Bonus — when you are ready to go back on the dating apps, there will be a slew of fresh new talent waiting to entertain you!" - Giusy Castiglione, Founder & CEO of Dates Spotz"When you decide to delete your dating apps, be realistic and take it one week at a time.
You can barely keep your hands off each other — and the excitement of it all feels like falling in love. Generally, all men and women get married bright-eyed and open-hearted, believing that divorce happens to other people. Well, do people think you’re difficult to be around?So, figure out what "type" of person you imagine dating. If you love the outdoors, join a whitewater rafting club. Ask someone at the grocery story what they are buying and why they like it. Let the universe conspire in your favor." -Parikh"Although dating apps have become a major factor in how people meet nowadays, there are other ways to meet the love of your life.The best activities continue for a few weeks, giving you the opportunity to get to know new people slowly over time." -Parikh"Assess how you project yourself into the world. From there, you can move into the zone of making conversation easily throughout your day--at the doctor's office, the drugstore, and the gym. During app-less April my advice is to take up activities that improve some aspect of your life while allowing you to meet people — for example a sporting activity.Find time to spend with friends, brush up on your resume, go to the gym more frequently, start writing that blog or book that you’ve dreamed about and create your vision board for attracting that ideal person to your life for when you’re ready to reactivate your profile." - Julie Spira, Online Dating Expert and Digital Matchmaker, Founder of Cyber-Dating Expert Want more of Bustle's Sex and Relationships coverage?Check out our new podcast, I Want It That Way, which delves into the difficult and downright dirty parts of a relationship, and find more on our Soundcloud page.
