The second season of the unique social experiment Married at First Sight ended not long ago. In it, a selection of bold unmarried people met their potential life partners for the first time in front of the altar. Everything took place under the constant supervision of television cameras and science was responsible for finding love. One of the selected brides was Klára Prošková, who shared her experiences and feelings on the path towards finding a future partner in an interview for LP-Life.com. We learned what made her sign up for this kind of reality show, what she experienced there and what the experiment brought her. At present, Klára and her partner are the only couple left that still has a functional relationship and keeps working on it. It is evident that they're enjoying their life together.
I admit it wasn't exactly my idea, my sister signed me up. All I had to do was decide whether I would give it a try or not. In the end, I went for it, because I thought - why the Hell not?! There were definitely more reasons for participating than against.
I think I'm definitely dominant. It depends on the circumstances though. When it comes to my counterpart, I couldn't be with anyone as dominant as myself. It wouldn't work, but I definitely prefer a man who hears me out rather than one who listens to me completely.
I didn't have any extra long-term relationship shortly before taking part in the experiment, but I'd experienced one before. It fell apart due to the fact that for some reason, our paths parted naturally, because each of us expected something else from that relationship.
I think they chose me because I stand out from the crowd. And what did I feel? Relief on the one hand and stress on the other. I admit that it was one of the worst moments I've experienced, waiting for a verdict.
What were the scientific tests like for you? Sniffing clothes, evaluating men - did you enjoy it? And did you take it seriously?
It was definitely interesting. As for sniffing t-shirts, that did make me feel a little uncomfortable. In the attractivity test, I really responded depending on how likeable I found the men in the pictures according to their appearance. I wasn't thinking about it too deeply. I was just winging it, but I think I definitely took it seriously.
I don't think there's an easy way to meet someone. I'm definitely not a supporter of all those dating sites, but there's nowhere to meet. So it seems best to meet new people through one's friends and not be afraid of it. I don't think it's easy at all.
I wasn't scared, because I had no choice but to say that "YES". If I was scared, I wouldn't have given it a shot at all.
It was interesting, sure, but I must say that when it comes to Michal and myself, I didn't quite feel like we didn't know each other at all. It helped me a lot that we had the opportunity to have a chat, and I immediately knew that Michal wasn't some shady guy. That I could trust him, that he wasn't phoney. So it was actually relatively easy for me.
You were one of the very few couples that immediately started living together with everything it entails. Are you always like this, that when you like someone, you get right on it?
Yes, that's what I do. I am not in favour of the theory that people have to live together for a while before it can lead to something and the relationship progresses. It would be nothing but a waste of time for me. That's how I see it.
I think it definitely is. If you don't have to hide from your own conscience and aren't ashamed to show what you're really like. So it's a yes for me.
I was used to living alone for a long time. Living in a couple all of a sudden was quite nice on the one hand, but on the other hand it was pretty difficult. We didn't know each other very well, not even in everyday life, and we were watching each other. It was actually the only thing we were able to do, watching each other. And it wasn't always easy.
I thought about it, yes. At that moment, I was going through a pretty big personal crisis. It was right after the end of the filming, when I shook it all of and realized that I wasn't sure what I really wanted. So yes, I did think about it.
I admit that I've learned not to plan ahead. I try to live in the present moment and the way I personally want to live. According to what I feel is best for me. That's how I try to live. As far as Míša and I are concerned, I have no plans for the future. Simply put, it will be how it's supposed to be.
