Success Stories

David, 2020-09-14

Very happy with the help in finding a lovely, lovely lady.

Sara, 2020-10-10

With just about the first person who responded to my profile, I messaged him and found that we had so much in common that we've met up and become crazy for each other. The potential candidates are so much better / offering more intellectually than the other dating sites I've tried, I'm so pleased with Encounters and would recommend the site to others. I've been very lucky!!
