Hello, Loving Without Boundaries (LWB) community! My heart goes out to you during these challenging times. I hope you are doing your best to keep safe. Sharing inspirational stories of hope, inclusion, and healthy lifestyles are more important than ever. If you are looking for ways to connect with loved ones you are separated from, check out this blog post that I shared recently. On to another inspiring story…
I am delighted to share my latest podcast interview that I released recently with Russ Haywood of the newly launched CanWe app. I received an email from CanWe, introducing this new startup that has built not a dating app, but rather, a dating guide, that is focused on helping people date more intentionally. I was especially interested in learning more when they advised me that the LGBTQ+ community is finding the app particularly useful, because it was giving them more clarity around whether or not they were in sync with their partner(s). Although we didn’t get to talk about this aspect during our interview, I was really impressed with the types of conversations that Russ is hoping people have as a result of putting their intentions first, and then determining other characteristics such as attraction second. Russ! I am so excited for you and your beautiful, heart-centered mission! May you continue to inspire more and more people to live their best and most authentic lives! Thank you for reaching out to us, so that we can help share your fantastic message!
Here is his bio:
Russ Haywood is a social systems innovator, and has a Philosophy BA and Political Theory BA from the University of Minnesota and an MBA from Hamline University. Russ is also co-founder of Unveil Social, a Minneapolis B-corp that just launched CanWe – Your dating guidance app. CanWe’s mission is to help daters cut out the frustration of modern dating with researched guidance.
Some topics we discuss in this fun, informative, and entertaining interview:
- How being a struggling actor in NYC initially turned him onto the problem of how to bring the right people together.
- How dabbling with feminism as a young man was very confusing for him with respect to dating.
- Why so many people are frustrated with dating and dating apps.
- How and why it is challenging for people to be really honest with their dating profiles.
- What he feels is the critical stuff to evaluate when meeting/dating someone.
- Why CanWe is distinctly different than dating apps, which are all about seeking.
- How the CanWe app works and can be utilized on your own and then eventually with a potential partner.
Tune in to listen to this fantastic and fascinating podcast episode!
