In a beautiful twist of fate, the name of the horse that came to visit him at the hospice, was also called Victor.Patrick was clearly overjoyed by his visit from Victor the horse, and got to feed him apples, carrots and polo mints (a horse’s favourite by all accounts).This experience came as a real surprise to Patrick’s daughter, Jayne, who had come to visit her dad and arrived to see him stroking the gentle animal outside the hospice.“I simply didn’t expect him to have an experience like that at the hospice! “He’d actually had a couple of bad days and wasn’t himself at all, but he was absolutely full of beans when I arrived and you could see the joy on his face from being able to interact with such a gorgeous animal.We happen to be next door to the North Devon Equine Rescue Centre, so we thought we’d see if they might be able to bring a horse to the hospice to visit Patrick.
By its own admission, Sapio is an app that "gets to the core of people through their experiences, heartfelt opinions and bold passions". Sapio has been designed in such a way as to allow users to evaluate their potential matches on the basis of both their physical appearance as well as his or her wits.
They’re attracted to someone based on a matching level of intelligence, interests, conversation, drive, sense of humor.
For many, defining oneself as sapiosexual has become a statement against the current status quo of hookup culture and superficiality, where looks are prized above all else,” co-creator Kristin Tynski told the Sapio’s interface is similar to that of Tinder, so users still swipe to like.
It comes with chat functionality, but the same is enabled only when two potential matches have liked each other.
In related news, popular dating app Tinder took an important step towards becoming more gender-inclusive last year.
It may not be the right place for those seeking partners with 'similar' intelligence.
