How to overcome the challenges of dating as a young professional

When is the right time for a young professional to try online dating?

How to overcome the challenges of dating as a young professional

As a young professional building your career, you are likely facing a unique set of dating challenges. During your college days you probably found it much easier to meet and date because you were surrounded by singles of the opposite sex with similar interests, lifestyles and ages. Now as a young professional the game has changed and it can be much harder to meet the right people. You are investing the vast majority of your time developing your career and, when you’re not at work, meeting someone for a nerve-wracking first date is not the first thing you want to do. You want to find someone who understands your ambitions and lifestyle but when and where is a big question mark. At Catch22 we understand where you’re coming from and have a few words of advice that may be helpful:

1) Enlist the help of friends

  • There’s no reason to be shy with your friends about the fact that you’re looking. They know you well and can be strategic in who they introduce you to. Friends of friends can be great sources for potentials dates because not only can your friend facilitate the introduction, he or she can also give you the inside scoop on what your date is really like.

2) Pursue your interests outside of work but be strategic

  • We know you’re busy but even if you can find an outside activity to participate in once or twice a month it’s worth it. Find something you enjoy but that will also allow you meet singles of the opposite setting in a relaxed setting. For example, join a local sports league, sign up to learn a new language or take photography lessons. Not only are you likely to meet some good potential dates, you’ll have fun in the process as well.

3) Be open to joining an online dating site

  • Joining an online dating site makes a lot of sense for busy professionals. Firstly, you get instant access to numerous eligible girls or guys. Second, matches tailored to your needs are delivered straight to your inbox on an ongoing basis without having to lift a finger. Third, online dating profiles can let you quickly and efficiently filter down to what you are looking for.
  • Catch22Dating is an ideal site for graduate students looking for other high-quality singles. At Catch22, you know that every match is educated, high-caliber and verified. Further, Catch22 allows you to customize your privacy settings including hiding your profile from classmates or specific people if you choose to do so.

When is the right time for a young professional to try online dating?

There are many different ways to meet potential dates and each has its pros and cons but, how do you know which way is best for you at a given time? When is the right time for a young professional to give online dating a try? At Catch22Dating, we see a few key times when trying online dating makes a lot of sense for young professionals to try:

1) You want to get access to a greater pool of potential dates

  • There are so many times in our lives when, for whatever reason, we just aren’t meeting a ton of new people who would make high-quality dates. We get immersed in other things with our limited time like hanging out with friends, spending time with family or advancing our careers. All of these things are wonderful but at the end of the day, we may not be meeting a steady flow of new, date-worthy singles. That’s where online dating can come in very handy – you get instant access to a broad pool of high-quality singles with matches tailored to specifically to you delivered to your inbox.

2) You’re interested in finding dates with specific traits

  • Oftentimes, when we meet people out at bars or through acquaintances, it can be hard to tell if that person meets specific criteria you had in mind. For example, it can be awkward to ask someone upfront, what are you looking for in a relationship or how religious are you or do you smoke or do you want to have kids? If you know upfront what you are looking for then online dating makes this process so much more efficient. Instead of having to piece together this information from 3 or 4 separate dates, you can take one look at someone’s profile and know right away. This aspect of online dating can save you significant amounts time, money and heartbreak.

3) You need to separate your career from your dating life

  • Most of us have been here, we meet a good number of interesting, educated and single potential dates. However, we are meeting these people through work, clients or potential customers. Dating these people can be very risky for your job and career. Some of these relationships will work out but many of them will end in break-ups that can leave both parties feeling miserable and awkward at work. If you are finding that a lot of your potential dates are from work-related sources we highly recommend online dating to expand and diversify your network of potential dates.
