Sara Eden is 24 years old today!

The 19th September 1988 is a day I will never forget, sitting at my computer waiting for the phone to ring, having placed adverts in all the local papers and glossy magazines. Eventually it did ring and I took our very first enquiry, an estate agent living in Camberley in his 40's!
Friends, male and female would complain they couldn't meet suitable partners but thought I had gone completely mad giving up a successful career to start Sara Eden, with only enough money to pay my mortgage for two months. But I had a vision, I was in my 20's and failure was not an option, I was determined to succeed.

I used to have to convince people joining Sara Eden was a sensible decision,  they would be meeting people who wanted to be met. People with similar goals and aspirations who were also working long hours and wanted to find Mr or Miss Right rather than Mr or Miss will do.

Fast forward to 2012 how times have changed, the stigma has gone and people look at joining Sara Eden as a first resort rather than a last resort!

When couples first get together it's understandably easy to get caught up in the whirlwind of romance and planning for the future, so it's not unusual for us to find out months, sometimes years later that our efforts to introduce people have been successful. Imagine our delight therefore, when we received a lovely card and pile of wonderful family photos from Paul and Anna. We couldn't resist letting you in on the note....

"Dear Karen and Debbie

Oh dear, a very belated, but heartfelt thank you from us both for our introduction. We had our first date on 16th November and our beautiful baby girl was born 5 years later on 17th November. An absolute dream come true.

I remember visiting your office and leafing through the copious thank you letters you had received, only hoping that I would one day be one of them - and here I am!

Paul and I are so incredibly happy together and really have reached that happy place that we are all looking for.

Thank you for the love and care that you gave us both we will be eternally grateful.

Paul and Anna xx"

We can't guarantee that everyone will find their 'happy ever after' but we will do all we can to help you try.
