We love our jobs and there's nothing better than hearing from happy couples who have got married, had babies or simply shacked up and are living the dream (you can read about some of our success stories here). However, not everyone likes to make such a song and a dance about it; they just quietly leave the site to enjoy their new found happiness, leaving just a lovely bit of feedback for us. We love hearing from our MSFers, whether they want to share good news, dating disasters, or general quibbles and queries, and today we'd like to share with you some of the lovely things people have said about their time on MSF.

There are an infinite number of conversational subjects that you might touch upon on a first date and no doubt they will be as sparkling and fascinating as you are but, if you want to make that good impression and secure a second round, there are a few subjects that you'd be wise to avoid, whether you've had one too many or not.
