Channeling Christopher Columbus

By: Laurie Davis, Founder

Christopher Columbus certainly taught us a thing or two. Yes, he sailed the ocean blue in 1492 ... but more importantly, he discovered the unexpected.  

The same often happens in love. You chart a specific course hoping to explore one thing, but twists and turns lead you to undiscovered territory. 

Keeping an open mind often alters the entire map of your future.

So, in honor of the famed (and we’re willing to bet, super cute) explorer, here are our top three digital places to find your perfect match online.

  • Social Media.  Meeting friends of friends is always a great way to find a potential match. And what better place to make introductions than on Facebook? Or, you can leverage relationships you've already built on Twitter. (And I'm not just preaching, it just so happens that I personally found love in 140 characters.) If you need tips, look no further! We offer services specifically for those looking for love in the social Web.
  • Mobile Dating Apps.  We use our phones for everything — checking email, making reservations, updating Facebook — but if you’re not using it to date, you really aren’t making the most out of that little device. We teach you how to manage your love life from your smartphone right here on this blog — from the best apps to how to use them.
  • Dating Sites.  If you’re not dating online already, you’re totally missing out. One in five relationships start on an online dating site, so if you’re not in the mix, you could be missing your Mr. or Mrs. Right. If you’re not sure which site is right for you, sign up to be notified when our free tool, eFlirt Engine, goes live. 

The more you get yourself out there and explore your options like Mr. Columbus did, the more likely you will be to find the one who syncs with your heart's GPS.
