David, 2017-02-01

We are blissfully happy and have moved in together. Thank you!

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.
