Valentine's Day - go-on, be brave
Posted by The RSVP Team onValentine's Day - a day that fills single people with dread. It feels like the cards, teddy bears and flowers have been in the shops since Christmas, rubbing it in your face that you are on your own and romance is a dim and distant memory, if a memory at all. Depressing huh?
Well no - why should couples have all the fun?
Think about it this way...How many mismatched couples (they didn't use RSVP!) have you seen actually looking bored in a restaurant on the big V Day? There's really no need to be sad about Valentine's Day - it's time to reclaim it for the singles and have some fun.
There is actually no better time to put your best foot forward and reach out to other singles. Other than the week after New Year's Day, Valentine's week is actually one of the busiest times on RSVP, with more members joining and more Kisses sent. In fact, we are expecting over 80,000 Kisses to be sent on the Sunday before Valentine's Day.
And unlike when you walk in a bar, you know that everyone on RSVP is actually single - so you can 'get your flirt on' in the knowledge that you are in like-minded company. You can also choose who you flirt with...unlike when your mates or your mum set you up on a dodgy blind date.
At RSVP, we get contacted every day by people who have met someone special using the site and want to share their story. In fact, 8% of Aussie's met their current or most recent partner online.
So, how do you get the most out of RSVP this Valentine's, and maybe even get a date in time for the day? The best advice is to be pro-active. The people who have the most success with online dating are a little bold. Don't just wait for other members to approach you. If you see someone you like, go-on, send them a Kiss (that includes you ladies). Sometimes you might be rejected, but what have you lost...fortune favours the brave and by reaching out to more members you are increasing your odds.
And everyone likes to receive a compliment, so you have probably helped make someone else's day. And who knows where that Kiss could lead if you take their fancy too...
