Deborah Cox, 51
Before being matched in 2011, Deborah was a single mother with two children.
“Brian wasn’t my usual ‘type’,” reveals Deborah when she explains why she’d recommend that everyone give matchmaking a try.
“Ideal seem to know more about you need rather than what you think you want,” she says, adding, ”The rest is history. We have six kids between us so we now have a huge family with two grandkids as well.”
Before being matched in 2017, Rob spent ten years looking for the love of his life.
On 5 August 2017, Rob and Caty had their very first date and the rest as they say, is history. “Our love and care for each other is very deep. We have a very open and honest relationship. Caty is a beautiful lady whom I love dearly. “It took me 10 years to find Caty and I am not going to let her go. Linda thanks for all your assistance and help,” said Rob.
Carrie Wilson, 32
Before being matched in 2011, Carrie was single after coming out of a long term relationship.
“It was strange not being able to see what they looked like,” she recalls of when she first started with matchmaking, “but it was part of the process and to think outside the square. A connection doesn’t always just build on physical appearance but that of personality and similar goals in life.”
While Carrie had some doubts about matchmaking initially, it was her bond with her matchmaker that helped her through the process. “I had some doubt with whom I was being matched with,” Carrie reveals, adding, “I never gave up, though.” Carrie and Gerritt tied the knot in 2015. “He’s now my best friend and my husband.”
