Vergangene Showtimes

Our topic for table talk #2: Breaking the (dating) rules! They are everywhere: In our most favourite sitcom, in our newest must-read book or in our regular talks with friends - Everywhere we are confronted with dating rules.

This table talk is held in English.


What are the table talks?
Sometimes it seems difficult to talk about certain topics with your friends and family. Sometimes one would like to hear different perspectives out of ones circle of acquaintances. And sometimes it seems one can talk almost endlessly about a certain topic.

“Table talks” wants to enable inspirational, relieving, respectful, deep and just beautiful conversations about the topics of interpersonal relationships, communication and self-awareness. It is for Singles and for people in any sort of relationships. (Table talk is NOT a dating-event)

Profound philosophical questions can occur at the same time as grueling questions, like why someone is not getting any message after a One-Night-Stand. Anything that is concerning us, gives or steals us energy, creates or dissolves misunderstandings or sets our hearts aflutter (for whatever reason) could become a topic.

What is the program?
Every meeting has its own guiding theme. At the beginning we will give a short input about the topic. Then we will just let the momentum of the conversations flow and we will only occasionally provide new impulses if necessary. Nonjudgmental and respectful interactions are the basis for every round of talks. It shall enable everyone to talk freely whatever your heart feels. Whatever is said in the rounds stays there and will not be taken outside.

For the registration at the table talks we ask for a contribution of € 5,- which will be donated to "Play Together Now". We are all about connecting people, as is this volunteer-run association that promotes the integration of young people with a refugee background through regular leisure activities (https://www.playtogethernow.at/).

Drinks (or food orders) are welcome by the establishment. The first 15 minutes are scheduled for a slow arrival and settling in. The plan is for 2 hours, but you are free to linger longer and deepen conversations beyond that.

Who is arranging the table talks?
They will be organized from the founders of Slow Dating Events Vienna, Helena and Till and also moderated from other team members. Everybody has a deep private and professional engagement with Communications and relationship topics as well as a lot of experience with self-development, group-dynamic processes and reflection.

Since we founded Slow Dating Events Vienna we were able to be part of wonderful and magical moments. We got to know a number of great people but could only briefly start deeper conversations through the lack of time. Table talks should give these conversations a framework. We are really excited to dive with you into the topics, share stories and thoughts and spend an evening with you!
