James and Yvonne, both in their 60s, met through Classic FM Romance.
"Both Yvonne and I had used online dating successfully previously, so it seemed like the obvious thing to do when we found ourselves looking for new partners,” says James. “Our first date was brilliant; I still think back and go all dreamy! We took a walk along the river, then for a meal. By the end of the evening neither of us wanted it to be over.
"If you’re thinking of trying online dating I’d say, without hesitation, go for it. There’s someone out there for everyone and joining a site like Classic FM Romance means you’ve got a better chance of finding them. You get plenty of opportunity to communicate with people before deciding to meet up, all from the comfort and safety of home.
"Meeting on Classic FM Romance had already given us an advantage as it clearly appeals to people who are like-minded. We have similar intellects and similar interests, and we laugh at the same things.
"As for the future, the world is our oyster! We just want to enjoy each other’s company and share our lives with each other."
