In this blog post, we will discuss the top three alternatives to online dating. Keep reading to learn more! Online dating, especially because of the rise of the pandemic, has grown exponentially. Chances are you’ve given it a try yourself! And chances are that you’ve also experienced downfalls in the world of online dating. Things like ghosting, catfishing, and dealing with unsolicited messages are just a few of the issues you may have faced. If you’re tired of online dating or if it’s just not working out for you, don’t worry! There are other ways to meet people.
Alternative 1: Asking for Mutual Connections
One alternative to online dating is meeting people through friends-of-friends. Mutual friends can be tricky, especially because if it doesn’t work out, you’ll still have to see them at social gatherings and whatnot. But it’s worth a shot, especially if you have a friend who can vouch for the person.
Alternative 2: Finding Local Groups and Singles Events
Another alternative is dating events. This could be anything from speed dating to attending singles mixers. It might seem daunting to put yourself out there like that but you never know. Bloom Matchmaking hosts regular dating events (see our upcoming Singles Cruise here), but there’s no shortage of dating events all over Richmond, DC, Virginia Beach, and even the country. Try checking out Meetup for groups.
Alternative 3: Working With a Matchmaker
Finally, we have working with a matchmaker. A lot of people think that working with a matchmaker is only for the wealthy or desperate, but that’s not true. Sure, it costs money but you’re essentially paying for someone to do all the work for you. And let’s be honest, most of us could use a little help when it comes to dating. Matchmaking is an almost sure-fire way to meet someone in a way that’s convenient, stress-free, and completely personalized to you as a person. Get a free initial session by clicking here.
