In the middle of this pandemic, the last thing I wanted was to have to resort to online dating but I was determined to stay on course in my search for love. Elite are still organising matches and dates within the restrictions and the two video dates I’ve had so far have been with men who are pretty much exactly what I asked for.

The second was with Matt and we prepared a meal online and shared cooking tips. We both got a little competitive pretending we were MKR contestants. It was hilarious. This week we’re going for a run together which we both love to do. One of the many reasons Trudy matched us.

Thank you Trudy for your diligent screening process, cutting through all the trash and putting me only with the type of people really worth considering as a true life companion.”
