20 Questions for a Spiritually Compatible RelationshipBy:
We received an email from Naini Duggal, who is launching a new matchmaking website for spiritually-minded singles called MatchMySpirit.com. We logged in and were intrigued by the questions used to create a personal profile, so we asked how the site came about. Duggal wrote:
“My own path is self-realization fellowship (SRF), and I have been deeply practicing the teachings for a long time. Over the years, I have observed that most spiritual people find it very difficult to find a partner who shares the same vibration. So one day, after a deep meditation, I knew that I had to start this website. After a year of research with spiritual organizations, therapists, and psychologists, my partners and I developed these questions based on practical and spiritual principles. The site is free for now. Most proceeds will be going to children’s charities and orphanages. MatchMySpirit is a labor of love.”
Duggal graciously agreed to share the questions, which can be the basis for self-reflection, an intimate weekend with a new relationship, or, of course, to find the person of your dreams.
