As an online dating consultant and matchmaker, I’m a strong believer in the power of these referral networks.After going on over 150 dates, trying out over 100 dating websites, and advising hundreds of individuals at all levels of dating experience, one thing consistently stands out to me: .Despite the romantic promise of most dating sites, the likelihood of discovering that your internet date is truly compatible with you across all major dimensions of compatibility is quite low.According to PEW research, as of last year, only 11% of US adults have used online dating sites, and of those, only 23% have actually entered into a relationship with someone they met there.Using dating sites to find love is inefficient and prone to failure.We typically set the stakes too high, and centuries worth of societal tropes and expectations can cripple the authenticity of our interactions.
She quickly connected us via Facebook, where her friend and I immediately hit it off and subsequently spent the whole weekend together.
Jessica later introduced me to yet another awesome friend in San Francisco, and once again, her friend and I ended up having amazing chemistry.
Jessica and I met up as friends, without any overt attempts at wooing, courting, or sleeping with one another. She came to understand my background story and my relationship goals and preferences ( talk about these things all the time), and I learned about hers.
Using these insights, we both began introducing each other to awesome people within our respective friend groups, and have been doing so for years.
The friendship-first approach centers around sharing fun and memorable experiences with the people we meet, and seeking to learn their stories and their preferences, free of any overtly sexual or romantic expectations.
