What Our Members Say

VMM has been bringing people together for 25 years, and during that time thousands of vegetarians have found happiness, romance and lasting friendship. VMM’s files are bursting with thank-you letters. Here are some of them.

Hi Alan, Thought you might like to know that after meeting on your wonderful website 2.5 years ago, we got married earlier this month.
July 2007

Through the services of VMM I made contact with R. who is a vegan too. Over the last two months a beautiful and loving relationship has began to take shape with a very promising outlook and we are both very happy. Undoubtably without the helping hand of VMM we would never have met and been where we are today.
February 2006

I didn’t meet anyone here per se, but thanks to the coupon code for eharmony that you listed, I was able to meet someone off there. It only lasted for a few months, and that was that. I signed back up for Veggiematchmakers and met someone a few weeks later. Funny how that sort of stuff works out…

I am now exploring a committed relationship so will not be renewing. I met some really nice genuine compatible men and also new female friends through VMM so to anyone out there wondering “could it work?” I’d say “Yes, it does and there definitely are plenty of genuine people out there seeking a lifelong partner”. Chemistry didn’t happen overnight for me, but even meeting other members online or by phone was enormously helpful in working out what kind of relationship I wanted and building confidence to go into a relationship again. It can be quite daunting for people in midlife to get out socially again and meet potential partners – this is the pleasant, painless, and safe way to do it!
January 2006

I am pleased to say that I have met someone via VMM and would therefore like my details withdrawn from circulation and the website. Thank you very much for the excellent service you provide.
September 2005

I am writing to tell you that I will not be renewing my membership. This is because I have met someone extremely wonderful via your website and things are going incredibly well. Thank you for your help. I hope your website continues to provide people with the happiness that it has provided me.
September 2005

Just thought you might be interested to hear how our lives have changed as a result of meeting through your VMM site, having both joined about Nov 2002. We married Sept 2004 at Gretna Green and have recently moved to Lanzarote, to set up a small and friendly vegetarian/vegan B & B.
July 2005

Hi, I’ve met someone extremely lovely from the site and everything is going really well. Please could you take my profile off?
August 2005

After years of searching for my soulmate she turned up out of the blue on VMM and we are now planning our life together.
June 2005

Just to let you know, I have met someone special, 1st person I contacted, & he only lives 15 mins away! Thanks for being there for us.
July 2005

I am currently seeing someone that made contact with me via VMM. It’s early days but things are going smoothly at the moment – so, many thanks for running a service that made it possible.
May 2005

Hi Please could you remove my details from VMM – I’ve now met a wonderful new partner (through you!), so won’t be needing you anymore.
April 2005

Please find enclosed a picture of us both on our wedding day. We met through VMM in 2001 and have lived happily ever after ever since! Thank you for your wonderful organisation that brought us together.
November 2004

No thanks I won’t be renewing. I met someone on VMM within 30 minutes of joining. We met up in person a few days later and fell madly in love. It’s now over a year since then and we are still together and very very happy. It is a dream come true for both of us. Thankyou VMM!
December 2004

Hi,just wanted to thank you for all your help. I am pleased to say I have met someone through Vmm. We get on so well and have very high hopes for our future.
July 2004

There’s something I have been meaning to let you know for a while but the only reason I haven’t was because I’ve been wanting to tell you “with bells on” so to speak!! and unfortunately I’ve been a bit lazy, and pre-occupied!! For the past 3 months I’ve been seeing F. Together we had wanted to write a success story but not just a few words etc, something more elaborate. Since at the moment it’s a long distance relationship, and when we get together we obviously want to spend time together, unfortunately this ‘success story’ has been sadly neglected. I do apologise. So at this point I would like to say thank you for allowing me to meet F. It certainly worked re-joining!! and I haven’t been shy in telling people how we met. And maybe in the near future you wont mind if you receive our written success story? Thank again. Regards. K.
September 2001

Hi, I met CL on 4th May 2001, we’re still together and likely to get married next year! Thank you for bringing us together.
May 2002

Just wanted to thank you for the VMM service you provide as it has changed my life! I have just returned from a week’s holiday in Cornwall with another VMM-er. (Incidentally, we stayed in the most wonderful Veggie Hotel!) Rather than just paint our success story however, I wanted to tell you and others what I had learnt from VMM. First and foremost, you are absolutely right when you state that the more you put in to VMM, the more you will get out of it. Don’t just sit there waiting for people to contact you, be proactive! (Men in particular please note!!) When I joined back in April I spent one whole Sunday reading the Profiles sent me, making my selections and carefully constructing my Questionnaire and initial letters of introduction. I was only going to write to about 5 people but my sister persuaded me to write to about 10! Which I did!! However, I would suggest being ‘reasonably selective’ with your choices as it can be exhausting writing to people, chatting to them on the phone and meeting up with them, especially if they live some distance away. If like me, you’re slightly shallow and looks play an important part in determining whether there’s any future with your VMM date, don’t rule them out immediately because you don’t instantly find them attractive!! The man I’m now with ‘grew on me’ as every hour passed that I spent with him. He was my very final VMM date and I was extremely blase and non-hopeful about meeting him. His calmness, politeness, sincerity and -own blaseness towards me! – marked the beginning of a beautiful attraction!! If however, you find you and your date don’t or won’t remotely click, if you’ve arranged to meet up in a picturesque or historic location, you should at least have something to talk about and the day won’t have been completely wasted!! Finally be positive and have fun!! So it, might not work, but you can have fun trying!! Right, better go. Feel I’m already turning into a smug couple with all my relationship commandments!! Good luck fellow VMM-ers. Hang on in there … you just never know!! Remember the best might be saved until last!!
October 2001

