Nevertheless, some Londoners will have you believe that they have a hard time meeting potential love interests in the capital.
You’ll be surprised how often guests say “I liked so and so but they were a bit serious about it all”.
Single people in their twenties arrive in London all the time.
University relationships come to a natural end and people drift apart in long-distance relationships, so this leaves thousands of singles arriving in London each year, which is great news for the existing dating population.
The trick is to leverage this question in order to find out more. There is no need to divulge your inner most desires or fears. But likewise, kicking back with both arms spread across the back of the chair, legs spread wide, suggests an ego so desperate to impress that substance abuse will be suspected. If you fancy having a playful night and think making something up for each date is witty and clever, perhaps think twice. If you are going to do this then make sure it’s obvious you’re having a laugh otherwise people will think you’re a pathological liar.
And yet almost all of us can find some part of our job that we enjoy. Open hand gestures and an open body while facing the person show interest and make people feel relaxed and safe. Holding your knees and crying, or folding your arms and scowling a good conversation maketh not.
London is a dynamic city, filled with fascinating people.
