Dating Style

In today's wired world, technology plays such as pervasive role that our lives get more and more intertwined with it. It's not just a work tool or a way of entertaining ourselves, it has gone beyond news and information research to become much more personal.

Social media is now indispensable to promote brands and to connect them on a deeper level to target audiences. Technology has also proven successful in finding romance, offering ease and convenience. Most people chat with a potential date online for one or two weeks before meeting up in person, which is a fairly quick process.

There are concerns about safety on dating sites but the lack of honesty is one of the most common pitfalls. Women lie about their looks whilst men lie about their jobs. This is probably why most people stalk their potential dates online before meeting up in person.

Women also read profiles more closely than men, who spend more time reviewing photos. These multiple surveys' results raise fundamental questions about us... Despite its growing popularity, my attitude towards online dating is quite skeptical.

But whether online or offline (most married couples meet through work or friends), a date is always a pleasurable experience even if it is with someone who is already our partner. London has a lot to offer when it comes to beautifully designed restaurants and bars and in the summer there's nothing like rooftop drinking! Have fun!
