Interview with shy Laura, who’s now in happy relationship with Gerry
What made you decide to try Vital Partners?
I was not going out much at the time, and I also didn’t feel comfortable with the idea of trying Tinder or Apps/Websites like that for meeting people. I guess I don’t feel I can trust them, and also feel there’s a lot of people looking to have flirts in there and I didn’t want to get myself exposed to that.
How did you know/ when was the moment you knew that your partner was the person for you?
I didn’t have high expectations when I signed up with VP, but I guess doing that was an indication of myself being more open to the possibility of finding a partner. And that certainly helped 🙂
I liked Gerry and his personality from day one, but I knew he was right for me after a few dates. I started to feel completely comfortable around him, started to notice his values, started to deeply care for him, and naturally felt I wanted to spend more and more time with him 🙂
When previous matches didn’t work out (if any), what kept you motivated to keep looking? (i.e did you look the meeting/phone call as learning experiences, what did you take away from the previous unsuccessful matches?)
I honestly didn’t look for learning anything from previous introductions. When I noticed few things that triggered incompatibility I tried to listen to that feeling without getting attached and trying not to judge the other person either. In the end, what has to happen will happen and what does not, it won’t 🙂
Did you ever feel frustrated by the time it took to find your current partner, or was giving up in mind? How did you combat it if you did? If not, why not?
Not frustrated, but I did feel sometimes that I was too shy for this. In those moments I kept on repeating to myself that this is not easy for anyone and I guess that’s what kept me going…
Now that you’re in a happy relationship, what would you say to past and single you? Any advice for people still looking for their partner in crime?
I’d say, being on your own can be beautiful too if you are Ok with who you are. I encourage people to look for a partner, but no need to rush it or to feel bad with yourself while it does not happen. Just to stay open was key for me so I guess that’s the only wise advise I can give anyone 🙂
