Later this month, vegan matchmaking service Find Veg Love will launch its first eight-week online dating course for vegan singles. The Ready For Love course will cover weekly topics such as loving yourself, compatibility and love languages, dating, and essential communication skills for healthy relationships. The topics will be taught through a series of videos, exercises, recommended readings, and live coaching. Participants will also have access to a private Facebook group. “While working with private one-on-one clients for my matchmaking service, I realized there was a really big need for this,” Find Veg Love founder Karine Charbonneau told VegNews. “I could see that veg folks struggled to find love. They think it’s because their ideal partner doesn’t exist, or that the pool of veg singles is too small. But after helping so many of them, I’ve realized it’s really because they are blocking their own love life by putting up walls, and not being able to let go of certain things that are holding them back.” Charbonneau believes the course will help vegan singles restore their feeling of hope that it is possible to find a partner who shares their beliefs, and it will give them a clearer picture of who they are and what they are truly looking for in a partner. Previously, Charbonneau hosted Veg Speed Date events throughout the United States and Canada, but she is now focusing on her matchmaking services. She plans to launch more courses this year, which will address different stages of relationships.
