These days, online dating is based mostly on your appearance and maybe a few words about yourself. Brit.Co is now suggesting that if you're not getting the success that you are hoping for with online dating, maybe give good 'ol fashion blind dating a try instead!

  • It allows for an actual first impression instead of just a couple of seconds on a screen and a swipe left or right. Online dating can portray a person in a very different light than how they are in real life, so meeting someone in person instead of on your phone screen might be a better option for you.
  • It's straightforward because it takes a friend who knows you well to arrange the date, and they will know what you are looking for in a partner way more than any dating app would know.
  • It can lead to new friendships if nothing else! If you and your blind date don't end up being a good match, you can at least make a new friend out of the whole thing.

Dating is a tricky part of life, however if you're looking for love, it can't hurt to have your friends help you out a little bit and set you up on a blind date or two!
