Coffee Dating Ireland is a modern day approach to dating. It’s for the busy individual who is serious about finding a companion over coffee (or tea!). It’s for the individual who prioritises face-to-face chemistry rather than online chatting.
The idea of Coffee Dating Ireland came from a number of people who said they were sick of online dating. We also listened to people tell us they were not comfortable going on a full-on dinner date with a stranger and would rather a more informal setting for their first date, so Coffee Dating Ireland was born.
Benefits of Coffee Dating:
*It can happen during the day.
*It takes place in a public safe busy environment.
*It’s casual so no big effort is required like a dinner date.
*It can be as short or as long as you need.
*The caffeine in coffee or tea is a natural mood enhancer, ensuring you are fuelled up and in form for a chat.
*There is no alcohol involved.
Psychologists state that two very important things need to happen on a first initial date.
1. Chemistry- There needs to be some kind of chemistry between both parties at their initial meeting. It doesn’t have to be fireworks but some sort of attraction is helpful.
2. Good communication- Both parties need to feel listened to and given the chance to communicate openly, and without judgement.
Coffee Dating Ireland does the work for you. Based on the questionnaire you fill out at sign up we will match you with a member of Coffee Dating Ireland that we feel you will be compatible with. Once we have chosen your coffee date, we will check availability with both parties and arrange your coffee, it’s that simple! We usually try to arrange your coffee at weekends but there are exceptions to this if needs be. You may be asked to travel up to 60 minutes for your coffee date because this gives you more options of potential dates. Exceptions will be made for those who don’t drive.
Length of coffee date
It is entirely up to you both how long the coffee should be but it is recommended by psychologists, to gauge chemistry between two parties, that a coffee date should be no less than 30 minutes but can be as long as both of you want.
Interested parties must be 25 years and older to join Coffee Dating Ireland.
-Once matched up, both parties will receive an email seeking their availability for the next few weeks (usually weekends). Once we align dates that suit both parties, an email will go out with details of your coffee date: it will include time, date and location.
-We ask that both parties respect the time set aside by the other person to make the date and show up on time, as agreed. Please note that if there is an emergency and you need to cancel you MUST email our offices at your earliest convenience so we can inform the other party. As we often ask people to travel up to 60-minutes for a coffee, we need to give people time change their plans, if necessary.
-We do frown upon last minute cancellations (and arranged coffee date will be included as one of your guaranteed dates) but we also realise life gets in the way and emergencies do happen. If this is the case, we also ask the other party to understand this.
Location of date
We ask you both to meet in a busy coffee shop (Costa for example) in a town or city. Please note that coffee shops in towns usually close by 5pm but are open much later in cities. We try to arrange most coffee dates during the weekend but exceptions will be made for those who are not available at weekends.
Please note Coffee Dating Ireland does NOT pay for the coffee. It is the responsibility of the daters to pay for any food or beverages consumed.
