In just a few years Sarah has built DateClubConnect into one of the leading speeddating and singles events companies in Barcelona and Spain. Sarah is from the West Midlands in England, but has made her home in Barcelona since She had a background in accountancy, book-keeping and IT prior to coming to Barcelona, but switched accountancy in the Midlands for Speed Dating in Barcelona. While still in the UK, Sarah found herself single after a long relationship, and as is often the case after a break-up, you lose both your partner and often some mutual friends.
Sarah wanted to meet lots of new people quickly and tried speed dating in the UK. Then she moved to Spain in and wanted to meet new people here. After some disappointing experiences Sarah decided to start her own Speeddating company in Barcelona in with the idea that Speed dating in Barcelona should be lots of fun and that participants should have the best possible chance of meeting someone they really like.
Sarah tells us, "One of the reasons my events are popular is because I invite around 15 guys and 15 girls. They each have 5 minutes to talk to each other before moving to the next date at the next table. This formula has worked really well! You can visit the Dateclubconnect blog to see photos from past events. They really are all lovely people and that is why so many have matched or found new friends. People always seem to have a great time at the events and I have a lot many repeat customers who keep coming a few times until they meet someone they really like.
And actually some of my dearest and closest friends here in Barcelona, are people I have met at my own events, so it's a good way to make friends too. Sarah, "Meeting people is a big part. I am an old fashioned romantic and what I love most are the success stories. Being single is not always easy and some people find it very hard to be single and they are lonely. So for me it is very rewarding to know that thanks to my efforts and events, there are couples in Barcelona and Spain, who are now in long term relationships, living together and also now married with children.
I also know that many people have formed many new friendships from the events and stay in touch with each other afterwards. Sarah, "Mae West said you are never too old to become younger. And I agree completely.
I think we place far too much emphasis on insignificant measurements and comparisons like age, income and weight. You might do if you are lucky, but you might not. So keep trying and I can almost guarantee that you will meet someone after just a few times. Do not copy text or images on this page without permission Last Updated on Friday, 24 August
