Martina & Robert

Martina and Robert's relationship started in 2008, they set up home together in Yorkshire (with Martina’s son, Ben), and got married in a rural church on a beautiful spring day in 2009.

Amazing compatibility score

“Robert was the top match on my list of potential partners,” explains Martina, a freelance writer.”Our compatibility score was amazing – 84%. When I began to read Robert’s profile, I could see that there was a really interesting person behind the words … even if I could see we didn’t really share the same tastes in music!”

Martina released her photo to Robert and she was pleased to see his in return – even if it was an old black-and-white shot. “Robert’s messages showed that we could communicate well with each other. We used the site’s messaging system for several weeks, limiting ourselves to one email a day, and I really looked forward to finding out something more about him each time. Finally I sent him my personal email address and my phone number.”

Their first phone call lasted an hour. Since they lived some distance from each other, they didn’t meet until a few weeks later, but they hit it off straight away. “Since then we’ve spent the best time of our lives together,” says Martina. Until then, I really didn’t know what it meant to have found my ‘other half’.”

“I’d tried a number of dating sites,” says Robert, a university clerical officer, “and I was almost ready to give up trying, but I was struck by the idea of completing the questionnaire to enable me to find the right person.” He too was encouraged by his compatibility score, but “I was very nervous when I phoned for the first time. What would I say, would the call end in a stony silence as we both tried to think of more things to say? Fortunately, I didn’t have anything to worry about. I was again incredibly nervous when we met for the first time. I suppose we were both having the same feelings ... I think it’s probably outdated these days to say that it was love at first sight, but it really was.”
