Alan, 2017-05-11

I would never have met my true love had it not been for your site. For this, we cannot thank you enough. We've now been together for a fun filled and very happy year. Not one argument, we get on so well that we are planning the rest of our lives together. So thank you, and if you've read this wondering if you should give internet dating a try, I'd say go for it. You might not find your true love as quickly as we did, but it's worth a damn good try. Good luck!

Fantastic! We've been together for 7 and a half years and we are now engaged to be married. Can't thank you enough.

This is a brilliant site. Despite being a novice at internet dating I found it relatively easy to meet the types of men I thought would suit me. Be open minded but discerning; it helps to know yourself and have a sense of humour.
