It Started With A Date
Louise and Nathan were matched during an activity at our Valentine's Ball. They had previously met at the Wainwright club event night so they weren’t too nervous on their first date. They were both excited and Nathan had bought a box of chocolates for Louise, she was delighted to receive them.
They were both looking forward to watching the film, ‘The Greatest Showman’ which was enjoyed by them both. Afterwards they went to McDonalds for a drink and a chat. Louise and Nathan have been together now since March 2018 and have been on several dates, to the pub, into town and have visited each other’s houses.
They are supported by different agencies and feel that their staff have helped them to develop the relationship. They phone each other every day and manage to meet up as often as possible, including continuing to attend the Meet 'N' Match events in Blackpool each month. They both say that they are ‘in love’ and are very happy at the moment, they are not as lonely as they were before. Louise says that Nathan makes her feel very special. In answer to the question ‘what are the next steps for you?’, they told me that they were planning to meet each other’s parents and hope to get engaged in the future.
