Offline dating site
According to a recent US survey of 1000 millennials, up to 95pc say they would rather meet someone IRL than online.
Welcome to the world of Tinder fatigue – symptoms include deleting and re-downloading the app multiple times a year and casting your eyes to heaven every time someone says they're 'not looking for anything serious' in their bio.
You can side step this by going at an off-peak time, researching the venue ahead of time, calling to see if there are any private events that day and waiting in line for your date ahead of time at the location to save her a seat. Often times things may not go as planned — someone is late, the venue is closed unexpectedly, the weather takes a turn for the worst, a private event take over the venue etc. It shows you are thoughtful, creative and considerate.
It pays to research for such scenarios ahead of time. Ideally places that are nearby within walking distance or at least easily accessible via a cab or public transportation.
Many people fail to put enough thought and research into a date.
Whether it's Tinder, Do I Date, She or Bumble, sometimes the process seems like a lot of swiping and messaging, but not a lot of actual dating.
This has led to a revival of classic dating techniques, from back in the day when people actually met each other organically rather than via a smart phone.
