Online dating is a time waster

More and more singles prefer personal dating agencies to online portals. The advantages are obvious: less time, less risk, more success.

At the dating agency freie, the trend has been recognized for some time: “Many of our customers have already tried out online services before they end up with us,” explains Kathrin Grüneis.

On average, customers date around four potential partners before they find a match. “Love at first sight is of course a stroke of luck – but that happens all the time,” says Kathrin Grüneis. Nevertheless, there are customers who don’t fit into her portfolio: “If you’re looking for a quick adventure, you’ve come to the wrong place. But there are enough offers for that anyway.”
