ABOUT THE FRIENDSHIP PROFILE

  • The questionnaire to build the profile is designed to look for two aspects: general personal compatibility and the existence of mutual interests

  • The dimensions are a result of a research project, and the data in part will be used to validate this theory. (see www.practicalfriendship.com for background to research and Sagepub for paper) 

  • It specifically ignores political convictions, ethnicity, gender, age for creating matches, seeking to use data to connect across society and encouraging to give the other person a chance, even if visual or social bias or prejudices would tell you otherwise based on a photo in Tinder-style swiping apps.

  • The questionnaire also ignores items usually connected to romantic potential evaluation. That does not mean that the existence of friendship potential could not lead to a great romantic relationship (indeed it should be a precondition), but the focus and purpose is to to create great platonically compatible connections.

  • Once functionality and effectiveness is established, the tool is intended to be broadened to marginalised communities such as the elderly to encourage participation in civil society by facilitating bona fide friendship matches.
