Online dating nz singles
Everyone likes the outdoors, laughing, travelling, a glass of wine with their friends.They're all looking for someone kind, down-to-earth, intelligent, with a good sense of humour.
Online dating technology is evolving, fuelled by sexed-up 20-somethings furiously swiping left."I think it's harmless, and it's safe, and for people in my age bracket, over 50, I think it's worthwhile." Joanna (not her real name) returned to New Zealand from a stint in London 10 years ago to find not a dating pool, but a dating puddle."There, it seemed you'd meet a lot more eligible people in your age group.Joanna would recommend the app, but cautions: "I would say keep your expectations kind of low."What's missing, she believes, is the chemistry that takes place when you meet someone sans screens."When you meet somebody in person, it's what makes you want to see that person again."She's being the face of it for all these other people who are too scared to say, 'Yeah, I am 60, 65, and I can still meet someone'." Would she set up a profile for Jan on Tinder?"I don't really like the thought of my mum on Tinder," says Hannah.Men are invited to fill out a form, and Jan and Hannah sort through the applicants together, contacting whoever Jan is interested in.In the first week, Jan received 50 applicants from all over New Zealand, as well as Australia and the UK.In Auckland I felt like there wasn't a lot of choice," she says. She mainly used Find Someone, and had some serious relationships, including one man with whom she had a child.But the novelty wore off, and she began to feel like she wasn't going to find The One on there.
