Nowadays, there are so many different ways to try and meet that special someone.
So, where do you begin?
There is of course the old fashioned way, where you get dolled up, actually leave the house, go out to a bar or nightclub with your girlfriends in the hopes that you are approached by that elusive tall, dark and handsome man who buys you a cocktail, sweeps you off your feet – and… Voila! You’re in love!
Alternatively, you could dress up a little more than you usually would to do your grocery shopping, and comment on that very juicy pear to the cute shopper next to you whilst giving it a gentle squeeze – Ta da! He sweeps you off your feet and you’re in love!
But how often does that happen? – Almost never right?
Then there is of course, the internet! Ah the internet! What the hell did we ever do before this fine invention? Now we can meet someone without even leaving the house! With dating websites like RSVP and Eharmony and now smart phone applications such as Tinder, it’s getting easier and easier to increase your chances of meeting the man of your dreams.
Whether we’re busy juggling work, trying to meet regular commitments or are just plain lazy, online can be a great way of meeting someone.
How about we start getting back out there a little more though? Like actually trying to meet people by leaving the house, you know moving our bodies and walking out the front door?
Even if you don’t meet the man of your dreams, you still may make some new friends, enjoy a different experience or discover a new venue.
I thought about this and wondered whether or not specific singles events were still around. Or are we too far into the future of technology, that it is all now internet based?
We are in luck. It would seem that no longer do we have to trawl the bars and clubs eyeing off prospective partners without even knowing if they are single – these days more and more events are put on with us singles in mind. I refer to speed dating, singles balls and the like.
Looking into the options out there I discovered a fairly new Perth based company called ‘The Dating Boutique’, a dating service run by Zally and Tanya. Two women who were fed up with bad dates and bad websites, and decided to take dating into their own hands!
The thing that caught my attention about this particular dating service is that it caters for almost everyone. FIFO Workers, Single parents, same sex partners, people with disabilities – you name it.
If you’ve never done this type of thing before, or you’re just a little bit unsure about the whole thing, why not look at meeting someone through a safe environment like a dating service.
The team at the Dating Boutique will do their best to match you up with someone compatible, offer lots of fun regular events for you to attend and will even organize your date for you! It doesn’t get much easier than that! Check out their website for upcoming events and more details about the services they offer – http://www.thedatingboutique.com.au/findlove/
With services like this and many more available in Perth, the chances of meeting your special someone may be higher than you think!
Get out of your comfort zone and find a new way to meet that special someone for you!
Watch this space – I will be ‘trialling’ some myself in the coming months.
As always, I would love to hear from you about your dating experiences! Please get in touch with me via the contact page. Xx
