I've been here for a bout 4 months and I've been getting a rude awakening on how dating here is. It definately is different and it's definately more fast paced. With so much temptation and speed with each other, how does one REALLY get to know one another? Source: To many, online dating is still that last ditch effort to escape the land of singledom, and though the stigma surrounding answering that age-old “so, how did you meet,” question has somewhat subsided, some of these dating sites are not helping the cause.I started thinking about this when I was over on Jezebel and saw someone alerted them to the ad with the guy above running in Subways in New York City.Speyer spent more than a decade running the old-school matchmaking business Field’s Exclusive Service, which he sold off 10 years ago. There was never an algorithm or matchmaking software — only the trained eye of the Field family.There were no online profiles — only the matchmakers, who interviewed clients and reviewed physical profiles at the Field’s office.
Speyer, 48, of Yorktown Heights, often thinks about offering single New Yorkers another choice beyond Tinder and with what he considers his family’s tried-and-true matchmaking methods.
