There are ‘plenty of fish in the sea’, ‘your prince is on his way’… how many times have you heard this?!
But where exactly can you meet Prince Charming? Where is he hiding?
Most single ladies have kissed far too many frogs only to find out that they remain frogs and do not, despite their best efforts, turn into handsome princes.
We’ve put together a list of five of the top places you could find your happily-ever-after. Let us know if it works out!
If you have any places or ideas to add to this list, please feel free to comment below – we would love to help our All4Women ladies find love!
1. Introductions via friends and family
According to the latest results from the RSVP Date of the Nation Report 2014, being introduced to a potential partner by friends and family is one of the most effective and most popular ways of finding ‘the one’.
Because friends and family know you best, they are more likely to match you up with someone that you really connect with. Meeting your Prince Charming is more likely to happen in a group of friends with mutual interests than at a club where the diversity and interests of the patrons is more wide-ranging.
Remember this scene from Bridget Jones where her mother introduces her to Mark Darcy? *Cringe* But at least it all turned out well in the end!
2. Internet dating
Online dating websites recently surpassed interest-based clubs and ‘work’ to become the second-most popular way for couples over 30 to meet.
RSVP Date of the Nation Report 2014, 17% of those who made use of online dating ended up getting married or are in stable, long-term relationships.
