Ny speed dating events dating search company scams
The company threw a similar stunt in London last July, where singles decorated their bags with doodles and 140-character fun facts about themselves.“Mobile dating has been trivialized by apps that focus too much on speed and looks, and too little on essential human qualities,” says Dr.
Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic, Loveflutter’s relationship psychologist. “Wit is sexier than looks, and unlike looks it determines long-term compatibility.” The current crop of picture-perfect dating apps, such as Tinder and Grindr, emphasize face value.
Users make a snap judgment based on someone’s profile shot, and in Tinder’s case they swipe them to the right or the left as they deem them hot or not.
But participants had such a blast hooking up at Loveflutter’s anti-Tinder party that the hosts are bringing it across the pond, beginning with NYC — and not a minute too soon, say singles.
“Dating here is definitely more complicated than anywhere else,” says Alida Brandenburg, 30, who moved to Williamsburg from San Francisco a year ago.
Enter “Paper Bag Speed Dating” at the New York Hall of Science on Wednesday, where participants meet potential matches by donning the humble lunch tote.
The event, hosted by London-based dating app Loveflutter, is pushing its #Say No To Shallow campaign to showcase personality over appearance.
