Finding a partner is all about finding someone you can get on the same level with. Where you find your date and how you date can all help you find that special person. Here are just a few ways in which you can better focus your methods.
Find your age range
Finding someone the right age is important. Fortunately there are now dating sites that are being set up for specific age groups such as mature dating sites and teen dating sites, so that not everyone has to fish in the same pool so to speak. Suiting social events and places to your age demographic can also help you find the right person for you. For those looking for someone a little more mature, ditch the young bars and clubs and try wine bars, singles cruises and tasting events.
Pay can be important
Finding someone on the same financial level can also be vital if you both want to pursue the same life goals and be able to enjoy the same things, whether it be luxuries or the little things in life. Similar to age-specific sites, there are now dating sites more catered for working professionals. Using these services could help focus and speed up your search for a date.
A mutual interest is the best conversation starter in a date. This could be anything from a shared hobby to a shared cause. There are some dating services set up for such demographics, but quite often you may be better off joining a club that matches this hobby or interest. Try a new sport, go to an art class, visit a wine festival or volunteer at a local charity event. Even if you don’t meet someone there, clubs and events can expand your social circle, which in turn could lead you to meet someone through a friend of a friend who may also share common interests.
Finding the perfect personality for you
A person’s personality is complicated and there’s no real way of finding or even knowing who that perfect person is. Some dating sites will try to match you with someone of the same personality, based off of questions or personality tests, but this isn’t always accurate. We all want someone with a winning personality, but it’s often best to cast the net wide and focus later. There are lots of ways of gaging someone’s personality off of the first date. In fact, what you do on your date can be a great way of trialling this out. Escape rooms for example are becoming a popular method of first date, both putting you under pressure and requiring you to work together. This could be an exciting change of pace from your average hook-up at a pub or a coffee bar. However, others may find this jump in the deep end a little too scary.
