If there's one sure-fire way to beat off dating nerves, it's to keep your hands busy. To that end, the Conscious Dating Co., which hosts interesting, down-to-earth events for singles, is running a gnocchi-making workshop. In between learning how to make fresh pasta, you'll be drinking wine and meeting new people.
One of the most nerve-wrecking aspects of dating can be thinking of something to say. Fear not. The organisers will provide you with one-on-one introductions, as well as conversation cards and activities, to keep interactions flowing.
Last, but certainly not least, your gnocchi will be transformed into a delicious meal, which you'll get to share with your newfound acquaintances. And, if you do happen to meet someone you fancy, you won't have to be the one to let them know. The Conscious Dating crew will do the work for you, by getting you to write down names at the end of the night, then, later on, notifying you of any matches.
The gnocchi date night will be held on July 25 and 26, with the former being for heterosexuals and the latter for those looking for a same-sex lover.
