Think about the best relationships that you have had: the best friendships and romantic relationships. The eternal question is of course, what is the key to a good relationship? How do you build the foundation of a strong and sound relationship?
Some say it is important to find someone who balances you out, others say it is important to find someone who is similar to you or who shares the same interests as you. Really what you want is a balance of the two, but it is very difficult to set about trying to find someone who balances you out. It is much easier to at least start by looking for someone who has the same interests and hobbies as you do.
Online dating sites have realised that this is the simplest way for people to begin a conversation or a relationship and so of course there are boxes you can tick or fill in that describe your interests on general dating sites, and these can certainly be helpful and might even give you a greater range of people that you could meet; but this means wading through more messages and more people.
If you know what you are really passionate about then simply ticking a box might not be sufficient. Instead why not look at dating sites that specialise in your passion.
For equestrian enthusiasts here is a dating site that seems to love your hobby as much as you do. Whether you own a horse, ride horses or simply love horses this is a site where you can meet likeminded people.
The equestrian world itself is quite small and the six degrees of separation almost certainly apply but this does not mean that meeting someone is a simple matter. This is why a dating site like this can be so wonderful. On the one hand it can introduce you to people you have never met before, but who have the same passions as you. But on the other hand it can also introduce you to people you know, but the site makes you see or consider them in a different light.
It is almost too easy to overlook the people we already know because we have already made up our minds about them. Yet sometimes it is the person you know but have overlooked that can bring you the greatest joy.
In either case a dating site, such as this, that is dedicated to people with the same interests is an exciting opportunity to meet people. And even more than that, what is often the case is that people who share one interest often share others, for example horse lovers are often also dog lovers and love the outdoors.
Imagine an afternoon date spent riding or walking through the woods. Shared activity and interests can make for a strong foundation, but of course it is a question of finding the right person to ride with.
