In a ruthless age of dating, where potential suitors are mercilessly swiped by and matches routinely ghosted, Facebook is promoting a kind approach to speed-dating with its new app ‘Sparked.’
Getting into dating these days is easier than ever, thanks to a multitude of free apps such as Tinder, Bumble, and Hinge.
However, this level of convenience and boundless choice has brought with it a wave of unsavoury dating behaviours that can make the whole process daunting and emotionally taxing for the feint hearted.
As an office with a fair amount of collective experience in the modern dating game, it’s no exaggeration when we say it can feel cutthroat.
One wrong move, whether it be inactivity, coming on too keen, a bad joke, or even an incorrect use of grammar, and you may find yourself on the digital scrapheap. Tinder vets will tell you to just dust yourself down and get on with it.
For the idealistic folk who want the benefits of digital dating without the palpable risk of being ghosted though, Facebook may just have the relaxed alternative you’ve longed for.
