Find your someone special

Everyone agrees that it’s getting more and more difficult to find a partner these days.

Back in the day when there were dance halls in every town in Ireland, finding someone to date was very easy.

A guy walked up to a girl and asked her to dance. If she said no, he just continued on his way and asked another girl. Eventually someone would say yes to him and eventually one of these girls would turn into his girlfriend and then his wife. Easy peasy!

Nowadays though, it isn’t that simple. If you haven’t met someone in college or in the workplace and find you’re heading into your thirties, it can be a little daunting out socialising looking for your soulmate.

Well, a lot of people put a profile on an internet dating site and some do get lucky. If you’re willing to invest a few hours a week to methodically work your way through online profiles, you could find a gem in there and lots of people do.

However, others feel uncomfortable putting up their photo for all and sundry to see or they have been unlucky in finding people whose online profile resembles their offline one.

Others join social clubs such as hillwalking and other sports related clubs, drama groups, night courses, dance classes, etc.

The internet is full of ideas of what you can do to widen your circle of friends.

The more you get out and get involved in activities with people who are looking for the same thing as you are, the more you increase your chances of meeting your special someone.

Or you could check out meetup.com for groups of people who want to meet others for friendship and who knows, friendship could lead to romance if you’re lucky! Fortune favours the brave and all that!

Or have you considered joining a dating agency? The advantage of using a dating agency is that it is totally confidential and you get a one to one personalised service. You are opening yourself up to the possibility of going on dates with potential partners and having access to a database of people looking for long term committed relationships just like you.

Two Hearts Meet started its dating agency in Cork in 2011 and is now one of the biggest dating agencies in Munster. Since early this year it is expanding into the midlands, Dublin and Galway to give clients a wider choice of people to date. The age bracket of its clients go from late 20s to mid 70s which goes to show you are never too old to find love!

Two Hearts Meet can be contacted on 085-7742444 or check out Twoheartsdating.com.
