In addition to options for one-to-one dating connections, A Natural Affinity members can join activity groups and create new ones, attend events and engage in collective conversations.
In their search for a romantic partner, singles with a lifestyle oriented towards health and wellness, personal growth, spirituality and sustainable living, are interested in finding someone with whom they can share this common ground. With tens of thousands of like-minded singles in the tri-state area, ANaturalAffinity.com is helping to meet the needs of this growing population.
In addition to a range of options for creating one-to-one dating connections, A Natural Affinity offers an array of interesting and engaging Activity Groups. “Many people find that getting together in a group setting based on shared activities provides a more comfortable alternative to a blind date” says Ms. Gruenwald. Groups include: Hiking Clubs, Natural Food Potlucks, Indie Film Goers, Arts & Culture Group, Organic Gardeners Group, Drum Circles and Community Service Projects Group. The Events Calendar has a variety of get-togethers scheduled including plays, dinners, hikes, and movies.
Helping to further enhance the sense of comfort and connection among site members is the 'Degrees of Connection' feature. With a regionally based membership of people who share common lifestyle pursuits, very often site members have overlapping circles of friends in common. The site automatically provides a visual representation of these extended ‘friend of a friend’ connections. For example, viewing the profile of Jeremy, you might find that your friend Natalie is friends with Mary, who is friends with Steve, who in turn, is friends with Jeremy.
Launched in March of this year, the site already has many wonderful success stories of new found love. “Thanks to your site I met a wonderful man. We have so much in common and have been happily dating for over two months. Without A Natural Affinity we would not have met. I hope that many other people are as successful and happy with the site as I have been! Thank you very much!” Sara K., Philadelphia.
Ms. Gruenwald designed ANaturalAffinity.com as an alternative to the ‘dating as commerce’ model of so many dating and online social networks. The site has no advertising and has been priced at an affordable $8 a month.
