What It’s Like To Be Match-Made With A Close Friend By Your Brother & Sister
Blind dates are pretty unusual even in the world of dating, but what about being set up with a new friend? It might seem strange at first, but when you think about it, it’s actually a pretty failsafe way of making a new connection. Providing the person doing the matchmaking knows you well enough. And, in the case of best friends Matilda Egere Cooper and Addy Frederick, who work in media and PR, the recommendation was made by the people who know Addy best of all — her brother and sister. She explains, “It’s pretty unique that there’s something about [Matilda and I] that’s so similar other people were saying this friendship has to happen.” And happen it did, with the pair’s friendship still going strong three years later. In partnership with Matlesers, they explain how a shared love of running and a mutual understanding of the need to be generous and warm in all relationships have helped their friendship thrive.
