Can This Quiz Find Your Soulmate?

whitney_grayson_519A look inside the latest digital dating phenomenon

There’s nothing wrong with being a bit of a hopeless romantic and believing that you might just bump into your soulmate on the sidewalk—but what if finding that person could be found through a social experiment? A new interactive website—that’s totally independent of any company and is completely free—called 8^8 wants to give people the chance to meet someone they would otherwise have a 1 in 16 million chance of meeting.

With just eight questions (each with eight answers), the quiz only takes a few minutes to complete. While that part is quick and easy, the directions going into it make sure you know right away that the site is being sincere; the guidelines ask you not to take the test “while drunk, stoned, sleep-deprived, or in an extreme emotional state.” If someone answers identically to you (that’s where the 1 in 16 million chance comes in) you will both receive emails letting you know. Here’s an example of one of the questions: © Courtesy soulmate-quiz

A ticker on the bottom of the site states that the test has been taken more than 236 thousand times and that nearly six thousand matches have been made. If we know how to use a calculator correctly, that’s a 2.5 percent success rate. Which is about 2.4 percent better than the odds of meeting your perfect match in that bar tonight, right?

We love this social experiment—why not give it a shot?!—but keep in mind that the project is about finding someone who answers identically to you. This means that your so-called soulmate could very well be in the form of a best friend and either gender—not necessarily someone who is compatible with you in a more complementary way. Your match, if made, is another you. But hey, that sounds like some good company to keep.


Great event over the weekend and another happy client!



We always love to hear from our clients. It fills us with gratitude and makes us a bit humble at the same time when we get such great letter. We are all very busy in our lives so when someone takes the time to drop us a note like this it makes the experience even more special!

You may remember this outdoor event because we posted it’s setup last week in a few blog posts. The event was over the weekend and the client not only thanked us but shared two pictures with us. Again we thank the Gnall family for entrusting us with their very special wedding event and allowing us to enhance a truly memorable life experience.




I am writing this note with a huge smile on my face!!  The wedding was spectacular & special, even with the thunderstorm that ensued about 15 minutes after the ceremony!!!  No one seemed to care as the partying had begun.  I want you to know how the tent totally blended into our backyard scenery & all our guests that that it was a permanent deck!!  Yikes, can you imagine a deck that size???


From start to finish, you & the rest of your crew have been so helpful & all your hard work was so appreciated.  I must admit, I could not quite imagine how it would look (& why the flooring was so expensive!!!) but it was one of the 7 wonders of the world!!!  I promise to forward a professional photo once we receive them.  Again, my sincere thanks for an outstanding professional job.  I’ve given your name to lots of friends & neighbors.


Best regards,

Susan Gnall

13 Things No One Tells You About the First Year of Marriage

viscusi 260Couples were asked what they learned about each other after their first year of marriage. Below are the answers to some interesting questions. We would like to hear from you about your first year observations so let us know below.



Cydney, 28, says, “I was well aware of the pressure to have children after marriage, but for me, the next big pressure is buying a house. And in an expensive real estate market like Washington, D.C., it’s hard to get friends and family back home in the Midwest to understand why I’m nearly 30 and still renting. My parents ask me weekly how my house hunting is doing.”
