Matchmaker Monday: What Is The Difference Between A Value and A Preference?

When you're asked what you're looking for in a partner, we often give our preference i.e. they will drive a nice car, they will look good, they will be a certain height etc

However as matchmakers, we will always ask you to consider what value is the most important to you i.e. you value family and you want children, and you value exercising everyday and eating clean etc

From what you value, we will then help you work out what values you're looking for in partner i.e. if one of your values is you have a strong faith/religion, then the value you're looking for in a partner is someone who also shares a similar view on religion/faith

THAT is what you will tell someone when they ask what you're looking for!

Have a listen to our matchmaker Kimmi Tak talk through the difference between values and preferences, and if you have any questions - let us know!

With the lockdown rules relaxed, many people are faced with a tough Q. Love or family?

People who have spent almost three months in solitude under lockdown rules are now be able to visit another household, containing any number of people, freely.
They will also be entitled to stay overnight and vice versa.

Being asked to choose between seeing your family and essentially– human touch will leave many with a very personal dilemma.

What do you think about the new rules? Have you had to make a similar choice?

Why Are Men Like Tofu?

Because you can try different types and have different experiences - you might not like one experience but you might love the other!

In today's pre-recorded video, Pam Chand and Kimmi Tak discuss the pressures men feel in relationships.

Whether that be the pressure of not being able to discuss their emotions, the lack of support from partners and friends and the overall idea that we can be kinder and treat others how we want to be treated ourselves.

If you have any questions you'd like us to answer, or topics you'd like us to discuss, please leave us a comment or drop us a DM!

(Also Pam was there today for Matchmakers Monday but unfortunately, technology chose to be tricky today and just showed Kimmi - excuse her blowing her nose!)
