Here is the feedback we have received from some of our
Sorry it's taken so long, but there never seems enough hours in the day. We had
our first date in January and it was love at first sight! since then the world has not stopped
spinning, we share the same interests we have the same sense humour and we love each other more
and more each day. If it wasn't for the personal service we both received when we first joined
we never would have found each other! We would recommend joining Someone for You as that
someone special is out there.

As a woman in my early thirties, I considered myself to be fun loving,
reasonably attractive and have a good social life. However, I had not been able to find a
decent man through traditional avenues. Whilst flicking through the local paper, I came across
the advert for "Someone for You." I hadn't considered using an introduction agency before, but
decided I had nothing to lose.
I was very apprehensive about meeting the staff at Marlow, for the initial interview, but I was
immediately put at ease. I found their approach to be friendly, relaxed and informal. However,
I was reassured by the thorough checks that are made on each new member.
After my membership had been processed, I spent a couple of evenings meeting some very charming
and friendly men. The idea of a "blind date" can seem quite daunting, but very quickly, the
nerves fade away.
My third introduction was with a particularly lovely guy. We realized
very quickly, that we had lots in common; likes, dislikes, background, sense of humour and
general attitude to life. We clicked almost straight away and met each other for the following
three consecutive evenings.
Eight months later we are still together. We have spent several weekends away and are now
looking forward to our first holiday together. Who knows what the future holds for us both,
but I feel as though I have been given the opportunity to get to know a truly fantastic man.

My apologies for taking so long to write, life has been extremely hectic.
Well, what a difference a year makes. I must say thank you as my life has been completely
turned around thanks to you.
I have to be honest, I was hesitant in making the initial contact with you. It was at a time
when I was feeling low, thinking would it be worth joining an agency as I doubted I would ever
find the right person. I must also say there may have been some embarrassment on my part,
resorting to an agency to help find a partner.
Well you and your agency are amazing. From our initial interview you made me feel comfortable
and in your own way, you helped me focus on my positive points and feel more confident even
before my first introduction (you should be a counsellor).
Your personal attention to
finding suitable introductions and the follow up analysis of how each meeting went was
excellent. Each of the first four introductions went very well, I met some very nice and
friendly people. Whilst there I was very nervous at the outset, I started to enjoy the
introductions and I think the candidates you matched me with all helped to build my confidence
and I am sure this helped me in becoming a ‘better’ more confident person.
Then there was
the fifth introduction. Well, the chemistry is there and we have been together now for the best
part of a year. Need I say more apart from well done, you did what you set out to do and found
the right partner for me.
I now actually tell people that I joined an introduction agency (without feeling embarrassed
about it), and that I can honestly say it has got to be the best move I made.
Once again, thank you very much.

Following my divorce, and the ending of the five year relationship which followed it,
you would probably understand that I was left with the feeling that, maybe, relationships were not
for me. It was with some scepticism therefore that I received a friend’s recommendation to consider
joining an introduction agency. However, after much thought, I decided to follow my friend’s advice
to talk to his suggested contact, Someone for You. My experience since then has proved that this was
one of my better decisions.
I was 49 years old, not in bad nick for my age and, importantly, positive in my view that I still had
much to offer to the right, 'special person'. Further, I took the view that meeting people through
an agency, where I could be sure that those people had at least expressed an interest in meeting me,
was preferable to trusting to the somewhat imprecise discipline of
'chatting someone up in a pub'.
Someone for You satisfied one of my main criteria, in that it was local to my hometown (I am aware
that some of the national agencies are likely to match clients with little regard to geographical
separation). When I met with Someone for You I was immediately put at ease by their friendly,
informal, yet meticulous approach to the initial interview. I was reassured by their care in
determining my preferences, and also by the steps they take to ensure the safety and security of all
Since then, several months have passed and I have had four introductions through
Someone for You. All those I have met have been charming, interesting people whom, without exception,
I have been very pleased to meet.
Four months ago I was introduced to my fourth contact. As soon
as we met the conversation flowed easily and naturally. We found we had many common interests and
also that we shared a common sense of humour. The evening went so well that
'a quick drink' became a
relaxed and enjoyable dinner and when the evening came to an end it was agreed that we both wanted to
The four months since then have passed very quickly and we have enjoyed many such meetings. Our
relationship is growing stronger and we feel very grateful to Someone for You for introducing us. We
don’t know what the future holds, but we do feel very happy with the present!
Maybe you could be as lucky in your search?

