For busy professional singles, it can be tough to make time for dating in between meetings, conference calls and business trips. It’s difficult enough to squeeze in time to relax and unwind from a busy workweek – making time to meet people outside of the usual group of friends and colleagues can seem like an exhausting challenge. So it’s comforting to know that there’s a way to meet other like-minded singles without even leaving your desk.
eHarmony is different from other online dating sites - we take the time to get to know you, so we can match you with other singles who share similar beliefs and priorities in life. For professional singles, this means the things you’re looking for in a prospective partner – whether it’s intelligence, education, or ambition. How do we do it? Our patented Compatibility Matching System™. It’s proven to be incredibly effective in matching compatible people and allowing them to develop long-lasting, harmonious relationships. The free personality profile, which is created once you take the questionnaire, will allow you and your matches to get a unique insight into your character, revealing the key dimensions of compatibility.
Once you’ve connected with a few matches on eHarmony, you may want to make plans to meet in person. Here are some ideas for ways to get to know someone while balancing a busy work life:
· Take your work schedule into account: If you know it’s unlikely you’ll be out of work in time to make a 6pm drink, schedule a date you know you’ll be able to keep, like a lunch or an early morning coffee.
· Put your Blackberry away: Resist the urge to keep up with what’s going on at work by checking your phone every few minutes. Turn your phone off for an hour and keep it at the bottom of your bag. That way you won’t be tempted to check your email, allowing you to turn all your attention to your date.
· Keep it simple: Don’t put too much pressure on your first date. Allow yourselves the opportunity to really get to know one another without trying too hard.
· Be interested, not interesting: Listen to your date without interrupting. Ask polite questions and try not to bring the conversation back to yourself. Give your date the opportunity to speak about their interests and ideas.
Whether you’re running a company or just running around, eHarmony allows you to meet someone who shares your passion and drive. You don’t have to be content letting your personal life take a backseat to your professional one: it’s now easy to find success in love and dating in the same way you’ve found it at work.
