When did dating get so complicated? Would You Be Brave Enough To Talk To Her On The Street?

There’s a plethora of hot, single women out there, on your mate’s Facebook page, being all hot and single and waiting, like you, to have a few fun dates with someone who isn’t a complete stranger or weirdo they’ve begrudgingly ticked on Tinder because they were bored.

Question. When did dating get so complicated? What happened to meeting someone through friends, at work or at the bus stop?
Most people are all for love in the digital age. Dating websites, Apps and organised events certainly have their place and can be a great outlet for busy people to make new friends. They’re also ludicrously lucrative business. Let’s face it, the real winners here aren’t the couples; they’re the ‘matchmakers’ who rented an area in a bar, charged people some amount of money and gave them some games to play. Because, really, what do these websites, Apps, services and events actually do? Find you your soul mate? Doubtful. Are we now so reliant on technology and have become so inept at socialising that we need to pay a stranger to put in the legwork for us? Yes, you can meet people through your iPhone; but you can also meet them the old fashioned way.
There are lots of couples. A handful of them who are currently dating someone they met through dating sites. Where this will lead, who knows? Good luck to them. Very few people who actually met online end up having a solid relationship. There are couples who met through friends, through work and, yes, even at a bus stop; at a festival, some might even meet in an automobile repair shop or even in a bar. Shocking, I know!

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Many single people have dated through many dating sites. They go through silent speed dating and something called Grouper, where you and a bloke are ‘matched’ via your Facebook profiles, interests and hobbies and set up on a date. You each bring along two mates to ease the embarrassment of the date. Grouper selects the bar, sets you up with the first round and off you go. In theory, this is a great idea. You’ve got three times as much chance of meeting someone, you could have a really fun night out and, if the date goes horribly wrong, at least you’ve got your mates with you to laugh it off and make a swift exit
But then after most of this failed dates, you would realize it would have been just as easy, and far more enjoyable, to have gone to the bar anyway, spotted blokes you actually fancied and just chatted to them yourselves.  You know, like in the olden days.
So, readers, these are my tasks for you:

  1. The next time you find yourself in the pub and see a hot woman, talk to her. Just start a conversation, maybe ask her on a date if the conversation goes well.
  2. Ask your girl mates to set you up with their mates. There’s a plethora of hot, single women out there, on your mate’s Facebook page, being all hot and single and waiting, like you, to have a few fun dates with someone who isn’t a complete stranger or weirdo they’ve begrudgingly ticked on dating sites because they were bored.

  4. Get more social within your job. Go to as many networking events, client lunches and team nights out as you can. You don’t need statistics to tell you how many couples met at work, just look around your friendship group.
  5. Be bold and confident. Fine, the anxiety/fear may set in when you start thinking of whether or not you’ll be welcomed. Ignore that voice in your head, just do it! we are all humans and no one has fire on his/her head. As long as you are well composed and mature about it with an unconventional approach, then, no cause for alarm. Remember, we all need something. we all want to be loved and we all want to be happy.

Websites and quirky dating ploys sure to make for interesting encounters, hilarious stories and, hell, even the odd match made in heaven. But let’s not lose sight of normal human interaction and socialising, eh chaps?
Good luck! 🙂
