(BRIGHTLINE NEWS)_MIAMI (February 5, 2020) - According to a recent survey*, more than 6 in 10 South Floridians, defined as those who reside in Miami-Dade, Broward or Palm Beach, are dissatisfied with the dating scene in South Florida compared to other cities. Residents cite a small dating pool (55%) and traffic (37%) as the top two reasons why they feel they have been unlucky in love. Though dating beyond county lines might help address the dating pool issue, nearly half avoid dating people outside their city altogether. In fact, nearly 8 in 10 would not travel over 25 miles for a first date (the distance between Miami and Fort Lauderdale is roughly 30 miles), with more than 4 in 10 not willing to travel more than 10 miles.
With convenient access to downtown Miami, Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach, Brightline makes it easy for not-so-long-distance pairs to meet for the first time, for date night, or every night. Throughout the month of February, which this year includes an extra Leap Day, South Floridians can reset their dating app geo filters, release their traffic anxieties and venture farther for love with Brightline’s “RAILLOVE” promo code**, which offers 25% off SMART.
“It would appear that Cupid’s bow can’t quite cut through the time, effort and congestion it takes to date in South Florida, particularly across the imaginary lines between Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach,” said Michael Hicks, Brightline. “Since we first began operating two years ago, we’ve seen many successful cross-county first dates, couples, engagements, and even our very first onboard wedding, and want to gift the community with the opportunity to give regional romance a try.”
The survey also revealed:
“When you can make travel time purposeful, whether answering emails, catching up on reports, or simply relaxing, the distance suddenly disappears,” adds Hicks. “By unlocking an entire tri-county region of singles, the odds of finding a match increase significantly.”
If that first date turns into a second date, lovebirds can travel together and explore the best of South Florida, taking advantage of Brightline’s buy one, get one “Friends Ride Free” offer using the BLFRIEND*** promo code.
