I recently was asked do an editorial for a wedding feature in a magazine. On saying that, do single people look at wedding articles and why would they be interested? Perhaps hopefully for the future... when that special days arrives. I thought that I would write a survival guide of what to do it you are on your own.
I was asked to go along to The Twelve O'clock Show on Saturday 15th February on the lunchtime programme with Livvy and Chrissie on BBC Radio Bristol and to chat about the Agency. It was all about Valentine weekend (if there is such a thing) with topics about dating, plastic surgery and keeping youthful, the meaning [...]
A message from M and J ......... If you recall, we met each other through Caroline Crowther in March and since then, it has been rather hectic. We spent 8 days in the Cotswolds in May and in June we moved into our new home together. We are now looking forward to spending our first [...]
M is a tall, well presented and a good looking chap who is just in his early 50’s. He is interesting but has been busy working in his own business and had little time for himself. M has two children who are teenage years who are a big part of his life; he is a [...]
We have two new gents in their 60’s +, both back ground professionals and looking for that special person in their lives. […]
Last month I was invited along to BBC Bristol Radio to talk about dating for the mature! I spoke about clients in their 60’s, 70’s and early 80’s who just cannot face the fact that they are alone. It was about lonely, more mature people in later years, their experiences and their expectations! One programme [...]
We have been unusually busy this month with many enquiries and new clients joining us… it can be a quieter time for many people considering this but on the other hand, the seasonal time is approaching fast and people just cannot face being alone during the Christmas festivities. […]
In November we have had two happy couples who have now ceased their membership with us after finding that ideal partner! One couple has sent us a huge bouquet of flowers to thank us for their introduction and remarked about how happy they are. The gentleman had been widowed after a long and happy marriage [...]
Anyone who watched this week’s episode of “The Apprentice” and who has tried to meet someone through an agency, will have been amused at the candidates’ (mostly in their 20’s) bungling attempts to set up an online dating website. One of the groups decided to target the ‘50 plus’ group. After interviewing a small collection of more mature people the group concluded that people of that age would find it very difficult to meet potential partners The promotional film that they made was cringeworthy in the extreme with frail, elderly looking people and all the women wearing lilac. We have people of all ages on our books. Many of our members are well over 50. They do not feel frail and elderly. Most of them lead busy and active lives. Activities include running marathons, sailing and adventure holidays. We are frequently amazed at how young many of our over 50 members look.
We have had a couple of months with some lovely success stories with people who have met their ideal partner and now cancelled their membership. One couple in their 60's have decided that they were made for each other and blissfully happy and we have had news of another couple who met several years ago [...]
