Let’s be honest, who couldn’t care less about the new year, new me stuff? Us neither, we think you’re pretty awesome and you should think that too.

It seems that this is the time of year where nosey people look at the singles and think they should impart their (unwelcomed and inaccurate) wisdom on us? It’s not surprising that in a survey by dating app, Badoo, 2 in 3 said they find being single in the New Year period harder than at other times of the year.

Badoo, the popular dating app that’s all about dating honestly, found that a huge 70% of singles find it annoying when family or friends try to give them dating advice, with friends (31%), parents (18%) and work colleagues found most guilty of dishing out unwanted advice. Badoo has teamed up with one of our favourite comedian’s, Sideman, to investigate and put an end to the most common, annoying dating advice dished out to singles around the world.

Unwanted dating advice is as old as time, and as unwelcome as well… another lockdown? This third lockdown is proving particularly difficult for most and pressure on your love life is the last thing you need.

Put your hand up if, just like Sideman, annoyingly loved-up friends or family have said to you things like “there must be hundreds of people on dating apps – just be more open” or “you need to be a bit less picky”…?

Well, to these people, we politely say bog off because we’re bored of hearing the same old cliches about love. Fortunately, we’re here to tell you that you don’t need to listen to their BS and it’s about time you write your own dating rules.

Badoo is the dating app that prides itself on cutting through the crap (and believe us, there’s a lot of it) and allows you to date on your own terms.

Maybe you want to find a meaningful connection or maybe you simply want to find someone to chat with, either way, Badoo takes the pressure off and makes online dating so much easier!

When you sign up to Badoo, from the offset they champion you being your authentic, honest self and shine a light on what you want and who you want to talk (flirt) with. They know how important it is to not waste time being anyone or anything but your wonderful self. 

Dating has never been easier with Badoo. Go flirt. Not with us.
