I started talking to Trina over three months ago now. She was my only date through the website but we hit it off straight away. We haven’t been apart a day or night since and we’re now starting to set up a new home together. We first met at a pub near to where we live. After Trina read my profile we realised we just had so much in common, we can talk about everything and anything. I love her to bits.
Phil and Trina

Having tried various other sites with no success at all, it was very encouraging to start to receive genuine messages quite quickly. After three meals out with other ladies (who were very nice, but no spark), I got in touch with Sue and arranged to meet at a National Trust venue. Although due to confusion on my part we ended up in different locations, it turned out well and our relationship has continued to improve and flourish. I would recommend the website and tell people to persevere. Good luck to everyone!
Kevan and Sue

I winked at him first. I loved his photographs and I read in his profile that he liked the outdoors and being active. These qualities really appealed to me. He immediately suggested meeting for coffee. I felt easy and comfortable with him straight away and enjoyed his lively mind. We’ve had many more days out together since. We spend time walking in the country and going out for meals together. So far – so good. He’s a nice man.

Dear Diary

Dear Diary

Diaries are a great way to get noticed on the site, have a look at what’s been going on in the world of You’ve Pulled last week.

Christina Says:
“It’s a tradition in our family to go and get the tree together and then spend the evening dressing the tree to the sound of Christmas music, carols and drinking mulled wine. Oh how I’m looking forward to Christmas!”

Sarah Says:
“I think that it’s best to have some clear and close up photos to show people exactly what you look like. I am a ‘what you see is what you get’ sort of woman, but am wondering whether my latest photo is a bit too honest. I look a bit pale without any makeup, but don’t wear much anyway. I would appreciate any feedback…”

Debbie Says:
“I’d describe myself as a fairly successful, confident, hard-working gal with a dry sense of humour and a pragmatic head on my shoulders… Here’s me having promised myself not to advertise, going on like a washer woman! Have a great day, whatever you have been doing!”

Jane Says:
“I’m onto a second date – same fellow. Let’s just say our first date wasn’t altogether a match made in heaven, although I admit that even though we seemingly had opposing views on everything, it was surprisingly refreshing to agree to disagree. He requested my company again, how could I possibly decline the opportunity to get the last word in?!”

My husband, David and I are so grateful for the website, as without it, we never would have met. We saw each other’s profiles and got talking 9 months ago and I’m pleased to say we are now happily married! We started by going on a few dates and it just felt right, the relationship went from strength to strength. After just 5 months, David asked me to marry him and of course I said yes! It wasn’t a big wedding, just a small ceremony and it was perfect.

After a few messages, Frank invited me to a restaurant and we got on really well. We decided to go on a second date and he said he’d take me to the seaside. He took my hand and we walked along the beach together. We remained hand in hand for the rest of the day! Since then, we’ve been canoeing on the River Severn, rowing in Stratford and we’re planning on punting on the River Cam at Cambridge soon. We’re really enjoying each others company, it’s all been wonderful!

Jayne contacted me first and we sent messages back and forth for a couple of weeks. We had lots in common and got on really well. We decided it would be a good idea to meet and so we had our first date in a local Indian restaurant. The date went well and we had a quick peck goodbye. There have been lots of dates since and we now live together! Our hopes and plans for the future are just to stay together, as happy as we are now.

Dan sent me a message in January and I was attracted by his smile, so sent him a wink. After chatting for several weeks, we had our first date on Valentine’s Day. We spent the day wandering around town, before going for a meal, and have been together ever since. We divide our weekends between both of our home towns and are talking about moving in together. We would definitely encourage people to keep searching for love online – you might end up the happiest you have ever                                                       been! Claire & Dan

02

Martyn said the moment he saw me he knew I was the girl for him. For me, it was his funny sense of humour. He always makes me laugh. For our first date he took me to a chinese restaurant and afterwards we shared our first kiss outside the restaurant. Since then we’ve been on many dates. We’ve booked a holiday to Bournemouth in the summer and are planning a winter break to Tenerife later in the year. It worked for us and it can work for you! Julie & Martyn

03

Justin and I met a year ago after I sent him a wink. We clicked straight away. We discovered that we grew up in the same area but our paths didn’t cross until we joined the website. Our relationship went from strength to strength and we grew closer and closer. We moved in together in May and have shared three very happy months together. On 14th August Justin proposed and I was delighted to accept! We are now excitedly planning our wedding and are the happiest we’ve ever                                                                     been! Andrea & Justin

The Potted Pig
Situated in an old bank vault, The Potted Pig offers a constantly changing menu of largely British food, most of which comes from independent and local suppliers so you can always expect fresh seasonal flavours.
The drinks have been carefully chosen to go with the menu and with a vast array of wines, bottled lagers, beers, ales, ciders and a huge choice of bespoke gin varieties, there is sure to be something to tickle your fancy.
If The Potted Pig is booked up, why not try their sister venue Porro, located in on Llandaff High Street.
27 High Street, Cardiff, CF10 1PU

Cardiff Castle
One of the top historical places in Wales, Cardiff Castle has numerous points of interest within its ancient walls.
Take a tour of the house, see the castle apartments, visit the Norman keep, or walk through the wartime shelters – tunnels built for air raids during the Second World War – there are plenty of things to keep the conversation going!
Take a pit stop in the café during your visit for refreshments such as hot meals, sandwiches, cakes and pastries, and pop into the gift shop to buy a keepsake to remind you of your visit.
Cardiff Castle, Castle Street, Cardiff, CF10 3RB

Urban Tap House
Urban Tap House opened in 2013 as the first bar fully-devoted to craft beer and cider.
With a rotating selection of over fifteen beers on tap and fridges full to the brim with a selection of beers from around the world, beer lovers need to give this place a visit.
Their menu consists of a delicious range of burgers, sides, and bar snacks, so whether you want to pop in for a beer and a nibble or are looking for something more substantial, you can find it at Urban Tap House.

