Santa Barbara Matchmakings Lisa Darsonval can help.
Each time their hardware matches, its turned in for a new set of hardware and each person gets another raffle ticket for great prizes donated by local businessesor maybe even a date?Judging from the popularity of the events (attendance has doubled at each new gathreing) this formula for love seems to be working.The next Lock and Key party takes place Sunday, May 26 from to 3pm at the Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club and also launches Darsonvals Meet the Matchmaker series that will be held monthly, when the expert will be on hand to answer questions about dating in Santa Barbara and to connect singles during polo matches.I recently attended a Lock and Key event at Blue Martini in Brickell.And yes, the females wear lock necklaces while the men wear keys.
As the night unfolded, I began to realize this concept is quite genius!After watching the crowd (who were all so friendly), they were so much more receptive to one another than the usual club gathering.In a conventional lounge atmosphere, approaching someone may be difficult, but not here. That would be a raffle ticket that may lead to a plethora of prizes and the chance to get another lock/key.With these necklaces, someone now has a legitimate reason to approach someone else. It's a fun game, but trying out someones lock/key is just a simple way to break the ice. Yeah, I was skeptical too until I experienced it myself.No awkward hellos here so the conversation can just flow (and love can begin! Did I also mention the numerous, successful relationships and weddings that all began from a single Lock and Key event.One happy couple even invited the owner of Lock and Key, Darren, to their wedding in Italy.
