Despite the fact that she lives in England and I in Dublin, we met and began what is now a serious relationship.
I can only say that meeting Alix has turned my life around and we are now planning our future together.
Today, I’d like to take a moment to reflect on that, because it wasn’t always like this.
When I started writing for PARSHIP, Irish online dating was still in its infancy and going online to find a date still had a certain stigma associated with it.
Compared to other dating sites, this method streamlines and focuses your search - much better when you're new to online dating or searching for love again.
Elite Singles matches are made with longevity in mind, but that’s not all.
We aim to deliver a smooth browsing experience that ensures you can easily find Irish singles with whom you share real chemistry.
Not that many dating sites served Ireland then and of those that did, most were actually UK sites that had a certain percentage of Irish singles on their databases.
People were still wary of meeting “strangers off a dating site” or telling their friends and family they’d met someone online or even that they’d signed up to a dating site in the first place.
