Table For Six / I don't recommend this club to anyone

1 United States Review updated:
Contact information:

I was a member with Table For Six for about two years mainly because I didn't want to deal with the hassle of disputing the contract. I rarely write reviews, but I feel inclined to share my experience in this case.

During those two years, I went to roughly 20 dinners, and participated in a few events, so I have participated enough to give an accurate review.

I joined Table for Six when I just turned 27, which turned out to be very young relative to the rest of the members. During my two years, I met exactly 6 women that were my age or younger. I ended up dating a few of these women, but nothing long-term developed.

In over half of my dinners, I was matched up with women well above my age. Despite clearly indicating in my profile that I was only interested in women my age or younger--though I was willing to compromise a few years--I was matched up with women well into their 30s and sometimes 40s. I had reiterated my expectations in feedback forms as well as personally over the phone on numerous occassions; however, the people at T46 never took me seriously. My expectations were extremely reasonable. I had three requirements: 1. healthy weight 2. near my age 3. employed. Unfortunately, those low standards were missed repetitively. I can't help, but to suspect that I was simply used to satisfy T46's long-standing female clients.

Men are always told that this club is perfect for them because the ratio of women to men is so high; however, while this is true, the quality of the women are below average. A significant percentage of the women are overweight, and there are very few good looking women. Every once in a while a pretty face comes around, but these women are single for a reason. They're damage goods in one way or another. Normally, it's because their expectations just aren't aligned with reality. Very few of the women are charismatic, and their table talk normally revolved around trivialities. Career wise, most of these women hold typical middle-class jobs, which they often hold in high esteem, and are often presumptuous, and sometimes patronizing towards some men who they don't feel are on par. T46 naturally draws these personalities because they market on a "pressure-free" environment for "career-minded" singles. The club ends up with women who can't find a date because they don't know how to take care of themselves, and other women, who believe they will draw a house of kings.

Bottom line: I don't reccommend this club to anyone, especially men who are under 40.

    Table For Six - They treat their clients, who are mostly professionals, like sheep that they push around to fill tables

    I agree that they treat their clients, who are mostly professionals, like sheep that they push around to fill tables. As a man, I can go to as many dinners or events as I wish because they are always short of men. That's not their fault though, but they are dishonest in selling dinners and events to me. They often call me last minute saying they have a really cute woman they want me to meet. Once you hear that line a couple times, you know that they just need bodies to fill tables. Also, they do not do a good job of screening who might be good matches for me. They know a lot about me but match me with women who have nothing in common with me. For the price, I would have expected much better service and more serious screening to match people who might be compatible.

    I am an active member of Table For Six and I continue to enjoy my
    experience with the company.First off, if you are looking for reasons
    not to do this, you will find them, as you will with ANY dating service
    out there.
    I joined in order to meet new people after I relocated for work and
    found it difficult to get my social life going. I decided long ago to
    set the bar low with regard to dating sites and I figured that at the
    bare minimum I would make some new friends. I was right! I have been
    participating for about 8 months and always enjoy myself when I go out.
    I have a fun time with the other members and working with my
    matchmakers. They are really responsive to my feedback and do a lot to
    encourage people to give eachother a chance. The advice they have given
    me has been truly valuable. They gave me some fashion tips when I first
    signed up which I thought was silly at first, but it was delivered in a
    really nice low pressure way. I took the advice and I noticed that I was
    getting more attention at the dinners and I started feeling more
    confident. I have had more second and third dates with this service than
    I ever did on my own. Let me also say that I am a woman in my mid 30's,
    good looking, never married, with one child from my marriage which ended
    4 years ago.
    Having a social and dating life with a child and a fast paced career
    was next to impossible before I joined this service. The only complaint
    that I have is that I don't have a boyfriend yet, but that's not the
    company's fault. I am meeting quality men that are in the realm of
    possibility for me to date and have a great group of friends now. That's
    a lot more that I had to start with.

    I've been online dating for about two years and it's horrible. People lie and do not put up recent photos. At least here they don't show photos and you don't get the wrong impression right out the gate. I've met more men here than online and they all have good jobs. Since the enrollment fee is substantial, you're meeting higher quality people which is nice. I've have better dates and even dated someone for a few months.

    I like that the staff sets everything up, but it's awkward when someone doesn't show up at the dinner. The idea of a group date appealed to me, especially because I hate blind dates. Some of the men are shorter or balder than I would like, but at least they aren't trying to make themselves be who they aren't like the men online. These men follow through better, not all, men will be men, but in general, the odds are better here than Match.

    Table For Six - Better than Online Dating :)

    I joined the service about 6 months ago, and I’m having a great time. Online dating wasn’t working very well for me, I’m a busy, single mom. I don’t have lots of time during the day to keep up online correspondence, and when my children are home, I feel like spending my time with them, and not on my computer. Overall, I’ve been pleased. The most awkward thing that has happened during my membership is a restaurant being unable to bring us separate checks, and one of my matches was 20 minutes late. Frustrating for me, but out of the control of my matchmakers, and something that I just had to make the best of, so I could have a fun night.
    I work primarily with Anni and Jessica; and have attended 3 dinners and 2 matches. Both of my matchmakers are upfront, and while I wish there was a way they could check off every ‘box’, they do try to fit my criteria as closely as possible, and they also let me know candidly where my date falls outside of what I’m looking for, on paper. Surprisingly to me, the man I’m dating from the service currently is a tiny bit younger than what I was looking for…we’ll see what happens…anyway, I think the service is good, and when people complain about there not being enough members, well, that isn’t exactly going to inspire new members to join…so I encourage everyone to go out, have fun meeting new people, and to be optimistic and positive. As my matchmaker Jessica told me, you never know what is waiting for you around the corner.

    I am so happy with my experience with this service. When I joined I hadn't dated much at all and I found this to be really fun and low pressure. My matchmaker Anni held my hand every step of the way by encouraging me to go out on second dates even if I wasn't sure and she gave me some insight as to how men and women are different in their approach to dating which was a real eye opener. I had no idea when I joined that I would also be getting some coaching and Anni was always really thoughtful about the way she guided me. I never felt put on the spot or like she was trying to change me. She really got to know me and I felt like she really understood who I am and I could tell on my dates that she had my back. The guys she chose for me were very nice and interesting and she even placed me with other women that I hit it off with and so I gained some great friendships from this as a bonus.

    I met my boyfriend on the third dinner I went to. At first I wasn't sure I was attracted to him, but I went out with him again on Anni's advice and it turned out that my feelings about him grew pretty quickly once I started getting to know him. I don't think I would have given him a second date if I had met him on my own. I am so glad that I was patient and invested more time with him because I have never felt more sure that I have made the right choice this time around. I am so grateful that there is a service like this for people like me who were a little rusty on the dating front. I learned so much about myself and what is really important to me in a partner. I highly recommend this service to people that are nervous about dating because the staff and other members are genuine and down to earth which makes dating so much easier and fun.
