First date success! Never would have believed I could be so lucky, or if a dating site would work for me. Well I've found someone who makes me laugh, and so much more. Thank you. And for those who are still looking it can work.

I have found the man of my dreams, the love of my life and my forever partner all rolled into one. We are planning on living together as soon as we can arrange the practicalities and we are looking forward to spending the rest of our lives together. We are SO happy. Thank you very much.

I have nothing but praise for this site... I met really genuine people on here after months of hideous dates from other sites!
