    Hi I left my wife 6 years ago and I thought I would never find anyone else due to the fact she kept nobody will want .I'm useless ECT ECT. I decided to join a dating website and that's where I found the love of my life . She loves me for who I am we do everything together we live a simple life . It does help if you have somethings in common . I do all the jobs around the house and in return she does all the cooking most of the time . We have been sorting out our garden together which is a mistake lol as every time we go out to a garden centre she always finds something to buy but I do say if we have the she can have what ever she wants .try to work together and always communicate with each other .I tell my partner i love her a 1000 times a day and NEVER go to on an argument.

    I met my soon to be husband several years ago when I was a little child. We took it slowly at first. We are planning on tying the knot first week of September 2019. I cannot wait for our wedding day!

    Hi Tammyiane33 thank you for your kind words as they say there is someone out there for everyone you just have to look for them and I'm so glad I did keep looking

    Really glad you found love again @bluebob. It sounds like you've found someone you really click with. 
    It's a bit cliche to say it, but I think paying attention to the little things really goes a long way in a relationship. Not all of us have the capacity for grand gestures and they might be the things you remember, but it's the little, some might say inconsequential, things that make you a proper partnership.
