Are Group Events The Next Logical Step To Online Dating?

Match.com has made a lot of news with their recent foray into board game nights and other events that brings members together.

But is this a good idea?

Online dating is for bring people together to find love.

Face-to-face events are for bringing people together to share a common interest that may not quite include looking for more than a possible game partner.

And if you meet someone on a dating service and go to meet them for the requisite coffee date you can always bow out early with some excuse or other.

But on a game night set up by your dating service, meeting with someone you first met online with the same intention of finding love, can your common game interest make up for any dating choice date you may have made of just meeting to play a game?

How do you walk out on a game without ruining your other chances with possible matches?

My suggestion here is to not search out your potential game play partners before you show up for game night.

Some times too much information can be a bad thing.

Match.com - View Singles in Your Area

Match.com – View Singles in Your Area

Match.com becomes the main sponsor of ITV’s new show (coming soon) “Girlfri3nds”.

Girlfri3nds is a new series in which three single women of different ages, life experiences and backgrounds meet for the first time with a common goal— to find true love. As they search for a partner, they will share their lives and emotionally support one another during the dating and decision-making process?

The eight part series hosted by Emma Willis will offer an exciting twist as our singletons face a host of make or break decisions. At the end of each episode, the three girls and their ‘dates’ will decide if they wish to continue seeing each other, but the feeling has to be mutual?

Will this be a match made in heaven or just another dating disaster?

The new series will kick-start with an audition in which a hundred men from all over the country ‘pitch’ themselves to the three women. Each of the women will have to select six men who they would like to ‘date’ but the pressure is on as they will have only a few minutes to decide if they would like to get to know them further but will the men feel the same way?

Each week, viewers will follow our singletons as together they embark on a series of dating scenarios with their potential suitors. The series will follow their preparations, nerves and trepidation as they get to know more about the men they have chosen.

Three single girls are all on the search for their soulmate, 23 year old air hostess Amy, 29 year old single mum Sarah and 25 year old career girl Laura are brought together to whittle down 100 guys to their favourite man.

This week we see the first 50 men cross the threshold of the mansion house the girls will be living in, they must pick 6 they want to see again, which guys will come in and take the girls fancy and who will be shown the door?

With their fate placed firmly in their hands, each episode will culminate with an elimination as their ‘dates’ are whittled down until they have just one decision to make…. will our three single ladies finally meet their Mr Right or will they be left out in the cold?

Emma Willis said, “’I am beyond thrilled to be a part of Girlfri3nds. I love to watch a good romance blossom, so to be asked to be a part of that process is genuinely exciting.”
Download the pdf here and meet the three women. Girlfri3nds is a Studio Lambert production for ITV2.
