Lesley and Mike
April, 2012

I was widowed and Lesley was a divorcee, both in out late 50’s. In January 2005 I received a message from Lesley via the Friends Reunited Dating site where we had both been registered for a while inviting a messaging correspondence. We soon discovered that we lived only 20 miles apart in Lincolnshire, and messaging turned to phone calls and eventually to a meeting over dinner at a restaurant of Lesley’s choice. We discovered very quickly that we shared many common interests and very quickly realised that what started as a friendship turned to real love. We were married and have since moved to the Norfolk coast. We are currently looking forward to sharing our 5th wedding anniversary and our 65th Birthdays with our lovely families. We are blissfully happy and share two wonderful families with two small grandchildren and another on the way. It proves the point that you are never too old to find true happiness in life, and all thanks to your wonderful website.



Katie and Mark
April, 2012

21 days ago today I sent Mark a message. He had a sensitive smile and looked like a really sincere man. That started what was to be a very fast and amazing journey to what have been the happiest days of my life. He was the first person I sent a message to. Really! As soon as he replied with not just the usual one line that most men can manage but a whole page of funny and genuine stories about himself and his family I knew we would hit it off and be great friends. After only 6 days we met and decided to run away to Gretna Green as soon as possible. We haven't, of course, because family is so important to both of us but we will be married one day, I just know it. As far as I'm concerned I have found my best friend and can't imagine my life without him. So it's a huge thank you to Friends Reunited Dating from both of us for bringing us together.



Helena and Jon
April, 2012

I had been a member of Friends Reunited Dating for over a year, I was looking for friendship and companionship. Last April a pair of eyes attracted me. It took several days for me to pluck up the courage to contact her, but I kept going back to the photo. Once I had contacted her I was surprised that I got a reply, we then started communicating frequently. Our first date was on the beach at Weston-super-Mare. We had a lovely time just walking and talking. We were both cautious about entering a new relationship but we went from strength to strength. I proposed to Helena 30 seconds into New Years day and we now look forward to planning our wedding day together.



Lynsey and Bryan
April, 2012

Bryan tracked down his first love, Lindsey through Friends Reunited, he said 'I'd never forgotten Lindsey and when I saw her name on the website I clicked on her profile and that was it 'We've been together ever since. Lindsey has moved to Falkirk where we now live and life is fantastic. 'She was always the one for me. We were apart for 17 years before Friends Reunited put us back in touch.' Lindsey added: 'I thought about Bryan over the years, especially when I heard the song China In Your Hands by T'Pau. 'Bryans' song for me was Heart's Alone. 'We are made for each other — we were just too young to realise it before'



Philippa and Michael
April, 2012

The first time Michael and I met I knew it was going to be the start of something special. There was an instant attraction and conversation flowed. We walked down to the local Thai restaurant and as I chatted away I realised Michael had stopped listening for a brief moment and was staring into my eyes. I knew then that I'd 'got' him. We had such a wonderful evening and arranged to see each other again. Two years on we are still very much in love and due to marry in November. I am so incredibly happy that I have met someone I respect and love and will look forward to us growing old together.



Josie and Phil
April, 2012

I emailed a girl from your website who lived in my area, I knew instantly from her photo that she was going to be good fun and my kind because she had an enigmatic smile. We talked for a few days and realised we actually lived streets apart and arranged to meet up, That was it we were instantly hooked, she was as daft as me and we made a great connection, well it’s been 2 years in April this year and were happier and more in love every day, we just wanted to let you know that on August the first this year we will be married in a fairytale church wedding and we are so excited.



Marion and Brian
April, 2012

Our first date was a December day in Maldon and we knew that there was something between us. Brian is very intelligent, fun and independent – he would probably say the same about me. Our good fortune is cherished every day and our happiness has encouraged another family member to take the plunge, and try to find a suitable partner on the internet. They look as though they will have a similar happy ending. I hope our story will encourage other single people to try to find that special person to share their life.



