To get your membership going we will hand craft your profile (from the information you give us on your application form) and include two photographs on it. We would recommend one recent head and shoulders one of you and then another picture illustrating something you enjoy doing in your life. Your profile will include a box number (for people to write to you – through us – so that your personal address is never displayed) and the option to include an email address and telephone number. It’s totally your choice.
We will offer you an (optional) complimentary photo shoot with a professional photographer in your local vicinity and suggest you use the pictures taken on your profile. This ensures you will have fabulous photos on your profile. What’s more it’s a professional photoshoot is fun thing to have done (however much you hate having your photo taken!)
Before your membership starts, along with your own profile to review, you will be sent your Welcome Pack (which includes a wealth of advice on your membership) and our ‘Top Tips for making friends and having successful relationships’ book, and a further book relevant to your marital status. This will be either ‘How to be the One’; ‘Risking Romance Again – Dating after Divorce’ or ‘Looking for love the second time round – A guide for widows and widowers’. All fabulous material to get you started on your journey on the right foot, in the right frame of mind, and giving you all the tools and advice you need to make your membership a success – i.e helping you find that special person.
Once you are happy with your profile, and it has been authorized for publication, it will be sent to the members in your specified age criteria every month. In turn you’ll receive members profiles every three months starting immediately. You will always know who has had your profile..
During your membership we will be available to you by telephone to make sure everything is going as it should – we may even give you a ‘kick up the backside’ if necessary to help you be proactive – just making sure you are getting out and about and meeting all the people we have introduced you to. You will have access to us whenever you need it – so if you ever have a question, query or just want to discuss something, you can be sure that we will be here to help.
On a bi-monthly basis you will receive our members only newsletter Cloudnine through the post. Like everything else we send you, no-one but you will know what it is – and we design it in such a way so that you should you leave it lying around the house, family or friends won’t know you’re a part of friends1st because of it.
Our Silver membership includes unlimed places at our events. They are a chance for you to join other members for a delicious lunch or dinner or other type of event and to enjoy some heart encouraging chat. it’s a great way to meet people informally – and you never know you may meet your soul mate unexpectedly. You will certainly make new friends that’s for sure!
With our regular motivational email we will make sure you stay 100% focused on the goal you are looking to reach. We aim not to let you get side tracked or disheartened if you don’t find Mr or Miss Right on Day 1.
