Success stories

Renate, 2016-09-14

I have found the perfect match. It was very hard for me to go out there on a dating website, but after a few unsuitable matches and fans, I have to say that my misgivings about dating online were not justified.

Kathryn, 2016-12-06

I didn't just meet my match, I met my soulmate. We were married 8 weeks ago. Bliss doesn't really cover it! With the right attitude, this is the perfect way to meet your other half - I can't recommend it highly enough. Thank you for turning my world around.

Having had no luck on a previous site, I found a perfect match the very first day, and he lived within walking distance!
