Two Louth women are hoping love will be in the air when their new ‘Dating Dimensions’ service takes off having been launched last month.
Though teacher Lindsay McKinnell and medical services manager Helen Dunning are both now in happy relationships, the pair say they want to lend a helping hand to singletons having been stung by blind dates and websites in the past.
Their new venture is described as an ‘old fashioned introductory agency with the personal touch’ and they are looking to match up potential couples in the area.
Lindsay said: “We’ve had bad experiences with internet dating and now we want to help people in our own way.
“They might be looking for romance or just a friend, so we’ll meet them informally maybe over a coffee and see what their interests are.
“Then we’ll be able to build up a profile and hopefully find them a match and, you never know, maybe a happy ending.
“Often groups like the elderly or people in rural areas find it difficult to meet new people, or they might not know how to go about it, so we will be there to try and help.
In the future we’d like to look at the possibility of events like speed dating nights and further social evenings for people to meet.
Singletons looking for a helping hand can call Lindsay McKinnell on 07964 624191 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
