Truth And Lies In Dating

There’s an old saying “Don’t believe everything you hear”, and nowhere does this apply more than in the dating world.  Here are some dating TRUTHS you can rely on:

  • Truth #1: Dating, and in particular POSITIVE DATING, is the BEST way to find a compatible relationship partner.
  • Lie #1: Dating is a pure numbers game; the more dates you go on the better your chances of finding someone special (in fact, quality of dates is as or more important than quantity of dates).
  • Truth #2: Physical chemistry is not just about someones look; it also includes personality, sense of humour, attitude, and other factors.
  • Lie #2: Physical chemistry can never grow stronger over time, only weaker (in fact, chemistry can grow once you get to know someone and find areas of compatibility).
  • Truth #3: A first date is NOT the best time to decide on whether someone is a great match for you; a second or third date with someone, when both of you are more relaxed and open, is a better time to determine if you have true compatibility.
  • Lie #3: If you don’t feel an immediate and powerful ‘spark’ within the first few minutes of a first date, you should rule that person out as a potential match for you.

Top 5 Ways To Find Vancouver Summer Lovin!

Executive Search Dating, the Vancouver-based Matchmaker for busy professionals, wants to help Vancouver singles meet their special someone this summer.

“Summer is actually a great time to meet someone new in Vancouver”, says Paddi Rice, President and Founder of Executive Search Dating. “With the nice weather finally here there are lots of ‘summer-centric’ romantic activities to do in the city.  Add the fact that people are generally more positive and approachable in the summer, and you have a virtual ‘perfect dating storm’ for Vancouver singles!”

Here are Executive Search Dating’s “Top 5 Ways To Find Vancouver Summer Lovin”:

1.      More patio, less pressure: an afternoon drinks date on a summer patio is a Vancouver dating classic! Move your date outdoors and you’ll find a more casual setting… the perfect vibe for a first or second date.

2.      Ignite your dating life: the summer barbeque season is a sure-fire winner for connecting with new people.  Whether you are hosting or just attending, there will never be a more relaxed and friendly place to meet someone new in Vancouver.

3.      Music and warm summer nights: summer is THE outdoor music season, with plenty of outdoor festivals and concerts to choose from. A perfect place to meet like-minded music lovers, or to take someone special on a second or third date.  It’s like taking your date and a favourite artist for a romantic evening walk in the park.

4.      The summer ‘picnic date’: be creative this summer; pack a picnic basket, blanket and your date and hit Jericho or Sunset beach for a world renowned Vancouver sunset.

5.      The world is your ocean: who says dates have to be land-based?  Hire some Kayaks and spend a summer afternoon touring English Bay… cap it off with an ‘after-paddle’ drink on Granville Island.
