Why are people turning away from Dating apps and going back to in-person Speed Dating?

The past year has brought about many changes, and one of those is the way in which we date. If you tried dating online during lockdown, you no doubt know how frustrating this process can be. Keep reading to discover why so many people are turning away from dating apps and trying out in-person Speed Dating events this year.

It’s time to connect face-to-face

We’ve all spent far too much of the past year talking to colleagues and family members on Zoom. It’s time to put away your laptop and phone and start meeting people face-to-face again. When it comes to dating, it’s so hard to see what someone is really like through a screen. Some people are far more confident online, while others really hate using technology. Let your personality shine through at one of our Branch Out Social Speed Dating events. You’ll have the chance to meet people from all walks of life in a safe environment and spend time finding out if you would be a good match.

Enjoy a new dating experience

If you are bored of the same mundane questions on dating apps, mix things up by attending an in-person Speed Dating event. We’ll offer you a variety of conversation prompts which are anything but boring. You’ll soon get to know your potential date while also having a laugh at the same time. Our attendees love that they get the chance to have fun and engaging conversations, which are so much better than the dull back and forth chats dating apps are known for.

No more fears of getting ghosted

The great thing about in-person Speed Dating is that you quickly find out if someone is interested in you or not. You don’t have to spend hours texting online, only to get ghosted a few days later. Instead, you’ll simply state whether you are interested or not after a short amount of time chatting to someone. It’s much less draining, and you’ll find that you don’t leave feeling discouraged like you may on dating apps.

A safe experience

While the internet has added so many great things to our lives, there’s no denying that there are some odd people online. If you are concerned about the safety of using dating apps, you won’t have to worry about that at our Branch Out Social events. Instead, we choose a safe and central location where you can relax and enjoy meeting other participants. Our trained team of event hosts will be on hand at each event, so if you have any concerns, you can turn to one of them immediately.

As you can see, there are so many reasons to give Speed Dating events a try this year. You’ll find it to be a refreshing break from dating apps, and you’ll enjoy meeting potential dates and friends in a safe environment. Are you ready to book in for your first Speed Dating event?
