Success stories

Sharon, 2016-03-12

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.

Sue, 2016-02-20

Thank you. Unbelievably online dating works - even at 61! On New Year's Day 2016 I met the most wonderful man whose written words made me laugh, whose voice made my heart flutter and whose presence makes my whole body alive. I couldn't be happier.

Chris, 2016-08-22

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.
