Thank you, yes I am talking to someone on the site, and fingers crossed, seeing how it goes, and of course, good luck to everyone, don't give up, and I would recommend the site 100%

Have met someone through the site with whom I am happily developing what we both believe will be a long term and deep relationship. Delighted by the response I had through my membership and consider myself extremely lucky to have ended up in the position I now find myself in. Have recommended and will continue to recommend the site to others.
