Being part of the Stitch “family” has been just a fantastic and wonderful experience. Just over a year ago I realised I had to make an effort to join something, somewhere, somehow. The members I’ve come to know will be part of my life for a long time. Stitch has been such a positive experience and has brought me back to life. I want to thank everyone at Stitch for giving me something to look forward to again.

How on earth did you attract such amazing people to Stitch? I am so amazed … such a far cry from the simplistic and quick conversations everywhere else. I really am blown away. Keep on doing what you are doing, Stitch is so unique.

Stitch is a really amazing way to meet people, with the screening you do, I didn’t feel vulnerable to scammers. I honestly signed up to Stitch to look at group outings, holidays & discussion forums. Curiosity made me check out a couple of profiles, I only clicked interested on a couple, I had a brief chat with one gentleman, and he & I had a couple of chats, long phone call, and met face to face. We've been very happy since.

Thanks for Stitch. It is a great place to meet real people. There is no other place that I have found to make these kinds of connections on a daily basis and I look forward to our sharing time. You have helped make the world a village for so many of us and I thank you for that.

Stitch opened that door for me to allow me to step outside of my little bubble of a world and be creative and less a hermit of habit. I really don’t like being so alone, Stitch allows me to meet not just men, but people of all walks of life. Some widows like me, some wild and “out there”, and some just needing to know that everything is going to be alright.

I really don’t know what I would do without Stitch in my life right now. I was on a downward spiral of depression. Then I took a chance and decided to check this thing called Stitch out never knowing what a blessing it was going to be in my life. I have a few tears running down my cheeks as I type this out. But really, I just can’t thank you enough!! I feel alive again.

There's more fun to be had after 50.
