“No point in hurrying, you’ve got to start off on the right foot...”

Everyone knows the famous fable by la Fontaine where an over-confident hare is beaten by miles by a more thoughtful tortoise... Yes, wanting to go too fast is often the same thing as “speed”!  Speed as in “speed dating”…  This very “fashionable” style of encounter, in a special location, which allows singles to get to know each other in 7 minutes flat! Seven minutes of intensive talking and flirting, before changing table and changing partners, in the hope that some kind of spark will glow during this unforgiving face to face encounter. It either works or it doesn’t, like arm wrestling, both parties giving all their energy and seductiveness to carry off the big prize.... But unfortunately there is little chance of success, especially if everything turns on someone’s physique, their smile or their attitude in order to hit the mark...

Above all, make sure you are relaxed

But you will ask what connection speed dating has with Singleactive. There are basically two points in common. Both organise and encourage contact between singles and both emphasise a real encounter between the partners. But the similarities stop there.  You must above all waste no time with speed dating; with Singleactive, you are free from stress and competitiveness, and you can relax. Singleactive certainly offers its members a fine selection of leisure activities which are also an opportunity for diverse encounters; to be experienced simply as shared activities between friends or something conducive to love. Everyone choses the Singeleactive events themselves, which are based around group activities in a social ambiance suitable for letting each participant’s personality shine out. Humour, gentleness helpfulness, individual skills and varied interests; character traits are more readily visible in a fraternal and party-like atmosphere, with no special requirements except the pleasure of sharing.

Let’s live the present moment to the full

It really is interesting to participate in Singleactive events without any pressure, when you can let things take their course…, perhaps with a nice surprise coming at the end. Singleactive members who discover an affinity with someone will have all the time in the world to use the technology on the platform to pursue the relationship. Meanwhile take your time and enjoy the living moment with no nasty stress: this is a well-known recipe for success. And may we dare add that those who prefer advancing at a tortoise’s pace may find what they want before the hares who like careering around at the speed of light...

Frog and Prince Charming

"Sometimes you have to kiss a lot of frogs before you find Prince Charming..." explained a woman on a forum, referring to her personal experience on a traditional dating website. What then, is the relevance of this slightly cynical remark, particularly given the services offered by the new Singleactive website?

In their "bubble"

Let's be realistic, this person's comment reflects the experiences of many members of traditional dating websites in more than one way, and for a good reason: getting to know a partner first takes place in a reality which is essentially virtual. Comfortably seated in front of their computer screen, hidden by an evocative user name, fans of traditional dating websites are often trapped in a "bubble", fuelled by the magic and mystery of messaging. In this mode of communication which is specific to the Internet, people talk among strangers, they do not often reveal their identity, they say things that make them sound good and enter into a form of privacy, or even intimacy, which is rarely equalled in a real encounter. People even end up falling in love or writing "I love you" to someone they have never actually met in real life (!), as testified by internet users who are surprised to have fallen for this kind of enchantment. So we can easily guess that there are many bad surprises, disappointments and disillusionments when virtual partners end up actually meeting, often seeing their dreams and hopes coming up against a reality which is much more down-to-earth...

Real life

We have already seen that Singleactive does not primarily intend to promote this type of romantic encounter which are too often idealised. The platform is open to everyone, for the purpose of meeting people which can be both friendly and orientated towards love. The website's originality plays on this dual service which is perfectly interactive between encounters based on affinity and participation in the many leisure activities organised by entertainment professionals. Singleactive members will above all have the opportunity to get to know people during recreational or entertaining encounters in everyday life situations, in areas as diverse as sport, well-being, music or other quality celebratory events.

Spontaneity first and foremost

You could say that Singleactive meetings are more like those that prevailed before the Internet era, a time in which people used to get to know one another in everyday life situations such as at parties, social gatherings or chance encounters. Yes, people used to meet in society, among friends, where people revealed their personalities in everyday life settings It is here that a friendship, attraction or real love was born. People felt things more spontaneously, an undeniable asset that Singleactive intends to offer its members as part of its service offering.

