They meet with the person and then at the end of the day, they say it was very good, but…didn’t work. So that’s really interesting – for me it is a little bit like science.
On the other hand, if your old relationship just broke up a month ago and you are not ready to enter into a new one you may need six months just to overcome the break-up and start again.
And sometimes people think they are prepared, they say they are ready to move on, but in reality they are not. You go to the gym and find a trainer who will exercise with you and you think that’s it, the weight will come off because the trainer will make it happen.
Jakub Mertl and his wife Kristyna who run a successful personalized dating agency, recently made headlines by establishing an online dating agency catering specially to disabled people.
I met with Jakub to talk about his work and what it takes to find love.
It is not to say that disabled people can only search for love among other disabled people.
And usually people think that the website is only meant for the disabled, but it is an open space, accessible to everyone. We don’t charge any fees, everything is transparent, everything is for free.” Is it just in the Czech Republic?
“No, that’s not so, usually they ask how old are you, what are your hobbies etc., they focus on the life you are currently living, not on what you would like to do.
And we recognize that if you want to find love you may have to change your life a little, you may have to change yourself a little.
He asked if we also catered to disabled people and we said yes we do, but then we found that there were various problems and issues that disabled people face and we thought it would be a great idea if they had a dating agency specially tailored to meet those needs and find love.” So this person came to you to find a partner but was not successful because of his disability?
