Dating creatives london
They have the best roasted carrots, and my favorite tequila jalapeño drink. Before the date, Tim had a messenger deliver a cute note: “Me You x 40. He told me that when his mother got pregnant, his father made her choose between keeping the child or staying with him.
We had our first date at The Fat Radish in the Lower East Side. However, I know that when an opportunity scares me, I must go for it. No matter what the outcome, it will certainly be an interesting experience. There is always one girl he’s really excited about, a second girl he’s been seeing for a few weeks and is starting to get bored with, and a third girl he’s been seeing a month or two and is getting ready to call quits.
This is something we’ve never discussed, although we have been flirtatious with each other in the past. Chemicals like dopamine and norepinephrine are released when in love. When I have a crazy day at work, I often forget to check my cell phone. Anyway, we went to the Off-Broadway play, Did anything interesting happen? Jessie told me some very personal stuff that’s happened in her life. Apparently she doesn’t check her texts much, which I somehow did not know. The intimate talk and the crisp spring air made our walk home feel a bit romantic. Well I certainly won’t text her if I need to get a hold of her. I think Jessie caught me looking at the Knicks score on my phone during the play.
After some awkward glances, we both admitted that we do find each other attractive. The chemicals increases energy, increases focus, and helps make us feel fucking awesome all the time. Actually, sometimes I don’t bring it to the studio at all. I guess I should look into an app that downloads texts to the computer. I’m happy she did, and that she trusted me enough to tell me.
We have a great network of mentors too, which has been a huge help.
Our target audience is 25-34 year olds who are single in London, and so far so good.
So I sat down and came up with three ideas for businesses, a dating app, a mobile game and an event format. Learning how to start-up a business, get investment, resolve supplier issues, manage design and development complications, learning and understanding marketing and social media to a degree I never thought I would. My co-founder and I make a great team who can research and understand most issues we have come up against.
I then pitched them to a few of my friends whose opinion I trusted and they all agreed – the dating app was best, the other two were rubbish! I follow my mantra of “Be yourself, respect others and follow your dreams.” Where needed, we have liaised with several experts to get additional advice where reading was insufficient.
Our USP is that we give control back to our users allowing them to decide what is important to them in a match.
We discussed Tim’s relationship patterns, and how he’s in a constant cycle between three women.
He breaks off relationships before they get too serious to avoid the risk of abandonment.
Whether our users are looking for a date or a mate, we offer them a unique way to match with someone on their wavelength.
We put people in control of their matching process and give them a creative way to express themselves and get better quality matches in a quick and fun way. I was sick and tired of working in legal and compliance (I was a lawyer and data protection officer) and wanted to start my own business, to do something more fun and creative.
I wonder if that is part of the reason I am always trying to find the right person and why I feel like such failure when a relationship doesn’t work out. Jessie is currently in therapy, so it’s all good with her too.
