Giovanni is 72. He is a retired accountant who lives in Mississauga and has been divorced for ten years. He was born in a suburb of Rome and moved to Canada when he was 23. He’s a member of the Knights of Columbus and likes to play cards and bocce ball.

Paul is 66 and is a recently retired transit driver who lives in Etobicoke. His wife still works full time. Paul’s parents were born in Milan and he speaks Italian fluently. He wants to stay active and perhaps join a men’s club but he’s unsure about how to begin.

Giovanni and Paul both completed profiles with Amintro. They then receive messages from Amintro, suggesting each other as potential friends and highlighting the reasons why they might make good friends. If they both accept this “friend suggestion”, they receive an “introduction” message that allows them to communicate directly with one another, within the Amintro system.

In this way, Amintro ensures that there is mutual agreement and interest in speaking to each other and people’s contact details remain private for your security. You can speak online, inside the Amintro system, for as long as you wish, before determining whether to convert an online friend to someone you actually meet.

Giovanni and Paul chat online several times. They decide to meet for coffee at a nearby Tim Horton’s and find that they do have a lot in common, in fact, Giovanni offers to bring Paul to one of his weekly card games at an Italian club. Paul and Giovanni find that neither of them are great card players but they have a lot of laughs. They now meet weekly to play cards at the club and they are planning to join the bocce league together when it begins the season.
