In their own words

What first attracted you to your partner?

Alexandra:
Peter: Alex is perfect, exactly the person I set out to find when joining, and to think she had to be talked in to joining then almost deleted my email until her mum convinced her to give me a go! Fate obviously wanted us to meet.

How did your relationship progress?

Alexandra: Over the next few weeks Peter and I kept emailing each other and eventually he asked me to meet up with him. I had my reservations at first, worried about safety and what exactly I would say to someone I had never met. Then, very randomly, I went to a wedding in Hockley Heath and the wedding photographer was... Peter. I couldn't believe it! I didn't go and say hello but watched from afar, as soon as I got home I text him to say that I would love to meet up.
Peter: After being together for a year and a half, on Alex's birthday after a day in Warwick I had arranged a surprise night at a hotel called Coombe Abbey where just before dinner I walked her round to the old moat and proposed to her.

What plans do you have for your relationship in the future?

Alexandra: We are living together and are busy arranging our wedding which will be next March.
Peter:

What message would you like to send to people still in search for their soul mate?

Alexandra: DatingDirect.com has allowed two people whose lives had crossed over in so many ways, to actually meet up and find happiness and companionship for the rest of our lives.
