Grab your phone and get out there!

Halloween is here! Those of you that love to play Pokemon Go may be well aware that there are some great special events and bonuses going on in celebration of this fun holiday. This means an influx of people out and about while enjoying the game.

You may be wondering why this is relevant. Let me explain.

Pokemon Go has been a huge success with over 100 million downloads. And, while it might seem like it’s just for kids, many milennials are also embracing the app because of its 90’s era nostalgia. It has also had an unexpected effect on some: it’s led to some great dating and relationship opportunities for some singles.

Why has this happened? Well, it was created to not only be a game, but a fun social app that encourages you to get outside more. So, while you’re busy trying to chase down that elusive Pikachu you may find yourself crossing paths with someone also on the hunt that you just may “click” with.

Here are 4 ways Pokemon Go could make a great way to find a date:

  1. Social Media Groups: There are tons of Facebook groups dedicated to playing Pokemon Go. You can check them out to find events and people looking to meet up and play the game together. You would be surprised how many great single adults you’ll find that are willing to meet up.
  2. Established Mutual Interest: You already know you both have something in common that you enjoy doing. It’s also a great icebreaker/excuse to initiate a conversation.
  3. Additional Social Opportunities: Getting out more means more chances to meet someone unexpectedly, even if they don’t play the game. Just make sure to look up from your phone so you don’t miss a potentially life-changing meeting!
  4. Walking Improves Your Mood: Anyone that plays Pokemon Go is aware that walking is a fundamental part of playing it. Walking is also an amazing natural mood enhancer, so if you’re feeling great that will also help your confidence while you’re out and about. Talk about multiple benefits!

So, get that app loaded and get out of the door! You never know what “bonus” you might find while having fun!
