View Tim and Jenny

In their own words

What first attracted you to your partner?

Jenny: His picture! I liked the look of him in his picture and liked his written profile, so much so that I put him in my favourites box and emailed him the next day!
Tim: The first thing I noticed was her amazing smile when I looked at her profile. After this I found out about all of her other fantastic qualities and was sold!

How did your relationship progress?

Jenny: We meet up at The Bull (a pub near us) for a drink, chat and a spot of lunch. Although I was suffering from a cold and Tim was suffering from hayfever the conversation never stopped, so much so that we didnt realise 4 hours had passed. We had out first kiss in the car park (after he showed off his car of course). From that we emailed, text and called each other. Our second date was arranged for the following week where we went for dinner, the cinema then for a drink, another kiss at the end of the evening secured the 3rd date (my choice) of bowling, where naturally I beat him by a mile! Seeing as I spent most of my time at Tim's and regularly stayed over, it gradually led me to bring some of my stuff over, and without realising or announcing to anyone I had practically moved in with him.
Tim: We started emailing each other and chatting on MSN. We emailed regularly (probably everyday) but didnt meet up until 2 weeks later.

What made you realise the relationship was serious?

Jenny: For me it was only after a few dates and Tim had gone to Brighton for the weekend to visit friends and he decided to come back early as he wanted to see me and spend time with me.
Tim:

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

Jenny: We have recently opened a joint account together and are currently house hunting (joint mortgage!) in the local area. Although we haven't bought a house yet it hasn't stopped us from ordering a new leather sofa! Also I have tried on engagement rings (so he knows my ring size and what style I like) - just waiting for that time he gets down on a bended knee.
Tim: We've also decided to get a kitten, we pick her up next month.

Questions for the couple

Questions for her:

How long were you a member of DatingDirect.com before you met and did you meet anyone else first?

I was on DatingDirect.com for six months before I met Tim. I had about six other dates. I would say the dates went well - it was quite apparent whether there was a mutual attraction or not (and obviously in most cases, not).

Questions for him:

How long were you a member of DatingDirect.com before you met and did you meet anyone else first?

I was on the site for approx a year. I went on three other dates before meeting Jenny.
