As dating experts, we know that there’s always going to be an element of expectation ahead of a first date. Could this person be ‘the one’? Will you have any chemistry? And often, therein lies the problem.

The concept of romantic chemistry is a really emotive one, particularly if you’ve registered with a professional matchmaking service after enduring a lot of unsuccessful first dates. It’s easy to enter into a meeting hoping that the stars are aligned perfectly, and that you’re companion will tick every box.

The reality is, couples on an arranged date aren’t likely to fall hopelessly in love as soon as they clock eyes on each other. Life just isn’t like that. While it’s important to be realistic, there’s plenty to be optimistic about. A physical attraction may well happen. Plus, the Bowes-Lyon Partnership has a team of dedicated dating experts, so we’re confident that we’ll find you a likeminded person.

Taking all that into consideration, it seems that in order to give yourself the best chance of finding your soul mate or a treasured companion, you’ll need to have a relaxed mind and balanced expectations.

Don’t forget that the notion of a romantic first date is going anywhere. Just don’t put too much emphasis on feeling a sudden surge of passion, an initial click, firework or a dollop of va-va-voom. Don’t wait for a magic spark to find you – instead, learn about your date, reveal who you are and give love a chance to develop.

It’s a tricky idea to convey. At the Bowes-Lyon Partnership, we find partners for elite, accomplished professionals. These are professionals who have super-high expectations, and rightly so. Our dating experts excel at pairing people who attract each other, captivate each other, plus inspire each other. We have an extensive range of members who will match your values, lifestyle and goals. Put simply, we’re confident that we’ll find you your dream man or woman.

Our personal approach to dating works. By combining experience, psychology and good old-fashioned instinct, our dating experts have enjoyed a lot of success (we’ve got the weddings and the babies to prove it!). So we think that our psychological insights are key. So many people approach dating and joining a dating agency in the wrong frame of mind. But we’re here to help you every step of the way. Why not get in touch today so that we can start getting to know you?
