After much deliberation, I contacted Jacqui for a chat. She was warm, friendly, and very understanding of the situation and my reticence of entering the dating world again, now aged 64 and after over 30 years in my former marriage. She talked me through the process and gave me advice on how to best prepare myself for the journey ahead. With Jacqui by my side, this journey has become a most enjoyable and enlightening experience for me, in which I find I am now confident in myself, embracing my new self-awareness, and first and foremost - loving who I am!! I had two dates just after the New Year that was not for me, but lovely people. I am now on date 7 with my new lady and things are going really well, and I wanted to write this review because of the patience and understanding that Jacqui and Select Connections have shown me from my initial telephone chat right through to checking up on me after my first date.

I hear Jacqui on Radio Solent one Saturday morning and everything she said resonated with me and how I felt about the dating world today but I had no idea what to do about it. I scribbled down the website details and completed the contact form and Jacqui got in touch with me and arranged a no-obligation zoom consultation. I felt that Jacqui understood my fears and inhibitions and she seemed to be able to relate to everything I was feeling which made me feel I had chosen the right person to put my faith into on this very important and personal matter. I could go on, but I will be brief - nearly 2 months on and I am nearly 5 weeks into dating a lovely man that I would never have chosen myself, but on Jacqui's advice I gave it a go, and he is so interesting, interested and much more - I feel like a 16-year-old all over again, butterflies as well.

I had been married for 20 years - happily married - or so I thought when my husband told me he was leaving. It was like a bombshell, I was only 50 years old. Luckily I'm really close to my daughter and she helped me rebuild my confidence, but it took about 5 years. She had read something in the paper about a matchmaking service, and she can be very persuasive, my daughter.
Jacqui made me feel safe, she was interested in me and listened as I talked. Well, with plenty of encouragement from both Jacqui and my daughter I braved my first date (a socially distanced walk). As I write this I am very happy to say that my new partner and I are still finding our feet in the relationship but I never imagined it would be so much fun.
Linda (mid 50's)
As a young man I used to love my social life, lots of friends, always out at pubs, clubs, live events, etc. It wasn't till my wife and I split up that I realised that my social circle had slipped away. I tried the dating sites, but I missed the buzz of being meeting people, and making a connection before you ask a lady out.
I saw the Select website, and meetup group and went to a few online events. OK, it was online, but it felt a bit more my kind of thing, so I decided to dive in. My first dating connection didn't get past a zoom chat, but Jacqui coached us both through the feedback and we moved on with no bad feelings. My second connection is a big hit so far, we seem to be getting on really well, although it's early days and I'm still crossing all my fingers.
