First Party of 2022 – Deal Breakers

Wednesday 26th January

Martinez | 49 Greek Street | W1D 4EG

What a way to start 2022, Martinez was full to the brim with singles looking to socialize.  We enjoyed mixing up new and regular guests in the wonderful Martinez in Soho; fun was definitely on the agenda.

Our special guest Sara Davison, The Divorce Coach talked openly about the importance of not just focusing on what you want but identifying the five must NOT have these are the deal breakers for you.

From Sara Davison

“Wow what a fun evening with such a wonderful crowd! I was honored to be invited to speak and bring some of my Accredited Breakup and Divorce Coaches to offer support and advice. 

January is always a busy month for breakups as the festive season puts so much pressure on relationships. I spoke about how to avoid the pitfalls of dating and shared my tips on learning to trust again after a divorce.  

Remember to have your list of up to 5 Dating Deal Breakers! These are things that you know you will not work for you long term in a relationship and are absolute must not haves from a partner. If they come up, you deploy your parachute and leave! 

I loved meeting you all and hope you find what you’re looking for very soon. 

For more information about Coaching sessions with Sara and her team, or training to become a Coach with Sara visit or book a call to speak to our team here.”

Many of you spent time with her team so we would like to thank Lucy, Angela, Mick and Michelle.

Marvelous  Martinez

We loved sharing our favorite secret club with you. So many compliments on this plush, dimly lit space for its charm, mystery and intrigue. The nibbles by Michelin-starred chef Hervé Deville were hoovered up in seconds.

Their mixologist delighted in creating line-ups of vintage cocktails and much-loved classics. Members remember you have three months complimentary membership so you can drop in for a cozy cocktail this spring.

Thank you to the team Maurice Marshall and Izzy Lyth who hosted this unforgettable night.  I believe cocktails, conversations and camaraderie were flowing into the early hours of Thursday.

Single socializing should be fun, so don’t put the pressure on to find Mr or Ms Right. Mr or Ms right now will be fine. Join us to meet a room full of singles that will help you get back into dating and boost your confidence.

Let’s keep meeting people and having fun.
