The two of them don’t know each other, maybe they have never even seen a picture of one another, and now they are on a date – a blind date that is.
But one thing they have in common: They are looking for a partner. However, there are several nuances of dating. Blind date means that the two are completely unknown. They may have been matched by a computer instead of a person. The first personal encounter with a chat partner from the internet is also a blind date. But the conditions are different, because you have already narrowed down the choices.
After all, people who use the internet for dating usually go beyond chatting with one person only.
Blind dates are not for people who have a clear mental picture of a partner in mind, such as same interests in meditation, go for a walkabout or exotic animals. Anyone who embarks on the journey of a blind date must be open for the unknown and unexpected, because that is part of the fun. Also knowing that the other person is just as much looking for the perfect match as you are.
Everyone who has ever scanned possible date candidates on the internet hopes for a higher chance to find the right person as opposed to a blind date with a complete stranger.