Just to let you know that I am now seeing someone that I met through VMM. So thank you very much, I don’t really want to ‘count my chickens’, though. I also don’t want to meet anyone else at the moment so I think it would be best if you remove my profile from the VMM site. Best wishes, G.
March 2002

Hi, Just writing to let you know that since D & I met via VMM 2 years ago, he moved in with me in September 2001, we exchanged contracts on our new home today and we are getting married on 3rd May 2003! Thanks for providing such a good service!
November 2002

I believe my current membership to be coming to an end quite soon now – a time perhaps to thank you for bringing M.O. and me into touch. I know nothing about our future, but I can say with confidence that M is the person I’ve met through VMM who feels, or rather with whom I feel, most empathy and affinity – and that’s going back ’til 1987! Ironically she is, as you know, a new subscriber. VMM is, and has been for me, a comforting presence down the years. If my association is to continue at some future time, I will rejoice in that.
June 2002

I’m happy to say that I do not need to renew my membership. I met a wonderful person (on VMM actually). Thank you so much for providing this wonderful service. My boyfriend and I are very happy together (thanks, in part, to you wonderful folks!)
April 2003

Hi, Just a quick note to say how much I’ve got from being a VMM member. I’ve met some interesting women and really enjoyed the experience. I’ve been a member for over a year. I’ve recently met someone very special through VMM. S and I met first through VMM in January. We’ve become very close and we are in love. S is the most amazing woman in the world and its wonderful I met her through VMM. I’d like to thank you for the wonderful service that you provide and would encourage anyone who wants to mmet some wonderful vegans and veggies to give it a try. Thanks for everything, love, J. PS, would you like a wedding invite?
April 2003

Hi there! Enclosed is a photo of D and myself on our wedding day 4 weeks ago. We met via Veggie Matchmakers 3 years ago. We went to Barbados for our honeymoon which is a beautiful and relaxed island. The whole wedding experience was wonderful, it truly was the happiest day of my life. Thank you for bringing us together
May 2003

I would like to write a letter of thanks as my six month membership led me to meet interesting people, and the most recent has developed into a very promising relationship. I feel VMM is good value for money, keep up the good work. I will be sure to remember VMM and recommend it when meeting other vegans through the animal welfare work I do. Many thanks.
June 2003

I don’t need to renew my membership of VMM as I have met someone special through you. We are still getting to know each other but I’m feeling like a besotted teenager….With many thanks and much optimism.
June 2003

Thank you again. Your service matched me with S in Suffolk and we are about to start a life together and begin a vegan organic growing project. Undoubtedly without VMM we would not have found one another and we both say thank you and wish you all the best for the future too.
July 2003

I would like you to know that I have found a wonderful man through VMM and as such I wish my profile to be withdrawn. I thank you so much for the wonderful service you are providing for people like myself who are vegan and who struggle to meet likeminded people in other ways. Many many thanks. C.
July 2003

I would like my name removed from the dating database. Through you I have found a fantastic lady – we have much in common and she only lives 6 miles away! We are potty about each other and life is now optimistic and wonderful. I am happier than I have been for years. To have someone to care and share for again is a marvellous feeling. I has only been two months but things have moved fast as we are so good for each other. I didn’t think it could happen to me but it show that you must not give up trying and believing. Thank you. R.
July 2003

I met G through VMM and we have been seeing each other for a couple of months now. He is a lovely man and we get along really well. So, I have decided not to renew my membership, but would like to thank you for bringing so much happiness into my life! With very best wishes. R
November 2003

Have been meaning to jot you guys a line for a while but we are too busy being happy! Thanks to VMM C & I met at the end of June 2002. We emailed a couple of times, met a few days later & married last April on a beach on the Scottish Isle of Islay. We now have a fantastic daughter who is five months old. VMM are also responsible for us rescuing our lovely little dog Purdy from the local pound, as that was the place of our first meeting! So all in all it’s a big success, we are such a happy little family. Thank you. We often wonder where we would all be had it not been for VMM.
January 2004

Thanks to VMM I have now found a close and loving friend and no longer wish to communicate with other members. Please remove my name from the lists.
January 2002

Earlier this year I became a member of VMM. Never having tried such a service I had few pre-conceived ideas. I was willing to enter into the spirit of it, accepting the possibility of coming across a like-minded man after a prolonged period of membership. Not so! Within weeks of joining I was contacted by the gorgeous man, M, who is soon to become my husband (sorry if this sounds too soppy, but it’s true!) M is the closest to my ideal I could possibly find..mostly because of our similar philosophical, humanitarian, and political views, and our desire to make the world a better place for our children by all our actions, however small. He’s also very physically attractive to me..a bonus. Anyway the point of this is to say that I would like to cancel my membership forthwith as I no longer need it. We are happy for you to use the content of this email on our website/advertising as it may encourage others to find similar contentment.
September 2001

Delighted to say I don’t need to renew…have met somebody very special through VMM – very much in love and things couldn’t be better! THANK YOU!
September 2001

Hi, Just a quick note to let you know that I recently met someone through VMM and we’re both really happy, so you’d better remove my profile from the members site…Thanks for providing such a great service. It really works!
