Personal Introductions v online dating – in the UK
Many of our members get in touch with us having exhausted all the available online dating options. In some cases they have been subjected to criminal activity affecting on-line dating sites. Money is extracted from members by impostors or gangs posing as suitable suitors, claiming affection, even love for their victims. In many cases they tell us they wish we had been their first port of call. So here we look at Personal Introductions v online dating in the UK.
No, we cannot compete with the online dating sites on price. But that simply reflects the additional levels of security, expertise and one-to-one guidance that we offer. Hopefully you’ll get a clearer idea of how that benefits you in the points that follow…
Security and vetting
At Perfect Partners we personally interview and ID check potential partners before we introduce you to them. With online dating you’re largely reliant on other people’s honesty, which means that the system is susceptible to manipulation by fraudsters and predators.
Picking your dates on-line is like picking a name out of a hat. You are left to your own devices and instinct to make the right choice. At Perfect Partners we provide a personal matchmaking service. We are able to draw upon our extensive experience to match you with people who are truly compatible. Online dating sites lead you down a route of judging people at a superficial level. You won’t need us to tell you that many sites have their fair share of fraud. Watch BBC’s Panorama Programme “Tainted Love” and how see how easy it is to get involved with fake members. Members sign up with ridiculously old photographs and create fictional personal profiles edited to the point where they have little resemblance to reality; it’s difficult to know who you’re really approaching.
Our matchmaking process keeps you at arm’s length from potential introductions until we’re satisfied that they are compatible with you. The relentless back-and-forth of messages on dating sites creates a faux intimacy with potential partners. This creates unhealthy and unrealistic expectations before you’ve even had a first date. Experience v. algorithms. There is still no algorithm that can accurately predict whether or not a relationship will work. So any method of finding a partner based on an algorithm is essentially a shot in the dark. The superficial factors we’ve already mentioned are the only guidance which an algorithm can offer. Spoiled for Choice research suggests that we make bad buying decisions in supermarkets. Bamboozled by choice and offers, we end up making the wrong purchases. The same is true of online dating sites. With scores of profiles to trawl through, online dating websites can also lead you towards bad decisions. We’re glad to help you make better decisions
