In some ways virtual dating is a different ballgame from meeting someone in real life – and in some ways it is not. As someone who can speak with experience and direct commentary on dating today, it’s a well-known fact that dating at any time is not for the faint of heart or those easily discouraged. As the old saying goes that you must kiss a lot of frogs to find a prince—and yes it kind of applies, however fortunately for you I know a lot of frogs. Nevertheless, there is by no means a guarantee for meeting the love of your life, however I can guarantee there is one in the bunch that you might want to take a chance on.
During this delicate time when finding love has been disrupted, for the most part, my clients have been open to a virtual date after receiving a recommendation of a profile that is a good match. It’s a chance to make an effort to get to know someone virtually by a pre-face-to-face meeting and there are certain aspects of a relationship potential you might be able to gather before a real in person date in the near future. However, there are certain aspects of a relationship you are never going to be able to gather from online interactions alone. In these times we suggest not drawing out the pre-face-to-face meeting for too long and for those who feel comfortable have enjoyed a social distancing walk as the next step with success.
Here are a few virtual date feedbacks from actual clients:
- “It was good-nice 30 min conversation. Cold introductions aren’t easy and I am a firm believer in connection. He’s intelligent, thoughtful, engaged. I will have another conversation with him, probably facetime and see how it goes.”…..Janine
- “John and I are “seeing” each other and we would like to let you know we enjoy our time together”……Heather
- “It was good. We talked for a while. She is interesting”…… John
Dating should be fun and it shouldn’t feel like work. Check in with yourself regularly and if it’s feeling like a chore you’re not enjoying yourself, then take a break and wait for the opportunity for when things return to REAL face-to-face dating. It will be here before you know it.
