Wild About You

Are you a solo swimmer looking for someone to explore the waterways of life with? Our new Wild About You dating feature will help you connect with like-minded watery souls – and Lydia Davis, matchmaker and dating coach, ofers her advice to help you meet the swimmer of your dreams

How to meet the swimmer of your dreams

A swimmer is not usually recognisable unless donned in a swim cap (so you know they’re serious swimmers), goggs and some skimpy swimwear. So if you can’t spot them away from water how are you going to meet the swimmer of your dreams?! Don’t panic, there are many places….

Your kindred spirit is likely to be at swimming pools, swimming workshops, training clubs, open water clubs, swimming retreats, swimming holidays, meet-ups, on the beach, volunteering at events… or they might not be into swimming just yet but that’s something you can introduce them to! Regular exposure to someone is a great reason to naturally say hello.

If you’re both vaguely familiar with seeing each other at any of the above then it’s really not that strange to start a conversation, it’s just being polite. It can be as simple as a question on their goggles or what they might be training for – once you’ve started a conversation you’re half way there.

We chat with our new guest coach and cover star Olympian Keri-anne Payne about her coaching philosophy, contributing editor Ella Foote meets some swimmers in a supermarket car park, Elaine Howley tells the story of small and repulsive mermaids and Mike Morris slips through time to meet a Victorian swimming champion. And we have two new regular features starting this issue: Eco Heroes, in which we celebrate people and companies striving to save the planet; and Wild About You, where we play matchmaker for solo swimmers looking for love. Plus Plus, how to train for your first open water mile as well as more long distance challenges, training day menus, swimming with cerebral palsy, a dream swim trip in the Maldives and comprehensive UK and international event listings to help you plan your summer swims.
