This is a real problem and concern. A common complaint we hear all the time at Executive Match and why so many singles turn to us for help is that the dates they meet look nothing like their photos. We all know the scenario. You have gone on to RSVP or Tinder and done the search. Found someone you like and connected with them.
The only problem is that the photos look nothing like the person sitting in front of them on the first date. They are there right in front of you and you can’t make the connection. There is a similarity, but they seem to have put n about 20 kg and lost a lot of hair. Plus where did all those wrinkles come from? What a disappointment!
This happens all the time and there is a large percentage of people out there who are putting up photos of themselves that are well over 5 years old. This is unfair and not on and wastes peoples time.
So how does a dating agency like ours at Executive Match fit in? Well, firstly we meet everyone before they go one our database so we can accurately see their age. We also will be provided with current photos so they cannot slip in the odd photo when they were years younger. In fact with us, it’s what you see is what you get.
When we send out a profile for you to view, you can rest easy that this photo is current so there’s no chance of ever being disappointed when you first see them. This is the beauty of dealing with a dating agency. You avoid all the deceipt and photo shopped images prior to meeting the person.
Lets say for example you’re a 45 year old man looking to meet a lady in her late thirties or early forties the last thing you want to meet (unless this is your preference) is a load in her early fifties. This is what it’s like in the dating world where all photos and selfies are unregulated. Of course people are going to put up their best photos of themselves which were taken years ago. You want to put your best foot forward and present yourself in the best light and with the aging process this can be an issue.
Our job as a dating agency is to cut through the clutter and match you with people who don’t lie about their age and who have photos that are current.
So, if you want to meet someone who actually looks like their photo get in touch with Robyn at Executive Match.
This is common. RSVP and Tinder is great if your in your 20’s but you can forget about meeting a long term partner if your in your 30’s, 40’s and 50’s. Now, before you start saying that your best friend met their partner on RSVP and you have heard so many success stories, let me tell you that based on the number of people using this site, these are just a small fraction. Sure there are people that have met and fell in love using these sites but it is such an exception.
RSVP & Tinder have so much traffic and so many people using it that it’s essentially a number game. People are on there dating dozens if not hundreds of people. It can become and addiction for some people who are constantly on the look out for the next best person. Simply put, these larger dating websites have had their run, have had their time in the sun and are now basically sites for hooking up for a quick encounter.
I thought I would list the issues with using dating sites like RSVP and Tinder for people who are genuinely looking for a real relationship.
# 1. Because it’s so competitive in this space and everyone is trying to out do the next person, a lot of people will put photos of themselves up there that are not relevant. Yes we all want to look younger and beautiful but to put a picture of yourself that’s a few years old on there gives people the wrong impression. We hear so many stories of people that have gone on an RSVP date only to be absolutely horrified when they meet the person in real life. They look so much older than their picture. This is really common and it happens all the time. Don’t for 1 minute think that I am exaggerating here as this is done by probably 50% of the people on RSVP or Tinder. It’s a rort and you only end up wasting time and being aggravated that the person you thought you were meeting turns out to be their 10 year older brother or sister. It’s a huge disappointment.
# 2. RSVP and Tinder are now really only for game players. People will randomly accept kisses or likes from anyone and not actually do anything about it. For guys this is a real issue especially on RSVP when they will send out 10 kisses and get say 8 positive replies to these. They will then spend the money on stamps to engage with these women who end up not getting back or replying. A real waste of money. It’s such a hit and miss when you go down this path.
# 3. For girls, watch out. These sites are really not about looking for love but are instead about looking for a good time. Guys are mostly on these sites for 1 thing and 1 thing only.. If you don’t believe this then be warned. Try a few dates out and you will see what we mean. If you are serious about finding a real relationship and falling in love then these are the wrong dating platforms for you.
So what’s the answer for single, eligible professional people in Sydney and Melbourne who want to find a real partner?
