After many dates with many different lovely ladies, I've finally found my match, thank you Encounters, she is totally perfect!

Thank you Encounters! Without you I would never have found my wonderful husband. We married within a year of meeting and now have the most perfect life. I will be forever grateful to you for giving me the confidence to be brave.

This is one of the best dating sites I have tried, not merely because I found my perfect match but because it was really well organised and presented.
