Singles Parties, Aug 30 - Sept 1, 2007

We started the holiday weekend early on Thursday night, Aug 30, with our first-ever Salsa Party for Young Single Professionals, at Cafe Cocomo in San Francisco. Good crowd.

On Friday night we held our annual Baby Boomers Bash, at Michael's in Mt View. Huge crowd, high energy, lots of new faces!

On Saturday we held our annual Contra Costa Singles Convention. Another big crowd, which was miraculous, considering that very few of our singles from San Francisco and the west Bay showed up, because of the closure of the Bay Bridge.

Representatives from many of the leading singles organizations in the Bay Area spoke and/or exhibited at the convention, including Beachcombers Singles, Wine Socials, LockandKeyMatch, East Bay Speed Dating,, Jeannine Kaiser, Dr. Wendy Lyon, Singles of Solano, etc. Thanks to all of our co-sponsors!

Yours truly delivered the Keynote Address on "Looking for Love in All the Right Places," which was well received. I gave everyone the assignment of getting rejected by at least five strangers of the opposite sex during the Dance Party. I am happy to report that no one was able to get five rejections! Everyone was just too friendly and agreeable to reject anyone, so the dance floor was packed all night. If you did not get the chance to hear me speak, I will deliver an expanded version of my keynote on Sunday night, Sept 9, at Santa Rosa Jr College.

Miguel Guidos of Startracks spun the tunes at both the Friday and Saturday night parties. Miguel and his lovely assistant, Alex, put on quite a show!

This coming week we again have three parties, beginning with our annual Napa Singles Mixer, Tuesday, Sept 4, 7-9pm, at Rings at Embassy Suites Hotel. On Thursday we do a Lock & Key Mixer & Dance Party for the first time at Jack London Square in Oakland, at Kimball's Carnivall. On Saturday we do a Wine Tasting & Dance Party at Mr Smiths Night Club in San Francisco. More details about all of our events at See you at the parties!

"Wendy really helped me to identify my relationship needs and wants, and the blocks I had to finding the right partner… I got clearer on my relationship requirements, uncovered limiting beliefs, and made a plan for meeting my partner. I recently married an emotionally available man and we share something I never had before - real mature love. This course is an excellent way to get clearer on the type of relationship you want and to create a plan to achieve it." C.P., Pleasanton, CA

"Wendy's Relationship Success for Singles class was very useful in my process of finding the love of my life. We are engaged to be married, have bought a house together, and are overjoyed to have found each other. The course certainly made a major contribution to my readiness and clarity, and greatly increased the efficiency of my dating. I'm glad to have taken the class, and made some friends among the other attendees, in addition to the ways that it forwarded my search. I tell my single friends who ask (and many do, after seeing how good a relationship we have) about it." D.D., Novato, CA

"After attending Wendy's Introductory Evening, I asked myself if I was really serious about creating the relationship of my dreams. I knew this was my chance. Six months after I took her course, I started dating the man I married on Jan. 20, 2007. The workshop helped me find out what I really wanted so I could be the chooser instead of the chosen. Wendy gave me new tools which kept me from making the same mistakes. One of my tools was a hand made collage of my future life and relationship. I still have it on the wall and it inspires me to this day. Don't miss this opportunity." D.S. San Rafael

"Wendy is a light and a Love who is committed to helping men and women find the partner of their dreams. I just completed the 8 week course and learned A LOT about how I am in relationship and what I truly require in my next one. There is so much material to dive into and Wendy presents it in a fun and lighthearted way. The 8 week course yielded more than just a plan; I made some great new friends as well. Now that I have new tools and more knowledge about creating and manifesting a relationship of my vision, I can set out step by step, and explore. Now I can be the chooser/manifester…Sure you can read about how to do all this in great manuals, but to have a core group of support and comrades on the same journey is more than helpful; it’s essential! And Wendy creates the space for this to occur. Check it out and share with others." M.C., Mill Valley

"The Relationship Course for Singles and Wendy's coaching WORK!!!! It's one thing to know that I want to be in a relationship. It's another thing to know how to make it come true. Wendy gives you all the tools to make your love quest a success!
Wendy is wonderful in helping you explore, define, and focus your vision. She and the course are inspiring. I have learned to focus on my relationship vision and goals, to clarify my skills, needs, wants and values to attract and choose the right relationship for me. Wendy is the greatest inspiration and support towards manifesting my dream!" H.C., Redwood City, CA

Investment: $400 – reduced to $375 for enrollment by September 18.
