Miss Gidi’s Mingle Guide

We all know that meeting new people as a single professional in Lagos can be challenging. This is because you hardly find the time and when you do get that time, you can’t seem to find that event with the ‘right people’, right being people like you.

Many people who have tried internet dating or meeting people through social media have gotten very disappointed! That is why events like ProConnect are the best way to meet someone new face-to-face and have fun doing it!

For the record, ProConnect is not a speed dating event, we have one too many of those in Lagos already. What we aim to achieve with ProConnect, is to bring upwardly mobile professionals looking to make new friends either for professional reasons or for social reasons. The point is, you get to have fun over good conversation, good music, good art and in the company of good people.

But this post is not entirely about ProConnect, this is about good behavior at a networking event or a party. I have been to quite a few events in Lagos and some of the recurring events include ladies being stuck to their phones and guys ending up talking to themselves.

I am not sure if this is because of the social media era but it’s about time we go back to the good old days of mingling etiquette:

  • Smile – Dear Ladies, ‘boning face’ or acting like something stinks is not the best way to attract people to you. This is the same for guys, a little smile before a hello goes a long way.
  • Compliment – Whether it be someone of the opposite sex or not, a nice compliment always makes someone’s day so why don’t you be the one to bring a smile to his/her face
  • Offer to get a drink – Yes guys! you should be a gentleman and offer the lady a drink. Ladies, this is 2015, so you are not exempt, feel free to offer that young man a drink, it’s not a marriage proposal….and oh we gat chu at ProConnect (unlimited non-alcoholic beverage is included in the bill)
  • Make the best of it – Whether you are looking for love or not, enjoy the night by having good conversation…and as much as possible, stay away from social media
  • Stop thinking about Mr or Mrs Right – The whole point of coming out is to meet new people, expand your network and ‘maybe’ find love. Walking around with a Mr or Mrs Right checklist is the easiest way to turn anyone off.

If you do click with a “special someone” at the event, do follow-up with a phone call or an email and would like to see them again! Not all people are mind-readers and stop with the forming abeg.

On that note, have you registered for ProConnect yet? Spaces are going o, don’t say I didn’t tell you

Love,
