What first attracted you to your partner?
Lisa: When I first met Mike in 2005, he seemed very genuine and loyal.
Mike: She looked really pretty on her photos. Her profile also mentioned that she hated rudeness and arrogance and I can't stand them either (and I'm neither). She also had really attractive big blue eyes that were hard not to get lost in.
How did your relationship progress?
Lisa: (Lisa met Mike when buying a flat from him, and was reunited with him a year later via DatingDirect.com) From the second date we were inseparable and have helped each other through some really difficult situations in the past year and a half. Mike has been my rock. We can't imagine being without each other now and have talked about getting married. Mike moved into the apartment I bought off him in March last year ago and our relationship goes from strength to strength.
What made you realise the relationship was serious?
Lisa: I think we both realised it was serious very early on because you don't click like we did with just anyone. There has never been any awkwardness between us and we've always been able to talk to each other.
Mike: The fact that we both wanted the same things from a relationship was really important, because we're both honest people and we can trust each other. We have always known where we stand with each other.
What do you think makes you so compatible?
Lisa: We both have a very similar outlook on life and we can trust each other 100%, which is more important than anything in my opinion. If you have trust, you can work through anything and we're both willing to compromise and do anything for each other. Our relationship is very equal.
Mike: We are so similar in every way that we can almost predict what the other is going to say next.
What is his/her best quality?
Lisa: His loyalty to the people he loves.
Mike: Her kind-hearted nature, she always knows when I'm not right just by looking at me.
Does he/she have any habits that drive you mad?!
Lisa: Lisa is always cleaning/tidying up.
Mike: Mike can be forgetful at times!
What present would you love for him/her to give you?
Lisa: A diamond ring for my wedding finger!
Mike: Just the love that she shows me everyday.
What are your plans for the future?
Lisa: We are hoping to get married sometime in the future and would like to start a family within the next couple of years.
What message would you like to send to people still in search for their soul mate?
Lisa: All the bad experiences you have before you find Mr Right make you appreciate him all the more when you find him. Trust your instincts - if they are telling you that something isn't right then it probably isn't. The right man doesn't give you heartache. Have faith!
Mike: Always trust your instincts. There is a soul mate out there for everyone, be patient and don't rush into anything.
