Speed dating statistics australia
Writing this story about dating I realised how much of our lives revolve around being online, I mean for many singles the first interactions they have with a potential partner is through an online service, there are emails, that turn into instant messages, that move to SMS.
Then and only then it might become a phone call, and oh my, the pain of actually having to meet someone!
but with dating there are other issues, I mean I’ve tried a ways of dating, and the first thing that struck me with online [specifically] instant messaging was the delay.
I just assumed the girl of my dreams on the other end was chatting to 30 other wannabes, so she was jumping between chats…
This is an interesting point, if the price is more than but less than 0 then you can be fairly certain it’s going to attract a particular type of crowd – the same goes if you pay for the night, it’s going to attract a completely different type of speed dater.
Melissa added that “I’m not going to lie, the person I’m dating, it matters that they can afford a decent event, it means they have a profession or skill that is valuable, plus that means they can also afford to take me out”.
So, back to the issues I see with online versus offline.
I know in my general day to day dealings I’ll generally tackle an issue by email or some form of electronic means, most of generation x & y would use an actual phone call as a distant second choice, but online doesn’t require me to have to real-time interact, I can pre-think what I want to say..
I guess in the past there has been some stigma to online dating and dating events, but for the most part I’d say as a society we’re well beyond that – in fact the majority of my single friends engage in some sort of dating assistance – be it a match making services, online or speed dating.Besides doing a Google search for speed dating (which lets face it, probably not a bad start) how else can you find a good speed dating company?
