Somewhere in 2014 I receive a Facebook message from a beautiful woman, who told me that she met someone on our site! Upon reading her message I could not help but be excited for them and just  feeling so thrilled of their new found love that started on our very own dating site.

I guess that is just the emotional side of me, plus knowing that running a transgender dating site and receiving messages from members that they met somebody form our site is always exciting and fulfilling. However I cannot deny that there is a small part of me feeling doubtful yet hopeful that they would last.

The guy is from Ireland and she is from the Philippines. Amazingly, pictures from these couple popped up on my Facebook news feeds from time to time, and you can see from their pictures that they both are into each other. Every time I came across with their photos made me feel assured that they are going very well, and really happy for each other.

Those glimpses from her Facebook posts of their moments together made feel accomplished for creating Apparently there was more to the photos that are popping up on my Facebook feeds.

Last January 21st 2016, I receive this.

We were invited to their wedding, and I was speechless looking at their beautiful invitation. In awe of the fact that as the creator of the online dating site we made two souls met and now their getting married. We flew to Manila before the wedding day, and in the morning of the 21st of February 2016 we drove to Bulacan where the ceremony was held.  As we arrived in the venue, the staff were preparing the garden inspired wedding. I told my self this is every transgender woman’s dream wedding. So we rush to our room, to freshen up and prepare for the big day. It was a big day for us too because it was our first time to attend a wedding of a couple who met on our site. The place was ready and we were ready!  Are the couples ready? They are nervous and excited!

We feel so honoured to be part of a very special moment of their lives.  Witnessing such lovely celebration is very unforgettable. It feels so fulfilling to know that real love happens  through online dating sites. The couple showed so much gratitude for creating a transsexual dating site where it is clean, decent and  mainly for people searching for genuine relationship.

To Glen and Genstein we are forever grateful. They told us they found love on our site, we say we found you as our new friends.
