour and glitz of its 1920’s glory.

I’ll admit that a regular visit to this Rathmines cinema could easily become an expensive habit, that’s why I would recommend it more for special occasions.

After sharing fun and festive date night ideas over the past 12 days, what could be more special than the last and final 12 Dates of Crimbo blog? 🙂

The Stella Theatre

When you first walk into this 1920’s setting, you’ll step onto mosaic floor in the lobby of The Refreshments Bar. At the bar you’ll be able to order popcorn from the traditional popcorn machine as well as other tasty bites such as Parmesan fries or chilli hot dogs.

The Stella Theatre

The Refreshments Bar also offers a variety of wines and cocktails to choose from. After paying for your order, you can head over to your seat with your glass and wait for the waiter to bring the rest of your order over to your chosen seating area.

Seating at The Stella Theatre

the stella theatre

The seating arrangement in The Stella Theatre is quite luxurious. Decorated with antiques lamps on vintage tables, there is a leather pouffe on each of the red armchairs, making it an even more comfortable experience. Armchair tickets costs €19.00 but you can pick from a selection of price areas.

The stella theatre

At €38.00 you can get either a bed or a 2 seater couch. As tempting as it might be to get a bed, I think it’s important to note that most of the beds are closer to the screen which means the view might not be great. There are also tickets for restricted view for €12.00.

The Stella Theatre

The Balcony

If you’d prefer a view that is less restricted, then seating in the upstairs balcony area might just do! We went upstairs to have a look at it is heavenly.

The Stella Cocktail Club

The Cocktail Club in the Stella is as swanky as the rest of the theatre. The décor and overall vibe  actually reminded me of an old New York cocktail bar.

The room was actually the original ballroom in the 1920s Stella where it hosted countless nights out for locals. Now there is a front facing window that overlooks the main street in Rathmines bringing in natural light and spacious feeling.

After an evening in this 1920’s setting,  I am quite confident that no other cinema will ever compare! Book tickets here. 🙂

Affordable date night ideas for music lovers

12 Dates of Crimbo

music in ghe wiley fox

The music industry in Ireland is soaring with artists from all genres making waves. As someone with quite a varied taste in music, I’m always looking to discover what else is out there. I can pretty much appreciate anything from pop to hip hop so when it comes to any live music performance, I am all game!

The Wiley Fox on Eden Quay, Dublin offers a variety of live music on Monday nights for those who share a similar sentiment. It has quite a small and intimate downstairs setting where singer-songwriters of all backgrounds can perform their work of art. The pub also has an upstairs section for separate music acts.

The first time I went to The Wiley Fox for a music gig, there was a songwriter who sang in Russian. I was impressed by how the multi-lingual artist was able to sing in her native tongue, play the guitar and still keep the Irish audience engaged. That’s what you call talent!

Speaking of talent…

Another gifted artist who never fails to grab the attention of large crowds is rapper Celaviedemai. The Galway artist will have her own headline show on December 18th in Workman’s Club on Wellington Quay, Dublin.

Celaviedemai has been climbing the ranks in the Irish Hip Hop scene for quite a few years now and has opened up for a number of household names including Lil Wayne, Mac Miller and Hoodie Allen. She has also been featured in Vice, New York Times and Ireland’s very own, Nialler9 following the release of her latest music video to her single called ‘Confessions.’

If you’re conflicted between the two, then don’t be! Live music in the Wiley Fox is on every Monday while Celaviedemai headline supported by Melina Malone will only happen on Wednesday 18th. Two birds in one week? I think so!

You can buy tickets for Celaviedemai’s headline here 🙂

If you are looking to be a little bit more adventurous on your date night this December then a trip to Galway for their annual continental christmas market will surely do the trick.

Running on its tenth year and still holding the title of being one of the top Christmas markets across Ireland, this much-loved event features festive gifts and food dishes from both local and European traders.

Comedy date night at The International Bar

12 Dates of Crimbo

the international bar

The International Bar has developed a reputation for being the original home of Irish comedy. Bringing together some of Ireland’s best talent for shows such as The Comedy Cellar, The International Comedy Club and The Dublin Comedy Improv, the Wicklow Street bar has live entertainment seven nights a week.

While I was enticed by the idea of receiving a free beer at the door for their Comedy Improv, it was not the show that tickled our fancy. Honestly, I think there would have been far too many opportunities for us to be singled out of the crowd.

We opted for The Comedy Cellar instead, which has been housed in the International Bar for more than 30 years. Being Ireland’s longest running comedy club, it would have been rude not to start there – at least that’s what we told ourselves!

the international bar

The Comedy Cellar runs every Tuesday and Wednesday night and is hosted by Davey Reilly. Every set has a mix between up and coming comedians and well established artists. We were lucky enough to be blessed with the talent of Emma Dornan, who in the end, did single us out from the crowd in the most gas possible way.

