Founder Charlie Spokes Says: 

“I’m so thrilled to welcome Sarah to the MFC team as our Resident Dating Expert. She joins at a very exciting time and will be influential in growing the business beyond London & Bristol to a nationwide brand.”

Sarah started out in the dating industry as a matchmaker in a Mayfair dating agency running around London grabbing coffees and getting to know busy singles who are time-poor but serious in their search to find a partner. In 2016, having moved to NYC to run an international dating agency Sarah began to really understand the intricacies and dilemmas which surround dating in big cities. Sarah found that single professionals were busy navigating the modern search for love but experiencing lacklustre offline offerings and suffering online dating burnout due to endless swiping. With global industry knowledge under her belt, Sarah returned to the UK where she co-founded Staycations with MFC founder Charlie Spokes, for singles who want to connect beyond the swipe and attend UK breaks with like-minded single professionals in the UK. Hence, the ‘Staycay’ was born. 

Do you have a burning question you would like answering about modern dating? Are you feeling a little bit stuck with how to navigate events successfully as a single or are you feeling a little unsure about how to get connected with like-minded people who are on your wavelength in a space that doesn’t involve swiping? Well, Sarah would love to hear from you. Drop by and say hi here: sarah@myfriendcharlie.co.uk
