4 Great Ways to Date in 2020
Finding your perfect partner with these innovative dating ideas.
If you thought finding your perfect partner was hard last year, 2020 has stepped it up a gear. Fortunately, you don’t need to give up on love just yet. With these innovative dating ideas, 2020 could be your best year yet…
1. Host a virtual party
When you can’t head to the pub or hit the club, turn to tech to get you through. Virtual parties are the latest way to socialize, so renew your Zoom, Skype or Houseparty subscription and get ready to mingle.
Invite friends and encourage them to do the same – before you know it, you’ll be turning people away at the screen. If you want to expand your social circle, try virtual parties with strangers. Many people are enjoying virtual get-togethers, so now could be the perfect time to meet somebody new.
2. Try speed dating
No-one wants to waste their time or their best lines on a date that’s doomed to failure. Cut to the chase with speed dating and meet a bunch of single and available guys and girls in record time. With just four minutes to make a good impression, it won’t take long to sort the wheat from the chaff.
In more normal times, speed dating also gives you a great way to experience the best venues in your town or city. With millions of people in self-isolation, however, speed dating is going digital. Sign up online and make speed dating your digital social event of the week.
3. Get Mobile
If you’re looking for love, no stone can be left unturned – literally. If you haven’t fully embraced online dating, it’s never too late to start. Today’s dating scene is largely focused online, so you’re definitely missing out if you’re not swiping right. Perhaps you’ve already signed up to no avail? Fear not. As online dating has become more mainstream, the chances of receiving unsolicited pics have decreased…slightly.
Tinder, Happn, Grindr, Hinge and Coffee Meets Bagel are amongst the most popular options and you can access them all from any location. Whether you’re at home, work or getting groceries, there’s never a bad time to find love so activate your profile and watch the messages come rolling in.
4. Head outside
Meeting someone and exchanging numbers may sound a little retro in the digital age but it’s due to make a comeback in 2020. As lockdown is relaxed and people are free to get back on the social scene, face-to-face interactions will be on the up.
While online dating and digital connections are a delightful addition to the dating scene (most of the time), you may have to get to know your next date in person before you can creep on social media.
Dating Trends to Look Out For
Dating brings out the best – and worst – in people, so be on the look out for a whole host of new trends this year. Steer clear of exoskeletons, stop fleabagging and be prepared to start yellow carding if you want to succeed on the dating scene in 2020.