In a nutshell, comedy night in The International is a cheap and cheerful date night idea particularly for the festive season! Best part? You can usually pay at the door for no more than a tenner which is an absolute steal for the talent you get! 🙂

Paint and drink! Channel your inner Van Gogh on this arty date

12 Dates of Crimbo

paint and date

Paintclub is a date night idea I have yet to tick off my bucket list, so I’ll admit that we are now moving onto uncharted territory here. However, I remember first coming across the idea of unleashing my inner Van Gogh while sipping on a glass of prosec, exactly this time last year, when photos of Prosecco and Paint events were flooding my Instagram feed.

It didn’t take me very long to discover that tickets for Prosecco and Paint sell out fairly quickly and more importantly, they only had events in Dublin. So in a desperate attempt to see if I could find any similar events closer to me, I discovered Paintcluba premier social painting events company that provides pop-up art classes for people of all levels in nine locations nationwide.

Paintclub classes currently operate in Galway, Cork, Limerick, Kilkenny, Killarney, Athlone, Kildare, Howth as well as Dublin City. This means there might even be a workshop around the corner from you! 🙂

paint and date

At this point you’re probably wondering exactly how it all works.

Here is a step-by-step guide on how you can get in on the fun, straight from the horses mouth!

  • Step 1: Check out upcoming events near you.
  • Step 2: Book tickets online.
  • Step 3: Mark your Paintclub date in your diary.
  • Step 4: On the day of your workshop you will be provided all the materials, paint, brushes and even the apron.
  • Step 5: Have a drink and relax before getting started.
  • Step 6: Paint! Paint! Paint! Turn your blank canvas into a finished masterpiece with the help of guided instructions.
  • Step 7: Break! Take a breather or grab another drink.
  • Step 8: Voila! Take home your finished masterpiece!

For information on location and ticket prices, have a look on the Paintclub website.

Skate and date with Dundrum on Ice is back!!!

12 Dates of Crimbo

skate and date with dundrum on ice

The Skate and Date initiative with Dundrum On Ice is back and it continues to offer a top quality seasonal ice skating experience for ice skating lovers of all levels.

I’ve decided to add this to my 12 Dates of Crimbo because the last time I availed of this offer, I was with my gal pals. It was such a great laugh and I think it would be just as fun with a special someone.

Whether you are a seasoned pro or an amateur skater, any couple who is even remotely interested in this winter activity can enjoy the skate and date experience along with an enticing two-course meal in Jamie’s Italian Restaurant across the way.

You can have a read of my full skate and date experience here.

Fun facts about ice skating that you might want to know:

  • Ice skating developed from the old school dance, the Waltz.
  • The ‘layback spin,’ a move that requires a great deal of flexibility is one that females tend to have more success doing in comparison to men *cough* women are better than men *cough*
  • It can increase chemistry in a relationship because moments of anxiety (for the newbies) and adrenaline rushes (for the self-proclaimed pros) can lead to heightened sexual attraction.
  • Gemma Collins went down one dress size after signing up to Dancing On Ice – now if that isn’t enough of a reason to go, then I don’t know what is!

Up for a carpet ride to the Gaiety Panto’s Aladdin?

12 Dates of Crimbo

the gaiety panto

The Gaiety Theatre recently saw the opening night of the Arabian tale of Aladdin and following a successful date in the Gaiety last month, I didn’t have to hesitate to add one of the theatre’s musical productions to my 12 Dates of Crimbo series.

I don’t know about you, but I truly believe that one can never outgrow Disney and this year’s Gaiety Panto is one that is all about magic and embracing the inner child lurking in us all.

The Gaiety’s Aladdin is said to offer ‘magic wishes and dastardly dealings’ while promising to ‘excite and delight all ages with the extra helping of song, dance, slapstick and laughter.’

As you may or may not know, The Gaiety has hosted the annual Christmas Panto every year since 1873. Located on South King Street in Dublin, it is right and across from St. Stephen’s Green Shopping Centre and sports bar, Sinnotts. 

That means you have the option of either doing a bit of shopping or having pre drinks before your date – we all know which is the obvious choice here!

This festive extravaganza has casted some favourites, including Joe Conlan as ‘Widow Twankey’ and Nicholas Grennell as ‘Abanazer.’ West End talent Julian Capolei will play ‘Aladdin’ and the beautiful ‘Suzie Seweify’ plays ‘Princess Jasmine’.

Performance Information:

  • Act 1: 60mins (approx)
  • Interval: 20mins
  • Act 2: 60mins (approx)

I already have my tickets booked for next week so keep an eye on my Instagram 🙂
