I have enjoyed my dates so far and I feel sure that one of the agencies will find me someone with whom to share those special days and maybe quite a bit more – hopefully by Christmas!You may now see our list and photos of women who are in your area and meet your preferences.He is the most attractive man so far, a former financier in his early sixties.He is instantly engaging, and our conversation is effortless, covering everything from Yoga to families.Some agencies insist that you contractually agree never to sleep with anyone on a first date.Not Drawing Down the Moon, but they do suggest that first meetings should be in a hotel lounge or a café where there is sufficient privacy to talk but lots of people around. ” was my reaction when the Telegraph asked me, as a mature woman, if I would like to check out dating agencies.
All the agencies say that it generally takes five or six attempts to get it right. And, talking about what I want in my perfect partner proved in itself quite revealing.I’ve been married, and enjoyed a long relationship since my divorce in 2003. If I was really honest, Christmas, when everyone else is sitting down to the turkey and cranberry sauce with their spouses and children, can make me feel lonely.When that didn’t work, I still had my fabulous friends, work I love and, recently, a house to renovate. Then, there’s my birthday, bank holidays and August.I enjoy myself – though I have a niggling suspicion from the way Jonathan takes his leave of me at the end of dinner with a brief peck on the cheek that romance is not on the cards.I report back to Lemarc and discover that I wasn’t quite what Jonathan was looking for.
