Life has a way of throwing you curve balls. Not only am I now back on the dating scene at 46 but I am also in the depths of a pandemic.
Going out and meeting someone in a pub or bar is no longer an option. Meeting someone face to face in the supermarket is virtually impossible since everyone’s faces are covered and don’t get me started on the fact you cant even meet up with family let alone total strangers!
Date in a Dash is the market leader for speed dating within London but now also gives you the option of online dating.
Virtual dating online is all the fun and flirt of speed dating but from the comfort and safety of your own home. To join in you just need a webcam or camera with smartphone. You can relax at home with a drink and chat to around 15 people from London and surrounding areas.
The virtual date kicks off at 8pm and finishes at around 9pm. If using the website and webcam you will need to log back in the following day to upload and view your matches. If using your mobile phone and you have already entered your preference then you would be able to view your matches instantly after the event.
I love the idea of finding out straight away as you can then make the move to start chatting with your match. This way you get to talk some more and find out a little more about them than would normally happen if you were to meet someone out drinking for example. I am a good sense of character so chatting via message is a great way to suss out if you are feeling someones vibe before naturally dating.
With plenty of options for events including Drunk Jenga and Cards Against Humanity there is something for everyone. Life has changed things up so we all need to adapt, maybe the way couples connected on Demolition Man isn’t too far in our future.
For those who prefer a more traditional home-like experience when on vacation, a timeshare can make sense. If you’ve gotten many years of good use out of your timeshare and now want to get rid of it, a timeshare cancellation company like Timeshare Freedom Group or Lonestar transfer may be able to help.
