I love you, I love you not

Frank Partnoy’s book “Wait- The Useful Art of Procrastination” shares a section on why speed dating is not ideal. Singles who participate in speed dating have little time to engage with potential suitors. They are left with quick impressions and snap judgments that are not likely to identify an ideal partner.

In contrast, Partnoy examines the dating company “It’s Just Lunch.” Their approach is to survey clients and arrange a lunch date with someone compatible with your profile. The “It’s Just Lunch” company found that, unlike speed dating, an entire lunch allows for a more in-depth conversation. Participants are then given the rest of the day to think about the experience before agreeing to a future lunch. Having plenty of time to evaluate your experience and feelings makes a lot of sense, especially when choosing a future partner.

FAIRWAY, KS (KCTV) – “This Valentine’s Day, there are more ways to look for love than ever. With so many different online dating apps, it can be overwhelming sifting through all those profiles. So, more traditional dating services are making a comeback, even for millennials. Matchmakers take a more personal approach and do all the homework for you. They’ll get to know you, find out what kind of relationship you’re looking for and set you up with people who match your interests. It’s always been popular with middle aged folks looking for love but now many millennials are turning to it as well. Young professionals are tired of the time dating apps take.

It’s Just Lunch, a national matchmaking service, says they’re starting to see more millennial young professionals interested in their service, especially in the big cities on the East and West coasts.

“By using a matchmaking service, we are allowing the clients to really skip all of the emailing, chatting, and just get that face-to-face to see if there’s a connection. Which is more or less is what they want. Just to see if there’s a connection and if not move on to another potential match”.
