Once we had gathered all of their responses, we did our best to match the participants with a partner with whom they shared similar attitudes and values.
At the end of the conversation period, you will have the option of exchanging contact information with your partner over text chat.
That’s what brought her to the Venngage headquarters on a Wednesday evening in January. A study with the potential for love at the end of it. Surprisingly, the very thing she had decided not to do anymore–talk to a stranger she was matched with online with the purpose of falling in love. She was going to use a “love hack” to make a connection. The article presented a quiz comprised of 36 questions that supposedly lead to love–or, at least, an accelerated feeling of intimacy between strangers.
The idea was that if you sat down with a perfect stranger and exchanged these 36 questions, you would have shared enough intimate information with them to create a feeling of closeness in just one conversation.
This prompted participants to reveal personal thoughts and experiences not typically shared with someone during a first meeting.
At Venngage, we wanted to test the study but with a 21st century twist: can people fall in love through text conversation?
