Brian, 2017-03-30

We are now married after ten years together!

Chris, 2016-08-22

First date success! Never would have believed I could be so lucky, or if a dating site would work for me. Well I've found someone who makes me laugh, and so much more. Thank you. And for those who are still looking it can work.

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.
