I've met the love of my life and we intend to spend the rest of our lives together ❤
Karen, 22 March 2022
I am a widow and so putting myself forward took a bit of courage. I had several dates with two men who were lovely, but we didn't click. And then I started talking to a man who was completely out of the box, like no one I have spent time with before. We are having the best time and 4 months on are excited about our future and fresh journey together.
