At last I don’t feel I have to lie about my age.Kimberly S, Seattle, Washington
I've always felt that age has nothing to do with whether someone is right for me ... I'm much more interested in whether they can go dancing with me or keep up when we go hiking! But every dating site I've tried has made me feel like I'm 'old' and that I have to lie about my age. I love that Stitch doesn't match on ages – at last I don't feel I have to lie about my age.
Real people, not con artists and scammers.James L, Flint, Michigan
I've tried a few dating sites and it's always the same. I get approached by dozens of women who say they think I'm wonderful and want to be with me. They're usually located across the country somewhere and want to chat and send me photos. Then it always comes – the request for money. I really like how Stitch is focused on ensuring that you'll only ever meet real people, not con artists and scammers.
All I want is to meet an honest person who really cares about meeting another honest person.Mary T, Boca Raton, Florida
I don't want to show up to a date to discover the person I thought I was meeting is someone 20 years older or younger, or a different person altogether. All I want is to meet an honest person who really cares about meeting another honest person ... that's why I'm so excited about Stitch.
What you are doing is so novel and refreshingVicki L, Sydney, Australia
What you are doing is exciting, and your approach of talking to the people who are interested and seeing what they want is so novel and refreshing. I think people my age often feel pretty invisible - it is lovely to be listened to and not feel obliged to cram yourself into a mold that doesn't fit.
It’s like dating without the pressure.Walter R, Sydney, Australia
I always felt that online dating wasn't for me. Too much expectation, too much pressure. I'm not looking to find the love of my life any more, after all. But Stitch is different, it's all about companionship. It's like dating without the pressure.
I’m not looking for romance, I just want a friend to learn French with me.Marion W, Baltimore, Maryland
I'm not looking for romance, I just want a friend who would like to learn French with me ... it's no fun practicing on your own! Before I discovered Stitch there really wasn't anything out there which could help me find a companion who was interested in the same things I am.
I’ve been waiting for something like this for years.Deborah M, Palo Alto, California
After my divorce I tried every dating website you can imagine. I spent over $3000 to be completely disappointed by these mass dating services that let anyone join. I don't know who is real and who isn't. I'm sent matches that are in another state! It's like no one is listening and I am one in a million. With Stitch, I feel like there is finally something that is made for someone seeking real companionship in their 60s, and not marriage. I've been waiting for something like this for years.
