Cupid and Career: The Amusing Similarities of Matchmaking in Both Pursuits

Cupid and Career: The Amusing Similarities of Matchmaking in Both Pursuits

Ladies and gentlemen, gather ‘round because I’ve got an interesting take for you: dating and job searching are basically the same things!

Think about it: you’re out there trying to put your best foot forward, whether it’s crafting the perfect dating profile or polishing your resume to make it shine like a diamond. It’s like you’re trying to sell yourself, and it’s a little bit uncomfortable, but you know it’s necessary.


Next up, the first date/interview. You’re trying to make conversation and gauge whether or not this is someone/somewhere you want to spend more time with. It’s like trying to figure out if you want to spend the next 8 hours a day with these people for the next few years.


And then, the waiting game. You wait to hear back from that job you applied to or that person you asked out on a second date. It’s a unique type of agony, similar to being trapped in a scorching heatwave and eagerly awaiting the arrival of the ice cream truck.


But, just like in dating, sometimes things don’t work out. Maybe you don’t get the job, or maybe that person you thought was “the one” turns out to be not so great after all. But don’t get discouraged! Keep putting yourself out there because you never know when the perfect opportunity will come along. And who knows, your dream job or dream partner could be just around the corner.


So, the next time you’re swiping through dating apps or scrolling through job postings, remember: it’s all just a numbers game. Keep putting yourself out there; eventually, you’ll find the perfect match. And who knows, maybe you’ll even fall in love with your next job. So, don’t be afraid to put on your dancing shoes and hit the job market with a smile!
