View Ian and Suzannah

In their own words

What first attracted you to your partner?

Suzannah: His sense of humour through the emails and the fact that we were potentially compatible through the criteria on the DatingDirect.com website.
Ian: Her personal emails attracted me. However, her lack of photo failed to instantly capture me.

How did your relationship progress?

Suzannah: Over the last six weeks we have seen each other very regularly and met each other's families and circles of friends. We both feel that we have met our perfect match and are sure that we have a long and prosperous future ahead of us. We are compatible in every way from star signs to our outlook on life.
Ian: We emailed daily for 5 days then exchanged mobile numbers and continued the banter verbally. We followed the safety protocol as per the DatingDirect.com guidance and met for our first date in a public bar without drinking alcohol. We were instantly attracted to each other and felt that there was chemistry. Proof of the successful evening was evident in the fact that the lights were switched off in the pub and we were asked to leave an hour after last orders were called.

What made you realise the relationship was serious?

Suzannah: We both felt it was serious from the beginning.
