Training company plays Cupid


A training company that tried to branch out into playing Cupid has been left wondering: 'Where are all the men?'

The Training Exchange of Sheffield decided to diversify from it mainstay of management and interpersonal skills coaching and organised a series of speed-dating events.

But it seems Sheffield men were not ready for the speed-dating phenomenon. Women seeking a soul mate outnumbered the men by five to one and all the events had to be cancelled.

The company's chief executive Simon Pugh said: 'It just wasn't possible to carry on with so few men. Maybe they're just too shy?'

Unabashed, Simon believes his experience in training provides essential crossover skills for matchmaking and is determined to have another go. He is planning a singles night to take place after Christmas.

  1. It sounds great!
    I think it’s normal that they use it. Such apps are in demand. After all, services and products for adults are becoming more and more popular. I recently stumbled across this source, and I’m interested in the many options. I had no experience with this before, and I think it’s time to fix it.
