There are, of course, the obvious differences right from the outset, that moment when you catch eyes with someone, and you both know that you want the other person to make a move.
Argentine men definitely don’t struggle with the same affliction that many men back home do, this terrible problem of being so awkwardly British that they can barely muster up the courage to walk up to a girl in a bar, let alone ask her out for a drink having just met her.
By contrast, I believe that here in Buenos Aires, so far, all of the matches I have made have been more genuine and with people who actually have an interest in meeting you – or at least getting to know you a little. A fairly gorgeous, 25-year-old man, with a relatively well put-together Happn profile, English speaking, and willing to spark up a conversation with a little more than “hi!
” – admittedly it wasn’t ground-breaking but it was enough to motivate a response.

In terms of selecting pictures, something I noticed while trawling through profiles, is that the Argentine boys definitely get their profiles a bit more “right” than your average English boy.Here in Buenos Aires, the newest fad is the dating app Happn, which takes the online dating world a step further.It doesn’t just match your profile to somebody with similar interests, but it actually notifies you when you walk past someone who has either liked you, or who you would be compatible with. At first glance is sounds a tad creepy, but I have taken it upon myself to do some research – from a work based perspective – so that I could get my head around the situation a little better.Is it really any wonder that success rates are so much lower when we’ve got almost only a third of the choice that Argentines have?
After just a couple of days, I was chatting with various other “Happnrs,” and it was fairly clear from the onset that people here are much more proactive on these apps.
So from the initial pairing online, right up to the end of the first date, I’ve highlighted my five main observations as a result of using dating apps on either side of the Atlantic.
