Turkiye meet people dating love
“I don’t like to tell people how we met,” she says of her fiancé.
"It’s not bad, it’s not embarrassing, it’s just not cool: We met on a dating app, like all of you.
I had the opportunity to catch up with the pioneer of speed dating in Istanbul and her First Sight Date organization, which is now making romantic and friend connections all over the country.
First Sight Date is a speed dating organization based in Istanbul organized by Yasemen Aydın, a self-described "entrepreneur, technology geek and dog lover," who lived in the States for a good decade.
Bumble was first founded to challenge the antiquated rules of dating.
Even anecdotally, a lot of the people I spoke to for this piece—all of whom self-identified as dating app haters—nevertheless met their long-term partner on an app.
We’ve made it not only necessary but acceptable for women to make the first move, shaking up outdated gender norms.
We prioritise kindness and respect, providing a safe online community for users to build new relationships.
First Sight Date's next events will take place on Tuesday, Jan. We usually pick jazz clubs or coffee shops for the events and we close down the venue, because people need their privacy," Yasemen explains.
"We also ask our attendees to not reveal the name of the venue to their friends, and taking pictures are forbidden." To attend their events, which cost TL 70 including entrance to their monthly social gathering events, visit their Facebook page or website
