Success Stories
We were both on Gourmet Dating and at first it seemed unbelievable that we lived just a mile from each other. That gave us plenty to talk about because we both were familiar with local places and knew the same restaurants. We agreed that our dating would be just a friends thing - just someone to go out with, as we were both recovering from relationships that had gone wrong. Our first date was 6 months ago and we kept to our word, but as the weekly meals out became better and better we realised that we were going to be friends forever. The passion we shared for food helped us to build what I think is an amazing relationship and I wouldn't change this for the world.
