We’re all a bit done aren’t we really.
Done, fed up, had enough, however you want to word it, we’re all feeling the same way – about online dating that is. Sure, at it’s peak we were loving every minute but now, I think it’s safe to assume that we all feel a bit, well, bored of it all. It’s more of a hard slog than an exciting process these days.
The constantly feeling disposable to the other person behind the screen, the continual worry that the person you’re talking to isn’t all they might seem to be, the seemingly inevitable disappointment when you arrange to meet up only for the potentially significant other to cancel last minute. We’re over it. SO over it.
We want to strip things down and get right back to basics when it comes to dating – the ol’ fashioned way. It’s crazy that a lot of people in 2018 find the idea of meeting someone whilst out and about a bit odd. This is how it SHOULD be done! No wondering what the person will be like because, well, they’re stood right in front of you and after five minutes if you decide, nah he’s not for me, no worries – there’s been no emotional build-up or attachment so nobody’s left disappointed and effectively, everyone’s a winner!
So, where might one meet said potential S/O out and about?
Erm, what? Yeah, I know what you’re thinking. What’s honeypot? Essentially, Honeypot acts as a magnet attracting singles to the same place. honeypot just puts you in the right place, at the right time with way more singles and the best bit? Nobody knows you’re there because of honeypot…
THIS IS NOT SPEED DATING. THIS IS NOT AN EVENT.
Honeypot’s not about making matches, it’s about creating opportunities.
We’ve become a world obsessed with technology so the thought of approaching someone in real life these days can seem quite daunting, however if you’re quietly confident that you’re surrounded by singles with the same intentions – you’re much more at ease, which is another great perk.
Basically, you can see Insta stories of where the honeypots will form near you – think vibrant pubs, rooftop hang outs and buzzy bars. As you arrive, there’s no need to display a big name tag or check in or any of that rigmarole, just turn up, and you’ll find yourself surrounded with other people who have arrived with the same intentions.
The plan? Go to the honeypot, grab a drink with your mates and enjoy yourself. Remember, people don’t know you’re there because of honeypot, so best flirting foot forward!
In my opinion, this is what we’ve been waiting for. No more swiping, just right back to traditional ways of meeting people with the same intentions. It’s high time we remember how to flirt and interact with people we like. We’ve become so sucked into forming romantic attachments over our phones that a lot of us seem to have forgotten what it’s like to forge a meaningful connection with someone in person. If anything, honeypot’ll give you a good ol’ self-esteem boost in addition to a potential date. Can’t grumble at that eh?
To the people of London, make the most of it. There are thousands of amazing venues in the capital that’ll fast become honeypots and in the city that never stops, perhaps it’s time to start putting yourself out there in person again.
Nearly gone are the days of digital dating, welcome back to the age of reality!
