When you throw a sit-down dinner party, do you try to balance the number of men and women? Many people do, because they believe it is only right and proper to have them matched up.

There’s always the tradition of inviting an extra unpaired man to the dinner party, to make sure that the balance of guests evens out. It’s a good tradition to revive if you’re having trouble getting your guests to balance out.

This can be easier said than done. Finding a single man can be like finding a needle in a haystack. Still, do what you can to match someone for your single female friend, she will appreciate the gesture.

Remember though, this is only a party and is meant to be for fun. Don’t overly stress over the details and whether you have enough men for the women. It will all be fine regardless.

You don’t want to worry to the point where every little thing looms large and gets overwhelming. There are big issues to plan for, like your menu, so that you don’t want to get bogged down in numbers and seating.

If you spend too much time worrying you miss out on the fun of spending time with your friends. Enjoying your friends’ company is the reason you are throwing the party in the first place. Just try to get the numbers to even up and leave it at that. Don’t worry about whether they will get along or find one another attractive.

You want to make sure that your proverbial extra men really can be extra, though. Don’t forget to check with the man if you haven’t spoken to him in a while, he may not still be single.

When this happens, you can’t uninvite them. That would be rude. You have to keep them and their partner on your guest list and find another single man to match for your single friend. Ask your original extra man whether he has friends who might fit this purpose.
