Nearly everyone feels nervous when going on a first date. Your anxiety might be mild or massive. A few - or many - butterflies are bound to appear when you’ll be spending time with someone you don’t know well (if at all). So, we must keep in mind that dating is a process...Read More

Do looks matter? Of course they do. As humans, we're intrinsically inclined to gravitate towards a personality after that physical attraction is established. Speaking to that, I think physical attraction is comprised of so many different variables...Read More

Lately, the team has been challenged with the concept of "reviews." It's a bit unnatural for us to occupy the "review" space, as one of Tawkify's main cornerstones is client privacy. We don't want our client's to compromise their privacy to share about their experiences. However, we recognize that reviews are an integral component in the decision-making process as people consider working with us...Read More
There is a profound authenticity to meeting someone as you are - as they are - for the first time - especially when you least expect it. In that moment you are discovering another person, figuring out in realtime who they are and - if you're lucky - sensing that mysterious alchemy of burgeoning interest, maybe attraction...Read More

When going out into the world (or, more often, the internet) to seek love and companionship, most of us decide to date someone based on how they make us feel, or based on attributes we seek in someone else. Most of us don’t think about the relationship we want. We think about the person we want, and, once we find them, assume a lasting relationship will organically take shape from there...Read More

Does it shock you to learn that an estimated 85% of online dating profiles are inaccurate? If you’ve been dating online, probably not. If you haven’t, it probably makes you wonder – yet again – why so many people trust their love lives to the impersonal, unpredictable algorithms of cyberspace social. If it’s hard to “judge a person by a profile” in the first place, and most people are lying in the profiles or posting 10-year old photos on top of that, then… what’s the point, right?
I don’t know of a single person (pun intended) on a dating site who hasn’t experienced that appallingly awkward moment when they approach their intended date-in-the-flesh for the first time, and realize...Read More

Watch Tom try to find a date... offline.
Life is a social game, yet today, personal contact is shared most commonly through virtual means. The screen of a phone, tablet or computer are the secretaries of our personal lives. Directed by Samuel Abrahams, the short documentary “Offline Dating” is a refreshing look at relationships from the outside of the virtual world, told through the story of one brave soul trying to find a date the old-fashioned way...Read More
I have a friend who dates online… a lot. You could say she’s popular. She gets out again and again because she’s fabulous--which is obvious, even through a screen. Yet she arrives each time preloaded with every personal detail about her date--their hometown, full legal name, and family history--often even their annual income and whether or not they rent or own. IT IS RIDICULOUS. The internet is a fantastic tool for writing a thesis, but should it be used to compose a 15-page, pre-introduction memoir on a potential romantic interest’s life story?...Read More
