In recent years, reality TV dating shows like Dating in the Dark, Dinner Date, First Dates, Love Island, Take Me Out and The Undateables, have taken the spotlight and caused quite a debate in the world of dating. Whether you love them or hate them, one thing you can be sure of is that they open up your eyes to the world of modern dating and just what lengths people will go to to find that special someone.
In the RSVP Dating Agency Head Office, there is a divide between the reality TV dating shows that we are not afraid to say we indulge in – some we favour more than others, but one thing we can agree on is that we have learnt some love lessons from our guilty addictions.
1. You can’t force chemistry
When it comes to reality TV, some will fight hard for the spotlight – even faking or forcing chemistry that isn’t really there. But, as we tell our members, you can’t force that elusive chemistry – it’s either there or it isn’t.
2. Don’t be so dramatic
All reality TV dating shows are dramatised on some level to get viewers talking and tuned in and that shouldn’t be something you look for in a real relationship. With any relationship you enter into, minimal drama should be the goal.
3. Be yourself
In order to attract true love, you have to be true to yourself and to others. Imagine how a little white lie when you first meet can become so much more months down the line as the relationship develops.
4. There’s more to love than attraction
So many of us confuse love with lust, but, as we’ve seen on numerous reality TV dating shows, the couple that gets together rarely stays together in the end. That’s probably because they both realised that yes, they like each other and are attracted to each other, but you need something much stronger than that to make it last.
Whichever reality TV dating show you indulge in, the scenes that we see on screen are not worlds away from the stories that we hear from prospective members who tell us about their disastrous dates in the hope that RSVP can offer them something different from what they have already experienced.
Here at RSVP Dating Agency and Singles Club, we take the hard work out of dating. We don’t need you to cook a fancy three-course meal to get picked for a date or spend eight weeks locked in a villa with 11 strangers; all we need is an hour of your time to find out about you, your hobbies and interests and what you are looking for in a partner, and our expert matchmakers can handle the rest.
With two alternative routes on offer – RSVP singles events and the RSVP matchmaking service, we can double your chances of finding that someone special. If your current dating method is not working for you and you want to try something new, why not get in touch and arrange an appointment with one of our expert dating consultants?
