Dating Expert & Matchmaker Sarah Louise Ryan interviews online dating expert & website Founder Dennie Smith about finding love online during lockdown.
WHEN coronavirus hit Dennie Smith closed the Vintage 62 hair salon she runs in Selsdon, South London, and furloughed her nine staff.
Dennie commented that “sleeping problems can have a huge effect on a healthy relationship. For example, when people are tired and sleep deprived, they are irritable. This means they turn their frustrations on their partner, and this can build up over time so that something trivial suddenly becomes something much more fundamental. Continual broken sleep is bound to cause friction between couples.
Dennie also covered the intimacy aspect and stated that “in any relationship a physical intimacy is important. Being tired out and exhausted is one of the first reasons that sex goes out the window. This often leads to an imbalance in the relationship. Feeling rested and refreshed can also lead to feeling amorous and loving and ready for a little intimate exercise. When a partner feels rejected, stress levels rise”.
Dennie Smith argues that swiping on the basis of looks has gone too far, she says: “You can order food instantly, clothes easily, and that’s how we’ve got with dating.”
Dennie is now one of the Mayor of Croydon’s Ambassadors.
She will be supporting him with his charity work.
