Recently, Sally, 28 from Sydney, went on what can only be described as the Perfect First Date with a guy who could only be described as THE Perfect Man – he was handsome, charming, witty and genuinely interested in her. According to e Harmony Psychologist and Dating Expert, Melanie Schilling, it’s important to note there are two types of ‘spark’; “I call them the ‘WOW’ and the ‘AHHH’.
The WOW is often driven by hormonal reactions to the physical presence of an attractive mate.
Here’s some advice just in case you do sign-up for (please don’t do it! Of course, we don’t even know if we were contacting real women most of the time.
All our members are single people in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland just like you, who are looking for a bit of craic and romance. We have strict rules – no married people, no sexual profiles.
Another difference is that other dating sites make you subscribe to read and reply to messages, but on Spark!
“With the WOW, there’s a physical response, like Sally’s, with quickened pulse, sweating, dilated pupils and heightened sexual awareness.” Needless to say, the WOW is typically short-lived and does not always translate into a deeper connection. “This is typically based on a deeper connection, compatibility and shared values,” explains Melanie.
So the million dollar question; which one is better?!
"fireworks," "electricity," a "spark." They feel drawn to each other even though they know nothing about each other's values, personal qualities, expectations, or if their personalities are compatible.
