The Short Version: Elena Albamonte’s fun dating site, Lawyers in Love, aims to help legal professionals — with busy and daunting work lives and who prefer analytical debates to small talk — find like-minded individuals.
Starting with the similarity in the work they do, users on the site are able to more quickly feel a connection with their matches and spend less time with icebreakers or explaining their schedules.
In discussing her own experience as a lawyer trying to date, Elena said that meeting someone who finally got it (understood her work and its jargon, didn’t mistake her confidence for arrogance, had similar lengthy work hours) just made everything go so much smoother on their dates.
After such a positive experience, she continued to seek out legal professionals, and all of those dates ended up better than anyone she happened to meet in a random profession.
That was the experience Elena Albamonte discovered when she ventured to Match years ago to try online dating.
“I eventually met a lawyer on Match and it just seemed like we had a lot more in common,” Elena said.
For now, Elena can be proud that Lawyers in Love provides an easy way for busy legal professionals to get to meet, flirt, and build relationships with like-minded people on their own schedule.
