Love can still happen…
One of the reasons that making friends and meeting ‘the one’ was easier at school, college or Uni is down to time. The very nature of how these places work meant that there was time to get to know each other in and after class; time to forge a deeper relationship during combined study sessions or whilst working on the same project. Time to talk, have fun together, share ideas, hopes and dreams. Even time to share the last ‘Rolo’ before sharing a cuddle or two.
Of course, it’s not impossible to make friends or meet a life partner outside of these institutions but that ideal scenario – meeting single people in a similar age group who are open to dating – is challenging to replicate, once we’ve moved on in life.
Human connection is as important to our well-being as a healthy diet and getting enough exercise. Loneliness is on the rise in the UK, especially having just gone through the lockdown. Recent studies suggest that over 45% of adults have suffered from loneliness at some point, with some going five or six days without seeing anyone. Whilst some may thrive, enjoying the solitude, others would rather share their life with somebody special. We are social animals, longing for connectivity; to be able to chat and laugh and be heard. And that’s where the problem often arises; where do we find that companionship, that special connection, when most of our social circle is already in a relationship, making the pickings slim?
There seem to be new dating apps popping up daily to cater for every need and it is easy to get lost in a sea of apps and profiles. The truth is, however, that dating apps can be bad for your mental and physical health. The merry go round of swiping left or right, messaging, being rejected and starting again is an endless one.
So, what can we do if we find ourselves swept up in the loneliness epidemic? Nicky Dunn from Pi Society explains that there has been a huge increase in their matchmaking service for people in the Exeter and Plymouth areas who are alone and looking for a long-term partner. Single people can benefit from Pi Society’s expert advice and assistance with dating.
“We provide human intelligence as well as offering a personalised and proven approach to finding potential compatible partners.”
“Everyone you meet through our service will have been rigorously vetted. We interview all members face to face or on zoom to enhance the matching process, to screen personality, values, emotional availability, body language and physical appearance which would not be evident in an online application.”
Pi Society takes pride in creating the time and space for the magic of traditional dating to take place; the time and space for people to find ‘the one’.
Since its inception in 2017, Pi Society has brought over 70 couples together into long term relationships. Online communication is non-emotional – connect in real life with either Pi Society’s Matchmaking or Social events and you might find someone who you would have swiped left and never known what you were missing!
