It will be a laid back, cozy environment with great food entertainment and interviews.
Plus, a chance to Mix’ N Mingle.
Now for some of you the words Mix’ N Mingle raises an eye brow or two, especially if you have never attended one before. Which is normal and the reason behind this Vblog. ( Should you want to watch the video instead , scroll down to the end of this blog).
After reading, I hope it will bring much clarity and get rid of any anxiety you might be feeling about events like this. And, I hope it prepares you for any Christian mix’n mingle events you may attend in the future.
First Things First
What is a Christian single mix & mingle?
What happens at a mix’n mingle can vary from host to host but the basics are the same, a group of Christian single men and women who come together to network and participate in intentional, interactive activities that break the ice and create open dialogue.
What is the purpose?
Let’s be real folks many Christian singles do not have many opportunities to get social in a safe and God-honouring environment to intentionally meet a potential mate. Therefore, Christian mix ‘n mingles is a great way to bring like-minded individuals together.
Why should you be open to attending a Christian mix n’mingle?
Because it is a great way to grow and connect relationally and spiritually. As the good book say’s “As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.” (Proverbs 27:17)
At christian mix’n mingle events you can meet great people who are doing great things which can be very inspiring and motivating. And last but not least you can have a divine connection with someone; no matter how many men or women are present.
Case In Point: A woman I met in 2013, who met her husband at a church group event. She was the only female that showed up; and he, the only male. They got to know each other and eventually married. They have been married for over fourteen years now.
What God has for you it is for you. Sometimes all you have to do is show up.
Now that we’ve gotten this out of the way, let’s take a look at a few Mix’N Mingle Do’s at Don’ts
Do come with a smile and not a frown please.
Do keep good hygiene. Clean nails, hair, nice scent and MEN PLEASE clip the nose hairs..or they may be a distraction.
Do show up even if this means coming alone. Remember the point is to meet new people. The less friends you come with the more opportunities you can have to mix and mingle with everyone:)
Do show up on the right day and at the right address. Have you ever showed up somewhere on the wrong day or at the wrong address? Not fun. So, get all the details a night before or even earlier and make a note to self on your phone, day planner etc. so that you don’t forget.
Don’t show up looking like you are going to a Gala or going to share a business presentation; this can be a turn off. Semi-Casual is best as it is not too overly dressed nor is it too under dressed.
Don’t show up without your ticket or money. Like the address and date info previously mentioned put your ticket in a safe place where you will remember. I usually leave it in the car glove compartment. Also, if you’re paying at the door always find out what the payment options are BEFORE getting there. This can save you time and more money.
Don’t be shy. Most mix’n mingles have an ice breaker game at the beginning which is a great way to get everyone relaxed and comfortable with each other.
Don’t have a bad attitude ladies. If a man has taken the courage to come and talk to you be nice. Remember, men have feelings just as much as you do. If he’s not your type, still show yourself friendly as the Bible states. We can learn something new and interesting from anyone. So be open minded.
Don’t be disrespectful men. If a ladies is friendly but not interested in talking with you for the entire event be mindful and respectful of that. Give her the space to mix’n mingle with others.
Hope this was helpful. Should anything else come to mind I’ll add it here.
