Work and how it impacts dating

Recently data has surfaced that being single at work can get you 'singled out'. IE married co-workers think it's well within reason to expect single co-workers to work longer hours, work overtime, and, indeed cover for them with little to no notice.

A recent study conducted by an associate professor at the University of Texas at Arlington, interviewed a group of 59 singles from various work sectors, ages 22-70. Singles of all ages felt they were expected to work more hours than their coworkers who were married with kids. Singles felt their personal time was not respected and that work interfered with finding time to date. It explains the popularity of online dating with regard to its quickness and efficiency. However, online dating isn't for everyone. The choatic nature, the ease with which it is to be dishonest, and the lack of privacy are all turn- offs for many single professionals.

A matchmaking event can save you time and money. All in all it can take a mere two hours of your time to make sure the matchmakers know your criteria and another two hours to come to the event and meet, individually, with matches specifically recruited and screened for you. Ease of access is the reality of 2020 and beyond. However, that doesn't mean you have to lose out on quality. Let Houston Matchmakers help you streamline your dating life, and the get the most of the time you have.
