Why we're here
The biggest challenge today in dating and relationships is not finding a partner, but the fact that many of us lack awareness of what we need and want in a relationship. 70% of all new relationships end within the first year, and near half of all marriages in the west end in divorce.
We believe that the reason for this is that most of us enter new relationships unintentionally based on attraction or some basic similarity, only to find out later that we didn’t really want the same things, or that we’re not compatible in terms of fulfilling each other’s needs in a relationship.
Relate was founded upon the belief that self-discovery is the key to both deeper connection and a meaningful, long-lasting relationship. More specifically, the journey to finding and choosing the right partner for you starts with becoming clear on what you need and want in your life and in a relationship (your personal values). Basically, who you want to be in this world and how you want to live your life, and use that as a basis and compass for your partner searching, to find someone to share the life you want to live.
