So you’re a busy “Single” professional, you are at a networking event, maybe out for an “after hours” drink with a business associate and BAM, in walks the woman of your dreams!
Maybe you are a single woman and you see a guy that you are dying to find out if he is SINGLE!
Dating and business networking can be a touchy area. My Dad always said, “Don’t shit where ya eat!”
- Go in with a GAME PLAN – BUSINESS. Know what your purpose is. Why are you at this event? Keep the conversations to, “So Bob, tell me what you do?” “Wow, that’s facinating, tell me, who is a good referral for you?” KEEP it business minded.
- Don’t dress like you are going to the club or going on a dinner date. Keep your look professional, not too much make up or jewelry, keep the excessive cleavege under wraps and the short skirts in the closet.
- If your event serves alcohol, keep a 2 drink maximum.
Forbes published a great article on Networking & Dating.
There’s nothing wrong with getting someone’s card and contacting them later to have coffee.
Often times we see many of the same faces at networking events so USE CAUTION not to make a fool of yourself or embarrass anyone else.
Take your time getting to know someone. Watch, wait and see if there may be a mutual interest.
