Even the word, dating, is enough to cause many of us to sigh or shudder as we remember THAT terrible first date (details omitted for a reason). In a world of swiping at our fingertips, growing polyamory and a ‘thankyou next’ attitude, dating culture is possibly taking a turn for the worse. We smile fondly as we listen to the romantic stories of how our grandparents met and, the very same evening we get into bed and fulfil our daily ‘routine’ of scrolling through our online matches, rolling our eyes before heading to work again the next day.
Love today is as much a desire for humanity as it was in the days of exchanging wax-sealed letters but oh, how it’s evolved. Apps, updating our bios so we seem that bit more interesting and attending those downright weird London dating events are all part of the act. And, all of this because we believe in the hope of finding the one.
Have we complicated the notion of dating, or is dating truly more difficult in the XXI century?
Elite dating in and outside of London has evolved due to cultural shifts and increasing social media use. Reading between the lines, cyber-stalking our love interests by keeping tabs on what they’re ‘liking’ and avoiding asking direct questions have all been born from the use of such platforms. With less face-to-face communication, we quickly sift through people and as swiftly move on. Everything seems to have taken on an ‘ISH’ status when it comes to dating.
Having consistently dated(ish) someone for 2-3 months, the guise of knowing the person can quickly shatter leaving you promising yourself you’ll not go through it all again. But, you quickly find yourself sat at a table at yet another singles event in London staring into the abyss of an all too familiar glass of merlot. Whether you’re simply looking for a hookup or something more serious you can push beyond the vicious cycle of apps such as Tinder, Bumble and Hinge. The answer is GreyZone Club.
