Success story – Caroline & Steven
We love a success story here at happily! We set up our members Caroline & Steven for a Valentine’s date and now they are both happily together!
It all started last year when Caroline told her key worker, Pauline, that she would like to find a boyfriend. She was interested in meeting someone who liked the same things as her so that they could go out and do things together.
Pauline supported Caroline to sign up to the happily project so she could meet new people safely. We created a profile for Caroline and began to suggest potential matches.
After a short time, we let Caroline know that a man named Steven had seen her profile and would like to meet with her. Caroline was a little nervous to meet him at first, but she was also excited. After taking some time to think about it, they decided to meet at a familiar local café. The date was set for Valentine’s Day, and Caroline was supported on the day by Clementine, who knows Caroline very well. This helped Caroline to feel more confident and overcome her nerves.
Steven and Caroline hit it off straight away. They enjoyed coffee and cake and discovered that they have a lot in common and are both very adventurous. They both wanted to see each other again, and have since been for lunch together, museums and even a holiday trip to Bognor Regis.
Steven has nothing but kind words to say about Caroline and Caroline likes Steven very much too. They are now boyfriend and girlfriend and looking forward to many more adventures together.
