Tinder vs Speed Dating

Dating Apps seem to be all the rage with the young generation these days.  Dating Apps like Plenty of Fish, Zoosk, E-Harmony and Tinder are all popular these days.  Maybe it is the inexperience of dating or just having grown up with modern day technology, but alot of the 20-30 year old Singles Event Melbourne singletons prefer these dating apps to actually meeting face to face at Speed Dating Sydney Events.

Is Speed Dating still a thing in 2023 ?   With nearly 20 years of running Speed Dating events here in Australia, Speed Dating has really stood the test of time.  You get to meet 15 singles in just a couple of hours.

We have had many clients tell us that they have little to no luck with these Dating apps.  They have a few dates with their help, but they give such a false interpretation and expectations of the person you are speaking or texting to most of the time.

Our client's prefer talking to someone face to face for the first time as there is alot less pressure than going through a dating app such as Tinder Zoosk, Match.com etc. Bio descriptions and photos are often photoshopped or exaggerated. Feedback for all the single girls out there is that alot of these guys on Tinder select 30 and under in their search profiles.

Tracey who went to one of our Speed Dating Adelaide Events

: “I like it personally because you get the personal interaction that is lost on dating apps. I really prefer getting to know somebody in person because you get to pick up on things that you normally would not pick up on with dating apps like Tinder.”

Since the introduction of Tingle, Tinder, Grindr, Zoosk and numerous other dating apps, the attention span of the dating world has shrunk.  People want results fast and without fuss.  It is not like ordering a product from Ebay.  Swiping on dating apps like Tinder are quick and easy to do from the joy of your own lounge room but since when was anything good in life that easy ?  You have to put yourself out there, meet people face to face.  Speed Dating Events, you get to meet 15 similarly aged Singles Events in just one fun night.  All the hard work is done for you.
