One thing we all have in common is that we all want someone at the end of the day.
A better half.
A partner, in this game called life.
“It’s something that people want and it's just a basic need to feel loved and supported by other people,” Emily Orr, with Reach For Resources, said.
A basic need.
Baked into all our DNA, no matter how we are made.
“We are one of the only people who offer singles nights for individuals with disabilities. A lot of the individuals we serve, they just want to meet someone to spend time with and have a relationship with,” Orr explains.
And so on a cold Valentine's night, Reach, a non-profit whose mission is to support individuals with disabilities and mental illness reach their full potential, provided their clients who are single a place to mingle with a singles mixer.
“Yeah, I hope somebody would like to go out with me,” single mingler Ciara said.
Over games of get to know you Bingo and the tried and true unifier of pizza people, got a chance to take one, on one another.
“I’m looking for am looking for a person who won't talk about their other exes so that she would be focused on only herself and me and nobody else,” mingler Misha said.
Nothing that folks mingling here at that gathering is any different than anyone else.
Misha is looking for a love who isn't harping on her last one.
Ciara just wants to go out have someone say nice things to her.
“I would put my heart and soul into somebody if somebody wants me around,” he said.
A honest man looking to give someone everything.
Well if that's different, I'd say, crown different the king of hearts.