Breaking the stigma of introduction agencies. My
perception was 'They met under the clock at the station each
wearing a red carnation'. This must be one of my earliest memories, I was
in my forties, divorced, not that unattractive but the force of gravity had begun to have an
undesirable affect on my body. I had the philosophy that there is someone out there for everybody. I
took the plunge and joined Someone for You Introduction Agency.
I chose Someone for You because it was local, had an excellent reputation and I clicked with the
people at my initial meeting. They had a very relaxed approach, put me at ease and were very thorough
with their interview technique. Being a woman it was important I felt safe and secure with the
agency. I was asked about my life, work and the kind of person I would be interested in.
About a week later I had a call from Someone for You to say they had found someone! They told me a
little about him and he fitted my agenda so far, so I agreed that he could telephone me. He called
the following day and we chatted for ages, I liked the sound of his voice! We agreed to meet for
coffee a few days later at the station. (No I did not wear my red carnation!)
As soon as we met I felt attracted to him. So we headed off to a nearby coffee shop. The conversation
was flowing freely, I soon discovered he shared my sense of humour which broke the ice, phew! The
evening was going so well we found we had a lot in common, so we decided to have dinner together
which was very relaxed and enjoyable. When the evening came to an end and my heart stopped pacing!
we decided to see each other again ……… Well, four months later we are still together. The
relationship is getting stronger, I have found a good companion, friend and soul mate. Who knows
what the future holds ………Just watch this space!

I met a very attractive lady who was great company. After we had known each other
for a few weeks she came round for a cup of coffee and suddenly broke down in tears. Naturally I
asked her what was the matter. She completely stunned me by saying “I feel so lonely”. I told her
that I would have thought that men would be falling over themselves to get to know her. She said
that they didn’t ever come up to her. Then it struck me – they were scared of rejection so they did
nothing. Remember, anybody can feel lonely.
There are many reasons for being lonely. You may have lost a loved one, gone through a separation or
divorce, moved to a new area or recently lost your job and found yourself with time on your hands
and no one to share it with. By joining Someone for You, I made a very important decision, I decided
to do something about it.
Unfortunately, in this frenetic world, many of us spend so much time working or simply surviving
that we forget that we were put here to live life to the full. When the realisation dawns on us,
we can find that we have lost the art of meeting people on a social level. It’s not that we are in
some way different; we have just been concentrating on other things.
We humans seem to live a more fulfilled life if we have someone to share it with. The vast majority
of us would love to have someone to ‘share the sunset with’, or have ‘someone to come home to’ or go
to the cinema with.
Next time you go out, look around you. How many people will you see who are unattached? How many
people will you see who have the same interests as you? The honest answer to both these questions
will be ‘I don’t know’. The reason is that none of us wear our hearts, or interests, on our sleeve. We can only find out by putting ourselves in an environment, which will allow us to meet new people,
ie by joining, like I did, Someone for You!!

“Someone for You” is a dating organisation with a difference, they offer a very personalised not a computerised matching system and their friendly, caring approach towards their clients and the length of time on the first interview with each of them ensures they understand and empathise with their clients.
Someone for You selects the people they introduce by ensuring that they have interests and backgrounds likely to make them feel comfortable with each other. Following payment of the single, moderate fee, each client can be introduced to as many others as they wish. “Someone for You” also holds events at which anyone who wishes to can meet others in comfortable, informal surroundings such as a hotel bar where the awkwardness which could accompany one to one meetings is avoided.
Someone for You's personal approach to this service is the special ingredient which makes this service better than most and certainly more likely to achieve success than a computer moderated matching system. I was introduced to my partner, Tony and six years later we are still happily living together and sharing our lives.

I joined Someone for You because unlike so many other agencies they took the time to get to know me properly and understand my requirements. I was very impressed with the personal touch they offered and have been so pleased with the service provided that I would have no hesitation in recommending them. After just three introductions I believe I have found my perfect partner and cannot thank them enough for their guidance and helping me re-build my confidence after my divorce.

As a guy in my early 30’s I was working long hours and didn’t have much of a social life or the opportunity to meet someone special. I joined Someone for You because they were local and offered a personal service. I joined in March and had my first introduction in April 2006. Angela was a lovely girl of the same age and we soon realised we had a lot in common and seemed to hit it off. We got engaged in August and married a year later in August 2007. In March 2009 we celebrated the birth of our beautiful daughter. I would recommend Someone for You and tell everyone how we met and how pleased we are as we never would have found each other without their help.
