The dating game has changed a lot over the past couple of decades since the world wide web went mainstream. The old Lonely Hearts clubs and blind dates arranged by friends have given way to the more modern concepts of online dating and speed dating in terms of the most popular ways that people date with strangers.
But although these new strategies have their merits and have undoubtedly let to romantic success in many cases, they are not without their problems and leave a lot of people feeling as if their needs are not being met.
Let’s start with speed dating. This is a matchmaking process where people attend an event and have a series of 5-7 minute chats with prospective “dates” in quick succession to see if they click and want to take things further. It’s obviously designed with busy modern day professionals in mind, cosmopolitan singles who don’t want to sacrifice a whole evening on someone they might not even like.
But although you get a few minutes and questions to screen potential partners, it’s all too brief and in an environment far too removed from reality to be of any real use. Five minutes is enough time to weed out those you really dislike or don’t fancy, but not long enough to work out anything else. The chance of romantic success is probably the same as throwing a stick in Hyde park and dating the first person to pick it up.
Online dating has a slightly higher success rate, but the dating sites are still full of users who struggle to find fulfilment or who end up giving up after one too many bad dates. Perhaps the problems are similar to speed dating. Although this process involves full dates rather than 5 minute chats, you’re still bombarded with messages, likes, thousands of other user profiles distracting you. You become overwhelmed, making snap decisions on faceless messages or complex algorithms trying to reduce everything to maths, swiping left or right based on a picture…
The problem with these concepts is there’s too much pressure on getting it right and finding “the one”. Each encounter is loaded with expectation. True romance and companionship takes time to grow in a more natural environment. For those fed up with the same old same old of standard dating sites, it’s time for a new approach…
