When we are looking for a partner, why do people naturally think if you have certain hobbies and a particular preference in music you will naturally be attracted to people who share your same tastes?
This is true of every kind of person, we all know who we like, who we are attracted to, and who we would love to come home to each day.
When people who are disabled start dating, why do we all assume that just because they have the same condition they will get on? Everybody has their own distinct personality; we are all individuals.
I know if I had read a dating profile of my husband, there would never have been an introduction! Some of his listed hobbies would be, bird watching, walking in the country (for miles and miles!), and climbing. Yep, from reading his profile I would have thought, ‘absolutely no match there’. I won’t go into my hobbies, but suffice it to say, they are the polar opposites of the man I have been very happily married to for the past 40 years. Oh, and don’t get started on our musical tastes…
We at Flame, do not match people purely by their hobbies, etc., we help to select potential partners - using our knowledge of our disabled members - by personality. By getting to know each and every member, as soon as a good match appears it’s that ‘Eureka’ moment for us!
