Group Dating: Is This The New Way To Find Love?
The dating game can be nerve-wracking. How many times have you gone to meet a new bloke and wished you could bring a pal along for moral support? Well now you can. Thanks to new 'social clubs' which match up two groups of three friends online and bring them together away from the computer screen for a night out on the town.
What?There are two new ‘clubs’ on the scene. Smeeters – started in Paris and launched in London in October – and Grouper, already running in 25 cities in North America and coming to the capital this month.
Both sell themselves as an innovative way of expanding your social circle (and maybe finding love) without the pressure of one-on-one get-togethers or the hassle of online dating. As Kristen Badal, director of international operations at Grouper, puts it: ‘We use online technology to bring our members offline and take conversations to where we think they belong – face to face in the real world.’
How does it work?You sign up for free via Facebook, fill in a short application form and invite two friends to join. The clubs then use your group’s details to hand-match parties by age, interests, tastes, jobs and by their photos. Once everyone’s paid the £15 charge, they’ll organise your evening for you (the venue, any activities and covering the first round of drinks). Then they’ll give you the need-to-know details and get you together.
1. It takes away the awkwardness of conventional dating. With six of you chatting there’s no chance of the conversation drying up.
2. It’s hassle-free. Unlike most online dating sites or meet-up groups, you don’t have to spend hours creating a profile, trawling through other people’s and weeding out weirdos. The clubs claim they do that for you (most applicants tend to be professional types in their 20s and 30s).
