February (or really any time) is a good time to celebrate all kinds of love and connection with family, significant others, and friends. The science of connection teaches us that there are very good reasons for why we feel close to some people, and not so close to others. It can be hard to put your finger on the exact reasons why you feel connected. You might leave a conversation with a good friend thinking, “I just feel good around them.” If someone asks you why, it can be hard to put into words. The things we can point to are our common interests. You probably share things in common with close friends or family members, and many people engage in common interests with their romantic partners. But sharing interests alone does not leave us with that feeling, “they really get me.”
Even though many find it hard to articulate what feels good about our connections, it’s actually not that complicated: it’s your personality. When people engage with us in ways that are compatible with our personality we feel good. We feel loved, heard, and valued. There are a lot of ways to find people with common interests, but it is a lot more work to find people who share your interests and “get you” on a deeper level. Fortunately, Konveau can help with that. You can find people with compatible personalities to your own, so that more of your conversations leave you with that “good feeling.” Real connections go beyond common interests. Real connections go deep, last longer, feel great, and remind us how great it is to be human. Happy connecting!
