Mingle2day Is Adding Personality Back into Online Dating (Sponsored Post)

Swipe culture is threatening to ruin dating, romance and companionship.  In 2015, Vanity Fair claimed Tinder had sounded the death knell for love, deeming its arrival as “the dawn of the dating apocalypse”.  Locality-based dating apps like Tinder and Grindr are no different than social media apps like Instagram.  Users approach them with the same mindset, aimlessly scrolling and rarely engaging.  When you date this way, you end up just another profile picture or selfie.  And worse yet, you barely get enough space to share anything substantial about yourself.  These apps might be what’s popular but they’re not doing anything positive for love.  Mingle2day is set to reverse course on the role the web plays in our love lives.

Mingle2day is the fastest growing online dating site in the world.  It’s a free site with active members in almost every English-speaking country.  82% of couples who’ve met through Mingle2day have been together for 5 years or longer.  So, there’s an online dating site that actually works? Absolutely!

The site uses its own specially formulated matchmaking technology to pair you with prospective partners who match your criteria.  Yes, the biggest draw to the site is its focus on locals.  But not in a creepy GPS-based sort of way.  You can connect with people from your area and spend more time getting to know them than what a single swipe provides.

Mingle2day prides itself on inclusiveness.  Race, gender, religion, age—none of these are prohibitive factors in your search for true love.

Though it’s free to join, monthly membership fees can unlock a world of possibility.  As a Gold member, you have unlimited access to the site and can message as many people as you see fit.  You can even become a VIP member, which improves your profile’s visibility on other members’ homepages as well as in their search results. 

You can communicate with other members through a multitude of options.  For those who are shy, you can flirt, which is like a Facebook poke or like winking at someone from across the room.  You can also send messages and host private chats.  And of course, your digital safety is always front of mind.  You have the ability to block any members who you wish to cease contact with.  But it’s likely that won’t be a problem.

The biggest advantage of Mingle2day over dating apps is its breadth of information about your potential partners.  When online dating first started, users were focused on telling a story and sharing enough information about their lives to entice other users.  They wanted to give a complete picture of who they were.  But dating apps have removed this level of detail.  The dating population has been reduced to selfies and 3 lines of text.  Mingle2day offers a return to the days of conversations, complete profiles and a focus on compatibility.  If you’re looking for a chance to change your dating odds, delete the apps and head to Mingle2day.com.
