2gether love dating site
(CNN) — Remember that old tune “Friday, I’m in Love”?
“He asks for no more, and the times we spend together are magical.” The site, launched in early January, is the brainchild of relationship author and blogger Helen Croydon.Its target demographic is people who want to be independent but also want to fall in love, she says.Some may wonder whether Part Time Love is simply the newest in a line of dating sites where users troll for one-night stands.But the site isn’t just Tinder with a romantic sheen, if you believe its marketing spiel. We are for singles looking for regular partners with mutual attraction, genuine friendship, respect and a magical spark but whom have no expectations of moving in after three months and value their free time and independence,” claims the site, which users must opt into via other, more established dating sites.Croydon asserts that a low-maintenance or part-time relationship is distinctively different than the eloquently named “booty call,” or the even more lucid “casual encounter” in that the goal is lasting love. She envisions her demographic as users in their mid-to-late 30s and early 40s who are set in their ways and might find it difficult to adapt domestically to a new partner. In 2011, writer Laura Tennant wrote a column “We’re happily semi-detached” in a British newspaper about her part-time cohabitation with boyfriend, Sean Walsh.Fast forward to 2014, and now Tennant is engaged to marry Walsh.
“Over time, Sean and I have become more and more sure that we are each other’s soulmate and life partner,” she says.
“And we have slowly but surely got to the point where we are ready to make the ultimate commitment to each other.” But, that doesn’t mean they each won’t have their alone time.
She had just completed a difficult divorce — “aren’t they all?
” she joked in an e-mail with CNN — and wasn’t sure she ever wanted to get married again.
What she was sure of was that she and Walsh worked really well together as the relationship stood.
They were “living apart together,” as she called it.
