Light at the end of the tunnel - Roadmap out of dating in lockdown

The matchmaking team at RSVP Introductions are jumping for joy following yesterday’s brilliant news that came from Number 10.

From April 12, outdoor meeting will be allowed. From May 17th, indoor meeting will be allowed. From June 21st, social contact limits are to be lifted and all hospitality venues are to reopen.

With the news of the roadmap out of lockdown being announced, we at RSVP are delighted to announce that we are planning a full calendar of face-to-face singles events for the second half of 2021.

We are grateful to be going back to hosting events such as our outdoor walking rambles for our members who like to take things at a chilled-out pace, from 29th March onwards, and we look forward to hosting our sporting events, including quad biking adventure days, for the adrenaline junkies amongst us.

As you can imagine, the past 6 months have been incredibly busy for us, what with people having nothing but time on their hands so we are excited to bring a full roster of events to you.

We anticipate our upcoming events to sell out within a matter of days as they are announced. To avoid missing out, be sure to follow ‘RSVP Dating Agency and Singles Club’ on Facebook and keep your eyes peeled for announcements on our website, https://www.rsvp-int.co.uk

Recent events have taught us just how precious the time that we have is. We have learned not to wait to find someone who will make you happy. We have learned about the importance of being able to share the opportunity to make special memories with a partner and we have learned that life is to short.

For a no obligation conversation with one of our friendly, expert matchmaking team, email in at enquiries@rsvpgroup.co.uk or give us a call, at our expense, on 0800 773 7700.

We look forward to getting on with our lives and look forward to seeing you soon!

What distance are you willing to travel to meet that special someone?

At RSVP Dating Agency and Singles Club, age is something that is discussed on a daily basis. When our
experienced Dating Consultants meet with new members, they work with them to set out their criteria including how far are you willing to travel to meet someone.  Is 20 miles from your house or less the perfect distance, or are you willing to look at 50 or even 100 miles from where you live?

We like to think we act GLOBALLY, but we often end up acting LOCALLY.

But it is really important to consider the decision you make as it will determine the available pool of candidates to pull from. It's true that it is much easier to meet someone for a lunch date or a cup of coffee the nearer to you that they live, however you really don't want to limit your options. Distance can make a huge difference. If you’re prepared to see people who live 100 miles away (you only need travel 50 miles if you meet half way), you’re covering an area four times bigger - with probably four times as many potential matches in it - than if you specify 50 miles.

So if you really are looking for a soul mate or long term partner you need to be realistic that the ideal person for you might be some distance away. After all, you haven’t met them yet! And with so many new ways to stay in contact virtually these days, distance need not be a barrier.

We have so many dating success stories where members have set their mileage range for potential introductions but then attended one of our hosted singles events or received an introduction outside their initial request where romance blossomed and the distance failed to matter .

Over our 29 years, we have learnt that distance; just like height, dress size and age, really is just a number. When it comes down to it, if everything else fits the bill do you really want to turn down the chance that they could be the one, all for the sake of a number?

Valentine’s Day – that dreaded time of year for singles everywhere.

As we approach Valentine’s Day 2021, with National Lockdown restrictions still in place, it is likely to be even more disheartening for single people this year. Finding love at any time is tough – but during a pandemic it can seem impossible. And when there is no hiding from all the reminders that Valentine’s Day is upon us it can feel even more isolating. 

So, if you find yourself feeling lonely and frustrated as you see all those adverts with happy couples spending lockdown together, why not make 2021 the year you proactively seek out someone special?

There is no time like the present!

No matter how you decide to find a partner – be it online dating apps or using the expertise and support of a Matchmaker – make sure you do something - be proactive. This year, you are even less likely to bump into Mr or Mrs Right wandering around the supermarket or at work.  You need to take some positive action to start your dating journey this month.

Make the most of the work we find ourselves in.

So, we have established that you are not likely to bump into the love of your life during lockdown. But the good news is that more people than ever before are signing up online and to matchmaking and introduction agencies to give them the best chance of finding the right person. So why not join them and look to the virtual world to meet new people. There are some great ways of getting to know someone virtually until you can meet in person.  

Use a Matchmaker Agency like RSVP Introductions

By working closely with our expert Matchmaking team, you can increase your chances of finding love
this Valentine’s Day. Using a matchmaker can help you to establish the values and characteristics that are important to you in a partner.  They are then able to use a mix of intuition and expertise to search through their database to present matches that best meet those criteria.  They can also challenge you to look outside your comfort zone. Our matchmakers have already got to know those members on their database – so the chances of the chemistry being there is much higher.

Another benefit of choosing to work with a Matchmaker is that it can give you a more personal and enjoyable dating journey that will leave you feeling confident, energised and safe. No more scrolling through online profiles, trying to work who is genuine, even before you think about their suitability.

At RSVP, we understand that although finding someone to spend time with on Valentine’s Day is the short-term goal, ultimately you are looking for a life partner. Our expert matchmakers work tirelessly to get to know you and what you are looking for so they can introduce you to the right person for you.

So why wait? Get in touch with our friendly team today and Valentine’s Day could be the first day of the rest of your new life.