Amanda and Mark
April, 2012

We both wanted to let you know that two years ago in July I met the love of my life on Friends Reunited Dating and we're getting married in January! I had tried lots of online dating sites, but Friends Reunited Dating was the only one where I felt the men wanted more than just one night. Having read the many profiles on the single men I came across Mark's and contacted him immediately. Neither of us have looked back! Thank you Friends Reunited Dating for making us both so happy.



Jane and Steve
April, 2012

Steve's profile stood out to me because it seemed like he has a good sense of humour. When we finally met up it was instant rapport, we talked in the pub for hours. I was totally smitten, Steve drove to my house the next day and our relationship went from strength to strength. Steve has been so good for me, given me back my self confidence, we are currently building an extension so that our large family can stay when they visit.



Rachael and Rich
April, 2012

Rachel and Richard met through Friends Reunited Dating and after chatting for a few months decided to meet up. 'I was smitten by this tall handsome blonde from the moment I laid eyes on him!'. On their first anniversary they got engaged and got married in a very traditional church wedding. Rachel and Richard have been together 5 years now. They say 'Thank you Friends Reunited Dating for helping us find out soul mate!'



Janie and Tony
April, 2012

I was registered on FRD. I searched and found someone I was interested in. I sent him a mail and in October he contacted me. We saw one another, talked for hours and decided to meet up again sometime. I was smitten. He rang me the next day and asked me out again for the following weekend. After a second date we just knew we were meant to be together. We have now moved in together and are so happy it's crazy.



Daryll and Diane
April, 2012

Daryll send me a wink and I replied even though he lived far away – I must have sensed something special about him! We talked through your website every night, often until 3 in the morning. We met face – to – face after a couple of weeks – we knew we were in love before we even met! After a proposal at the top of the Empire State Building we are now married and we have never been happier.



James Clayburn, Mirepoix , Andorra La Vella
December, 2012

I found that if you tell the EXACT truth about everything then the REAL people will come out of the woodwork. Most of your members seem to have very unreal expectations of who is out there. Your algorithim based questionairre lacks REAL questions about peoples lives and what they expect. This wastes much time.
I have found a delightful and exactly matching partner.
Thank you for your service.



Lee and Emily , Andorra La Vella
April, 2012

I knew as soon as our eyes met that I had met a very special person who I wanted to get to know more. The first date was relaxed and casual; a few drinks, lots of smiles and laughter. We quickly developed a relationship that has grown in strength each day. If I could give some advice to anyone on Friends Reunited Dating it would be, be true to yourself, enjoy life and be happy.

Sue and Bob , Andorra La Vella
April, 2012

I met Sue through your website, I was attracted to her looks and musical interests. Thankfully it was mutual attraction. The first date went very well, except for the unexpected arrival of her twin brother and his partner so we ended up having a meal together, I hadn’t planned to meet her family so quickly! We have been together ever since and married this year.



Kim and Darren , Andorra La Vella
April, 2012

Darren contacted me on the site with a message and we chatted for a while. Then we met for lunch halfway between both our homes. We both felt an instant attraction to each other, we laughed a lot, had very similar views on everything (except cars!) Neither of us wanted the date to end. Internet dating is a really great way to meet people.



Michelle and Alan , Andorra La Vella
April, 2012

I just wanted to thank you for helping me to meet the girl of my dreams, Michele and myself are now married after meeting on your website Friends Reunited Dating. We have now bought our own home and have never been so happy she is my soul mate and I would never have met her without your help, so thanks once again.



Liz and Ricky , Andorra La Vella
April, 2012

After a few months of meeting we decided that we wanted to be together all of the time. We found a house that we both loved and haven’t looked back since – we have holidayed all round the world and love being together. I can’t imagine any way we would have met if it hadn’t been for Friends Reunited.



Jean and Brian , Andorra La Vella
April, 2012

When we first met we were completely at ease and chatted like long lost friends. We soon decided that we wanted to be together permanently, Brian telephoned one evening and said 'why are you there alone and I am here alone?' Brain moved in with me soon after this and we now love happily together.
