Dating in 2018: Why It’s Time To Get Real

Dating in 2018: Why It’s Time To Get Real

Looking for love in 2018?  Find out why dating is about to get real…

It’s Over For Game-Players

2017 was a year of secrets revealed and slipping masks.  Most notably, world leaders and political systems were exposed as never before.  Furthermore, the entertainment industry – a place where the truth had been hushed up for years – held its hands up to gross misuses of power.  Communities were forced to confront their harshest truths.  Subsequently, our own personal relationships fell under the microscope.  Only the strongest survived.

What Will Single People Be Looking For in 2018?

Authenticity will be key in 2018.  As a result, dating apps and online agencies without ID checks will become less appealing.  Single men and women no longer want to brush off awkward and potentially dangerous situations.  Dating will be about accepting your true self.  Consequently, you’ll be looking for honesty in a partner.

Is the Dating Industry Ready For Change?

Change is exactly what the Dating Agency Association and its members have been pushing for.  As a result, Searchmate is thrilled to be able to offer the largest client list of ID checked single men and women in the UK.  We know that authenticity is key.  Our clients recoil at the thought of putting themselves at risk.  Therefore, we help them to build relationships based on trust from the get-go.

How to Avoid a Negative Dating Experience

We’ve all heard of them. The horror stories various people have experienced from using online dating websites. You’ve probably heard tales along the following; someone going to meet someone for a date and realising that they look different to what they are on their profile. Dating someone only to realise later on that they are not who they say they are. Then arguably the biggest horror, people realising that they’ve been duped financially through online dating sites.

These kinds of horror stories are common amongst people. However, many people still brave the world of online dating and use it as a way to meet their future partner. There is nothing wrong with turning to online dating as a legitimate alternative for dating but there are plenty of ways that you can do this in a way that minimises the chances of being duped online. The first thing to do is to never use an online dating site that makes your info public and there are plenty of them. (knowing which one is certainly like looking for a needle in a haystack!)

Instead, you need to make sure you are using a trusted dating agency. How can you know you can trust a dating site? Well, it’s actually simple because there are a few things that you need to look out for. For starters, look for whether or not your info is kept 100% confidential. This will ensure that your info can never be made public like it can on many online dating sites. Secondly, are there any processes involved whereby precautions are taken to guarantee the identity of each member?

For example, a trusted dating agency will use certain precautions and measures to make sure that each of its members are who they say they are. They will conduct face to face interviews with each potential member so they can accurately verify this person’s identity and find out more about them and their personality and most importantly ensure they will be a genuine single. These kinds of precautions and measures are what ensures you can trust a dating site and that you won’t be duped like with many online dating sites out there.
