Think about it. How many times have we met someone we thought we’d click with, only to find there was no chemistry in-person? One big problem with the transition from online to offline is that we don’t really know what’s true about someone until we meet them. A recent survey in Psychology Today confirms that 53% of people lie on their dating profile – that’s the equivalent to flipping a coin – not very good odds!
Living vs Virtual Profile
When you first create your Secret RSVP event profile, you may be expecting to enter things like your ethnicity, religion, political views, height, etc like you would for most online dating apps and sites. But we don’t ask for all that. We only show a few details like your picture, first name, age and a brief bio to give others just enough information for curiosity to grow. We let others discover the rest about you through seeing you across the room and interacting with you.
Another big difference is that your profile is only shown to others during the event – not at any other time. It’s what we call the “living profile” since it only exists when you are “live” and present – a living, breathing person sitting right across from others.
With a “living profile”, no one can hide. What you see is what you get. It’s real and genuine.
Opportunities for Discovery
Your living profile is kept as simple as possible because our style of events are meant to present opportunities for discovery. We desire to fill the void left by an over-saturated technological world with constant access to information that leaves very little room for any form of mystery.
In real life, when you meet someone interesting say at the grocery store, your place of worship, or work, you likely have no idea about their true ethnicity, religion, political views, or whether they drink or smoke. Yet, for some reason, you may have been drawn to them and found them interesting. And you normally wouldn’t write someone off so quickly having seen them in real life compared to an online profile where its all to common to make snap judgments and pass on someone with little information.
And in real life, you actually take the time to discover a person for who they really are through real-life interactions. This is what we believe, sadly, is becoming a thing of the past. Our events are designed to mimic what actually happens in real life and use technology to help us discover chemistry with others in-person.
Because everyone deserves a chance
Our mission is to bring back the best of what old-school meeting used to be. Where everyone has a chance to be known for whom they really are and not just another profile on some dating app to be swiped on like an object.
We want to bring back the fun and mystery of discovering people again – real people you can experience.
It’s about getting back to the basics and meeting people in real life but in a whole new old-school dating way.
