Why did you decide to join Match.com?
Cat: I had been single for a while and hadn’t thought of online dating until I moved to a new area, so thought it’d be a great way to hopefully meet someone great who I could get to know my new town with.
Johnny: I was just looking for the right person. I hadn’t managed to find them anywhere else.
How long were you a member on Match.com?
Cat: About 4 months before meeting.
Johnny: About 5 months I think.
How did the first date go?
Cat: I was a little nervous when we met but that vanished within minutes with Johnny’s humour which put us both at ease. We fed ducks, went for a hot chocolate, a walk, then for a drink in the pub. Time flew, we had loads in common, laughed the whole time and it was the best first date I’d had.
Johnny: It went really well. We talked and laughed a lot. Time went really quickly.
When did you meet up again after that?
Cat: 2 days later – we had 4 dates in a week!
Johnny: The first date was quite casual on the Sunday and then I took Cat to a restaurant on the Tuesday night.
What do you have planned for the future?
Cat: We got engaged in November and now have our wedding booked for 15th December this year.
Johnny: We’re getting married at the end of the year then hoping to start a family.
