Hey you gorgeous gang of absolute BAE’s! How are you? 

I have been travelling non-stop these last few weeks and so to be sat down in a lovely little cafe watching the world go by and drinking a (rather fancy) lemon and ginger tea is pretty much perfect tbh.

So today’s post delves into the world of dating…DUN DUN DUUUNNNNNN!!! Now if you’ve read my recent ‘Keeping Up With Kate’ post (read it here) then you’ll know one of my goals for the rest of 2017 is to be more spontaneous, get out more and meet new people!

So to start things off I downloaded Badoo. Now I’ve had dating apps before, there’s nothing ground breaking about that but Badoo knows where it’s at (literally) my favourite thing about the app is their ‘People Nearby’ feature. It allows you to check out potential dates or even just seek out new friends to chat too wherever you are. So if you’re visiting a new city or want to see who else spends their days walking along London’s Southbank then this is IDEAL!

Another thing that Badoo can boast about is the fact that they are the largest dating app in the world, with currently just over 363 million users world wide.

363 MILLION?! I mean that’s crazy!

It also gets you to verify your human existence upon sign up because catfish-ing is sooooo last season.

As I mentioned before my fave feature is the ‘people nearby’ screen, mainly because I figure if there’s someone else who’s been frequenting my favourite London spots then that’s a common interest right there, straight off the bat. I know ‘opposites attract’ and all but it’s always good to have something in common if only to use as a opening line. “Oh I noticed you were in Camden Market too” it makes conversation a whole lot easier, especially if you get nervous when sending that first message. 

For me my passion is theatre and the arts and so whenever I’m around places within London that are particularly ‘artsy’ (think Barbican and Soho) I always have a quick look at my Badoo app, likewise my friend has a thing for a man in a suit so whenever we’re in the city *ping* she’s straight on her profile checking out who’s online.

So wish me luck, who knows out of over 363 million people there might be someone destined to be my Badoo Bae *crosses fingers* and if not well, we all love telling a bad date story with the girls over a cocktail or two right?
