As experienced matchmakers we understand that single professionals have a busy lifestyle and that it can be difficult to find time for your friends, let alone dating. A successful career often comes with long working hours and frequent travel resulting in your personal life being put on the back burner.
A professional matchmaking service really can have exceptional results, introducing you to like-minded single people who are looking for a genuine relationship. For busy professionals who would like a relationship, having your own personal matchmaker working discreetly on your behalf can be a real benefit.
The INTRO matchmaking team has put together their top 8 tips for professional singles looking for love.
First of all, it might sound obvious but you do have to make time for dating – although you have a hectic schedule, it is key to make time to meet up with dates.
Meet in person as soon as possible – nothing can replace meeting face-to-face as false hopes can be built up by continuous text conversations. Select a meeting place that is convenient for you both, somewhere with a good atmosphere and not too busy or where your colleagues are likely to be. You want to be able to relax and focus on your date.
Short and sweet – we recommend meeting for a coffee for your first date, perhaps in your lunch break, which as a busy professional saves you precious time and also reduces the pressure.
Arrive on time – we advise being punctual to meet your date as they are likely to have as busy a schedule as you.
Be yourself – it really is the best version of you. Be genuine and don’t try too hard to impress your date.
Be attentive – we recommend turning off your mobile while you’re with your date, especially a first date, to avoid work distractions.
After the date, follow up with a message thanking them for meeting you and if you would like to see each other again, suggest getting together again, perhaps over lunch or dinner.
When things work out and your relationship develops, it’s important to make time for your partner – arrangements and time together can be the first thing to go by the wayside as it might feel easier to cancel than a work commitment. When you are both busy, put time in your diaries for dates and weekends away together. Successful relationships require effort and compromise, all of which is so worthwhile.
