I spoke to one of my dear professors last week. It’s been a while since the last time we talked, but he’s of course been very much up to date as to what’s been happening on the GenePartner front.
“Brown,” he says “you’re out of your mind!”
“How is that, Professor?” I say with a smile, because I know how he’d sound if he thought I was really out of my mind.
“This thing is brilliant, really. But no one’s going to go for it!”
“And why do you think that is, Professor?” I’m still smiling (he knows quite some people already “went” for it).
“Look, I know I’m not into your young generation stuff, you’re all into iPhones and Facebooks, and God knows what. But, when it comes to love, I don’t want to look for it in my Eppi (Eppendorf tube). Clarissa* and I met on a dance floor, and it was the most romantic thing, I tell you. Especially, since I took her away from her current dance partner” he gives a throaty chuckle. I know the story, of course, but I keep listening. “That’s the best way to meet your life partner, Brown, trust me!”
I trust him. It’s absolutely breathtaking: dancing to the sounds of waltz, in a dim lighten dance hall, seeing her (or him) few feet away, your eyes meet, the heartbeat speeds up, and you make a first steps toward each other, steps that will lead into a long happy life together.
My parents met in a similar way. My aunt as well. And my grandmother, I think, met my grandfather during a local village party. Lovely, I’m sure.
My best friend, however, who is my age met her husband on Match.com. My dear friend from my Ph.D. days who had her bench opposite mine met her girlfriend on a dating site too. My neighbours, a cool looking couple, met on Parship.de.
I, myself, met my husband on uDate.com. (And, mind you, that was 10 years ago when only geeks went to search for their partners online!)
Today, EVERYONE does online dating. And it’s totally cool. What better way to find the love of your life in a busy world we live in today?
There is a catch though: all your prospective matches with lovely photos and matching profile entries, aren’t necessarily those that will make your heart beat faster.
My 67-year-old professor never ever did online dating, and (luckily for him) doesn’t actually know what it’s like to go on a blind date, with your hopes up, and your heart in your throat, only to have it sink down to the sea level in the first 10 seconds of the meeting.
This is not the one, there’s no click, there’s no energy, there’s simply no chemistry!
First time is ok, second as well, third time is still “fun part of the search”, fourth time, however, it stops being fun, and you start feeling the inevitable: “ I want to find a partner. Now”.
That’s why we’re here.
GenePartner will not find you “love”. Love is and will remain a mystic and never completely explained bond between two people. And it’s good that it’s so.
But what GenePartner WILL do for you is help you find the right partner faster. Among all 30 interesting profiles you’re looking at, you will have a blind date with 3. Those three are your very good social matches, because they share your interests, hobbies, age etc. But – they are also the three people with whom you’ll share the perfect chemistry!
GenePartner won’t tell you anything else then you wouldn’t already know once you meet your online contacts. But instead of four to five months that it will take you to meet your 30 dates, GenePartner will make it in one week.
