Across the Room

About Us

Our Founder

As you have shown interest in the dating agency and singles events of Across the Room, let me tell you something about myself.

I am Eleanor, and I founded Across the Room in 1991 to bring quality social events and introductions to single professionals.

I lived overseas for a number of years and when my marriage broke up I returned to England. I needed to start my life again but was unsure how to do so. I tried a number of various organisations but found the quality of people I met fell below my expectations. No doubt you may have experienced the same disappointments. I tried discos and night-clubs, but met only the predatory – and other women’s husbands!

Stepping out into the big wide world after being in a relationship can be quite a daunting experience.

I decided to change all that . . .

I thought to myself: there must be an intelligent,
cultivated life out there somewhere!

I decided against online dating :

I preferred my dates to have been through a vetting system, whereby they had been met personally and that the organisation belonged to a governing body such as the Association of British Introduction Agencies.

I decided to start my own Introduction Agency.

I knew that there were many single people in my position and my aim was to provide the environment for genuine Professional single people to meet each other and embark on a rewarding relationship. We offer the magic of personal chemistry, sow the seeds, mix the ingredients, and the rest is up to you…

Personal recommendation :

Today, I believe I have achieved these objectives and many new members now join Across the Room through the personal recommendation of existing members.

A Sparkling Social Life :

In addition to our highly successful Professional Dating Agency we also offer Singles Events. Many members enjoy a great improvement in their social lives as Across the Room does not force instant happiness upon you, what it does is help you to “Make it Happen”.

I do hope that you find the information on my website helpful and that you will decide to join us.
