“Katharine’s support, coaching and advice around dating has helped me make new friends, and increased my confidence to tackle obstacles to successful dating. I have felt encouraged to set dating goals and plan ahead to meet ladies, to inject appropriate urgency into my search for a spouse.”

“Joining a dating agency is not something I would normally do.  Going on line and everyone knowing my business was not for me. I was  attracted to Friends first when I realised it wasn’t on-line and was a very personal  service. Plus knowing it was Christians who were running the service gave me the assurance I needed to take the plunge.”

“It was a great delight to speak with you late last night on such an important journey in my life.  I have never been so excited like this before, the investment is huge and the returns I believe will be very rewarding. Looking forward to a successful and destiny fulfilling journey towards my marriage as ordained in scripture, as you have already enabled so many others on this platform of friends1st. “

“At 70 yrs of age, I seem to have become a stronger -minded person than ever I was before. Deciding to join Friends1st was sudden and decisive. I woke up one morning thinking, I wish I had a good friend with whom I could share good times and happy experiences and in that moment I knew I would ring Friendsfirst.”

“Let me thank you for accepting me to be a member of your agency. Previously I opened a dating website and I felt sick. I just thought I can’t do this; it is not for me. However when I opened your web- site the feeling was different and I felt like I was at home. When read how you started your agency I strongly felt it was a calling, a ministry God has given you. My first interactions were welcoming friendly and promising. I am feeling positive and encouraged and I can say that you and your team are the first friends even before going further. Thank you once again, and many blessings.”

“friends first is different and will work for me to achieve my dream of getting married. I need to move on in life and your service was ideal. The thing that influenced me to join was the personalised service and the fact that I am a Christian and that it is fitting I meet like minded people. I am feeling overjoyed at the journey I have now started with friends1st. I would recommend my service to my friends.”

“I am really glad that I joined friends first and bought the Finding Someone Special toolkit, it had the answers to all my questions and gave me a lot of peace about things. I had been wondering what books to buy or whether to pay a guru for advice and the toolkit took away all the wondering and mystery.”

“Thank you for sending me your updated Friends1st material. I see that  my recent Facebook posts in regard to the format of your product were misplaced, as friends1st is indeed a classy bespoke service that is the antithesis of online dating services. I have actually been married for the last 10 years but I have a friend who needs your services and I would like to pay for his membership fees”

” I always had my doubts about joining any dating site due to previous experiences that were awful. However the need to move on was pushing me not to fear the unknown and try again. I was just surfing the internet and suddenly your website popped up!! It intrigued me and I wondered why and how did this happen. I never knew about your site, and I paused and thought could this be of God. ??

It not only answered my questions running in my mind at the time but it was a relief as I read through your site. The fact that you are Christ centered, deal with Christians only, the way you have made it possible to sieve through the fake and have committed people joining, building friendships first and the rest is history. That was amazing and was my deciding factor to take the plunge.

The continuous contact from your office, on telephone, emails has been of much help and amazing. It took me a while to join, but believe me, I recommended your services to a friend who joined before I did, that’s how much trust I had in your organisation. What really influenced me is the fact you have filtered your way of doing the dating scene and dealing with genuine people in an old fashioned way that is the best!!

The journey is still at an early stage but so far am so happy, and looking forward to what is in store as I prayerfully wait on God’s leading. I will continue to tell other singles out there who have been afraid to join dating sites because of previous experiences about your organisation, especially because of your Christian virtues and because you address each individual personally. Huge blessings. ”

” I am very impressed by the way Friends First have fully explained their objectives in the form of regular telephone contact and by mail. I feel sure Friends First will greatly assist me in my endeavors to find a friend. “

“It’s been a pleasure to have registered with Friends 1st last year. I learnt a lot from my membership. I was able to meet someone and we are getting on very well. His profile was not sent to me because I had screened his age off. I would admit that I judged the profiles sent to me during my membership but thank God for the
events. That was what worked for me, we are soon to be engaged before moving in together. We are very happy and contented with each other. I have made friends from your company and have realised many are still acting like I used to act and that is judging profiles and some are even judging people during events. I’m concerned that
might keep them waiting for long. “

“So far I feel the team at first first have been fantastic, so supportive and genuine. There is a genuine hotline if I ever needed it and everyone is so supportive. I feel open and honest to give the team my true feelings. Friends1st really do care about you individually. Excellent service so far and let this continue. You don’t feel left alone once you have joined up at friends first but feel as a true genuine member and want to crack on with finding someone. “

Really, thank you very much, Sarah. “

“My attitude was why bother.
Then I did a lot of soul searching to what I really want and it was a case of nothing
ventured nothing gained, again there was a lot of thinking.
Your staff were very supportive and welcoming made you feel so secure, I feel good as its off-line,
I am looking forward in meeting new people and being so hopeful”

“Thank you for the positivity of all the people who contribute to the magazine…it does inspire.”

(Elaine from Hampshire)

“At first I was sceptical about joining Friends1st because I have been a member of several introduction agencies in the past, some of which made very convincing promises but seemed more interested in taking money off you and providing a very poor service before going out of business. I once joined an agency which cost £800 promising a very personal service and I only received a few introductions and it soon went out of business. More recently I joined Nexus which again went out of business quite suddenly a few years ago.

Friends First seems to be a big improvement on previous experiences with no less than 33 profiles received in my first batch. This is probably because of my age in that there are a large number of ladies in my age group who for various reasons are on their own and are looking to replace lost loved ones.

I took the plunge to join Friends1st partly as a result of sales calls I had from you and because you stated that you had a large number of ladies of a similar age to myself on your books.
I feel there is hope for the future that I will eventually find the person I am looking for.

I would recommend your organisation to others.”

” Merion and I would like to say a big thank you to Friends1st, in particular, Katharine who was very encouraging to myself when I was ready to give up. Katharine said to me, “You only need one” Well I found him and we both feel truly blessed. We serve an amazing God and he proves over and over that he is in control of our lives and everything happens when the time is right. God has our lives mapped out but organisations like yours help us to meet up. Many thanks and may God continue to bless the work that you do. We would like to encourage other people who find themselves in the same position as us to keep on writing and contacting other members – you will find the right person and for us, it was when we were least expecting it.
I feel there is hope for the future that I will eventually find the person I am looking for. I would recommend your organisation to others. “
