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.

Lynne, 2016-09-13

I had virtually given up on internet dating, but then, at last, I met my perfect match and we're so happy! So for all those disbelievers... If it can happen for me, it can happen.

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.
