That’s what brought her to the Venngage headquarters on a Wednesday evening in January. A study with the potential for love at the end of it. Surprisingly, the very thing she had decided not to do anymore–talk to a stranger she was matched with online with the purpose of falling in love. She was going to use a “love hack” to make a connection. The article presented a quiz comprised of 36 questions that supposedly lead to love–or, at least, an accelerated feeling of intimacy between strangers.
The purpose of the study was to achieve an accelerated sense of intimacy between strangers in only 45 minutes.
Students in a university psychology class were partnered up and instructed to ask each other 36 questions designed to probe intimate and unguarded topics of conversation.