Meeting people without having specific expectations, in a context of leisure activities, discovering each other in real life while having the opportunity to have more individual contacts on the website via email, messaging or VoIP service (Voice over IP). Singleactive offers excellent guarantees of a more authentic encounter, one that many Internet users seeking friendship or love now prefer. There were many fewer frogs to be kissed, and if I'm not mistaken, it would be a good thing to return to that these days...

Make your encounters on Singleactive a success, an individual approach

Can you rely on the advice you find on the Internet to give yourself the best possible chance of success on a dating site? This is a relevant question and it requires an individual approach. The new Singleactive site uses different categories from a conventional dating site. The setting where the future members of Singleactive are going to evolve makes the fundamental difference. It is a setting which is open to public events where people learn to get to know each other and appreciate each other in real life; this daily existence which includes humour, conviviality, partying and the pleasure of enjoying leisure activities together.

“The hour of truth”

The conventional dating site system is sensitive, discrete, or even intimate. You first get to know the other person online, you protect yourself with a chat name or pseudonym and perhaps create a romance with no real substance in the actual encounter. This form of intimacy may also grow on Singleactive as the members enjoy using all the site facilities to get to know each other better. But the many events proposed by Singleactive, can better guarantee a real discovery of the other person’s personality.

By concentrating on an encounter at an event you have chosen does not prevent you from placing an interesting personality profile on the site. This profile will be closer to reality as a real life meeting is often “the hour of truth” you cannot escape. It is pointless to put a ten-year old photograph of yourself on line, lie about your age or provide information which anyone can see through in a few seconds! By its organisation, Singleactive emphasises transparency, asking its members to be “as honest as possible”. And if you are not sure, why not ask your friends whether the profile you have placed on line is really you…  They will notice everything...

In perspective

Should you therefore increase contacts on Singleactive as you would gladly do on a conventional site? It is certainly vital to keep a sense of perspective but do not forget that collecting contacts is not your top priority on Singleactive. Above all, the platform offers an atmosphere of convivial meetings through countless leisure pursuits, where the level of organisation alone guarantees the success of the event. Just imagine the pleasure of being at a concert, a sports outing, a VIP event, a family day or a comfortable relaxing weekend. Singleactive encounters for singles will certainly create solid relationships and true friendships, without forgetting the inevitable promptings of the heart which are bound to make themselves known in such a favourable context....

Finally, just be yourself on Singleactive; spontaneous and open to the pleasure of sharing social activities where you will have all the time you need to reveal your strengths and your personality,  making it more than possible that you will one day be surprised by love...

Dating. Going out.

Online dating and leisure proposals

Welcome to the world of Singleactive, a Swiss dating site with an innovative design. It is innovative in the sense that it is aimed primarily at single people who are decidedly active, people who like to meet new people through recreational, sporting or culturally oriented activities.

Singleactive hopes to promote real encounters between people who don't have partners, through many events that focus on genuine exchanges. These events are available online on the website through many partners.

We know that real life doesn't happen online ... and Singleactive has understood this. Today, singles who dream about a "perfect" meeting readily imagine it taking place in a setting in which special moments are shared, where we give ourselves a break from everyday life, where we discover new things, where we simply share moments of friendship full of humour, discussions, and exchanges of ideas, etc ... basically anything that could favour a quality meeting and help us find a soul mate…

Meetings and events

We can already guess the perfect Singleactive formula which cleverly plays on two levels: a first axis, which is more personal, promoting "private" knowledge of the site members, this famous dating system in which partners discover each other through their affinities. Then there is a second axis, which has more to do with events, in which they became acquainted at a variety of events, outings and trips that have been specially selected for members. And the icing on the cake is the fact that Singleactive partners can not only choose alternative A or B, but they can also combine the two options, meaning that they can participate in events with their consignment of emotions and surprises while they try their luck at looking for love.
