Global Love Report – April 12, 2023
English summary by Pamela Stephanie
Young French singles are choosing matchmaking agencies to find a partner. And why is that?
According to the Founder of Elite Connexion agency, Guerda de Haan, it’s because they feel that agencies are more private and more secure. Furthermore, agencies provide them with support, making them feel more protected. De Haan also noted that 50% of her clients are young singles around their late 20s and early 30s.
One of her success stories, a 26-year-old woman who is about to marry, said that she opted to use an agency because she felt they were more precise. And she was sure that she would be able to find someone that met her expectations.
But that may not be all. According to author and journalist Flore Cherry—an expert on sexuality—young French singles are craving commitment. And there are two reasons for this: they’ve seen their parents quickly go through divorce and wish to see commitment again.
And then there’s also the post-lockdown aspect. During lockdowns, they found themselves alone in their home, and their mental health suffered.
So young French singles are choosing matchmaking agencies because they want something more natural. Not something digital. An agency brings back that element of reality in dating.
Additionally, dating apps can be frustrating. For women, there are many choices. However, men tend to have difficulty finding a first date.
