It is summer time, and that means many things to many people.Â It is about adventures; it is about outdoor fun â€“ boats, pools, sun, swim, surf, beach, and happy hours; it is about keeping cool in the shade â€“ refreshing cocktails, popsicles, frozen yogurt, ice-cream, cold movie theatres, and invigorating restaurants; it is a time to reconnect with loved and old souls BUT also, a time to connect with fresh and new soulsâ€¦so with that in mind â€“ put your adventure hat on and come meet someone new â€“ you just donâ€™t know where that connection might lead!
What is an eye-gazing party you ask? It is a great way to spark a captivating connection with an alluring new person.Â What is this great way – eye contact!
Even numbers of singles meet in an attractive space over drinks and world beats. After a fun mini-lesson in the art and psychology of eye contact, the group splits into pairs, and each pair spends up to two minutes looking into each other’s eyes, no talking, with inviting beats in the background. Pairs switch every one to two minutes, for a total of around half an hour. There is mingling, music and drinks afterwards. The eye gazing has an electrifying effect on the party. Two minutes of eye contact is the Cadillac of ice-breakers. Who goes to eye gazing parties? Fun, adventurous, attractive, creative, confident and vibrant singles who enjoy quickly establishing amazing connections with each other.Â Eye Gazing Parties have been featured in the New York Times, CNN, Good Morning America, & Match.com. A Google search will quickly verify that this is the new craze in dating.Â Elle magazine called Eye Gazing Parties “New Yorkâ€™s hottest dating trend.”
