Being single is fun and does have its advantages but for those who are looking to settle down with someone, finding the right partner is not an easy task. Sure there are online dating websites and dating apps but in my experience I hear more horror stories from online dating that amazing stories. A lot of people have tried online dating, whether it’s through one of the popular online dating sites or dating apps like tinder or Hapn, there are not a lot of people who have tried speed dating before.
Online dating does have its place in the world but it is not without its flaws and limitations. From being time consuming to the extremely daunting task of summing your entire personality on one page that is commonly known as your profile. Online dating like anything else in this world has its advantages and disadvantages. A couple of advantages of online dating for example is being able to contact people while you’re sitting on the train or on the toilet, another is that you can make yourself sound like the most interesting person in the world and even bend the truth by photo shopping your picture. You have time to doctor your messages and make sure they are perfect before you send them to someone.
Whilst these are advantages, they also contribute to one of the biggest flaws of online dating and that is Authenticity. I have tried online dating myself and have spoken to a lot of men and women who have tried it also and I can’t tell you how many times people have told me that they met someone who looked nothing like their pictures or that were incredibly boring face to face.
These flaws are eliminated when it comes to going to a speed dating event. When you are on a mini-date with someone, you instantly get a feel for that person. You can see how they look, talk, act, react and more within a matter of minutes. Through that time period you will get a better and more accurate impression of who that person is as opposed to spending weeks talking to someone online.
When you go on a date with someone who you matched with at a speed dating event, you will already know what to expect because you have already met that person, you will also be much more comfortable as you have already built some level of rapport beforehand but most importantly, you will know that person is interested in you because they have already matched with you.
Speed dating is not only fun, exciting and effective but it also brings back the human element of interacting with other people in a world where we are communicate less and less with one another and that is why speed dating is awesome.
