Gideon Moncrieffe, 29, former bachelor from ESSENCE’s popular 30 Dates in 30 Days, has taken his search for love online.
“The one thing that I realized about the online dating scene is that, there are real people looking for real love to be reciprocated unconditionally,” he says.
As Gideon’s friends settle down, he looks forward to meeting his own soul mate and trading in his groomsmen title for groom.
Gideon’s account caught the eye of Match.com execs who featured him in a national campaign as a member of the site.
“I have not met my soul mate yet, but I have met some really interesting people and new friends,” he says of dating online.
For a first date, the Brooklyn native wants it to be as comfortable and fun as possible.
“With a woman I once was head over heels, for our first date we went to The Brooklyn Museum and then to a local lounge. We had a great time,” he shares.
Gideon continues to use singles sites and social networks to meet new friends, and possibly his match.