St Fagans National History Museum
Dubbed one of Europe’s leading open-air museums and Wales’s most popular heritage attraction, St Fagans is certainly not somewhere to miss.
There are a number of things to see whilst at St Fagans including historic buildings, and the castle which is a Grade 1 listed building that has been named one of the finest Elizabethan manor houses in Wales, all of which is set on 100 acres of parkland.
There are a number of craftsmen demonstrating traditional skills around the site, with many of their products on sale to the public.

Top 5 Date Ideas In Newcastle

Newcastle

Looking for somewhere different for a first date in Newcastle? Try one of our top 5 places!

1. As You Like It
The wide range of food and drink on offer should entice the fussiest of people and its opulent décor and great ambience will have you coming back time and again.
Spread out over three floors, there’s plenty of room for a large number of guests or if the weather permits there’s also a garden terrace to enjoy the warm summer evenings.
Check out their calendar before you go as there is often live music – and with the likes of Beverley Knight having performed there, you’re sure to impress your date.
Open until 2am on Fridays and Saturdays, there’s plenty of time to stay for a meal or pop in for a few drinks and with their delicious list of cocktails, you won’t want to leave!
Archbold Terrace, Newcastle upon Tyne, Tyne and Wear, NE2 1DB

2. Lane 7
It’s not just about the bowling at Lane 7, as they take pride in the excellent food in their 75 seat restaurant. The menu is heavily focused on American dining with offerings such as hot dogs and burgers, grilled cheese sandwiches, corn dogs and their famous smoked baby back ribs, smoked in their own smokery.
The drinks menu is an interesting mix of cocktails and milkshakes – which come “hard” (with alcohol) or “soft” (without alcohol), so whether you come for lunch or a night out, they have everything covered.
To keep you busy either before or after you’ve eaten, there are 10 bowling lanes, 4 American pool tables, two ping pong tables, two beer pong tables (yes, you read that right!) and a private karaoke room to choose from so you certainly won’t be bored!
There are also a wide range of ever changing activities on offer in their basement including mini golf, big screens and short tennis.
80-90 Saint James’ Boulevard, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 4BN

3. River Escapes
Based right in the city centre, on Newcastle Quayside next to Gateshead Millennium Bridge, River Escapes offers three different sight-seeing cruises (all with commentary) where you can relax with a drink and/or snack from the on-board bar.
If you are looking for something a bit more lively, then the party nights might be more your style. There are four types of party nights; two include a buffet and one, called a Barbeque Cruise, which speaks for itself!
The party nights set sail from the quayside, travel under the Millennium Bridge, right out to the mouth of the river where you can catch the spectacular views out on deck or party the night away at the disco inside.
So whether you’re looking for a quiet date where you can see the sights of Newcastle or you’re looking for something a bit more upbeat, River Escapes has something for everyone… If you like boats that is!
East Quayside Pontoon, Newcastle Quayside, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 3DX

4. Exit Newcastle
For a totally unusual and quirky date, head over to Exit, a live game situation where groups of 2 or more are locked in a series of rooms with the objective of escaping within an hour.
To find your way out you’ll need to complete a variety of challenges and follow a number of clues that direct you through the game which if completed correctly and quickly enough will allow you to find the exit!
This is a date that will make you work together as a team giving you the perfect opportunity to get to know each other and find out how compatible you are.
Games are changed every so often so if you enjoy yourself, keep an eye out to see when new games are added.
67a Westgate Road, Newcastle, NE1 1SG

5. Sage
Located in Gateshead Quays, on the south bank of the river Tyne, Sage is one of the North’s best concert venues and centre for musical education.
Hosting concerts from a wide range of internationally famous artists and musicians, from the likes of Badly Drawn Boy to Gladys Knight, from Lord of the Dance to Diversity, there’s sure to be something you want to see!
Sage also plays host to a number of music workshops so why not learn a new instrument or be a part of a choir for a day – jump in and try something new!
Saint Mary’s Square, Gateshead Quays, Gateshead NE8 2JR

1I contacted Dawn first after she said she’d ‘maybe’ like to meet me via the Encounters section. Our first proper date was the cinema. Dawn was sweet and had a lovely smile and sense of fun. We have since been bowling, out for coffee, dinner, pubs, a weekend in Tring and a holiday in Devon! In the future we hope to move in together, sharing our lives together with our children, marriage and getting 2 dogs for our seaside home! Keep persevering, I did, and now 6 months later I’m in a very happy relationship with someone who I love and who loves me for being me. Don’t rush everything on a first date, keep it fun and friendly!
Paul and Dawn

2We knew straight away that we had a lot in common and we shared the same sense of humour. The more we messaged each other the more we knew we wanted to meet up, so I asked Karen if we could meet up for a drink at a local pub. We clicked straight away, and the rest as they say is history! We are both very happy together and are moving in together in a couple of weeks! I joined the site because Karen messaged me and I wanted to message her back, but I’m so glad I did! We are both very happy together, very much in love and I would recommend this site to anyone!
Brian & Karen

3I first contacted Graham by winking at him. Our first date was a meal in a nice restaurant where we spent the whole night laughing. We did have a wee kiss but Graham was holding back, such a gentleman! In the future we have already organised a holiday, T in the park, we are going to a wedding and generally doing things as a couple. We never thought we would fall in love so quickly! The site definitely worked and we hope to inspire the other singletons out there. We are so happy together and can’t thank you enough for bringing us together. We see wedding bells!
