Dating for professionals: are dating apps missing the mark?

With many people now treating dating apps as “more of a game” than a legitimate tool to help find a relationship, more responsibility falls on the shoulders of professional dating options, specifically dating websites for professionals and online dating for professionals as a whole.

And while dating apps have seen their fair share of success with the younger generation, a different story steals the limelight for the older crowd.

People are on dating apps for the different reasons

Over half of adults believe dating apps and similar services carry a negative stigma and have saturated the dating market, which is echoed across age groups and gender. This is backed by 55% of men and 59% of women both.

Roughly 56% of adults view dating apps and services as either somewhat or very negative; and this stigma persists across age groups and gender. For example, 59% of women and 55% of men share similarly negative opinions regarding dating sites and apps.

The main issue with dating apps is that their demographic is generally very broad, meaning not everyone on these apps are here for the same reasons. Some may be looking for short-term relationships, others long-term and some simply see it as a game to boost their own ego.

In contrast, the best dating sites for working professionals take into account very personal information and use this to matchmake with potential partners that share the same values and beliefs.

The difference between dating apps and professional dating services

The biggest difference between dating apps and dating sites for professionals is the level of detail and the focus placed on finding you the perfect partner. For example, at Maclynn we utilise our wide network of exceptional partners and the information you provide to pair you with someone who shares the same values and beliefs.

This generally means providing more information than you would on a standard dating app such as Tinder or Bumble, but with more information matchmakers are able to better identify potential matches.

As a general rule, the more detailed and specific you are regarding your lifestyle preferences and ambitions for the future, the more compatible your match will be.

Maclynn offers elite dating for professionals in the UK

Dating for busy professionals can become very difficult, mainly due to lack of time or not knowing the best ways to meet new people. Dating sites for working professionals are a fantastic way for singletons to find eligible partners that best suit their preferences and lifestyle.
